Falling from £1.77 to £1.11 and now down to £1.01 after consecutive rises from £1.47/£1.50 to £1.61. Nice to see Sainsburys lowering prices for once, which might be because Tesco already did and Sainsburys are doing the same. Anyway, when I last looked at these, I believe that they had just gone up to £1.77 so this is a big reduction of 66p or 37%.
If you don't mind powdered milk or pasteurized for that matter, then this seems a very good deal. Not a special deal/offer or anything, just a reduction and a big one at that. I have started using it for making yoghurt and mixing it with bottled sterilized milk, which is what I prefer and grew up drinking, as the price of that has shot up. It's a pity that the farmers aren't getting anything extra from the bottled milk price rises.
This stuff keeps well, the ones I purchased are good until February 2013 so it might be worth stocking up in case the prices go up again.
There is no direct linking to the Sainsburys online shopping products so I used mysupermarket comparison which HotUKDeals has replaced. A similar Tescos milk powder costs £1.15. Go to http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/groceries/index.jsp
and search for Sainsbury's Skimmed Milk Powder, Basics 400g
Or search google with those words and see the mysupermarket link that I found with the Tescos comparison.http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=mysupermarket+sainsburys+skimmed+milk+powder+basicshttp://www.sainsburys.co.uk/groceries/index.jsp
