SUPERMARKET shoppers can sweep up a new bargain hot tub from Morrisons, that’s cheaper than one budget rival Aldi is selling.
Morrisons’ new Lay-Z-Spa is on sale for £300, making it almost £100 less than Aldi’s own £399.99 Intex tub.
The Morrisons bargain has arrived just in time for spring too, as Brits begin to venture into their gardens more and enjoy their outdoor space.
The hot tub can easily seat up to four people and has 120 jets to give you a relaxing experience.
Hot tubs are on shelves in select Morrisons stores now – you can use the supermarket’s locator tool to find your closest.
It might be worth calling ahead to check stock with your local store though as stock is subject to availability and could sell out very fast.
Morrisons has even warned that when stock is gone, it’s gone.
Sadly you can’t order the hot tub online from the supermarket, so it’s only available in stores.
But before you race to the shops, you should have a look around for any cheaper deals.
Use cost comparison tools like Google Shopping to help you find the best price.
When we looked, NetWorldSports was selling a similar four person hot tub £30 cheaper than Morrisons.
The CosySpa tub was only £260 – but you have to factor in a delivery cost of £23 to get it to your front door.
Meanwhile, the likes of B&Q and Argos are more expensive.
If you are splashing out on a new tub for your garden, keep in mind that extra costs will continue every time you use it as well.
You’ll have to hook it up to your electricity supply to get the jets going and keep the water heated – but this might quickly eat into your funds beyond the initial purchase.
With energy bills set to rocket almost another £700 in just a few weeks, you need to think about how much its going to cost to use every time, and how much that’s going to add when wallets are already stretched.
Just filling your hot tub with water is an essential step – but it’s not free and can cost up to £5.25 to fill up each time according to Energy Helpline.
From April 1, it will cost between £2.45 and £3.50 a day to heat your jacuzzi too – so if you used it every day, it could cost £105 a month or £315 over three months of summer.
