Found 15th Nov 2015
4 Litres of decent quality motor oil for £4! Not much else to say!

Found in Asda Mount Pleasant in Hull, but may be national if someone can confirm?

Also currently included in the colleague 20% off special discount event!

For reference, the same stuff is currently £31.99 at Halfords.

Had a look earlier today none in my local full price at £28

Must be an error, nothing showing on their website or mysupermarket. Have you got proof of purchase of it showing £4?

Yeah, they don't have this one on their website at all. Only the 1L for £9. Yeah, check my receipt link in first comment.

Very strange. It's £28 and that says reduced from £9. Weird.

Yeah, that's what I thought! Had to ask the lass on the checkout to check the price for me first. Shame I can't use it in my car but got some for my brother's!

Ye I searched the oil for my car and it's 5W-20E that my car needs and also that oil is meant for Ford cars. Luckily for me it's reduced atm from £9 to £6.50

clearly a misplaced label if the check out lady had to go and confirm it.

She didn't have to confirm it! I asked her to scan it as an item enquiry before she scanned it through for me It's me that wasn't sure, barcodes matched on the product and label

Ok mate, I'll just sit here with my cheap oil and contemplate that.

you covered the rest of the receipt so we couldn't see if the checkout lady has done a price override or not. poor attempt at stealing heat

Yeah, because heat is THAT important to me. How about this? Don't really want to share my whole shop with you, but there's no foul play here More receipt

No idea whose error causes these, and how far that error spans... sounds like a one off this time! I was staring at it for ages trying to figure out what the catch was haha

If this deal exists, its a bargain! Wish i had known as was in Hull yesterday

This sore may as well disable comments it's become a playground.I don't understand why people criticise so many who post discounts..isn't that the point of the site? If they don't get it, maybe should look elsewhere for their pleasures....

Your receipt shows cooking oil

Why would he need to lie?! He got a bargain.. You didn't... So what?!!!! … Why would he need to lie?! He got a bargain.. You didn't... So what?!!!! Jeeeze some of you must have way too much time on your hands


The OP made the deal sounded like it was national when it's most likely a misprice in that particular shop. Also the barcode on the shelf sticker (which was actually for 1 litre oil) was different to the one on his receipt so we couldn't tell if the oil he bought is the one he claimed. I just wanted to point out these discrepancies before people make a special trip for the oil and based on other people's comments no one else seemed to have benefited from the deal. I have bagged myself a few mispriced deals over the years but never bothered to post them cos as soon as a staff spotted it at the check out the fault would be closed. The OP may have got lucky but he should have stated the facts clearly so other people can judge for themselves. Sorry if I came across as a bit too aggressive with my comments.
