Easter Egg Offers
When it comes to buying chocolate Easter eggs, there are plenty of opportunities to pick them up for cheaper than their everyday price. In recent years, Easter eggs have pretty much hit the shelves straight after Christmas and then hung around all the way up to a week or two after Easter has finished.
If you’re after a bargain, sometimes holding out until the week following Easter can lead to some great savings. While many Easter eggs hold their price for a day or two following the Easter weekend, holding out for a few more days can quickly see their prices slashed in half.
