The selections go live instantly so I was able to set this up, then go to the local Waitrose and it worked!

The 20% comes off the 'top' figure so for instance seriously strong extra mature cheese 350g is £4 but 2 for £6 so

£4.00
£4.00
minus £0.80
minus £0.80
minus offer £2.00

equals £4.40 for 2 x 350g cheese

(We then used four vouchers from their magazine at 50 p off and will be doing a TMF to hopefully get back £4 but that's not the point of this thread)

Please post what you think the best items to select are.

The chickens at something like £4.40 each, 3 for £10 are in the offer and my list but not tried that yet due to lack of space in the freezer. Should work out around £2.45 for a 1.2kg chicken

You could try essential Waitrose 2 British part boned chicken breasts 500g - £5.29 each but 3 for £10 and in the offer! I think that brings them to £2.27 per pack.

    Has anyone used this with the 3 for £10 meat offers? Not sure how the 20% would be applied.

    You've answered my question before I asked it. :)

    I wonder if buying the two packs of cheese would trigger the free newspaper. :D I suspect that £6 would be the trigger point as that offer is available to everybody. Just guessing, though.

    I'd be interested to know this too as it seems a bit vague as to how the 20% discount will be applied - it says it's as well as any other offers but doesn't say if you just get the 20% on the £10 or on the 3 individual products. Confusing!

    Can confirm on the 3 for 10.00 meat it takes 20 per cent off the full price first - so for example if you buy the part boned chicken breast the final price per pack will be just under 2.30 - so this is a cracking deal. Hth.

    I have a £6 off £40 spend voucher.
    Does anyone know if it is £40 to pay after discount applied?
    Thank you.

    I got 20% off one of my choices which was already reduced as nearly at its 'sell by' date

    Just looked at the items that can be selected for the 20% off.

    Mainly high-margin stuff which they can easily afford to knock 20% off, with a few exceptions.

    Nothing worth it for us, really. Aldi's not much more than half the price for much the same quality, so 20% isn't particularly appealing.

    Would have made a difference 4 or 5 years back before Aldi extended their range, but since then we've switched 90% of our Waitrose shopping to Aldi.

    Well, eggs, bacon and bread are among my ten, staples rather than high margin. :) My wife has an additional ten so up to 20 between us if we're prepared to shuffle cards.

    Nothing in almost 1,000 items?

    Without analysing your purchases, it's difficult to compare, though I suspect Aldi's offers are less comprehensive.

    In our case, it's dead easy. We do have a Waitrose within walking distance. The nearest Aldi is 4 miles away in a straight line, so allowing for transport and time costs, we're quids in at WR. :) OTOH, it's horses for courses. WR suits us better than Aldi.

    As you say, horses for courses. We have a Waitrose and an Aldi (and a Lidl and Tesco for that matter) within 5 miles, all quite close together.

    Waitrose provides the odd items that Aldi don't sell. Not that many these days, but Canadian Strong Flour, all butter puff pastry and Cumberland sausages spring to mind. It's a pleasant shopping environment, though it takes a lot longer to get in and out, even using Quick Check.

    Switching from Waitrose to Aldi genuinely saves at least 30% on average - probably more like 40%. You might be surprised at how good the food Aldi sell is - the cheeses and deli meats are particularly good, and about half the price of the Waitrose versions.
    The Stilton, for example, comes from the same creamery as the M&S Stilton, and the butter comes from the same creamery as Country Life but costs just 85p.

    The 20% will be handy on bacon (Waitrose bacon is better than Aldi's, though a lot dearer) but that looks to be about it.

    Many thanks for this OP. I also used the code on their homepage for £30 off my shop (min spend £100), and will get £5 cashback through Quidco as a new online customer, so I'm very happy with my savings. Free delivery too - I hate supermarket shopping in-store.
