Hey guys,

Just got back from Tesco with this beauty. Picked up a bottle of the Tesco own brand sun screen (SPF15 in the orange coloured spray bottle). The shelf label said £3, however when I put it through the self scan, it went through at 6p.

The funniest thing? I had no change on me so had to pay for it on my credit card! Doh

Anyway, you should be getting through this stuff like no tomorrow with the current weather, so go load up!

The barcode off the back of the bottle is 0305 2945

Cheers!

NOT a misprice..... some stores have old stock that is reduced.

Indeed - they do it in SPF30 as well - but I wouldn't put money on that going through at 6p though I'm afraid!

Nice find! Pity I can't get to Tesco's today or I'd have got some.
The other half threw away my suncream collection simply cos some of it was like 5 years old:whistling:
Some people :roll:

I dunno, expected this to be hotter, maybe practically free sun screen and protection from skin cancer isn't as high on the agenda as Frijj milkshakes :whistling:

Most people are probably out enjoying the sun 8-).

I have one of these that I bought about four weeks ago, is it the clear spray as mine smells of spirit and was thinking of taking it back? Didn't pay much but wonder if its ok, smells a bit like nail varnish remover.!!

Balls. Went out and bought the cream rather than the spray! Wondered why it went through at £3 - Do'h

More Tesco suncreen stuff: Saw the pocketsize packs of spf25 with skiing type packing were reduced from £3 to 39p, didn't post as a deal as may of just been that particular Tescos, and I snapped all the remaining lot up

Its in a spray bottle but comes out milky/slightly creamy. Smells just like like normal sun screen stuff to me!

Don't forget to take a copy of the barcode with you just to make sure you pick the right one up!

Went back to Tesco Helsby and they had 3 different 15's - the cream that I bought and 2 identical sprays with slightly different packaging, all in orange. None had this barcode!!

So pleasemake sure you write down the frigging barcode if you only going for htis deal

I'd take a photo to upload of the actual bottle to search for, but my bloody sony camera just blew

Sorry!

Most large tesco stores have scanners on the aisles so you can price check. I think the one near me is shut soon so will see if any left on Monday.

Lol - who on earth just cold voted pretty much free sun screen and why?

Guess they've seen it cheaper elsewhere? ^^

Seriously? Theft?
I very much doubt this could be classed as theft at all.

Yeah, what happens if they misprice something that's normally £19.99 and misprice it at £19.98. Are they going to send the hit squad onto people who purchase them as they've just committed a heinous crime without realising it? Lol.

Then it would be within the realms of a 'believable' pricing structure, which is a little bit different to a 98% price drop.
You really need that explaining to you? You're not intelligent enough to work it out yourself?

Of course there are people out there who don't care whether it's theft or not (to be honest I don't particularly care), but by the same token there are people out there who do actually care This site is HotUKDeals, not HotUKStolenGoods...

Just need someone with the "they wouldn't care if they overcharged you" argument now :-D

Spend enough time on this site and you'll see such discounts aren't outside the realms of possibility. Including at tesco where often the £1 stuff they sell goes down to 10p or sometimes 5p.

Being overcharged is different unless the price on the shelf was incorrect. If you purchase something and the store overpriced it then surely by virtue of purchasing it you are agreeing to the price?!

Well, quite.... You said it yourself. I'm sure Tesco make a few hundred million extra every year by pricing things wrong. I can't see a handful of cheap bottles of sun screen causing them any problems.

Omg, I've just taken a screenshot of this, it's that hilarious that it'll cheer me up if I ever feel down.

Theft. Rofl, good one.

Does anyone know if this affects all stores and if it's still available?

My local where I found it was Burnley, I told my sister, who popped into Leyland at about 1pm and also managed to pick some up.

Apart from that, thats as much as I can tell you!

Obtaining a pecuniary advantage in full and deliberate knowledge is classified as theft under The Theft Act of 1968. People tend to have very flexible morals when money is involved though, especially if they see it as something small and insignificant that they can get away with...



Somebody chose to put that price into the Tesco database for that item. A Tesco employee, choosing to sell their own item, at that price. Nobody here did anything to select or alter that price in any way, they have only chosen to purchase said item at the price that a Tesco employee selected to sell it at.

As I said before, omg rofl @ theft. You are indeed a tool.

Trust me, that isn't physically possible.

I would like to know how section 16 of the theft act 1968, which is obtaining pecuniary advantage by deception be applicable in this case of buying something advertised at a reduced price. Even if very heavily discounted?
I thought gaining pecuniary advantage by deception was for situations such as false accounting , or lying on a cv to gain a better paid job which not qualified for, etc. I really fail to see where the deception part comes in this case. Then again, what do I know?

Maybe you could enlighten us with your knowledge instead of moralising?

Er no its not, that particular offence was replaced in 2006 with the fraud act.

Even if it hadn't it certainly wouldn't apply to this as a misprice (if thats what this is) doesn't fall under the old law, as it was to prosecute people for gaining a financial advantage, such as an overdraft or credit card where they wouldn't have been granted one if they told the truth on the application form.

Top idea :thumbsup:

Its last years stock has a different barcode than the current stuff because of all the hype about sunscreen having a shelf life. Thats why I can't take mine back as it scans at 6p and the stuff on the shelf is £3...........what shall I do as it must be off as it smells like thinners???? (get 6p back or try to blag a replacement)

I must admit that I don't think it is theft. I do however think that it is wrong when someone tries to express an opinion that does not fit in with the Gimme Gimme Gimme attitude displayed by some on HUKD then they get slated. Everyone thinks that if someone tries to speak from a moral standpoint they should clear off "back to Church" treating them as if you scraped them off your shoe for expressing Christian values. I really do despair at the way some individuals insantly resort to swearing and insults before attemping to discuss it in a civil manner. It may seem petty, but not attempting to understand the viewpoints of others lies at the heart of quite a few of our social problems.

And I'm sure pointlessly accusing everyone of being thieves (Hint: look up 'Libel') fits in with their obviously amazing Christian values and overwhelming high horsedness :whistling:

Point is the patronising fella tries to belittle people and quotes laws that don't even exist, and states his baseless argument as cast iron fact.
