This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

No idea how good this stuff is, can't imagine it has great coverage at this price and will probably need a few coats. But if you need some cheap magnolia, might come in handy.

Don't waste your time, very poor paint.

Not sure what you were painting with this, but its much better than all the cheap tat on offer, that is the same size but twice the price!

Tried to get some of this again, about 4 weeks ago, its been sold out for an age at this price, might get 1 can in 1 place, so if you have the time to ask them to tell you where the stock is in store, well worth the money!
Not done loads of painting myself but what I have I used Leyland trade paint.

Excellent coverage and not thick like most non-trade paints on offer.
good deal for landlords
OOS everywhere in Kent and Sussex
Not for me, best budget magnolia paint I've used on many occasions is " Armsted" sold in dulux decorator centers, I have also used their white emulsion but this was very poor!

I was overselling it a bit

Obviously that's just my opinion and an assumption, I don't know for sure. I'm just going from my experience of cheap paints. Maybe somebody wants to use a coat of cheap magnolia as a primer before putting good stuff on after, who knows.
So, I can actually provide some feedback on this paint as I managed to buy some several months ago and used it over the weekend.

Scenario was re-painting a room that had been poorly decorated a few years ago.

The room hadn't been used and, as the walls had previously been painted in magnolia and I was short on time, that formed my base coat with minimal prep - a quick wash down sufficed.

It's a surprisingly thick paint which goes on very well and has good coverage - goes on a darker colour but dries to magnolia which was ideal as I was re-painting a light colour so I could clearly see where I had already painted.

Screwfix reviews mention the paint having a funny smell but I didn't experience this.

The only thing I can't attest to, at this stage, is durability but I'll set my expectations based on the fact it's a value paint.

If you can get a tub, I'd go for it as it's surprisingly good for the price.
