Tesco Price GLITCH - 2 x "Simply Add" 600g Meal Bases £2 instead of £6 75% Off Instore and Online

75
Found 13th Apr 2012
Just spotted this on moneysavingexpert forum.

Tesco have mispriced a promotion for their range of Simply Add food bases which are normally £4 each.

The promotion should be 2 for £6 but instead is going through at 2 for £2 so only £1 for a 600g meal base saving 75%.

Looks like it's instore and online.

Bargain at this price.

Thanks to original poster on MSE.

Bargain, ta :-)
Cant see this on mse, you got a link?
So, Is it only for Tesco Beef Chilli 600G and Tesco Simply Add Tandoori Chicken 600G?
tesco.com/gro…265
OP, so you haven't actually tried it yourself then?
Not even sold at my store, used to but stopped a while back.
Normal price in my local, just tried it. Had to say I forgot my wallet
My order was processed for delivery this afternoon so we'll have to see if they honour the order.
Has anyone else tried this in store?

To the usual bunch of doubters/h8ters that seem to lurk here.......

I've now tried it myself and it is certainly working.....here's the receipt.

Here's the original post on MSE, the thread there shows it working both online and nationwide with about a dozen members having already bought with the glitch.

The Chicken Masala is only £3.25 normally so buying two of them only costs 50p.

This range isn't in all stores so your mileage may vary but it's certainly working and is nationwide and online as well, good luck all.

Updated title to show this is working online as well.

can the mod please remove the london tag as it's nationwide judging by comments elsewhere.
Sorry, looked in 2 of my locals and could not find it in either (Hayes/Yiewsley) - seems more pot luck, but good if you can get it.

If you use the Tesco Finder App you can find out if your local store has stock before you go.

These are great for students as they're a perfect microwavable meal if mixed with a rice or potato element.
Don't sell them in my tesco......checked today...

It's possible your Tesco was out of stock.

Given you can buy a pretty good meal base for 2 people for £1 it's probably worth checking again today (Saturday).

Working in our local extra but not stocked in our smaller express.
We had three varieties to choose from Meatballs, tandori chicken and chilli. Freezable so picked up 2 lots, looks like big portions even for 2, can't go wrong for £1 a piece!

This is definitely still working today and now unlikely Tesco can fix it till Tuesday.

In the thread on MSE it's currently one of the hottest items and I'm surprised it hasn't gone even managed to achieve hot here.

600g of Curry, Chilli or Spicy Meatballs is an absolute bargain for a quid or less.

Its also possible that they stopped selling them months ago, like my local. This is a bargain, but is not in all stores.
Found today in my Extra store - a heads up, they are not near the Simply Cook, but near the carton soups in the fridge counter.

And still working today (Sunday)

Just tried this online and it is only for chicken masala and chilli chicken but like op said 2 for £6 but is going through at only £2 a great bargain if they honour it online
"Sorry, this product is currently unavailable."
LOL , I just added 2 Tesco Simply Add Tandoori Chicken and 2 Tesco Chicken Tikka, TOTAL PRICE: £2.50 .

Me say thank you very much!
Nice, ordered 6 online. I assume they'll be fine to freeze..
Products not available anymore on the website, they removed them.
Original Poster
Just means that it's now out of stock on your store, if available in other stores people will find them.
I think they removed the promotion from the website. I logged out and can't find anymore these products.
I can still see them, only coming up with the tandoori chicken now though...
can you give me direct link please?
OK, works for delivery but nor click and collect. Orderd 12 packs , paid the £3 delivery so £12 in total, not bad :-)
Please note there is a further glitch on the Chicken Tikka, it charges just £0.50!
