10 metre Christmas Wrapping Paper in Poundland Scanning at 3 for

49
Found 20th Dec 2013
The 10m paper, should be £1 each but are scanning at 3 for £1... possibly due to staff incompetence as the 3m is supposed to be 3 for £1, but nevertheless, if you can get it it's a good deal It's not too thin and cheap either.

I brought this on wednesday at I had to pay £1 each but still worth it.

Any need to be rude against the the staff. Maybe it's just gone on offer I'm sure the till knows what it should be

haha.. I guess ^laura1986^ works at the pound shop!!

No she doesn't but no need to be rude about the people that do!

Working for anyone eklse or just OP?

well it is incompetent if you loose £2 of what should be a £3 sale.. just saying

Regardless of opinions of staff at PL, this will just be yet another not updated error on the stock system, the staff do not set the scans, the update via HQ is the fault here. Also happens a lot in poundland on tins and stationary, for what reason who knows, but grab a deal if you see one!

I had the same with some small bears (about 12) that were sewn onto a wicker type basket and i guess they should have been removed separately but i was sold the whole lot for a pound because they couldn't determine whether it was a job lot or they were to be sold separate. Each of them were barcoded but for some reason lightly stitched to the wicker basket.

Wrap Up!

I don't like it when people judge staff by the type of shop they work in for example here poundland, fast food shops, cleaners, I think it's rude and judgemental. You'd probably moan if they didn't have a job and were sitting at home! Pssshh.

That's all well and good.

But people judge me because I drive a nice car and have a well paid job.... Why? Because I worked my ass off in education and didn't drop out of school at the age of 16 :).

Jeez... Get a grip! Those of you who have a bug up their a**e about staff being incompetent should back it up with some proof of their own exemplary performance at work and stop with the sweeping generalisations. Or they could just vote on the deal. Hot!

Too right!

We have big group discussions about the best pension plans and how to invest our money! You are invited to join us if you want

Tbf, H.O. staff are still staff, in didn't think the OP meant the shop staff, I thought initially of H.O. where the prices would be set. Its very rude to judge people for where they work; at least they are in work. I work in a supermarket to see me through uni and some colleagues are retirees who just want something to do, others want to make a bit extra money to be able to treat their kids to a bit more, and all of us actually rely on our job to pay our bills. If you lost your job would you refuse to work in an entry retail position? Or would you need the money just like we all do? Nothing wrong with it at all. x

I have a sneaking suspicion that people judge that you're a bit of a d**k and that your nice car is on lease, which you can just about afford because a decent bonus from your one good deal is still languishing in the bank and your nan doesn't charge you rent.

Depends what the nice car is....could be a bag of ****!!

John Terry should be happy!

Drives a nice car, but probably upto his eyes in debt.

I don't think the OP was being rude at all, talk about oversensitive. *Obviously* it's one or the other, Eg. On offer or Staff incompetence. Not rocket science.


And as for *delightful* Dan's comment, well, it is Christmas, so I'll leave it there....

So has anyone else been able to benefit from this deal?

cheers very much im a supervisor at poundland and I can say my staff are not incompetent and a merry xmas to u

well just to put things straight im a supervisor there and my staff are very competent merry xmas

I didn't mean shop floor staff, just someone A member of staff somewhere within the realms of Poundland has made a mistake. I also made no reference or judgement to them being incompetent as a reflection of the place they work, that's all your presumptions and dare I say pre-judgement of me that I'd do that. What's the saying about casting the first stone? Get off your high horses.

now we are slamming people for having a job ffs grow the feck up

Possibly due to staff incompetence?
Sounds very harsh on them; they're just doing their job and if the machine reads it as that - then you get charged for it.

Just be happy you got one over the system and don't go calling the staff incompetent.Who are you to act like you're better than them?
They're hard working people - an honest days pay for an honest days work
...unless you prefer them charging you more than what the till reads?

Edit. Im giving heat because its a good offer. But I think the OP needs to learn some empathy

you might want to read my second comment above "I didn't mean shop floor staff, just someone A member of staff somewhere within the realms of Poundland has made a mistake.

How dare you slate me for 'acting like I'm better than them' when you have done precisely that to me. Get a life,

Does everyone just find an excuse to argue on here lol? I'm new to this and that's all that people do ?

Bloody hell!!

Does anyone like me just want to know. IS THIS DEAL NATIONWIDE???!?

I work in pound land and can guarantee you that this deal was due to a staff error and not hq it's quite common for customers to bring 1 of the 3 for a pound wrapping papers up to the till with 2 that are a pound each, In a rush a employee may not realise and scan the 3 for a pound one several times, going to expire this deal as I know for a fact it is false was working on the till today they don't scan 3 for a 1.

Lol 'get a life' lol
