Thanks for the info, heated added. Don't know why the freeze before hand though?
#3
These don't seem great deals and they're at dirty tesco..
#4
Good prices. Especially the mushrooms and tomatoes.
#5
I paid one of infrequent visits to Tesco a few days ago.
I was amazed at some of the "Sky High" prices. No
wonder they can come up with these offers every now
and then.
#6
LOL @ pic.. Good find.. Nice to know. Heat added.
#7
Ok, just to put in context, for those of us who use the supermarkets for our regular shop, the mushrooms at 500g are the big packs, the normal 250g packs have been hovering around the 80p mark for ages now, so 84p for 500g is good - very good. Gone are the days where Asda were doing two 250g packs for £1, now you'd be lucky to get two for £1.50.

Same with the tomatoes, I would normally expect to see them at about 80p for 6.

So those two offers I would consider to be a genuine half price offer. Whether they've actually got enough on the shelves is a different matter.

Can't comment on the carrot batons, as I don't buy the pre-prepared stuff.

Potatoes don't look like much of a deal, just trying to big up the variety by the looks of it, with a 'posh' name.

And I'm not sure the cabbage is that great a deal, depends on the size really. The supermarkets recently seem to have been charging around the £1.30 mark for a disgustingly small cauliflower so when they dropped them to 50p that was more realistic based on the size - although having said that Tescos and Sainsburys suddenly seemed to find a batch of larger ones when they dropped the price which was rather nice.

But I digress.

Firstly, can you please supply a link to a better deal?

Secondly, I have never seen a "dirty" Tesco store.

Thirdly, the deal is for VEGETABLES which grow in SOIL, so you have to WASH them before you eat them anyway!

Frankly, I found your post inaccurate, pointless and, if Tesco knew your real name, open to libel proceedings.

Just a note on the comment on the potatoes i dont know if you have tried them but they are one of the "Finest" products that actually live up to the name the Exquisita are totally lush ...light fluffy and barely need any butter added to them so well worth the quid imo :)
#13
Tesco are always last to join the party when it comes to offering a good deal...well they do have their fat-cat shareholders to think about after all...wonder if they'll be posting record profits again this year? :whistling:
#14
Tesco veg prices are absolutely disgusting, esp considering the lack of quality (for the prices!)
#15
Since most of this sort of stuff will be sold today with all the nutters madly shopping for no real reason and nothing replenished tomorrow then will nothing left to buy! Pity as would have been good offer.

Even at half price, the rubbish tesco touts as fresh veg is still over-priced.

Absolutely no point in posting any more deals then? Time to close HUKDs down and all tootle off somewhere else?

Ah well, I really enjoyed HUKDs while it lasted. I will miss it.

I would think DIRTY is referring to TESCO's seedy & questionable business dealings.

I have never understood why Tesco is No.1 retailer, if their customers got out a little more and shopped elsewhere, they might get a few surprises... I do shop there, rarely (despite being near one of the the biggest ones there are!) and must be best described as one of their least desirable customers, as I only ever go there when there is some particular loss leading deal is worth the bother!

Actually no - I think you are spot on. Tesco's regularly sneakily push up prices from say £0.80 to £1.40 over a month or so - leave it at that price for 4 weeks (often with none on the shelves - which I know when I have gone out to look for a specific product label) then WHAM, offer a BOGOF at the new inflated price.

This example would mean where they were happy to sell to you at 80p for a pack, now they are duping you into buying two at 70p each - more money in their pockets at no substantial loss to themselves.

The tomato's prices seems decent this said, but having bought on the vine so often, salad ones seem bland (not just Tesco). Morrisons and Sainsbury's price drops have been reported by other good users of HUKD's in the past few days (Asda can't be far behind) and Lidl/Aldi have so many ongoing specials all the time - if you can make it and don't mind spending a little more time nit-picking what you want from each, there are substantial savings to be made - while feeding your family properly.

I am going to Complain to Tesco's as none of these offers are available via there on-line shop website :thinking:.

Another libellous post. Tesco do NOT use "seedy and questionable business dealings". If you think they do - post them.

"I have never understood" is the most telling part of your post. Oh, I agree with you, it is easily possible to buy produce cheaper elsewhere. Where I disagree with you is when you say Tesco are using "seedy and questionable dealings".

The reason Tesco are number one retailer in the UK is because of clever marketing. They subtly raise and lower their prices across their range of products to appeal to their customers. There is a world of difference between that and "seedy and questionable business dealings".

For the record, I am in no way associated with Tesco other than as an occasional customer - and I have no great loyalty towards them either. I just object to folks coming on here and using terms that would land them in court if the companies concerned could identify them.

Also, if "Yomanda" meant "Underhand" (as opposed to "filthy") why did they not say so? you and I still don't know for sure exactly what they meant.

As for Tesco using "sneaky" methods (as another poster has said) - how so? Is it any more "sneaky" for them to raise and lower their prices than it is "sneaky" for us to try and outwit them by shopping around and comparing prices? It is a battle of wills - but I like to think it is a fair one.

So fair dinkum you think? You think we are being sneaky in being attracted by their deals? WE are paying for their jobs and livelihood - you call us being sneaky - sorry, but you're a fool.

Tesco's like all the supermarkets must sell 1000's of different products but I will highlight only a couple of Tesco brands from my own experience. Tesco Party Sticks Dippers - 40p, then 55p at next visit then 68p, then 85p bogof, before settling back to 62p or so for some time. Tesco Honey, £1.21, then £1.32, £1.89, 2 for £2 now settled at £1.77. This makes Tesco own products prices more volatile than eggs, bread, milk, petrol even the stock market! I am afraid you are unable to read between the lines and see the game they are playing while parading as our consumer champion. You don't wanna see it - fine, stay blind and be mugged.

BOGOF's used to be loss leaders to attract us into the store in the hope we will buy other things doing our regular shop (remember when Xmas sales in Dept stores would offer a washing machine or TV for a tenner - that kind of sale). Tesco's deliberately push the base price up progressively in preparation for a BOGOF. The BOGOF then becomes a game where they are still making a reduced amount of profit than than a loss leader (actual loss). They abuse the 28 day rule buy listing the item at the inflated price for 28 days, but don't necessarily stock in in their stores (only needs a SEL, even on an empty shelf, for 28 days to be 'advertised').

I am neither an employee nor specifically against Tesco, but cannot stand anyone abusing and bullying the market in the way they do.

We no longer use Tesco's for our main shop despite it being the nearest to us. I ONLY go there for BOGOF's and similar deals, often posted by the kind users on HUKD.

I have known 5 people who have worked with Tesco - all of them have mentioned various grievances and they restrictions they put on staff. They only one still there - after 13 years employment - still struggles to get time off for kids and pre-booking holidays for trips abroad.

They have not go to no. 1 by being totally above board. Tesco's remind me a lot of Microsoft, or PCWorld in their respective markets. Bullying, aggressive, over-priced items, somewhat underhand tactics - dirty - well not that I know of, but doubt they would be listed in Sunday Times top 100 companies to work for!!

[QUOTE=dink]Another libellous post. Tesco do NOT use "seedy and questionable business dealings". If you think they do - post them.

Actually, they do. There was a Panorama documentary on BBC1 not that long ago highlighting their questionable tactics. The reality is that they are a market leader due to these tactics. Same as other companies are in other fields. Welcome to the real world, eh?

The other reality is that, as posted above, they increase their prices prior to planned reductions thereby making the 'deals' seem more pleasing on the eye. So what seems like a cracking deal to the customer is, in fairness, a slight con.

Finally, calm down on the libel front. As I see it, this is an open forum where people can express their opinions. If someone wants to berate Tesco, let them. I doubt whether Tesco would be particularly upset by it.

I don't do weekly shopping! (Never did, even years ago, when I was a lot better off, even then I did Monthly shopping in one store, with fresh food topped up as I went) but that's way out of my price range now, and I have to be much more selective!

I shop regularly in Lidl, Aldi, Somerfield a little, Sainsburys a little, Netto a little, Morrisons occasionally, Asda occasionally. More rarely Tesco.

One big limiting factor with both money, and physical needs is disability, which means the very big stores are too physically demanding for me to use regularly - I can be clapped out just walking from the car to he door in my local Tesco, the same effort would have me through the checkout in a smaller store. Having more time to do shopping this way is due to the same thing.... and I shop mainly evenings, when shops are quieter and consequently less like hard work.

Often which shop I am going to use will be driven by specific needs at the time, price offers (from posts here quite often) being a specific factor. I tend to be well stocked up on "everyday" items, bought at the right price, and find shopping for fresh items is the only chore - and the expensive part too! Tesco do have good individual offers, but overall they are downright expensive and not a way to buying groceries on the cheap, unless you tie yourself into those disgusting "cheap" value/smartprice/budget ranges, which are something I rarely buy items from, but are what the big stores put forward as serious competition to Netto/Aldi/Liudl pricing on standard products, yet fail miserably!

As I say, I am so fickle, I am not a customer that any of the chains would aim to attract!

I feel sorry for supermarkets when you have web sites like HotUkDeals and Mysupermarket. If customers only purchased their best deals on low margin sales then they would make a lot less profit.

I agree, and tend to have to do this to maintain a reasonable standard of living, but if I was working a full week, I doubt I would be able to do it nearly as carefully as I do now - although of course I would have more money to shop regardless of price if I was working full time!

Tad late sunshine with your info, i never said Express weren't open. get on the ball please, you are 24 hours late!
The deal was from Monday, hence the express deals would not have been applicable on the Sunday.
Very deluded, very uneducated misinforming the public with your opinions on 'deals'.
