  • B because you don't have to buy any more than you originally intended :-)

    Edit: And you have more change in your pocket!

    and did you really need it or are you just buying because it's on special offer.

    As one of a two-person household I get annoyed about "BOGOF"s on things like fresh fruit where I can't use double quantity to advantage (OK so you CAN freeze melon, but it's never as nice as fresh!), and have been known to not buy the one I'd planned because I don't want two and don't want to feel I've paid for two! 3-4-2 isn't quite so bad (I could buy 1 without feeling so ripped off), but it tends in the same direction.

  • well, i do agree that when you are single and dont own a lot of freezing space, well trying to not get ripped off is a pain, especially when you dont have a car to carry all the bogof you want to buy.

    I can do all the MSE stuff now: i have a car and 2 freezer draws and live with partner so we actually use the food.

  • I chose "B" aswell as the 'best bargain'.

    ** If you buy one product then 33% off is the 'best bargain'.
    ** If you buy more-than-one product then all 'bargains' are the same.

    Just my opinion though, as I have no need for three bottles of the same shampoo, or three car de-icers, or three boxes of 40 tea bags.
    ...
  • But I'd probably go down to the market and get the same quantity of 'stuff' for less money anyway :D:D
