Save £178+ on Your Food Shopping: Singletrack Discount Of The Week

by 8

Cost Of Living Busters

Among the hundreds of Singletrack discounts you get as a member, there are some real cost of living busters. Discounts that will get stuck into food inflation and everyday household costs. We can’t all afford new Oakley sunglasses, but everyone can save on their supermarket food bills.

Let me, the MTBing Saving Expert show you how*.

Singletrack Saves.

An annual digital membership is only £25. That gives you all the cool member perks such as an advert free website, member only content, full forum functionality, and 3.8% off at many supermarkets.

Singletrack members can get 3.8% off at:

  • Aldi
  • Tesco
  • Sainsburys
  • Iceland
  • M&S

The average annual food spend is over £5,000, even more for a family, and climbing faster than a chipped eBike with food inflation running at a whopping great 17.4% (source). That 3.8% saving soon ads up and your membership can easily save you £178, or more. Check out the spreadsheet below. £178 is quite a few quid, and could pay for a weekend biking in the mountains, or your council tax for a month.

How Singletrack Discounts Work

Your Singletrack discount allows you to buy supermarket eGift vouchers at 3.8% off the face value. So, a £100 Tesco eGift card would cost you only £96.14. It soon adds up, and a small change in the way you pay for your shopping can save you a lot over a year.

The eGift cards are emailed to you, so you can start using them straight away.

Control Your Budget

A top tip for managing your food spend is to buy a month’s worth of gift cards at the start of the month, and when the 4x £100 vouchers (for example) are spent you know you have hit your budget. My wife takes 2x £100, and I take the same. Yeah, we often go beyond, but we now know when we have overspent and need to leave the steak and wine alone for a week.

Finding The Supermarket Discounts

Getting to the supermarket discounts is not straight forward, a bit like finding the best trails… it’s worth the effort.

Once logged in to the discounts page, here is how to find them: Click on Lifestyle rewards / shop / UK gift cards / retail.

Save Another 1%

You will find some banks give you cashback on your debit card spending. Myself and another STW staffer have Chase bank accounts where we receive 1% cashback on debit card spending, and also 1% interest on our current account balance when we are not spending. So, paying for the eGift cards with my debit card gets me even more off my shopping.

    I do similar through our work scheme – a £500 top-up on a reloadable shopping card costs me £475. Slightly higher discount, but not everyone has access to work schemes.

    As the article says, it all adds up and every little (NOPE!)

    Amazing, this s sounds great and will be a great help… But I can’t access the lifestyle rewards area? Click it and it doesn’t load up a new page like the other categories

    @jim25 I had that on my phone but it worked ok on my laptop. I did email the help address to report it and apparently I was the only one with that problem at the time.

    @jim25 thanks for flagging that up. I have let the discount tech people know about it. I will update on here when it’s fixed… but desktop works in the meantime.

    Shame it doesn’t work for Sainsbury’s deliveries, but still a great deal.

    Anyone known how long the vouchers take to turn up?

    Ordered some about 6 hours ago and still waiting. Have the confirmation to say we have you order. Mildly comforting.
