Shoppers flocking to B&M for 'awesome' kids Christmas gift scanning at tills for just 10p | The Sun

B&M shoppers can't get enough of an "awesome" kids Christmas gift scanning for just 10p.

The My Arcade Plug 'n' Play portable console comes with hundreds of built-in games and usually sells for £20.

But one shopper managed to bag three of the devices for just 10p each at their local B&M store.

Posting about the find on the B&M Bargains, Extreme Money Saving Deals and More Facebook page, they said: "B&M reduced to 10p would have been £60 full price.

"Bargain, got three for my kids this Christmas."

The post has notched up dozens of likes including from one fellow shopper who said: "Wow! That's awesome!"

The Plug 'n' Play console comes with 220 in-built retro style video games including puzzle, strategy, sports and combat.

It connects directly to your TV or any other AV input and is powered by three AA batteries.

The shopper who posted on the B&M Bargains, Extreme Money Saving Deals and More Facebook page found the consoles at the 10p price point in a branch in Sandbach, Cheshire.

If you don't live near there, you might be able to find it in your local branch at the same cost, although it is unlikely.

Most stores slash prices like this dramatically when they want to clear excess stock.

If you want to snap one of the devices up, it's worth calling your local B&M branch to see if they have any in stock and at the same 10p price.

You can find your nearest store by using the retailer's shop locator tool on its website.

Always remember too, to check how the same product compares in terms of price when up against other retailers.

The last thing you want to do is buy something which you think is a bargain that turns out to be on sale for less elsewhere.

You can use websites like Price Runner and Price Spy to compare thousands of products.

Meanwhile, the Google Product tab is a quick way to scan the internet to see if you can find a product cheaper somewhere else too.

We had a quick look to see if any other retailers are selling the Plug 'n' Play any cheaper than 10p, but couldn't find any.

Amazon is the only other place selling the console – for £31.

How to save money at B&M

One sure fire way to save money at your local B&M is to use its scanner app.

You can use it to find out if an item is cheaper that what's printed on the label.

Products that are typically discounted are seasonal items and old stock B&M is trying to shift.

That, or items labelled "big brands" and "big savings".

Meanwhile, a former B&M manager revealed the best time and day of the week to visit for the cheapest prices – Wednesday at 10am.

This is when items get reduced in price to as little as 10p.
