THERE'S just two days to go until 2022 comes knocking, and shoppers are preparing to celebrate the countdown.

A few bottles of Prosecco is a classic way to toast the New Year – here's the cheapest places to stock up ahead of Friday night.

Even before Christmas, the supermarkets were battling it out to provide the cheapest boozy deals.

Now that there's less than 48 hours left of 2021, they're slashing prices again.

Back in October there were warnings that the price of Prosecco could spike in 2022, thanks to rising commodity prices in Italy.

So now could be a good time to stock up your drinks cabinet, even if you're planning a dry January after the big blow-out in a few day's time.

You should always shop around to see where you can find the cheapest price, and it's sometimes a good idea to check prices before big events like New Year's arrive, as stores can sometimes hike prices with demand.

We've done most of the hard work for you though, and found some corkers all under a tenner.

Here are some of the cheapest bottles you can buy right now from your local supermarket.

Asda, £4.99 – buy now

Of all the big name supermarkets, we found that Asda has the cheapest bubbles that you can buy in time for New Year.

Its Prosecco Spumante Extra Dry is only £4.99 to buy right now.

The plonk has been slashed down in price from £5.99 so not only is it the cheapest available, but Asda shoppers can save £1 off the full price too.

The discount supermarket actually has an extended offer of a third off any wines and fizz if you fancy a bit of variety for your New Year's bash too.

Morrisons, £5.50 – buy now

Morrisons comes in second cheapest with a £5.50 bottle of Coppiere Prosecco Frizzante.

It's also got a volume of 75cl but the bottle is 50p dearer than Asda.

The supermarket usually scores well with bargain hunters as it's been praised for cheap options in the past.

Back in May, Morrisons beat other rivals when it won the top spot for best own-brand wine with a £4 bottle – so it's no stranger to low prices.

Sainsbury's, £6 – buy now

Sainsbury's own fizz is the cheapest that the supermarket is offering.

For £6 you can buy Sainsbury's Prosecco Frizzante which is 75cl of bubbles.

The supermarket even describes the bottle as a "gentler style of fizz with a soft sparkle."

But it's not the only booze on offer to keep you and guests entertained over the countdown to midnight.

Sainsbury's also has a whole range of fine wines reduced to £10 each ahead of the end of the year.

Iceland, £6 – buy now

Iceland's Onbrina Prosecco Frizzante is only £6 as well.

The 75cl fizz bottle has been reviewed by 21 customers online who all agree it's got a great flavour and great value.

One said: "It’s light and reasonably priced, Perfect for any celebration I would recommend it to anyone."

While another said: "Delicious. Very good value."

Iceland is really pushing the boat out for shoppers with less than 48 hours to go until the New Year reigns in.

The supermarket has even slashed the price of same day delivery by 50% to entice shoppers to get their last minute goodies today and tomorrow.

Tesco, £6 – buy now

Tesco is selling a 75cl bottle of Plaza Centro Prosecco for just £6 too.

With the Tesco price though, there is a catch.

You'll need to have a Clubcard to bag the bottle for £6.

Without one it's £7 – the deal is only running until New Year's Day too, so you'll need to be quick to cash in if you want to save the extra £1.

It's free to get a Tesco Clubcard, you just need to sign up and you'll be able to start using the rewards scheme straight away on your phone.

So at least while you're waiting for the ball to drop, you don't need to worry about a card dropping through your letterbox as well.

Aldi, £7.49 – buy now

Surprisingly, Aldi's bubbles aren't the cheapest compared to competitors.

The same size 75cl is almost double the price of the cheapest Asda version we found of the same volume.

It's £7.49 to buy from the supermarket that prides itself on having the cheapest prices going – but shoppers have been content with the quality as it's received almost 300 five star reviews from happy customers online.

It wouldn't be the first time shoppers were unhappy about the price of Aldi's bubbles though.

Shoppers were outraged at the price of Aldi’s £40 three litre Prosecco – and it lead to them doing their own maths to work out how they could get the saem volume of booze for cheaper.
