What is the ASDA Price Guarantee?
The ASDA Price Guarantee gives you the opportunity to check the cost of your comparable grocery shopping at ASDA and our main competitors, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Waitrose (our Competitors).
If an ASDA Price Guarantee check (a Check) shows that we're not 10% cheaper than our Competitors on your comparable grocery shopping we'll give you a voucher for the difference. Guaranteed!
For a shop to be eligible for the Asda Price Guarantee, you must have bought at least 8 different items which are included in the Asda Price Guarantee, of which at least 1 item must be comparable to an equivalent item sold by our Competitors. If the total cost of the comparable item(s) in your shop isn’t at least 10% cheaper than any of our Competitors, we'll give you the difference by way of a voucher which you can redeem at any of our stores, [or online at our home shopping website www.asda.com/grocery (our Grocery Website)]
If a Check shows that we aren’t 10% cheaper than more than one of our Competitors, you will receive a voucher for the greatest difference.
How do you qualify to use the ASDA Price Guarantee

How does ASDA Price Guarantee work?
- ASDA Price Guarantee is powered by independent price comparison site mySupermarket.co.uk.
- mySupermarket only compare like for like products (i.e. branded products that are identical or very similar own label equivalents). For very similar own label products mySupermarket ensure these products meet the same needs or are intended for the same purpose.
- The following products are not included in the Asda Price Guarantee:
Any products from the following categories:
All product comparisons made by mySupermarket.co.uk are believed to be correct. However, with so many products checked, on rare occasions there may be some inaccuracies.
- Home, Electrical, Furnishings, Garden, Entertainment, Hardware, Sports, Toys, George, Kiosk (including Tobacco, Newspapers and Magazines), Jewellery, Pharmacy, Optical, Fuel, Photo-processing, Dry Cleaning.
- Any products which are sold in our stores but not on our Grocery Website.
- Any products (or services) from any of our other websites.
- Any products which are sold in stand alone petrol filling stations (i.e. those which are not connected to a store).
- Any products which are not sold by us (for example because they are sold by our concession or white label website partners).
- Any products which we cannot fairly compare because of factors outside of our control (for example because a competitor has changed the way products are displayed on its website and mySupermarket has to change its technology to capture pricing information about such products).
- Any item carrying a "Whoops" label in ASDA (displayed as “reduced” on your till receipt) will be excluded from the ASDA Price Guarantee as “Whoops” discounts are store specific and do not apply throughout all of our stores or on our Grocery Website.
- We operate a fair use policy, so if you've bought the same item multiple times, we'll only count a maximum of 10 instances of each item in any one Check. Similarly where items are sold by weight, we’ll only count up to 10kg of the item in any one Check.
- Checks for online orders from our Grocery Website, are based on what you ordered, not what we delivered. (sometimes we may need to substitute items that are unavailable).
- Where we can fairly include a promotion in the Asda Price Guarantee, we will. However, multi-buy offers where the individual prices of any of the products included in the offer are different, offers such as Buy 'X' Get 30p off 'Y' and any other types of offers which make it difficult for us to make a fair comparison, are excluded.
- We believe that our Competitors prices are correct. However, we check so many prices that on rare occasions there may be some inaccuracies.
- Checks are based on prices correct as of date of delivery (online shoppers) or date of purchase (in store customers).
- The ASDA Price Guarantee system is updated daily (with Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsbury's prices) and twice weekly (for Morrisons’ prices).
- We obtain price data for the ASDA Price Guarantee as follows:
- mySupermarket independently collect prices (except Morrisons) from daily web scans of the Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose and ASDA grocery home shopping sites.
- Morrisons prices are collected in-store (by an independent agency) twice a week (Monday and Wednesday), and therefore unlike Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose,
are only updated twice per week (Wednesday and Friday respectively).This means that Morrisons prices checked may be up to 7 days old. Morrisons prices are collected
in a representative sample of stores each week around Great Britain. On Wednesday 25th December 2013, Christmas Day, there will not be a price collection at Morrisons
due to the bank holiday. This price collection will be carried out on Friday 27th December and prices will be updated on ASDA Price Guarantee on Sunday 29th December.
On Wednesday 1st January, New Year’s Day, there will not be a price collection at Morrisons due to the bank holiday. This price collection will be carried out on
Thursday 2nd January and updated on ASDA Price Guarantee on Sunday 5th January.
- Prices are taken from the shelf price label for each product in Morrisons; if any product is sold out, then we'll still use the shelf price label if visible. If however a product has a price marked on it, then the lowest price will be used for the comparison.
- mySupermarket have audited our process for collecting Morrisons’ data , and will only include comparisons that they are confident are accurate.
- Where prices and promotions are found to be different across stores or across website postcodes sampled (in the case of ASDA, Tesco, Sainsbury's,Waitrose and Morrisons), the most commonly occurring price is used.
- When an item goes out of stock on our Grocery Website or a competitor’s, the Asda Price Guarantee will display the last price for up to 7 days, after which the product will not be compared (“N/A”).
- mySupermarket regularly review and update the lines included in the ASDA Price Guarantee based on what is ranged and in stock at each supermarket.
- The difference in price shown on your Check between the comparable items in your shopping at ASDA and the other relevant supermarkets will be based on the total price for all comparable products in the basket/trolley.

Comparison Calculation Examples
- Your comparable grocery shop is £55 at ASDA, £50 at Tesco, £57 at Morrisons, £64 at Sainsbury's and £71 at Waitrose. Tesco are cheapest.
- Your comparable grocery shopping is £5 cheaper at Tesco.
- 10% cheaper than Tesco's £50 comparable grocery shop is £45. So in total you'll receive a voucher for £10.00 to ensure your comparable grocery shop is 10% cheaper at ASDA.
- Your comparable grocery shop is £100 at ASDA, £105 at Tesco, £130 at Morrisons, £125 at Sainsbury's and £135 at Waitrose. ASDA are cheapest, however not 10% cheaper.
- 10% cheaper than Tesco's £105 comparable grocery shop is £94.50. So you'll receive a voucher for £5.50 to ensure your comparable grocery shop is 10% cheaper at ASDA.
