This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This may be moved to the misc hinterlands, but it is still a good deal and worth a share regardless. From tomorrow Morrisons will be selling boxes of unsold food (which will be worth at least £10) for just £3.09 with each box containing various fruit, deli, bakery and vegetable products. This offer will last throughout the christmas period and unfortunately you will have no choice of what is within your box (i.e some boxes may not have some products from the various areas listed above) . To purchase, you must download the Too Good To Go app and then purchase via the app. The boxes will be available in all 494 stores.

One customer who purchased within the trial period stated their box contained: carrots, apples, bananas, a melon, blueberries, a cauliflower, turnip, coffee, muffins, strawberries, cakes and some Monster Munch.

So instead of putting 90% off stickers on and it going to people who actually want it, they are selling mystery boxes for more money and no choice so lots of items will go in bin.
How on earth can you claim it's worth at least £10? Would you pay £10 for it? No, thought not. It may well have been worth that when it was on the shelves but this if food that was about to be thrown away.
I thought this stuff went to the home less food banks and kitchens

This is such a great idea it deserves some heat
This is fantastic. The amount of food that we - as a nation - waste is criminal.
Unfortunately good idea ruined by app and unreliable sellers. Personal experience.

Haha. I can't really add any opinion about the paper here else the comment will be removed Indeed it is, hopefully it has a lot of uptake

I did this, once, I got a big box of 2 days out of date bread. 1 pack of 2 days old granola biscuits too.
Unsold fruit. Surely when you buy its then bought?
If its not fit so sell they can't then sell it as 'would have be thrown away. As its not fit

I was just stating this figure so users had a rough idea of the original value of the box, so it is easier to determine the value of the box when purchasing this deal (i.e 69% off "original" cost)

Indeed if its out of date i would expect shelf value of £15
And if Morrisons want to 'help fight food waste' donate or give away the food you are otherwise putting in a skip!
I’ve used this for Wenzels bakery and got some good bits - including a lovely tiger loaf
Ridiculously poor deal - this will all be items that would have been reduced anyway (and should be going to foodbanks!!) - and "To Good to go" is a great idea, but like trying to find a needle in a haystack to find a "real" deal - a lot of absolute rubbish being advertised as "normally £7.99" etc, but when you turn up its obvious it was never near that price and I've had it confirmed by retailers - they say TGTG set the prices on the app!!

In theory a good idea/deal, in practice not so sure, pay almost a third of the price for a surprise box of random, out of date fresh items. I'm sure most of the box will end up being thrown away by a lot of people anyway, as it's either poor quality, something they don't like, don't need this week or can't use quicker enough .
Morrison's far better off continuing to reduce in store as they do now, people can buy exactly what they want and need then thus reducing food waste . If they reduced quicker and by larger amounts anyway people would buy it .
I go in after 7:00 when they are busy marking down items "for quick sale" the second time around. 5 and 10 pence for stuff that was over a pound, and you aren't buying blind.

Sounds good.... reality check.....dismal reviews from users and businesses not very happy either.
Heat for the Monster Munch rumour.
Is this to replace the yellow stickering where you could physically pick and check the short dated goods you wanted at the reduced price rather than getting a blind option. If so, that's not a great solution to something that was never a problem - the yellow sticker stuff typically flies off the shelf.
Knowing the Paignton store, even this stuff will be out of stock.

You haven't seen the Morrisons near me. Went in about 3pm on a Sunday and the manager was yellow stickering, it was like a scene out of a zombie movie. Poor guy had to yell at the customers to back off.

I'd rather do the mystery box than face the hordes.

Totally agree, tried it a couple of times, and both times felt I'd been ripped off by what I got.
In my experience Morrisons' "reduced" or short-dated produce is always literally rotten. They keep stuff on the shelves at full-price to within an inch of its life and then throw it on the reduced aisle at a paltry 10p reduction in the vain hope that someone who doesn't know any better will buy it.

The reduced meat is always grey and pallid and frankly looks like it would poison you (and it probably would). The reduced veg is always bruised, battered, and/or wilted. The reduced bakery items are usually reduced from (e.g.) £1 to £0.80 or something pitiful making the whole concept of reduction pointless.
I have the Good To Go app on my phone, in short I find it absolutely useless, it's a good idea but it needs a lot of work with quicker and better notifications for it to be of any practical use. For me I'm better off going into my local store at the right time of day and grabbing the marked down goods that I specifically need.

Definitely not where I live - quarter of million population and 3 stores participating (pretzel shop, one chippy and one chain carvery). Closest Morrisons that do this is 30km away according to the app.

Yep me too. Felt like a real idiot going to collect food from an ibis hotel and facing a load of blank expressions from the staff. Got a refund and deleted the app.

This is the exact reason why I've not bought anything via this app despite loving the idea of it. Scared to death of this happening 🙈
I have the app and am trying to get one of these mystery Morrisons boxes... but I check the app every day and they seem to be permanently sold out.. I am watching about 5 nearby branches, same every one.. what am I missing!? Does this deal go live on the TGTG app for about 2mins at midnight or something??
We got our first one today and was worth over £10 and ours wasn't reduced to clear items but damaged packing 👌

They go live at 6pm for next day collecton.
Just placed first order at Morrisons for tomorrow so fingers crossed!

Placed an order for tomorrow too, will report back on what it's like.

As someone who regularly shops the reduced section, it would be good to not have to fight the crowds (I always feel bad for the poor staff in these places) or try and guess when things are being reduced. So frustrating getting held up in work and getting there to find all that's left is beansprouts. And if you're a regular millennial hunter-gatherer then you'll be used to making do with what you can get, but at least this way you should really get some variety.
A couple of years ago our Tesco did fruit and veg boxes on a pallet at the front of the store. They started at £3 then £2, then £1 then 50p so I'm guessing they weren't popular! They had cucumber, lettuce, vine toms, onions, a squash, some tangerines, apples and a couple of bananas. All were perfect. It always makes me chuckle looking at sell by dates on fruit and veg. Nearly everything ( except beansprouts! Lol) lasts far longer than the date given and the oidd soft bit can be cut out. I never mess with meat though, if it is discoloured its not going home with me!! I wouldn't buy the boxes unless I could see in first - which is obviously not fair and never going to happen.

As for the reduced section, well... In the local Tesco, a crowd of people (10-15+) hang around the reduced aisle. The staff tend not to reduce on the floor but do it in the back and then deliver the goods to the reduced section. At that point the waiting crowd dive onto the food like locusts - grabbing everything and throwing it into their trolley. They grab the stuff they fancy first, then everything else they can get their hands on. Once the shelf is empty, they all get together and (I kid you not) and share out the food between them. So its like " I have ten of these, who wants one? I hate fish so who wants this salmon? I am on a diet do you want these cream cakes? " or " has anyone got anything gluten free? Swap you this curry for a trifle? Anyone got pizza's, I promised the kids for tea? " When they have picked over the spoils, anything unwanted goes back on the shelf. I know all this because I was stood looking at sausages in the same aisle and one of the "reduction gang" came over and told me they would be bringing a load of the same item out but with a reduced price. We got chatting and suddenly the locusts hit the shelves and a min or two later I was handed two packets of sausages at about 10p each! I have never seen anything like it, and I really don't envy the staff at all!!! So basically, unless you are prepared to fight with elbows and heels, at my local you only get dross like grey mince and yoghurts with holes. Either that or make friends with the reduction gang lol!
Should do what say Asda does, idk how many supermarkets do this but I've seen a lot of cheap stuff sell for dirt cheap if you get lucky but problem is a lot of times they try and be cheeky asking for nearly the full price for a product what goes out of date the next day or same day, idk if it's a staff thing, I guess Aldi is pretty good since they have a lot more reductions but it's only 50% even if it's same day, that's not too bad since it's still cheap but point is if these Supermarkets want to actually get rid of the stuff they shouldn't be charging £3.10 for a random box of rotten fruit and veg and bread whats going bad, they should basically giving this stuff away but than you've got a problem with the whole people won't buy stuff full price
Maybe limit it to one per customer so someone can't clear the Shelfs?

Food waste is bad yes but theyre putting profits first like how Designer brands burn their clothes instead of giving it to people who need it because they want to "protect their brand"
Supermarkets will prefer to throw stuff away than basically give it away, they seem to still and try to make profit or at least there buy for price back

It's with basically everyone, tons of companies will throw perfectly good stuff away and they'll prefer to do that than actual give it
