Be Smart Consumer: Tesco, Giant, Carrefour Malaysia

All of us know that to be smart consumers, we need to make a price comparison first before any purchasing. However, it is quite troublesome and time-consume if we go to each hypermarket to collect promotion press releases. Therefore, in this post, I woud like to share a simple tips to save your precious time to be smarter consumer.

First of all, we can go to the official website of each hypermarkets e.g.  TESCO, GIANT, CARREFOUR. Their website addresses are stated below:

TESCO : http://www.tesco.com.my/
GIANT : http://www.giant.com.my/
CARREFOUR : http://www.carrefour.com.my/

Next, let's see what kind of precious information (e.g. Voucher, Promotion) we can found in each of them.

TESCO
1. Click on "Promotions" in Tesco website, you can find out the latest "Weekly Press Ads", "Weekly Mailers" and "Extra Weekly Mailer'
2. Recently, Tesco provides a RM10 printed voucher. More detials can be found in my previous post.
3. Latest announces etc.

GIANT
1. Again, click on "Promotions", where you can find out "Weekend Specials" and "Promotion Catalogue".
2. In addition, printed discount voucher also available in the website.
3. Latest announces etc.

CARREFOUR
1. Check out the latest Carrefour sales and promotion, as advertised in the papers.
2. Weekly Promotion Catalogue
3. Latest announces etc.

As you can see, to be a smart consumer, all you need to do is collecting enough information, make a comparison, decide where you should go and what you should buy, and plan your shopping schedule.

Lastly, please remember all vouchers or coupons must be printed out from Internet. That's all for today. More fascinating articles and sharing will be updated from time to time in Xaivier Blog. So, you are welcome to subscribe our feed, look at our sitemap or simply visit our Homepage.

Just go to price.savershub.com
To compare prices.

This website is accessible from desktop or mobile. Try out the shopping list function (registration required).

Hi Yen Choo,

Interesting website, but what I get from the website is:

"Prices are not 100% correct. Please help us to improve."

and

"Sorry, we cannot find any prices at the indicated location. "

In short, it is not very user-friendly.

However, maybe some guidance can help first users to get familar with the functions faster.

Thanks for your suggestion.

P/s: what is the shopping list function?
