Sainsburys Bags for Life from 5th October 0.05 @ Sainsburys

Found 28th Sep 2015
So we all know that from 5th October the new law comes in regarding carrier bags and that they will cost 5p each. Well from 5th October Sainsburys are ditching their vest carrier bags in favour of a new bag for life they are bringing out, this will be a similar size to the current bags and cost you 5p. When compared to a vest carrier this bag is a lot stronger, much more durable and definitely reusable. In my mind a great deal if you forget to bring your bags with you.

And you can buy this at Sainsburys, then nip over the road to Aldi and save yourself a fortune.

They're half the size of normal sainsbury's bags for life. Essentially a 10p one cut in half, same design n everything.

Perfect opportunity to encourage more sales of the "bags for life"....wasted with these new not needed microbags
which can carry what exactly

because they dont get enuff money outta us as it is lol 5p for a plastic bag **** take!

​Uh, this is government mandated, but ok.

The best carry bags are from Ocado, big, sturdy and long-life, not like one-medium-pizza-you-can-fit crappy bags from Sainsburys/Tesco/Asda/Morisons which tear before you come home. Seriously, do one shopping with ocado every 6 months and keep the bags as they are much more convenient.

​I asked my Ocado delivery driver if they were going to have to charge 5p per carrier bag he wasn't sure. There had been some discussion about it where Ocado were trying to claim 'immunity' (for want of a better word) but so far it hadn't been successful. So not sure how that will resolve!

​make sure your next hot UK Deal purchase has a bigger reduction than 5p off the rrp and then you have time to find something else to cry about, charging for bags is to help prevent people from discarding plastic that can be re used

think!

I know asda online deliveries will be bagless unless you pay a 40p flat fee which they'll be donating to charity

Sainsburys will replace it for free too.

​I reuse my carrier bags as bin bags. many people have bags full of bags to use as garbage bins.

now I'll just have to buy lots of big black bin bags and have them lying around putting out the same amount of plastic! so now I'm buying more plastic bags and they need to make more bags for life which don't last and need to be replaced.

Tesco giving free bags for life for next few days one every time you shop, so a few little purchases will get you a nice supply !

Best reusable plastic bag, Asdas bag for life 6p strong handles thick plastic.
Best large reusable bag, Morrisons 39p bag. Cavonus, only carrier plastic bag that you can put a cereal box width wize. Stronge handles and very long lasting.

Worse customer service ever. Avoid

ASDA sell bags for life for 6p.

I've forgotten to take mine along a couple of times and felt the extra penny is well worth it. Now I have one at work, one at home in my bedroom and one in the bag I take out with me. Simples!

​Uh, this is government mandated, but ok.

its 5p you dont have to pay it dont understand why your all moaning like its gna bankrupt you !

I call my bag Barry.

Been into Waitrose today and didn't even charge for bags.
Obviously more bothered about keeping their customers happy by not relieving them of 5p per bag.

I shopped at Sainsburys late this week, maybe it was my branch but they wern't bags for life. They were like bags you get from an electrical ratailer or Debenhams. Thicker plastic, rectangular in shape without a special handle.

What's the situation with bags at the self checkout?

If only the government actually did something useful to conserve the environment instead of bag tax.

You have the option to scan, or to input the number you used at payment.

I'm Welsh and don't care for whining English 5p bag moaners. Besides, I'm busy watching the RWC. C'mon Scotland and Ireland.

Ah Sainsburys, apparently the only Supermarket using a legal loophole that appears to be giving LESS to charities from the 5 pence than any other. Nice one Sainsburys.

Lidl's carrier bags are pretty strong. Will their bag cost 5p for each as well? I remember they used to be 3p not sure about it now.

Or do like I do, don't submit the bag quantity when prompted through the scan scanner, just push the zero button.

Why pay 5p for a crappy bag, when you can have one of these £1 for life trolleys?

Personally, I don't bother with a carrier bag for my vests. I stopped wearing them now my mother doesn't make me tuck them in.

Yes now charging 5p for the old 3p bags only cause the new law though.

Depends where you shop (_;).
Sainsburys self checkout they had the 5p bags for life.
Asda on the other hand, not a plastic bag in sight and even the 6p bags for life were at "personned" checkout. - Stupid thing is, this is a little Asda where there is only 1 checkout with a member of staff and even then half time they were never there.
I had someone watching me like a hawk today when I was bagging my stuff up. Then I went back in cos I forgot something and she was still sodding watching me. This time she was carrying plastic 5p single use bags around.
