Hot

Is this in store?

cold ......prices have been pushed up ......old price £5 bottle is now £7 or more ......must think we are stupid .....eg Hardys Stamp Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon was £5 all this week is now £7.49

Unless theres a few 2 for £10/3 for £12 offers running alongside instore then I wont be going along. Agree with mrminster about the prices

Just need a 3 for 2 to go with it.

Used to by vast amounts of Tesco wine when they had their 25% offers on. Things haven't been so great for they last couple of years. These days I seem to look to Lidl for cheap (but drinkable) plonk.

Not in Chorley, 03/09/14 pm.

the tesco wine sales last year gave us 25% or more off good wines that were normally £5 & £6 which made them great value @ £3.75 to £4 .....you could stocks up with several cases and no one else would get your wine business for months afterwards ......seems tesco are losing their mojo and they think we are all mugs and will pay any price quoted .....this can be seen in the business performance of late and the underlying stock price

Things not looking too clever for Tesco at moment. My local has closed recycling centre, staff shortages, electrical dept looks derelict and about to close, availability of products not as before. Staff morale poor and customers moving away to competition. Aldi opening up soon will really help !

but the merlot is now down to £5 from £7.49, and the Crest Shiraz Merlot is half price at £5.49

Can I say that I feel not one jot of pity for Tesco. It's so obvious that Tesco's overarching aim is to make as much profit as they can for their shareholders rather than meet the needs of their customers, who guess what... want lower prices. Aldi and Lidl can do what they do only by accepting lower margins so in my book, they are looking after my interests as well as their own. Given their size and dominance, Tesco could swat both Aldi tomorrow by offering better pricing but I bet they never will because that means making less. All I can say is thank God for the Germans...

Seems good to me. Some decent wines are half price, down from £12 to £6. Get 10 bottles of those for £3 a bottle using the 25% discount plus a further £15 off a £60 spend using voucher code XXJJ7J (new accounts).

Nice one OP....was going to post this myself.

You will get the usual suspects moaning about "the great wine rip off" etc and also that none of the wine on sale is any good.

With the last statement in mind, I just got myself £335.00 worth of crap wine working out at just over £3.30 per bottle X)

Hot as you like !!

Yeah, great find. That's my local store

Not seeing anything on the online grocery site about this.

Cheers OP. Just picked up 6 nice bottles in store.
P.S. All prices have not been 'pushed up'. There are many new discounts, 1/3 off etc.

Read the small print
" due to minimum unit pricing........
Excludes 75cl under £3.65, 1L under £4.86, 2.5L under £10.95, 3L under £14.60......"

Very nearly got caught out! I love the Tesco Aussie Red - just under the barrier.

Love Fraud - Love Tesco.

Anyone bought the little bottles, did the 25% offer work?

see post above yours

So the little bottles are included xx although they are only £2ish, but they are only a quarter of a normal size bottle. So overall price would be over minimum price unit price x

What minimum unit pricing? Never heard that one before, except for Scotland.

But did anyone else note the other exclusions on the Tesco banner: "fortified wines and MEAL DEAL WINES"? Pity, as previously sometimes got a couple of meal deals with wine to combine with wine deal for double discounts!

Ordered 18 bottles, had the usual 9 substituted of which I kept 3, so just the 12 bottles.
Good deal, but bit of a roulette, as yous till pay the full delivery

One for the ladies. If you like a sweet white wine try the Tesco Spatlese. Works out at £3.50 a bottle if you go for the £1 delivery. Very quaffable fruity wine.

Tried to find some wine but it was all much more expensive than last time even with the discount.

Re: Minimum pricing:

Extracts from parliament.uk/bus…ing :

"However, in July 2013, following its analysis of the consultation’s responses, the Government announced that it would not be proceeding with minimum unit pricing after all.

There would instead be a ban on the sale of alcohol below cost price (defined as the level of alcohol duty plus VAT).

The ban on below cost selling came into force on 28 May 2014 and is now one of the licensing conditions of the Mandatory Code of Practice that applies to licensed premises. The ban means that a can of average strength lager cannot be sold for less than 40p, while a standard bottle of vodka cannot be sold for less than £8.89."

Strangely, I've read elsewhere (a few places): "a 750ml bottle of 12.5% abv wine needs to be priced at £2.46 or more" so I'm not sure where "75cl under £3.65" comes from.
e.g.: http://www.alcoholpolicy.net/alcohol-pricing/

" Can of 440ml beer at 4% ABV = 40 pence
750ml bottle of 12.5% ABV wine = £2.46
70cl bottle of 37.5% ABV spirits = £8.89"

Ah, I remember hearing that the proposed Minimum Unit Pricing had been dropped, but obviously hadn't heard the the alternative!

Thanks for the information. Cheers!

thanks for the heads up, Newburyplumber - and to the person who posted subsequent expansion on the pricing issue..

that's almost a swindle - quite a few people will get caught out there.

i was in the queue at tesco surrey quays this morning and someone in front of me spent over £90 on wine.

all different labels.

If you go to mysupermaket and click on any item it will show the price over the last 12 months, The Yellow Tail Merlot is at its lowest price for twelve months.
Don't know where you get your prices it was £4.99 less discount 2 hours ago.

This argument is somewhat flawed;
a) 90% of what Tesco sell is recognised (western) brands. The margin on brands is generally much lower than own brand.
b) Aldi/Lidl sell around 80-90% OWN brand (or exclusive to them) and thus only 10-20% recognised (western) brands. Their margins are strong, but the procurement COST of these to Aldi/Lidl is much lower than the brands Tesco purchases, hence they can sell at a significantly lower PRICE to the consumer and still maintain healthy margins. So no, they do not generally accept lower margins.

That's not forgetting Tesco (and others) have much higher overheads and costs compared to these German low price retailers - smarter and cleaner stores, larger stores, significantly more staff, 24 hours opening, locals as well as supermarkets, internet shopping, home delivery, hugely greater choice, fresh bakery, deli, butchers, chemists, self-service tills, the list goes on. These things add significantly to the overheads. Aldi/Lidl simply don't offer these services. Hence, why I (and I think the vast majority) would struggle hugely to do a full shop at the German retailers - even if you get some/many items from them, you still need to take a trip to Tesco/Sainsburys/Asda/Morrisons/a.n.other!

A better comparison to Tesco would be Sainsburys. Tesco and Sainsburys sell 95% the same brands, yet Sainsburys is (in the main) significantly higher priced than Tesco and thus Sainsburys margins are higher.

As for your first statement "make as much profit as they can for their shareholders" - find me any listed company where that aim is not in their top#3 goals in their annual report?!

FYI - to reaffirm the point, the "Aldi brothers" (i.e. the two owners of Aldi) are the richest men in Germany!oO

Don't get me wrong, I am no Tesco bigot or even a fan, but be fair; with their lowered pricing, clubcard offers, promo's like this one, initiatives like free click^collect, etc. they are one of the better supermarkets. However, perception can be misleading, but perception is the "German discounters" are cheaper - they may offer better value, but it is absolutely not a like-for-like comparison.

Horses for courses - you might wait a long time for Aldi to offer Veuve Clicquot @ £18 a bottle (which is possible at Tesco with this here offer!).

I like these deals when theres a glitch!!! i.e 25% off the full price rather than the discounted. e.g bottle of plonk 10 reduced to 5. 25% off incorrectly applies to the 10!!!! is this glitch happening in this instance?

Is the 2 for 10 pounds glitch working like last year

just bought £100 quids worth of wine instore. Hot!

When I sent back 6 of the bottles I ordered due to inappropriate substitution, they refunded me the cost before the 25% discount. What Plonkers, not that I am complaining mind!

if only i'd known i'd've ordered 20,000 bottles and then returned them
