Welcome to nine.com.au‘s Super Savings Week. We’re joining forces with the Today show to bring you all the best tips and advice to help save you money and give your hip pocket a boost.
Every week Australian supermarkets select a range of items and sell them for half price, but each retailer chooses different products.
This makes it difficult to take advantage of them all. Who has time to run around checking them all in person, or to even to collect all the relevant catalogues?
Thankfully, there are some awesome apps that list them all for you each week.

One is called Half Price: Grocery Deals, which lists the deals you will find at Coles and Woolies each week. ShopFully uploads digital versions of each retailer’s catalogues for you to look through, all in one handy spot. Then there’s Frugl which lists the best bargains at grocery retails and more.
Here are the best bargains listed in each app this week. Happy shopping!
