This is a great deal.
Info for ebay re-sellers:
Current ebay price £57
After all fees, your profit will be about £14, after income tax and NIN that is £9.8 left for you.
That is, if you manage to post the massive box by Hermes.
Good luck ;-)


Profit will be around £20 after fees and postage.

They do this in my local one, not cos the products are being discontinued by the manufacturer, but it seems they do it to make space for new lines on a regular basis!

It's standard final clearance price for Sainsburys (their clearance prices usually take effect on a Wednesday so most stores will probably have been cleared out by now)

It depends on what kind of store it is by the way. They might clear something out from one type of store but not another

Seriously, this probably tops the pointless goose chase Tesco deals. OP posts a deal, no store, no proof and bingo! At time of writing 357 degrees of heat.
Don't know who is worse, the OP for such a useless post, or the idiots for the useless heat.
Made my mind up.....it's both.
omg, someone with common sense. The lack of it on here, amazes me.
Truth be told some people are genuine, others are not. Why people post store specific deals is beyond me.
I stand by my point, that this does not help 99.999999% of the population.
I thought this site was to help the wider audience of the uk, not a specific place! But you can only blame the idiots for posting such things
I don't believe it's a problem to post a local deal. A little bit of detail in a post can explain the facts.
I'm sure that someone would appreciate you helping them out in your locality, whilst the rest of the nation can always check if they can be lucky too.
I understand what your saying. But to be honest, a local deal, is just a limited availability. Which means only a few people might only get the hands on it. How comes you dont list the reduce bread, and dint tin discounts then?
The tins and bread discounts, as you describe them, are an everyday event in any major supermarket, so I don't see why anybody would list those.
However, if I chanced upon an item with a serious discount in my local stores, I would let the locality know and make the wider audience aware that there is the possibility of said bargain.
I would therefore explain where I found the product and explain that I don't know if this is a nationwide deal.
If only a few people gained from it, so be it, the voting on here is irrelevant as proven by this very deal. Few have confirmed they've found it at the OP'S price , yet it's currently 637° and counting.
I took advantage of an Amazon deal that was expired a couple of weeks ago, I still managed to order and take delivery. Go figure.
Well like I and others have said before. It's another phantom deal to the majority of us. It just feels a waste of time to me, if this deal is not available to everyone.

Pot luck really, depending on your local store.

Just be sure to select "do not substitute if not available" option, and don't expect to be called / emailed if the product isn't in stock - they just won't turn up!

Deal on or ended?
cb-uk
I waited in for 2 hours yesterday - no delivery. Phoned customer services, who couldn't get hold of the store!

They finally called me today to let me know they had cancelled the order. Fortunately, I had ticked the "no substitute" box - otherwise I would have been given the 1TB drive.

Apparently, stocks of this item are extremely limited UK-wide - so most people will probably have their orders cancelled, and you can't back-order the item either. Bunch of gerbils!

I ordered one of these yesterday for delivery today. Unfortunately I just had a call from Sainsburys saying they don't have any in stock and could they substitute something similar. The closest he had was £40 more. Really nice bloke but terrible setup with Sainsburys online. Stock isn't checked at a store before orders are taken he said. Oh and they don't send cancellation emails either. Very disappointing.

I posted a Tesco £20 Blu-Ray player deal on here some time ago, and was accused of all sorts of things. Being a Tesco employee was one of them, but over the course of 24 hours it was proven to be pretty much nationwide, and even the most vocal person dishing out the accusations managed to snag one himself in the end. People are generally treated quite poorly on here, it's a surprise that people ever come back!

Can't fault it at this price. To those who may just see an empty shelf can't hurt trying to see if they have any in stock.

Unfortunately only RAM 2Gb of RAM hinders this computer. The OS alone uses this with nothing left over for apps. I appreciate this can be upgraded, but then the price of this 'bargain' goes up. So, if you want a slow pc with a poor grade monitor then this is the perfect deal.
Upgrade your OS, not your RAM -
Junk Windoze and install any Linux flavour of your choice, try Antix or Mint, or even Puppy frugal with this lowish spec.
Then watch the comp fly!
Total "upgrading" cost = Zero/Zilch/Nada!
That's what I'd have done if I could have found this deal locally (he said enviously)

It has no taste. If you haven't got the culinary nonce to put together a decent sauce then stay clear.

Of course it has a taste you ignorant fool. It also has a texture which affects whether people like it or not - though if you don't have the culinary nuance to appreciate that I guess it's best you stick to pouring sauce on "flavourless" protein.

CSPI is an American charity (or non-profit I think they call them over there.) They have various crusades against alcohol and so on. According to a Fox News investigation CSPI have a murky history of collaboration with Quorn's largest US competitor lol

Quorn is made from a less appetizing fungus (or mold) called Fusarium venenatum.

CSPI urges consumers to avoid Quorn and urges natural-foods retailers like Whole Foods not to sell this product that is dangerous to sensitive individuals.


Who is CSPI? Are they more reliable than the NHS or FSA?

All foods can be dangerous to sensitive individuals. I bet more people are dangerously sensitive to peanuts than they are Quorn so are this CSPI urging retailers not to sell peanuts too?

Bananas are high in sugars and glycemic index, and only 1% protein. Nuts are high in fats and usually have salt added. Not sure I'd ever eat lentils or chickpeas without sauce or flavouring. There will be variation in healthiness vs flavour, but the fact is our taste buds are tuned to find sugar/salt/fat tastier. Theory being that during the ice age the high energy of those components was essential to survival.
If you want to quantify Quorn in the context of a diet, you need to be more specific than "processed". I literally cannot discern any information from that. It's undergone a "process", but which? And what is the effect of that process?
Quorn is quorn. It doesn't say it's an exact meat replacement. It's made to be a convenient dropin for recipes and how it's cooked, but its its own flavour. I doubt anything healthy will taste just like meat, because they lack the fat component.
I think we must be coming from different wavelengths here.
When I mention nuts, I'm talking about the natural product not a packet of salted peanuts or the like...the nuts I normally consume do not have any added salt but I have eaten salt or sugar coated nuts.
I believe that you need to be more honest about your supposed understanding of "processed" with regards to Quorn. ;)
My point of view in general is that natural foods are more likely to be a better source of food for your wellbeing. This even includes the methods of raising animals and how they are fed etc.
I tried Quorn with a very open mind and as I said before, I've had soy/tofu based meals in the past which I enjoyed but Quorn was utterly disappointing. To put that into perspective, it came in plastic and carboard packaging and lets be honest, most food products that come in this manner are usually fairly low grade.
I personally find nuts without the sunflower oil and salt added to be quite tasteless personally, such as peanuts.

Regarding "processed" I'm being entirely honest. There is no definition of it. It is the past tense of a word that describes a series of chemical or mechanical operations. Cutting something up with a knife could be classed as "processed", but does not affect the nutritional value of it. You need to be specific. Which process, and why is that process bad. Otherwise it's meaningless.

There is a very general correlation between packaged/"processed" foods being less healthy, but that does not mean ALL food packaged/"processed" is bad. Simply more likely. Which is poor information. American food is more likely to be bad for me, but I can't then say all American food is bad for you. It's such a broad generalisation that it's next to completely useless. If someone is completely ignorant of nutrition, then it's a step up, but people who have the slightest bit of knowledge about nutrition will not benefit from this classification. Might as well say "It's bad because stuffs been done to it".
Just like being "unprocessed" doesn't automatically mean it's good for you. There's plenty of natural plants that are toxic or addictive drugs.

A reduction in flavour is usually the price paid for something healthy ;). The nicest tasting things are invariably the most unhealthy. Sugar, salt, or fat. People don't choose Quorn because they want the tastiest thing they can get. They get it for health/ethical reasons. Everyone has a balance between eating for pleasure or purpose. I choose to see food as a fuel foremost. If I really want a treat, I can use the calories/unhealthiness saved with these to use on something like a dessert.
I disagree totally that "the nicest tasting things are invariably unhealthy" there's so many natural products out there that taste wonderful without the need to add anything like salt, sugar or be loaded with fat.
I'd certainly consider a banana to be healthy and generally quite a tasty option for protein in natural form, I'd also recommend nuts, lentils, chick peas etc too.
I don't view a highly processed product like Quorn to be "healthy" not that I'm saying it's "unhealthy" either, I just don't consider it as a healthy option, based on the way it's "created".
It's simply a very highy processed food at the end of the day.
If you are just eating Quorn as a means of "fuel" I can identify with that very easily. The problem I had with Quorn was that it did not live up to the claim that it was almost like meat and was a great meat substitute. I'd say that Quorn could be fairly compared to some very poor quality processed meat products that are so far removed from being made of real meat that the resulting meal was similar...
I've enjoyed soy/tofu based dishes that did mimic meat dishes but that was in China many years ago.
From what I understand Soy based food isn't considered a healthy option these days either but that's not stopped me from eating them on occasion.

Quorn is quorn. It doesn't say it's an exact meat replacement. It's made to be a convenient dropin for recipes and how it's cooked, but its its own flavour. I doubt anything healthy will taste just like meat, because they lack the fat component.

A reduction in flavour is usually the price paid for something healthy ;). The nicest tasting things are invariably the most unhealthy. Sugar, salt, or fat. People don't choose Quorn because they want the tastiest thing they can get. They get it for health/ethical reasons. Everyone has a balance between eating for pleasure or purpose. I choose to see food as a fuel foremost. If I really want a treat, I can use the calories/unhealthiness saved with these to use on something like a dessert.

I disagree totally that "the nicest tasting things are invariably unhealthy" there's so many natural products out there that taste wonderful without the need to add anything like salt, sugar or be loaded with fat.

I'd certainly consider a banana to be healthy and generally quite a tasty option for protein in natural form, I'd also recommend nuts, lentils, chick peas etc too.

I don't view a highly processed product like Quorn to be "healthy" not that I'm saying it's "unhealthy" either, I just don't consider it as a healthy option, based on the way it's "created".

It's simply a very highy processed food at the end of the day.

If you are just eating Quorn as a means of "fuel" I can identify with that very easily. The problem I had with Quorn was that it did not live up to the claim that it was almost like meat and was a great meat substitute. I'd say that Quorn could be fairly compared to some very poor quality processed meat products that are so far removed from being made of real meat that the resulting meal was similar...

I've enjoyed soy/tofu based dishes that did mimic meat dishes but that was in China many years ago.

From what I understand Soy based food isn't considered a healthy option these days either but that's not stopped me from eating them on occasion.

It was never banned. Things just have to go through the usual process of approval which takes time, but every food has to go through.
Yeah I did a bit of a google on it earlier - seems to be more a case of people having concerns over supposed reactions to eating the stuff.
I've tried a range of Quorn products and thought they were thoroughly miserable food options...I'm not a vegetarian but eat and enjoy lots of vegetables and fruits. This isn't a rant against Quorn, merely an opinion.
I really don't understand why people think the sausages are nice but to put this into perspective, I also think the average british (meat) sausage is repulsive junk too!
Think of it like chicken. Just a textured protein, not a lot of inherent flavour as not much fat flavour like pork sausages. But it can easily assume flavours added to it. So sausages cut up in stew/casserole, or from bbq. I personally like them well done and with ketchup/gravy.
There's lots of protein in a banana and lets be honest, they come in the same shape as a sausage! ;)
I'm not sure if you eat chicken or not but being objective, there's no comparision between real chicken meat and Quorn unless you shift the goalposts completely and use Chicken McNuggets as a comparitive product which you classify as "chicken" ;)
If you find Quorn sausages interesting to eat that's fine by me but it sounds like you have to have them well done and covered in sauce to make them palatable? Probably a bit like low grade sausages I suppose.... :)

Rats... Was hoping people had more luck. I have two rubbish Locals near me, but walked the 1-2 miles to the bigger one, that had the peas at 910g (or something). That price was £1.50. Next option was one that's about 30mins away by bus, but it's not sounding as promising now :-(

It is national, but will be limited to stores with stock. I picked up one in Dundee store last week, they had loads. Heat added OP - brilliant price! Xxx :)

Same price in Folkestone, heat

Just picked one up! Thanks OP!

Yes, but it's not national. Stores in Burnley, Bolton and Manchester Heaton Park seem to have finished their sales. Just selling some non lego star wars merchandise cheaper now and the odd city set. It depends on the individual stores stock.

A better deal than the windows app version (Something I thought I would never say). Despite the better graphics of the pc version I can undoubtedly say this would be less frustrating to play (and keep the saves intact).
Who buys games from the Windows store anyway? The PC version keys are cheap these days and what makes the PC version frustrating to play exactly? It's the best version. This is the next best thing on the current consoles and still a great game, but not any more than that.
There was a windows store deal for about 6 quid a few days ago, hence the windows store purchase. That's what I was referring to, not the sweeping pc version generalisation you seem to think. If you don't know why windows store games are horrid then please look into it. I really don't want to explain.
Are you not thinking of Rise of the tomb Raider?

Yes you're right, I just realised.
