3 for £3 Krispy Kremes (Staff honouring error)

32
Found 6th Nov
Ok so yesterday I bought some Krispy Kremes from a motorway services - the sticker on the cabinet advertised '3 for £3' which I initially thought was just the basic donuts not the best ones, however the picture showed both different boxes - the classics and the fancy ones, I asked the staff if this was correct and the guy hadn't even noticed the sticker (they're usually maintained by Krispy Kreme staff) but as it was advertised he had to honour it - needless to say I got 3 of the best! So I thought this was a one off however my husband saw the same sticker in a completely different store today and again despite the fact it doesn't scan they had to honour it! So check your local one for that stick - yummy

Still way overpriced for a doughnut

Why would you pay £1 each for doughnuts? I just can’t get over the hype on these, having resisted due to price for years, then relented after being convinced they were absolutely incredible, and then being underwhelmed. They’re ok, they are fairly nice, but they are just doughnuts.

they don't have to honour it as it is an invitation to treat surely... not legally binding

They don't have to honour it but sometimes it's best to, just to avoid a situation

So cost more than £1 any way?!

this one needs deleting, its not a deal, it was an error and they probably fixed it as OP went out the door, they dont have to sell anything anyway, goodwill gesture and even worse it was yesterday.

The op mentioned seeing the sticker in two stores. So there’s a good chance they maybe more store having the sticker and are prepared to honour it.

whilst I wouldn’t make a special trip it would be worth having a look if you saw a Krispy Kreme stand surely.

Will keep an eye open! Thanx for posting Op HEAT ADDED

Jammy deal.

Yummy, heat added op

Save yourself the money and go to LIDL, their jam doughnuts are way cheaper and taste WAY better.

They have a lot of variety. Did you try all?

Same as any other misprice then?

Bought 102 dozens last time (charity fundraising ones), as you do. Sometimes still think the car smells of Krispy Kreme.

Shop around, Morrison's sell a pack of 5 donuts for well less than a quid.

They have to recoupe the money somehow for putting crack in them

For the people who don't 'get' kispy creme, who advise to go to lidl or Morrison's etc to get 4 for a quid or whatever, you just don't get it do you. And you've said that, but it's just not the same. Maybe you're not donut people, maybe you prefer cheese, or cat food, or salmonella or something. Krispy cremes are just insane. You can pay near on 70p for a friggin mars bar these days, and these things give so much more!

£1 for a donut!!! Can get the big selection boxes out of Costco for £8 and that's still a rip off

Are they the type where everybody can touch them before you buy them

They are nothing special and way overpriced. I bought a box last year as the wife was was bleeting they the dogs to find out they were crap.

Donut people omg. The best place for these things is in the bin. Full of sugar and calories they will do you no good at all. Have a look at livestrong.com/art…ts/ and think again before pigging out on these things.

C'mon guys... I know the world is a terrible place and none of you like living in it, but seriously... Lose the grump every once in a while!

This is definitely a good deal for Krispy Kremes if you can get it... It's no less a deal than Tesco goose chases which go hot.

And to say you can get 5 for £1 is just the same as saying people shouldn't get Jaguar cars/Sony TVs/Apple phones etc etc because there are generics that look reasonably similar for less money.

In my law module for accountancy I believe tej1 is spot on... the display of an item with a price is considered an "invitation to treat" which invites people to make and offer - in our modern society that offer is usually the price on the ticket... But until an offer is accepted neither party is bound to it. In theory, you could walk up to the till cash in hand and they can still refuse to sell to you, or ask for a different price etc.

It's the same reason you can "buy" a mispriced item online and it then get cancelled by the website - the page with the misprice is an "invitation to treat"... You then make you offer by placing the order... they then either accept the offer and transfer the goods or reject it.

I believe this is because a guy once asked another guy how much he would sell his horse for... the other guy said "It's not for sale"... "Ok, but if it were how much would you take"... "I don't know, a fiver?"... "Sold!"... "WAIT YOU CAN'T TAKE MY HORSE I HAVEN'T SOLD IT TO YOU!!!"

I wonder if you're the one who doesn't get it? They're not just more expensive than 4 for a quid at Morrisons, but they're not even as nice, far too sweet.. I'm not against paying a lot for a nice donought, I'd happily pay more than Krispy Kreme prices for an amazing Pippin Donought, its just that Krispy Kreme really are nothing special, but obviously good job by their marketing people.

would it affect my statutory rights?

Krispy cremes are in a cabinet that are nothing to do with Tesco, the rep comes in daily to fill it up and put the offers on, so the offer is right it’s Tesco that haven’t changed the till price.

Bit unfair, tastes are different and change over time... I remember buying a dozen from Harrods and taking them home to my parents when I was in Uni - they were disgusted but I thought they were probably the best thing to hit the UK in the last 50 years. Ten years on, my wife now says they're too sweet and they're starting to get too sweet for me as well - but our kids love them.

And, again, this is a specific deal for a specific brand of doughnut... So comparing to other doughnuts is bascially off topic.

Maybe a bit, but as I was replying to their comment about people not getting it I think it's fair.

As for commenting on the deal itself. Sure, it's clearly cold as it's not a deal, just a misprice that they are under no obligation to honour.

i wouldn't have thought so as you have not purchased anything
