    Was a bit gutted to get this email the other day. I don't believe there are any other alternatives out there, was a fairly niche app.

    just have to rely on hotuk ... but, I don't know how that survives.

    since mysupermarket didn't have a very good aldi/lidl catalogue, it was sometimes of limited use.

    also, the supermarket sites themselves, often show bulk purchase deals, not on myS.

    HUKD are raking it in from all the affiliate link traffic. It's now part of a global network of deal sites.

    Shame the app was great as you could just scan a barcode and it would do the rest!

    Damn and blast, that was a great site. Use to use it all the time to find the best price and deals on alcohol and meat.

    so what are the alternatives ?

    I contemplated 'google' search alternatives, since google shopping mainly shows the 'amazon' supermarket/paid advertisers

    inurl:(tesco.com) OR inurl:(sainsburys.co.uk) OR inurl:(boots.com) OR inurl:(asda.com) shreddies 750g
    ?

    ... the conversion of colon/left bracket was a smiley, can't rememeber hows to escape
