Weird Weetabix multibuy £2.00

I'm not sure how many in a pack..... but buy two boxes for £2 or £2.17 per box!
So for buying two boxes you save over £2 which makes little sense... better than bogof! :)

I don't know if it's online as I'm not a member of tescos online store! sorry!

There's a massive sign.... a big sort of display on the end of an aisle!:)

Seems to be the supermarkets new marketing weapon! For instance, Asda is selling a pack of 8 Dairylea Cheese Strings (or summat like that!) for £1.89...or 2 packs for £1.50, lol. What's the betting there will STILL be people buying just the one pack??

If the chocolate ones are included in the deal, go for them. My kids love them but not as much as I do!!!

nothing new. they're called 'loss leaders': offers (sometimes leaving no profit for the comapny) to attract you into the shop and spend more money!
#13

Thanks

I'm fully aware of the concept of 'loss leaders' but this 'buy 2 for less than the price of buying one' is a fairly new slant on the process. It's essentially considerably better than BOGOF. I also have it on very good authority that they aren't really loss leaders at all, in the sense that they put pressure on their suppliers to provide the products for the equivalently silly wholesale price.

It's a mixture of both, Tesco makes nothing on these kind of deals but equally the supplier makes nothing as well other than great advertising as they get a plum spot in the shop.

I would think they even pay the supermrket for the privilege.

These kind of strange multibuy offers have been used in Asda for ages, it looks like Tesco have simply copied.
#18
i think they do pay for the privilege
great end of aisle spot costs hundreds

remember that 450g of weetabix minis were £1.59 up until 2 months ago when they increased the pack size to 550g and £1.99/pack

FYI somerfield are currently doing 450g + 50% feee (ie 675g) for £1.59 in case you cant get hold of the 900g for £2 deal from tesco.

However weetabix have become greedy ******s in all of this by putting up the retail price for 550g to £2.19 now from 450g for £1.59 2 months ago!

Just to be totally negative - u can buy these mini weetabix packs in the 99p shop

More importantly, they are crammed full or sugar (28.2%) - DEAD BAD for ur kids teeth (and urs)

WHICH report concluded re Wheat Biscuits cereals -

Worst of the bunch:
Weetabix Minis Chocolate Crisp
per 100g
Sugar: 28.2g
Fat: 5.7g
Saturates: 3.8g
Salt: 0.95g

Weetabix 24's included

Good deal i will buy some
#23
Even if they make zero profit anyone who works for tesco will get a further 10% off, so a definite loss for someone somewhere.
#24
Surely the only people we should worry about making a loss is ourselves?
#25
I notice that in most cases when there are special promotional offers on e.g bogof, buy 2 for £x amount etc, there seems to be some quality issues regarding the items.

For example, there have been quite a few occassions when I purchase the Kellogs Frostes Wheats on promotion, the quality is somewhat not up to the usual standards when there is no promotional offer. The same goes for biscuits too. The bogof ones that I bought, the biscuit seems to be rather dark and had a slightly burnt taste to the usual one that were bought when there was no promotional offer.

I kind of come to the conclusion that it is the manufacturers way of getting rid of over supply of stock or bad batches of stock that were made wrong or not upto their usual standard of quality but still can be sold without the customer noticing that anything unusual.

Still, it is still good value for money!.

Has anyone else notice this too?.

If I buy 24 boxes the total comes to £57.33 with delivery . I then use a code to remove £15 making £42.33 to pay . With the multibuy saving of £2.34 for each set of 2 that should make a saving of £28.08 ( 12 sets of 2 x £2.34 per set ) , my final bill should be £14.25 , that sound right ?

24 @ £2.17 = £52.08
Delivery £5.25
Total £57.33

Minus £15 discount = £42.33

Multisave total is £28.08

£42.33 - £28.08 = £14.25

Sounds about right

Easier way to calculate would be

12 x £2 = £24 - £15 + del £5.25 = £14.25

I was trying to get the actual workings of the savings in my head , just incase I needed to discuss it with the delivery driver upon order total being more than I had worked out .

You misunderstand , I have had discussions with Tesco drivers before & have had to show them were the discount total actually comes from . Its no use telling them what the total should be , they need to see where it actually comes from in order to understand & reset the total .

What a strange but good offer! :thinking: :thumbsup:

Sorry, only trying to help, never had any problems with drivers and totals have always been correct, didn't think the drivers got involved at all just drop off your shopping and if you have any problems customer services sort it out

Thanks for your help anyway , for your info the drivers CAN adjust the bill via a Palmtop type device they carry .
