Well written piece in the times today about the xmas sales and all the % off vouchers and how they are misleading. Thought it was worth posting on herehttp://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/retailing/article5254358.ece
i have copied a little of the peice here
Threshers, for example, has a Piper Heidsieck champagne on offer at £29.99 a bottle before the 40 per cent discount. The Co-op, however, which usually sells the same bottle for £25.25, is offering it at £16.84.
Wine Rack is selling a bottle of Mo?& Chandon champagne at £33.99 a bottle. With the three-for-two offer the price works out at £22.66 a bottle, and with the 40 per cent discount the price would be £20.40 a bottle. A bottle of Mo?at Tesco was priced yesterday at £25.86 and at Sainsburys £25.87.
