    I wish somebody would do a comparison between shopping in bulk from Costco, and shopping in supermarkets.

    Just bought 12 x 75ml Sensodyne toothpaste, at coupon price, for £20.40, inc VAT.

    Full RRP appears to be £3.50 x 12 = £42.

    As for quoting coupon price, why would you buy toothpaste when it's not coupon price?

    I think bananas and milk are cheaper outside Costco, if you shop around, because they are loss leaders.

    Oh please, 1%?

    Inflation was higher (just for example) three years ago - 2013.
    Over 2% inflation was then; did we see such stories from MSE at that time?
    Fuel then was often over £1-40 per litre too.

    A non-story playing to those with little else to do than worry about the effects of a referendum, the result of which has yet to be enacted.
    MSE should know better.
