And I am sure you are buying loads to donate to your local food bank rather than guzzling obscene amounts of food whilst others starve. Oh I forgot we live in selfish heartless Tory Britain!

agreed, free, but its a promo glitch and possibly store specific, depending if other stores reduce their stock. not voted either way

Why don't you sell your PC or smartphone or tablet you are using right now, cancel your internet subscription and donate all the proceeds and savings to the food bank?

Think this should be posted in the main Deals though.

These deals/ 'glitches' aren't store specific, they happen all the time... You just have to be clever with what you buy. It happens in the summer with strawberries too you end up getting 2 punnets for 50p, all deals there work the same when the stock is reduced, it's really cheap and really good food

You can't donate food which is expiring that same day, no food bank would take it.

"What a great deal! I'm sure food banks would be grateful for anything you couldn't fit in the freezer. I might pop out myself and see if I can get some to donate." Fixed that for you. Oh I forgot we live in whinging one-upmanship all mouth no trousers Britain!

Can't believe Waitrose haven't sorted this out yet, it used to happen when I worked there in 2009

As long as they haven't stuck a blank sticker over the barcode so item is processed manually it should go through fine

Happened to us at Morrisons last week,no idea what the original deal was but Aero mousses were reduced to 9p we bought two lots and some sort of deal went through the till & they were free.

I once bought 2 cakes at half price which were part of a 2 for 1 offer,cost 49p each but took off the original price of 99p,profit of 1 pence!
#15
Happens at Tesco as well with the "3 for 2" offers. If it is e.g. £2 off the original price and the reduced price is e.g. £0.50, all 3 items can be free + something extra free as well.

They've started to sort it: if now you go through a "manned" till and the original price is going to make the final price free or money back they're supposed to process it manually (which removes the original price from the equation). Will probably still work through a self serve till.

It used to happen in Tesco but they were loosing too much via this route....

Waitress they are a different breed... they make the employe JLP JohnLewis Partner in which WaitRose is part of so they give their employee the share of their profit... In other words Waitress can afford it.

the best way is make sure you have more than the £0 total so that when it comes to pay you pay something.

as above WR can afford it and that is why they are not soarting it. FGS they are giving free Hot drinks to their members....

Waitrose are the best out of all the supermarkets for reducing the prices on food that is about to go out of date.The 3 for 2 offer always works at Waitrose even after the reductions.This is nothing new , my local Waitrose reduces the prices on food that is about to go out of date at 10am every morning.I have regularly nipped into my Waitrose just before 10am and filled up my freezer . on many occasions with the 3 for 2 taking off the original price I have ended up getting more than the value of the reduced items from my shopping receipt.

..

I was meaning the final price of the items that you're getting in 3 for 2, not the overall total for the entire basket/shop. Irrespective of what your final total is, if the checkout staff see you with a reduced set of items that are also on some sort of multi buy discount, they're now supposed to manually do multi buy discount(some staff may not notice of course...)

To be honest it's better than m&s chucking it all out and then pouring ink all over it!

Mater of fact the WR in Westfield Stratford reduce some of the perishable items by half price a day before end date.... when I saw this once I asked the staff member and she confirmed this is regular... I am sure other branches do it as well....

That's right dalips, Waitrose reduce the prices the day before they go out of date and if they don't sell they then reduce them even further on the expiry date.Like I said ,nothing new here .When I used to shop at another Waitrose they did the same thing and of course all Waitrose stores will do the same.It's just that as most of the population shop at the so called big four they don't know that Waitrose reduce the prices to as little as a quarter and many times even less than that of the original price.The other supermarkets only take around a quarter off of the original price and that's even on the expiry date.

Thanks to Waitrose and the Sell By Date reductions generally, I manage to keep my head above water and feed my family.
I have never had to resort to a food bank - because I do my own leg work and get my own cheap/free food.
I often come out of stores with carrier bags full of food, for which I have paid a couple of pounds. ... and sometimes pence.
Waitrose is one of my favourites.
The food quality is fabulous, I get a free hot drink while I shop, often a free newspaper, and again, trolley loads of free/cheap food.
On a few occasions the total bill has been negative..... so I have had to quickly grab something off the shelves to at least be able to hand over some money.
Although on one occasion, the sa did actually hand me the money !!!!!!
I kid you not.
I genuinely did not know some of the reduced items were on linked offers, so I was more shocked than the sa when the till showed a negative balance. I was going to grab something else, but the sa just opened the till and gave me the money.

I don't like it when that happens, as it draws attention to me, and I don't want to have it flagged up to head office - who could decide to alter the way their system works. That will be a dark day for my household.

There is a food bank opening soon in my village.
TBH, I cannot see why.
I could have fed the entire population of 3 large towns with the amount of food I have seen reduced to a few pence in the local supermarkets over Christmas. Most reduced by 90 - 95%
Trollies of fruit, veg and bread.
Fridges of meats, cream, trifles.
Trollies of cakes and pies
I buy as much as I can carry, and give it to family, friends and neighbours...

There are year round bargains to be had, all you need is to get off your backside and spend some time and effort.

But, I think the greatest impediment is snobbiness.
Many people wouldn't be seen dead rummaging through the 'reduced' food. Obviously it is beneath them, and they have plenty of money.
Which is fine by me. In fact, long may it continue.
More left for those of us who are on very tight incomes where every penny counts.

You moan about this, yet you post this;

"Free food Morrisons Birmingham City Centre, 4/5 October"

Take all that to the food banks, did you?

Why are you all feeding the troll that is MJV ? I am sure he/she can feed themself with all that free food from Waitrose

I use the self scanner so don't worry about the Sa deleting the 3 for 2 and can also make sure I don't have a negative balance.Her indoors you are right it would be a dark day indeed ,but by the O.P posting this as a deal/freebie it highlights it to Waitrose.Hopefully this won't get too much heat and the rest of us won't miss out in the future !

You're right about that one, give it too much press , mention it too many times and eventually Waitrose will do something about it !

These are the rules

Fight Club members do not talk about fight club .

Wizarding folk do not talk about Volde....(I can't say his name) and only call him by He-who-must-not-be-named.

and finally

Waitrose customers Never, I repeat never talk about the reductions to non Waitrose customers .

Everyday all sorts of disposable food... fruit veg soups frozen bread best of all cakes which I love, mainly daily at closing time they will put a trolly with reduced products near the counter...


but the day before reduction mostly apply to fruit and veg as I only found out a month ago don't know exactly what they reduce a day before but even some of the fruit and veg is excluded... as an e.g. that day the staff was reducing mangoes, avocados, apricots and papayas which I got... hope it helps
