The Bonus on Skipholt was the closest to my accommodation. It has a great choice of products, even vegan products, at low prices which is very handy to cook your own meals, and save money.
I even became addicted to the vegan Polo biscuits :) !

My husband and I were staying in Reykjavik for 5 nights and needed some basic cooking supplies for our airbnb. We stopped at a number of Bonus stores but this one was right around the corner from us. Anyone heading to Iceland knows the food can be a little expensive. At Bonus you're able to get reasonably priced food. We bought breakfast supplies for the week and we ended up coming back every day to buy premade sandwiches to eat while we were out exploring Iceland. The premade sandwiches end up being about $4-5. Very reasonable for a quick lunch. Everyone at the Bonus stores spoke English, but you can get by without any assistance anyways.

We went to bonus soon as we arrived to buy milk and juice and a couple of snacks. The prices are much cheaper than any of the other shops and they have a really good selection of chocolate like omnom and skyr yogurt really good prices. Well worth a visit for any shopping needed. Saved us from using the expensive minibar in the hotel.

We noticed a Bonus supermarket as we walked up Laugavegur and went in to look at the prices. There is a good range of fresh products and tourist nick nacks at prices similar to those in the UK.
Bonus is probably closest to Lidl at home.

I went to the Bonus in downtown Reykjavik near skulagata. The cashier was super rude to me EVERY TIME I WENT. She was an older lady with dark hair and glasses. She always threw the receipt at me. The first time she did it I really tried my best to not think she was being racist. So I stayed around to see how she handled other customers. She handed the receipt to everyone else. 🤷🏾‍♀️.

The second time I went, she did the same thing. I just looked at the receipt she threw across the counter, then looked at her, and walked off.

3 stars only because it's affordable.
You should treat your non white tourists with respect. I'm still going back to Iceland. Just not to that old hag.

Bonus is advertised as a discount shop, but it’s not more than just marketing. In Kronan prices are the same but displays are nicer and cleaner. In Bonus I don’t feel comfortable at all . The staff don’t care about customers as if customers came to get something for free. And there is always something spilled on the floor while staff members can’t decide whose turn it is to clean

This is the place to go to buy all your essentials while in iceland. Spotted them all over Reykjavik. It has the cheapest prices around for drinks and snacks. Cheapest place to buy applesin, Icelands most popular soft drink! Delicious!

We were advised to go to Bonus by our shuttle bus diver, in preference to the 10-11 that's closer to the centre of town, as it's much cheaper. A straw poll of a few prices showed that this was right, Pepsi Max was easily half the price in Bonus.
What I wish we'd found out was how good the sandwiches in the chiller cabinet were. We didn't find this out until the last day, when we bought some to eat at the airport on the way home. The deli beef baguette had all manner of pickles and salad and the spicy chicken was great and had a really good, crispy seeded baguette. They're very well priced as well at just over £3. Eating out or at the hotel every meal becomes fiercely expensive in Reykjavik - the continental breakfast at our hotel was £20, so we didn't go near that. We limited ourselves to eating out once a day and having snacks we'd brought fom home for the rest of the day, but flapjacks got a bit tiresome after a while and a few of these sandwiches would have made for a better meal.
The supermarket itself is OK; somewhere between an Aldi and a Tesco, but for cost saving and value, it's well worth a visit

As soon as we settled in Reykjavik I went to Bonus to pick up some cheese, crackers, drinks and assorted Icelandic candies or sweets. I had a great time looking at the various products and also trying to decipher exactly what I was buying when purchasing local items. the prices were great. I advise anyone wanting some sodas or snacks to come to Bonus. Also I noticed that there were a few souvenir items in the store much cheaper than in souvenir shops. For example the lava salt was about 60% cheaper at Bonus than at the shop just a few doors down. Powerade at Bonus was $2 USand from the cafe in the Blue Lagoon it was $8US. Instead of paying the really high prices ($8-12US) in restaurants to try Skyr I bought a few flavors at Bonus to try for about $2.80US each. We tried some local cheese and crackers and apples which were all reasonably priced too. I brought home several different kinds of licorice and other candies for souvenirs that were quite inexpensive too. I highly recommend a visit to a Bonus even if you have a short stay like we did of only 3 days.

We shopped here (the smaller bonus on Laugavegur Street) on our trip to Iceland about 4 different times. Similar to an Aldi store. It is so much cheaper to get your food here and prepare it in the hotel room vs going out to eat. Fresh produce and meats. You have to pay 30 cents for a bag but they are biodegradable. You also have to bag your own groceries. They have a huge walk-in freezer/fridge section and a nice variety of very good chocolates.
