    I know this is no help but if in mainland europe anytime the lidls there can have brilliant offers. Good if you are camping or self catering on hols.

    Not so usually in France, their idea of an offer is 1c off, bigger discounts in the UK but often higher prices.
    Don't be put off by unfamiliar brands, Lidl and Aldi between them trade all around the world. (Have used Aldi in Oz)
  • Like everyone else I like most things in lidl, the only things I haven't liked are their diet lemonade and colas (really yuk) and their bread's not very special either.

    try their cloudy lemonade and landgut bread.
  • Chilled meats, salamis etc are amazing, as are fruit/veg, milk, huge tubs of Greek yoghurt, olive oil, toiletries etc. We have yet to be dissappointed with anything. Rarely step foot in Tesco or Sainsburys these days.

    Although I work for Tesco (needs must after 7 months out-of-work), my husband won't shop anywhere else than Lidl for all our basic groceries.
    We only use Tesco if he forgets something or if Lidl don't stock it :D

    I use lidl for the bulk of my shopping, their prices on most goods are really good and the quality is excellent. I have a fresh fruit salad everyday!!! and the majority of fruit I buy is from Lidl. I could not afford to have a fruit salad everyday if I bought the fruit from the other supermarkets with the exception of Aldi, but of the two Lidl has the best quality fruit.

    Hi there,

    Over the past month we've started to discover Lidl and don't think we'll look back as the fruit and veg is a very good quality and the offers superb, we can't get all of the week / month shop there but it is a lot cheaper.

    Can I ask about the voucher offer advertised, is the voucher also available in this weeks star/express or was it just available on Saturdays??

    Available every day until Friday, voucher valid until Sunday.

    Hi All

    Thank you everyone for your help. I went to Lidl on Saturday and was so grateful to have the £5 off coupon from the Express as I spent £52. Thanks for that Jane. Their chilled meats did look good but I had alresdy stocked up midweek so didn't buy any.

    I did get lots of offers though most of which I wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't for this thread ,so thanks to everyone.

    I bought:

    Neopolitan Sandwich Ice Cream
    O/B Magnum Lollies
    Pizza Branston Beans
    Korma Curry Sauce +
    Lots of Pasta Sauces
    Nescafe Coffee
    2 Red Mountain Coffee
    Muesli
    Passatta
    Potato Salad
    Instant Oats in sachets
    Plain Chocolate
    Cheese no Cathedral City left
    Bacon Bits
    2 Cod Provencale
    Minced Beef
    Quorn Mince
    Various dried pasta
    Freezer Bags
    Sandwich Bags
    Baby Wipes
    Gales Squeezy Honey
    Tins Tomatoes
    Huge Marmite
    Vegetables
    Lots of other biscuits, chocolate, tins of things and of course a Daily Express

    Thank you all very much for all your help.

  • Now, this is what good customer relations is all about

    Having signed up to receive Lidl e’mails, we occasionally get a free voucher to download.
    A coffee voucher arrived which was duly downloaded but when we tried to redeem it, the product was not there. So I sent a polite rebuke via e’mail to Lidl as they are normally very good.
    The quick apology from Lidl arrived in the ‘post’ together with a staggering £10 voucher.

    They continue to impress!:T
