    Tesco half-price gifts 4th Nov 19 at 12:08 PM
    Tesco has loads of half-price gift sets on offer. MSE Laura B got some photos on Sunday 3 Nov and there were plenty of health and beauty items on the shelves marked at 50% their normal price.

    Tesco has run this offer at around this same time in past years. It might be a good time to sort some stocking fillers or full-size Christmas presents.

    They seem to be available online as well as in store.

    it has to be said that most of these "bargains" are anything but, imho reducing something to half price that was originally over priced is no great bargain, the words "half price" "reduced" "sale" "50%off" have become meaningless in the English language.
    For the many NOT the few

    You mean they are half the twice the price they should have been

    I do often smile at some of the reductions marketing "professionals" come up with. In my local store there was an 18 pack of crisps reduced to clear at a higher price than the offer right next to them for 2 x 12 packs !

    Absolutely. And it's all this fake pricing by Tesco in particular that's driven people away to Aldi and Lidl, where they don't use this kind of deceitful marketing.

    You simply can't trust Tesco pricing because of the way it's manipulated to make something look as if it's a bargain - even when it's not.

    I went in to a Morrison's last week to check on their price of Kvarg and found the product on the shelf at 1 per pot, or a multibuy offer of 4 for 4!!
