It is worth checking ahead with your local store beforehand to make sure they are stocking the item to avoid a wasted trip.

How does the B&M scanner work?

B&M shoppers regularly share on social media how they have saved money using the store's free barcode scanner.

The scanner is completely free you just need to download the B&M app.

By scanning the barcode on items you can see if the price is actually cheaper than it is advertised on the shop shelf.
