// Sainsbury’s cuts prices on 125 summer selection products ahead of summer
// The discounts are in addition to Sainsbury’s slashing prices on over 1000 own-brand products since February
// The price cuts means customers can save a total of 15.9% on a Sainsbury’s barbecue basket
Sainsbury’s has slashed prices on 125 of its summer foods in addition to its price reductions on over 1000 own-brand products since February.
The new price cuts means customers can save a total of 15.9 per cent on a Sainsbury’s barbecue basket – £6.95 – as the UK heralds the start of summer with an expected heatwave later this week.
The Big 4 grocer expects to sell 68 per cent more burgers, 50 per cent more ice cream, 150 per cent more sun care products, and 35 per cent more rosé wine this weekend thanks to the anticipated heatwave.
Sainsbury’s also said its customers can earn five times more Nectar points for every £1 spent across selected categories – valid until July 9, and can earn 10p off per litre on fuel when they spend £60 or more on groceries in store or online – valid until July 2.
“Our customers love enjoying the sunshine with friends, family and their favourite summer food, which is why we are pushing prices down on some essential summer products,” Sainsbury’s food commercial director Paul Mills-Hicks said.
“With a weekend of hot weather ahead, we know our customers will be stocking up on everything from sausages to strawberries and they can find great quality products for fantastic value at Sainsbury’s.”
