Convenient Pricerise

Need a new radio and have been keeping an eye on the on-line price from a major retailer, and waiting to see what Santa might bring first.

Between 8.00am and 8.00pm yesterday the price suddenly shot up by £40.

What's the betting there'll be a massive reduction of around £40 just in time for the Boxing Day sale?

In contrast, at my local Lidl today, I got a few genuine bargains. They had several BIG cardboard boxes dotted around the store - every item in the boxes was priced at £1.

Luckily because I have long arms, I could reach down to near the bottom and have a good rummage.

...reminded me of some of my bird feeding stations...the birds with longer beaks get most of the 'freebies' :0]

You are correct a product can be sold at a higher price for 28 days within the last 6 Months but the product must not have been offered at a different price between that 28 day period and the day when the reduced price is first offered.

We keep a check on the cost of normal weekly supermarket purchases. Recently we have mmade a killing buying Clover, strong mature cheddar tea coffee cooking oil fish and many other items mostly at or near 50% discount. Some can be stored in a cool place others we put in the freezer. These hare true discounts having paid the regular price in the past. We also keep a check online for possible future purchases. I have been looking for a woolsports jacket my wife found a discount code online that allowed me to buy 2 for the price of one had been for somee months. These were purchased direct from the manufacturers site. Obviously other retailers are marking up at least 100%.

I was wrong.

The price has oust gone up again, making an increase of 100% since Christmas Eve.

I'm still cynical enough to expect to see it at "Half Price" before too long!

You could be right, a price increase like this looks like they are pricing it ready for the next sale.

Lidl have 'discretely' lowered the alcoholic strength of one of their beers (it's in a green/red can) from 4.0% to 3.8%.

This is not a repeat...Lidl have again 'discretely' lowered the alcoholic strength of one of their beers (it's in a green/red can) from 3.8% to 3.6%. from the initial 4.0%.
