We're all fed up of paying too much for booze - including Bill Shorten.

The Labor leader has revealed his hack for getting more bang for his buck when stocking on alcohol, just in time for any election night parties on Saturday. 

Appearing on radio on Thursday morning. Mr Shorten was quizzed about whether he'd been to Dan Murphy's ahead of polls closing.

He then revealed how he plays the discount liquor chain off against rival First Choice.

'This is a little, if you like, a shopper's hack and potentially a very useful thing,' he told KIIS FM Melbourne.

Dan Murphy's currently has a Lowest Liquor Price Guarantee, with a team dedicated to comparing prices to those of competitors to offer customers the best deals.

'If a competitor's price does slip by us, let us know and we'll beat it on the spot,' the website reads.

First Choice Liquor also has a similar policy called the Price Beat policy where they can offer a better price in store to their competitors.

Both store's policies have conditions, such as the store needs to be within 10km of the competitor, the advertisement must be current and items have to be identical. 

The competitor must also have the item in stock, and the price must be available on the day. 

The two outlets' price-matching policy pays dividends, according to the opposition leader.

'See, I'm not just another pretty face am I?' Mr Shorten said.
