    Tesco Biggest Offer Ever

    Tesco Biggest Offer Ever 20th Feb 11 at 5:12 PM
    This is the discussion thread for the following MSE News Story:

    "The supermarket giant is promising to pay shoppers double the difference on products that are cheaper at Asda ..."



    Back to original post.

    Just heard that a week on Monday, 28th February, the biggest ever offer that Tesco have had will be starting.

    All managers have been told they have to work after the stores have closed next Sunday but they have not been told yet what the offers are just that they are huge.

    Anyone got anymore details.

    tescos must be the the most manipulative supermarket ever . " Half price " , but the base price increased to something ridiculous just prior to the product going half price .

    You could apply that to all retailers. Argos this week had a hoover reduced from 200 to 50. However the small print states that it was previously reduced to 60. Not manipulative, just sharp practice.

    Sorry but isn't every sale/discount event the "biggest ever" whatever the brand?

    ....Debenhams, Sports Direct, Asda, Ikea......etc etc etc

    I wonder if that means this week will be rather expensive to shop at Tesco, as they may be hiking a lot of prices in order to drop them again for their amazing offers. What a palaver I was just about to book a delivery for Friday, now I'm not sure...

    Are they allowed to do this? I thought by law sale items had to sold at their original price for at least 28 days or something, or does this not apply to offers/promotions?

    It's simple - when you see a big price hike -do not buy.
    Tesclos would rip your heart out if there was money in it for them.
    I always check the price of anything I buy and people who can't see that tesclos is a rip need to go to that famous spectacle shop.

    With a bit of luck there'll be an actual offer somewhere in there! *is probably far too optimistic for her own good*

    I always thought that, but then read somewhere that they can display a reduced price for as long in time as they offered the high price. So a week high followed by a week low would be OK. Mind you, there must be more to it than that otherwise it would be much more prevalent than it is now.

    How much money do you think Tesco might lose if we all now waited until next week to buy anything from them waiting for these 'offers' to happen? I definitely won't be shopping there until next week but that's more to do with being skint buying all the 3 for 2 pet food offers! Payday a week today!

    I think the clue to the offer is in socks-uk response. "Payday a week today" . The supermarkets are getting clever at targetting specials and newspaper coupons when customers have more disposable income available ie around payday. I think most people are paid around the 28th or at the end of the month which obviously is the same day this month.

    The charity I work for are doing a massive 'launch' in connection with Tesco's - but that's not until next Tuesday.
