In the shops now! #2: Tesco makes an offer you can refuse

8 January 2009

No sooner do we point out the miserable sale prices available to our US cousins, than you find equally ridiculous examples on this side of the Atlantic. Bitterwallet reader Alan points to Hot UK Deals, where forum member hippyharry has discovered a sensational non-bargain in Tesco:

Every little helps, see, and you can't get any littler than nothing whatsoever. I'll take four, please. The offer might not be on when I come back.

    TESCO think if they plaster things with a yellow label people (numpty buckets) will think it's a bargain, very clever from TESCO

    still a rubbish deal but i think the twist is you can get the other flavours if you get the 2 for 2.50 where as the 1.25 is only for ready salted

    Asda have the same on Tetley tea bags £3 or 2 for £6 - I think you get an "I am a dumbass" badge if you buy 2.

    elpardo is likely right, for all we know the other flavours are more expensive therefore it's still a saving. Not if you only buy ready salted but there is an offer to save money there.

    They do this in my local veg shop. Everything is marked as 2 for xxx, then if you buy one if them it turns out to be half the "offer price".

    You lot can take the mick, but do you realise it took a tesco worker four hours to work this out. He was so proud of his maths, he advertised it on the shelf edge.

    [...] coming up with the goods (arf) at the moment. Following a perplexingly straight forward offer on Walkers Crisps, Bitterwallet reader Mike has this unmissable offer for all fans of Cadbury Choc Break Hot Choc [...]
