DISCOUNT chain B&M is famous for its bargains, but not many people know that it reduces the price of certain items on the same days every week.
Savvy customers have put together a Monday through to Sunday guide to shopping at the budget store, which reveals the best days to visit for reductions on different products.

The guide has been shared by several thrifty savers in the Latest Deals, Extreme Couponing & Bargains Facebook group, which has more than 96,000 members.
It reveals that the best day for reduced items is Wednesdays.
But there are deals on a range of different items nearly every day throughout the week, according to die-hard fans.
A B&M spokesman told The Sun that there are no “set days or time frames” for when items will be reduced.
But B&M regulars said the guide works for them – so it could be worth visiting your local store to see if it follows the pattern too.
Here’s their weekly guide to shopping at the discount chain – with more details below.
A Monday to Sunday guide to shopping at B&M for the best bargains
Savvy savers reveal that Monday isn’t the best time to shop at B&M because as a rule of thumb, there are not a lot of reductions.
B&M confirmed that it marks products down on different days of the week, so there may be some around even on a Monday.
But there are better days to visit, as we will reveal.
Tuesday is thought to be when staff reduce food, drink, pet items and cleaning products.
Make sure you look out for any item with a red label, as it will definitely be reduced.
This is the biggest sale day, according to B&M regulars.
Staff will “heavily reduce” red label items, they say.
Our top tip is to download the B&M app.
It has a product scanner which you can use to check the prices of items on the shelves.
Shoppers say they often find the price on the app is lower than the one they find on the shelf.
Many stores will honour the price that flashes up on the app in these cases if you show it to the cashier – but not all.
This is the best day to snap up old stock and clearance items, apparently.
Staff are rumoured to reduce these products further on Thursdays to try and make space for new stock.
Each store has a “Manager’s Specials” section that can be full of heavily reduced items, savvy shoppers added.
How to find the cheapest dealsFOLLOW our tips and tricks to cut the costs of your shopping:
Find the cheapest online prices: Google Shopping is a good tool for finding the cheapest price – it searches a wide range of retailers of various sizes
Abandon online shopping baskets: Don’t go straight to check-out after putting the items in your basket – it may tease retailers into giving you discount codes
Ask a site to negotiate a fee for you: If you’re struggling to find a deal, Flubit is a free site that aims to negotiate discounts for you
Sign up to retailers’ newsletters for big discounts: It sometimes means a percentage discount code, or a straight discount off your first shop
Check when stores discount groceries: Check with your local store when they discount food items that are about to expire – this is the perfect time to nab bargains
From 12pm on a Friday, staff will starting reducing more items, according to the guide.
This means if you visit a store at this time, you’re more likely to have a better choice of red label bargains on offer.
Another money-saver has previously told us that a ticketer goes around adjusting prices from about 7.30am each day.
This is another great day to bag discounts on old stock and clearance items, according to the guide.
Just look out for red labels and use the app’s product scanner to make sure you’re getting the best deal.
Just like Mondays, Sundays aren’t a great day to visit B&M as there aren’t as many new reductions around.
But you could browse the store’s Special Buys, which are a range of cheap limited-edition products that change each week.

We revealed the best times each day to shop at B&M as well as at Aldi, Lidl and Poundland last week.
The discount chain has started selling glittery pink gin that tastes of marshmallows, but it does cost £18 a bottle.
The retailer has also brought back its sell-out inflatable hot tubs in time for summer.
