LocalFound 28th Oct 2009
I went in to my local Sainburys (urmston) to see if the toy sale started as i passed on the way to work, alas that one is tomorrow. However i did notice that the balloon time helium cyclinder sets were reduced to £5.75 from £22.99, it comes up on the till as a discontinued item so it should have general availability allbeit limited to stores with stock, there were 3 left on the shelf when i bought one this morning, this is the 30 balloons set. Hope it helps someone out there.
If it has been posted before then apologies and just delete/expire as needed but i could not find this posted on hukd

I'm not sure my landlady will see the funny side if I fly my flat to South America.
Ah, could have done with a few of these for our school winter fair that i run, but our sainsburys doesn't stock them
Great price! Will check on the way home, heat added - cheers!!!

Just think - if Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin had seen your deal, it would have prevented this:

I hope my local have it for this price, great for the kids' parties. Possibly only certain stores discontinuing by sounds of it but always worth a look.

Yep same here......... still £22.99 and no half price toys !!!!.............. start again tomorrow !!!!....................:whistling:
Went into Frome Sainsbury this afternoon. They had a good few in stock but were priced at £22.99. Took one to Customer Services and told him word was they were discontinued and should be priced at a fiver. He checked his computer and said they weren't and that it wasn't being discontinued in their store. Apparantly only certain stores discontinue certain items depending on their demographic and store size. Just because one discontinues doesn't mean they all do. Lesson learned! Wasted trip but suppose I should have rung first
£22.99 in my local store too :-(
The tills won't know if an item is discontinued. The only prompt anywhere close is a DO NOT SELL prompt for items that have been recalled.
I got one of these in Asda for £18 the other day and compared that with the £45 I paid last year for one for my wedding thought I was on a bonus. Might go check out a couple of my local stores tomorrow as got tons of balloons to blow up for daughters party Fri, and my parents 60th in a couple of weeks, Oooh I hope they have them
still £22.99 in grimsby store been looking for one these for my sons christening in 3 weeks

Now that is some dedicated deal posting :w00t:
Full price in 2 I tried. If you can get it at this price lucky you.
Checked in Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Perton and Leicester and they are showing at the £22 price.... May be they will get reduced... well here's hoping....

Glad you got your bargain though !

Now that is dedication LOL. But seriously, I think that was really decent of you because I won't deny that I, and probably others too, thought this might have been a bit pie in the sky as is seen on here occassionally. Cheers and rep added for being so thorough
