Supermarket shelves are already stacked with Easter treats and it won’t be long before the chocolate price wars commence.

However, Sainsbury’s shoppers could start stocking up with bargains as early as next week.

The supermarket has revealed that all large eggs will be £2 from next week for Nectar card customers.

The offer starts on Wednesday, February 14 and runs until Tuesday, February 20, and is available online or in stores.

This works out to a saving of over £1 on the current price of some of the chocolate treats.

Sainsbury’s shoppers are already getting excited at the prospect of bagging an early Easter deal.

One person said: “I think a couple may fall into my shopping basket.”

Another added: “Thanks I will have a look next week.”

While a third commented: “Cracking deal.”

At the moment customers can buy a large Cadbury Mini Egg Easter egg for £3.25.

But next week the same egg will be £2 for Nectar card holders, giving a saving of £1.25.

The same offer will apply to Cadbury Twirl, Crunchie, Wispa and Creme Egg which are all priced at £3.25 on the website at the moment.

Britain’s retail apocalypse: why your favourite stores KEEP closing down

Nectar card holders can also collect points when shopping in store and online.

You receive one loyalty point for every £1 spent with Sainsbury’s.

You also get one point for every £1 spent on fuel bought at Sainsbury’s petrol stations and can pick up points at hundreds of partners as well, including Esso and eBay.

The Nectar Card also gives customers exclusive discounts on hundreds of products in the same way a Tesco Clubcard does.

You can register and download an e-Nectar Card by downloading the app on your smartphone.

All you do is swipe the card everytime you shop and points will be added to your account so you can get money off future purchases.

Each point is effectively worth 0.5p, meaning you need 500 points to get £2.50 off.

Remember it is always good to shop around to make sure you are getting the cheapest deal.

The closer it gets to Easter the more likely it is that other retailers will start competing to be the cheapest in a bid to get your cash.

You can use shopping comparison tools such as Google Shopping and to compare the cost of items across different retailers.

Also, remember that there is a chance you can get a different offer in-store to what is online so keep your eyes peeled.

Meanwhile, we can reveal where is the cheapest place to buy Easter eggs this week.

We checked the price of some of the most popular Easter eggs in all the major supermarkets including Tesco and Asda.

Asda is the cheapest place we could find selling a Dairy Milk Twirl Easter egg.

The chocolate treat comes with an easter egg inside and a chocolate and orange twirl too for just £4.50.

The supermarket also has an offer on where you can double up for £8 making a £1 saving if you buy two.

When it comes to mini eggs Tesco is the cheapest place to buy the Mini Easter Egg set which comes in at just £1.20 for Clubcard customers.

Sainsbury’s and Asda are the next cheapest at £1.25 and Morrisons is selling the mini egg treat for £1.50.

Also, Aldi is selling a Toblerone Easter egg dupe that’s nearly half the price of the original.
