Mum-of-five shares easy way she bagged huge Greggs haul for just £7… and assures trolls NOTHING will go to waste | The Sun

A MUM-OF-FIVE has bagged herself a huge haul of Greggs sandwiches and pastries for just £7.77.

Posting to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, Samantha Goddard shared a photo of her huge Greggs haul, saying she feels as if she hit the Greggs lottery.

Samantha shares she scored this great deal using the Too Good To Go app, which lets you buy food from shops and restaurants that would otherwise be wasted at the end of the day.

On the app you can purchase a Greggs goody bag for just £2.59 – you won’t know what’s actually in the bag until you pick it up so while it may not be the best for picky eaters it’s a great way to save money if it’s an option for you.

Samantha purchased three bags, spending £7.77, and while some said she was just going to end up being wasteful with the amount of food, she argued: “I have 5 sons and the other half. So it won’t be wasted at all.”

Defending Samantha against those accusing her of being wasteful, one fellow bargain hunter wrote: “Imagine being one of the people who made a comment to make you feel the need to justify yourself. God forbid someone buys enough food to feed their family.”

Others asked what time she checks the app as whenever they do almost everywhere is already sold out.

Samantha replied to this with: “Just before the shop closes. Then keep refreshing. Mine varies from updating at 5pm to 5:23pm. I’ve monitored mine and I’ve noticed mine always have stuff on Friday to collect on Saturday.”

Another group member shared that she two had bought two bags from Greggs that day, writing: “Absolutely worth it if people are unsure.

"I got panini, tuna pasta, pack of jam doughnuts, a selection of individual doughnuts, a pack of cookies, a steak bake, a chicken bake and a few other yummy stuff that the kids grabbed before I got a look in.”

Although given that it’s luck of the draw not everyone’s had successful Too Good To Go haul, with one member writing: “Everyone's too good to go stuff looks amazing. I've only done it twice and both times were really rubbish lol.”

“Did a Tim Hortons one the other night and was severely disappointed. I only got one box of timbits and they were all the same, had a Greggs one which was OK, not as much as this though,” added another.
