Any AAA deals? Most things seem to use AAA these days. Or at least the things I do seem to.

These were £2.12 a couple of weeks ago with free super saver delivery. Had to buy 5 packs to get over a tenner, but I thought that was the normal price! D'oh.

Pro tip, if you live within walking distance of a University, find their 'Science building stores'. I can walk in, and get these in AA or AAA for £2 (at Essex, others may vary). They don't check if you're from the university, they assume you are a student or work on site (I am btw so I don't feel guilty lol)
You can also get other great deals on stationary that's much cheaper than in the shops since they buy in bulk and don't bump up the price, which is rather decent of them
Only other things I've bought are scientific permanent market pens (fancy i know) for 65p each, and a carbon copy notebook for £5 (which looking online seems expensive but it's properly branded).

Hope this helps you battery hungry bargain hunters

No wonder university fees are so high

You can never have enough AA's - good deal, thanks OP!

yep, that's it. bloody cost-price batteries.

They are so high because the Gov said 'You can charge a maximum of 9k regardless of what you teach and what it costs you' and all the universities shouted wahey! When you consider many people get less than 300 hours of teaching thats £30 per student per hour, most lessons will have more than 10 students in and most lectures I attended had 100 - 200 people in.

Like I said, wahey!

Luckily I was in the last year group for students that could get fees for 3k per year. I personally wouldn't recommend paying 9k a year for uni unless its one of the top 10 in your chosen subject. The lab based work is good, but the lectures are a waste of time since they put the presentation slides online for you to download so you can read through them in half the time it takes for a lecturer to read them out (which is all the majority of lecturers do). Anyway, this is all my personal experience, overall I am happy with paying 3k, but wouldn't be for 9k.

Not entirely correct, the government actually said to Uni's, you can charge what you want up to 9k because we are no longer helping you keep the costs down. All Uni's have to do many returns breaking down their costs per student etc and the money they make on them (I should know, I have just sent in the Transparent Approach To Costing return for the one I work for). So, where as before the funding was £3k plus the government paid a huge chunk, it is mainly funded by the student

£2.89 here too, but extra 10% off if you buy two packs (£2.60 each)

I once bagged a Norwegian lady in such a University shop (& we didn't need any batteries) ...but that was a local offer & you may have to ring in advance. I didn't work at the University either ...she still writes (most 'Norwegian would')

I pay 9K per year and don't find the fees too high, to drink, smoke, party, do the occasional bit of work during term time I'd say it was a steal.

Not only did I not pay fees, I got paid to go to uni and my degree meant I got jobs upon leaving rather easily as not that many people had one. Sometimes its better to be old

Luckily I'm Scottish and go to a Scottish uni so I get my fees paid for me. When they announced the 9k fees I was like, 'Phew!'.

A working in TRAC you'll know that the lecturer's spend most of their time off-campus doing their own research projects instead of helping their students. To be honest for £9k per year they should be doing a hell of a lot more for students.

Posted 2 weeks ago at £3.04 now down to £2.91!

Ours is only a small university (3k students) so the majority of our lecturers are on site most of the time. We only just broke even on the publicly funded teaching side of things and made more money from the NPFT stuff and internationals

Ordered! Good price for these batteries. Thanks OP

please note these are not Duracell Plus which usually sell at 40p to 75p each

Yes. Kodak ones usually come out pretty poor in tests. Best value are Ikea ones - £1.25 for 10 which is less than half the price of these, and they always do very well in tests.
