Asda will sell the cut-price Prosecco until February 14, which means you have time to pick a bottle up for Valentine’s Day.

However, you can find cheaper bottles of plonk elsewhere by shopping around.

Lidl comes in cheapest at £4.95 for a 75cl bottle, while Aldi’s is also only £4.95, but usually priced at £5.99.

How to cut the cost of your grocery shop

MONEY.CO.UK has shared some top tips with us to help you keep your supermarket spend down to a minimum.

  • Write yourself a list – Only buy items that you need. If it isn’t on your list, don’t put it in the trolley
  • Create a budget – Work out a weekly budget for your food shopping
  • Never shop hungry – You are far more likely to buy  more food if your tummy is rumbling
  • Don’t buy pre-chopped veggies or fruit – The extra they’ll charge for chopping can be eye watering
  • Use social media – Follow your favourite retailers to find out about the latest deals
  • Be disloyal – You may want to go to different stores to find the best bargains
  • Check the small print –  It’s always worth checking the price per kg/lb/litre when comparing offers so you’re making a like for like decision as a bigger box won’t necessarily mean you get more
  • Use your loyalty cards – Don’t be afraid to sign up to them all. They all work slightly differently – work out what bonus suits you better and remember to trade in your points for additional rewards

Tesco comes in second cheapest at £4.99 a bottle. Morrisons, Sainsburys and Waitrose sit in the middle with prices and offers between £6 and £6.99 for a bottle.

Although Prosecco and Champagne are both sparkling wines, there is a difference between the two.

Champagne is produced in the Champagne region of northeast France, while Prosecco comes from the Veneto region of Italy.

Champagne is typically more expensive, with the cheapest 75cl bottle costing £9.97 from Asda.

Some supermarkets are also selling bubbly as part of their Valentine’s Day meal deals.

Tesco are including their Finest Prosecco, which is usually £10, in their £15 Valentine’s dine in offer.

The deal includes one starter, main, side, vegetable, dessert and drink.

Sainsbury’s and M&S also offering their fizz as part of the meal deals, which are priced at £20 each.
