38
Found 6th Sep 2014
Kohinoor Platinum grade 10 kgs basmati rice is 9.25 pounds which is half price from the normal rate.

Hope this helps some people at least.

p.s - always scan or enquire the price at tesco and don't just rely on the displayed price label

I've never, ever seen anyone type '9.25 pounds' as opposed to '£9.25'.

Heat added by the way.

which store is it?

which store is this. not available online.

hot deal thanks for posting, but which store was this in?

naahh you cant best "Badshah" pakistani rice.

Tilda premium is the best basmati rice, then Kohinoor Platinum. badshah doesn't stand in front of these two.

4th person asking which store was it at? It's helpful to mention incase it's certain store/area specific deal. Thanks

Just wonder if this is better than their Gold XL range?

I have tried badshah, tilda and kohinoor gold, but the best i found was Zebra. Nothing even comes close to it, shame it's expensive and these big chains don't stock it.

I've never seen my local stock this, will check later, hopefully they have it

It's typically done by people who have a lot of international dealings. It's probably better these days with unicode and so on but back in the day we suffered badly from the "pound-hash-dollar" syndrome. For example USA character sets (reasonably enough) don't have a pound symbol and you never knew how these three characters would be displayed at their end. If you sent a telex offering to sell at £100 and it was displayed to them as $100 you were in trouble.

I had a home phone bill from BT once where they had misprinted the pound sign as dollar and hilarity ensued when I actually paid them.

Could anyone find it on another shop / Is it nationwide ?

Actually you can quite correctly use "best" as a verb as above although it is far from common. Alternatively this was simply a typo.

I stocked up on their Gold XL rice 10kg £13, still have 50kg worth left, but this seems even better value. Not tried this though so need to buy a bag and see.

50kg of rice? Man, that's good going. I hope you like risotto.

This clearly will be store specific as the Platinum range is priced higher than the Gold XL which for 5kg bag is £6.50.

Good deal. Hope it is available nationwide.

Clearly another 'deal' which only the OP ( and evitka ) seems to have been able to take advantage of and who has remained silent despite several requests to name the store where he/she found it.

Didn't realise that on HUKD you had to check with two or more members before hand to see if they could get the deal before posting.
Hot!
Thanks OP, just got a bag.

I just loot the Tesco Value version

You don't. But it would help if the OP (and you !) would ID the store where you got it.

Has anyone got this other than the op? Tesco in belfast never seem to have these bigger bags. Shame.

not at walsall

I've seen this in lancashire blackburn store if that helps, maybe it's national

I do a lot of business on eBay and always write GBP or POUNDS to make things clear. Likewise when I'm contacted by chinese nationals they write in the same way ... US DOLLARS, GBP etc.

Not good enough, when you post a deal you must be on high alert to ensure that all queries are answered in a prompt and timely manner Heat by the way.

Monaco Blue, you can't always be on high alert, what are you meant to do if you are at work or asleep? I'm sure the op responded as soon as he/she could. People won't post deals if they are worried they will get told off for leaving home and not responding quickly enough!

Maybe I should have made my initial comment clearer, whereas I see the need when dealing internationally to state GBP,Dollar etc, I've never seen anyone on a UK forum for deals, where, bear in mind 99% of the deals are in Sterling, state '9.25 pounds' (or similar amount).
