In the shops now! Every little helps, just not very much

29 September 2009

Fancy a bottle of fizz for under £20? If only Tesco had some sort of unmissable deal breaker that'd ensure choosing your champers was a no-brainer. For Bitterwallet reader Steve, it nearly was - until he realised the saving on offer wasn't quite nearly enough to sway him:

    I saw these in our local tesco last week, ain't worth the hassle for a penny!

    yes iBone. Do you think I might have photoshopped out the shit focus as well while at it? tosser. Made me chuckle anyway. Was worried the local Catford 'yoot' might have wondered why I was papping a bottle of fizz though, so beat a hasty retreat after snapping this HD treat of a photo...

    My friend who works at Tescos informs me that Tesco's do this when the item won't scan through the tills, so they slap on a reduced label with a new bar code and knock off a minimal discount eg 1p

    Dacouch makes sense - up yours everyone

    Tesco had the big tins of choclates at £10 and buy one get one free, one was dented and reduced to £9 (and thus not BOGOF) so a terrible discount compared to the £5 each (if bought in twos)
