Asda stops any multi-buy promotions on stuff thats reduced.

 

I have spoken to many of the staff about it, and it hasnt changed.

 

Shoppers really need to be wary about this...

 

an example.

 

3 chickens are 10 pounds, but about 4.50 pounds each... meaning that each chicken is now £3.33. OK, in the reduced section the same chickens, now nearly out of date are "reduced" to £4. pick up 3 and you are paying £12... how can this be right?

 

in many instances its cheaper to pick up two fresh items than two stale ones!

And yes, folks do usually pick up a few, they see a reduced price and often get some for the freezer! Check it first!

 

come on asda... do the right thing, when you reduce an item, make it cheaper than the fresh ones!

Tesco dont do this.I regularly go in there and look in the reduced cabinets for buy one get one free.

Last week I got loads of stuff for a tenner.

Also dotted about the store are quick scan readers to check the prices-before you go to the checkout.

I hav:De it all well sussed

... how can this be right?

 

It's right because Asda choose to do this.

 

A bit stupid, but I'm sure it nets them a bit of extra profit from people who don't look carefully enough at what they're putting in to their basket / trolley.

 

I've been stung several times over the years after checking my receipt back home to find either a) a promotional offer hasn't been applied properly - usually for a stupidly small saving (a few pence) that is not worth the expense of going back to the store and claiming, or b) I've gone back to the store and realised my error in picking products that didn't apply to the offer.

 

They're not breaking any laws, so if you're not happy, vote with your feet!

well, it is actually misleading.

 

another example.

 

asda had a good multisave offer on some red wine.

the price per bottle was £7.

three for £10, a good offer.

 

in the reduced section some bottles appeared, with slightly dirty labels, reduced to £4. Sounds like a great offer... yeah, lets pick up six bottles.

so instead of £20, they are now £24, and imperfect.

 

there were no labels attached to the bottles advertising the multisave.

the bottles were nowhere near the wine dept.

 

can asda expect everyone who buys something reduced to tramp around the store to see if they are being ripped off?

 

I think its a bit unfair, and its designed to catch out the unwary. Sell off old stock for more than fresh... it's naughty.
