free glass hire
in The event planning is under way, the food and location are booked – all you need now is to buy the drinks and glasses.
But why pay out for expensive glasses when you can borrow them for free.
Sainsbury’s offers a free glass loan service. Simply visit our Customer Service Desk in store, pay a £20 deposit (which you will get back when the glasses are returned) and you can borrow the glasses for up to seven days.

We charge a small fee for any breakages, and if you’re borrowing more than 100 glasses, please bring some ID, such as a driving licence or passport, when placing your order. Speak to a colleague at the Customer Service Desk for more information

If it's free it should be in freebies. It's not a deal.

I think it's a deal as you still have to hand over a deposit and if any glasses get broken (which they always do) you will have to pay for them! I used the Sainsburys glass hire when I got married and it wasn't free then!!! Thanks for sharing OP!

Why on earth are so many so obsessed with this site that they take it into their own hands to try and police it?

If people didn't think it was a deal then it would be voted cold and shortly disappear. If they do then it will be voted hot and hang around for a while. There is no need for people to constantly flick through threads moaning about how it's "not technically a deal" or it's "not technically a freebie" etc.

heat .from me

Heat from me. Technically I think its a good 'freebie deal'........

Very Well said!!



It is precisely because members do that that this site can exist and be useful. Thanks to most people following some very simple rules, and thanks to a dedicated team of mods, this site is a success and you have hopefully benefited from it. But you only have to watch new deals for a short time to see a large number of posts that pop up and then are marked down as spam to realise that if these rules didn't exist this site would be a chaotic list of random posts from people that are too daft to use it.

I always go to specsavers for my glasses !!

Only issue I found is that is have to give them plenty of notice
The glasses can be mismatched
We had for our wedding, and on the day of collection told me they did not have enough.
After a polite exchange they travelled 40 miles to get me the glassware required : )
Would prefer to use the Waitrose Glass Service

Waitrose also does this for free (deposit needed).

there's quiet a few supermarkets that do this and have for years - if you don't hve a sainsbury's near you it's worth checking out the others
many also do things like fish kettles etc if your having an event

This is an odd deal. What is in it for the supermarket? I would assume they would have to clean them on return as well just to make sure they are fit for further use so they will be out of pocket.

They hope that you are going to buy something to serve in the glasses while you are there...

Morrisons also do this you just have to buy some alcohol instore
