Auntie Anne's Too Good To Go Review

Hey readers,

I like to save money where I can and one thing I spotted recently was people talking about an app called Too Good To Go. So, I downloaded and brought my first magic bag the other day and in this post, I am going to review the app Too Good To Go and tell you all about it.

What is the Too Good To Go app?

It is an app where restaurants and food places can instead of chucking out food at the end of the day bag that food called a magic bag which is available on the app at a reduced price.

 Therefore this cuts down food waste as also gives another a bargain of an item at a reduced price, so both the buyer and the seller are getting out of it. 

On the app, you can select between a 10m - 30m radius of places to check if the bags are available in the area. The prices vary depending on the shop and what the content is. The places for example that participate in this scheme is Greggs, Morrisons, |Spar, Auntie Anne's, Costa, Sainsbury's and some local places too. 

You do need to be quick,  I got my auntie Anne's bag the day before. They do have a certain amount of bags so it will be a first come first serve basis. 

Every day there are new goodie bags to purchase so always good to check the app frequently.

To pay for the magic bag you can use your card details, google pay, and PayPal. You can pay straight away. Once you have made payment there is a window of 2 hours where you can cancel the payment if you change your mind.

When the payment is made you will get an email of confirmation.

On the app, you will have an order number saved under your orders. When you go to collect your goodie bag you can show a staff member as proof it is a goodie bag you have purchase.

If you regularly use the app you can save your favorite places by hitting the heart button on the box where the place is that you like. The next time you open up the app you can quickly get to view your favorite places and what they have available.

 Like I said earlier I placed an order the day before (4pm) and I needed to collect the order the day after between 2.00pm - 2.30pm. It will say on the app the time to pick up your magic bag as it is different each time. 

So, the cost of Auntie Anne's goodie bag was £3.59 and it does on the app what the equivalent amount of food you get for that in the original cost. So, my bag should come to normally about £10.00.  

As you can see I have a saving of £6.41 because I am buying food that is on a date but sadly it would end up in the bin because it is best before as the food is fine to eat but won't be at its best. 

Also, remember to make sure that you are on time. I just went to the serving desk said I wanted to pick up a too good to go magic bag showed the confirmation order and she gave me the bag. No problems waiting around and the food was formed when I collected so still fresh and on a date.

Of course, the thing about magic bags is you won't know what is in them until you get the bag because it will depend on the day and what food is left over.

In my bag, I got three big cinnamon pretzels from Auntie Annies and the original prize is £4.40 for 1 cinnamon pretzel and I got three which I think is a good saving.

They taste really good, fresh and I can't really complain. 

I will be definitely trying out different places to see what they are like but overall can't fault the app and think it is a really good idea to save money and food waste.

Cheers for reading X

  3. It's a great app, there isn't much available in my local town but we used it when we went to London pre-covid and it saved us a small fortune on food.
