If you haven't heard of HotUKDeals, you're missing out. Rather than being a price comparison engine, users of the website post great deals they've seen and others rate them either hot or cold. This makes it easy to find the best deals of the moment as you can save money on everything from DVDs to clothing and groceries.
Grocery deals have proven extremely popular - over 18,000 have been submitted by the 550,000 members in the last 12 months. Now, there's a convenient way to see those deals when you're out shopping: the new Basket Buddy app.
It's available for iOS and Android devices (for free, of course), and lists the best grocery deals in shops near you. A map shows stores for which deals are listed. When you tap on a store, the deals are shown in a list with the hottest at the top. You can rate the deals from the app and also submit new deals (a barcode and QR code scanner is built in, and you can use your phone's camera to snap a picture of the product, it's price or your receipt).
As the content is pulled directly from the HUKD website, the app lets you read user comments. These often tell you where in the country the deal is available. Unfortunately, deals aren't branch-specific which means you might not find the item at the price shown in your local store. However, as more and more users sign up and submit deals, this feature could appear in the future.
As well as deals, there are links to printable vouchers and you can save and share deals.
