How to Save Money in Spain: How to Save Money with Eroski Supermarkets
21 July 2016 @ 12:21

Many Spanish shoppers think that Eroski supermarkets are an expensive chain of supermarkets. They may not be known for their everyday low prices, but Eroski supermarkets could be well worth checking out for their special offers. If you are into bulk buying, and like to take advantage of stock upoffers, you should check out Eroski supermarkets. Like so many other Spanish supermarkets, Eroski has got a magazine that they distribute once or twice per month.


Eroski have their own generic range of low cost products. It is called Basic and can offer really good value for money. This month Eroski offer canned tuna in sunflower oil for 1.29€ per pack. You can also pick up 500 grams spaghetti for 0.35 cents and 3 packs of tomato frito for 50 cents. Their tomato frito is very good and at the same time low in sugar.


However, Eroski often wins hands down with their bulk buys. If you are a keen brand buyer, you should certainly check out Eroski's special offers on things like dog food, washing powder and toilet paper. You can save a lot of money by stocking up when Eroski has the brand products that you really like. Mind you, while you are in there, check out their household cleaning range. Many of their products are excellent and do a fantastic job around the home. I personally like their bathroom and mildew cleaner, it really does a good job and better than some brands.


The Eroski supermarket also have its own Savers Club. You get a little red card and the reduced value of all of the special offers go onto that card. I know that it may not mean money off straight away, but it does not bother me. I only use the supermarket for special offers, and a couple of months ago, I used the entire balance of my card to pay for the special offers that month. It was nice to stand at the till and not have to pay anything. I would have bought the stuff anyway, so it did not really matter.


When you shop in Eroski, or buy fuel at the petrol station, you also get points on your Travel Club card which is linked to your red Eroski card. It can take a while to add up, but the products on offer for your points are good. I have had some brilliant products from Travel Club and they are delivered by courier to your door as well. You can check your points total online, and also the balance on your card. On top of that, you also get a Club Card statement every three months with special money off vouchers or extra points vouchers.


Eroski may not be a supermarket you visit every week, but it is certainly worth your while to check out their special offers on brands. You never know, they may just have exactly what you are looking for.
