An anytime delivery pass lets you book a priority slot - any day, any time of the week. If you’re happy getting your shopping on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, you can get a midweek delivery pass, which costs just £4 a month.

Similar to Asda's delivery pass promise, if you don't save enough to cover the cost of your Delivery Pass, Sainsbury's send you a voucher for the difference.

Then, head to a dedicated SmartShop checkout and pay and you're good to go! The best part? You can also collect Nectar and redeem Nectar points as normal and use coupons too.

9. Hunt bargains in the reductions section

Like many supermarkets, Sainsbury's has a generous yellow sticker discounts section, where you can snap up things like meat, bakery items like bread and cakes, dairy products, and more for a fraction of the original price.

Our sources tell us the best time to go to bigger stores for the best bargains is 7pm, but it's always worth checking at any point throughout the day.  

10. Try the Sainsbury's basic range  

If you're on a tight budget, Sainsbury's basic range offers a range of cupboard staples, where you can pick up products like juice, tinned items, biscuits, and more for less.
