New Lidl price reduced label - 20p and 70p (instore)

LocalFound 7th Aug
3007091.jpgI was looking at the 30% discount section of Lidl when I noticed a new 20p label. It's a new idea, on the last day, they apply these labels to avoid throwing out the food. They are not as noticeable as the orange ones, so you have to look out for them. As an example, these sausage rolls were down to 20p.

If you're poor, believe me, nothing is wasted.
These price reductions are very welcome.

Sorry, I meant to say 20p and 70p. I am not sure if I can edit the original
Thanks for posting
So glad they are barcoded also

I hope so - we won't have to fight over it.

At first, the cashier only applied the 30% discount, so if anyone buys these, make sure they do it right at the checkout
Can the moderator change the post to 20p and 70p? I made a mistake. Thanks

Yeah, not a bad shout, in fairness.

The level of food waste in this country is criminal though.

Especially when some people are literally going hungry, in some areas.

Yup totally agree. Supermarkets need to pass the extra stock they have to the ones who really need it and not to the ones who have enough already, then everyone is winner winner chicken dinner

Not necessarily as something like these you could freeze to use another day or ignore dates as most are a load of rubbish in any case!
Good to know, thanks op
Good find, you'd be lucky to gat any item reduced by 20p! in Sainsburys .heat
Have some heat:D
Good to see some supermarkets are finally catching up on this, 20-odd years ago I worked at a Somerfield, the staff used to regularly reduce stuff down to 5p each and purchase it all for themselves.

I think 5p sausages from Safeway stopped me starving when I had a student job there
The orange labels are useless
I got some more bargains today! I was told the labels are new this week. If the items don't sell with the 30% discount, then the 20p (or perhaps 70p) ones are applied. Note that the ham still has two days left on the sell by date.

Yes seen this my local store as well except they only had two items rainbow coleslaw 20p and mushrooms for 70p! But at least I know they do this so will keep my eyes peeled
Another benefit of Lidl.

Britains best supermarket. Love the place.
lol - why did they not stick the green one over the orange one?

A sensible question. I tried your suggestion, to see what happened. Firstly, the round label was stronger, and had no splits in it. I found it difficult to remove.

When I stuck it on top of the orange one, it was easy to remove both, because the 20p one held the splits together, without any damage. Thus, the double label, once removed, could be easily stuck on anything, such as a really expensive product.

So, the answer must be - "for security reasons"

thanks, a good answer but instead of fully covering then why not partially cover then leaving at least one split free?
the orange is much more visible so people are going to process that and miss the green one - look how far apart they are on the sausage rolls!
@mouseclick Any idea when stores do the markdowns for the 20 & 70p? Not having much luck in mine. Maybe they do it the night before closing for next day OR first thing in the morning? Any ideas?
Thanks
So far I've just seen coleslaw, spring onion, (20p each) mushrooms and mango slices 70p.

Not sure. Seems to be varied. I think as it's such a new idea, they are experimenting.
I lashed out and spent another pound today. I have already eaten the Caesar salad. I swear it tastes better when it's only 20p

Ah ok no worries. My stores don't have much. May ask the staff next time I'm in.
I believe that stuff under £1.50 ish will go to 20p anything else 70p?
Although the stuff I have seen at 20p is all under £1 ish
They had lots of Asparagus tips marked to 70p however these were only £1.40 normally so not much of a saving
Also any idea what happens if you find an item with todays date unmarked? Thanks

I agree, and my local store is now partly covering the orange labels, as you can see in my very recent post. I guess things will standardise eventually.
Nice haul yesterday
Chocolate Trifles x3 20p
Fruit pot 20p
Chef Select King Prawn Chicken Chorizo Paella 70p
Deluxe Chicken Prawn Chorizo 800g Paella down from £4.50 to 70p!!!
