Yes, I have had a lot of deals at tesco. That are on shelf at full price, but go through till at deal price. The staff stand there puzzled :-)

Obviously Tesco would want you to think its National, so that you go there only to find none exist and spend the money on other overpriced rubbish while there

Buffalo hard disks.....like Technika TV...? I'm going to dare to suggest that they're not just really cheap 'cos they're being all nice and stuff'.

Tesco do this all the time and for some it just puts them off from shopping there

All in all I think I'd rather see another SSD '1p cheaper than 10mins ago' deal posted than another gaggle of geese.

They do these sort of promos to create foot fall cos how many people will go in just to see and end up buying something.

I own a Buffalo, it very quickly developed bad sectors. I would not recommend.

Cheap, but I had one and it died within a year...

What do you feed it with? With the wrong diet leading to an overly acidic excrement they can develop bad sectors in the garden.

Can't believe there are still any left. These must be either hiding in their stock rooms for an occassionaly break out or customer returns for hukd buyers. Lol. Been posted so many times in last 5 months.

Wont be national.
Yellow sticker reduction.....

teh arn

Wont be national.Yellow sticker reduction.....



beat me too it.

any deal that has one of those stickers, is specific to that store only.

Check one it Tesco Beckton few minutes ago and is scaning full price 44 pounds

Scanned at £44 at my local too

The last two buffalo drives I've opened had Samsung Spinpoints in them. They were 3.5 drives though, so not sure about portables.

Buffalo make the external casing not the drive. Buffalo actually make a decent NAS solution. It's not a crappy brand.

Full price in Carmarthen (scanned).

scanned at £44 in my local store. This is not national store specific

full price per hand scanner in Prescot (£49?)

They tend to use Hitachi or Seagate in these from experience.

The yellow stickers are reduced labels, probably a deleted item and making room for new stock coming in it's place. Some of these comments are miles away from the truth. Great find if you can get one.

Full price at tesco bridlington

how does an item bought at one store and not available to anyone get in the top 10 deals?

Voting mentality on this site confuses me sometimes
