Shopper shares delight after paying just 60p for six cosy blankets in B&M – and here's how you can too | The Sun

THERE'S no better feeling than nabbing yourself a bargain – especially when you only realise after checking your receipt.

That's the fortunate Zoe Coles found herself in after a trip to her local B&M store.

Taking to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, she shared an image of six fluffy, cosy blankets, which usually retail at £5, piled up in the back of her car.

Alongside the snap, she enthused: "Mega bargain today in B&M. Picked these up for Christmas presents.

"Thought the price sounded low with all my shopping!

"Looked at the receipt to find these scanned through at 10p each!

"60p for 6 blankets!"

"I recommend downloading the B&M app and scanning anything to check.

"You can get loads for 10p at the right time."

Another B&M employee agreed: " I work in B&M people get loads of 10p bargains it's just good timing when they get put out…I've had 10p bargains."

The post has since racked up over 2,8000 likes and hundreds of comments from other social media users.

"Amazing deal!" wrote one.

A second praised: "Makes a change from things usually being more expensive well done."

However, some questioned why Zoe needed so many blankets.

In response, one person vented: "WHY DO SO MANY ASK WHY SOMEONE BUYS THE AMOUNT THEY DO? IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT YOU CAN BUY HOWEVER MANY AS YOU LIKE."

A second wrote: "To the people slating her…she was willing to pay full price.

"The 10p bargain was a shock. These were planned purchases so clearly all was necessary as gifts, not that it needs to be explained to us."
