Waitrose - Pie d'Angloys Cheese 2 for £2.20 with Pick Your Own Offers, Normally £2 Each

34
Found 11th Feb 2016
Normally £2 each. On offer 2 for £3. Pick your own offers takes 20% off. But the 20% comes off the full price giving an 80 pence reduction from £3.

Cheapest I've ever seen this at £1.10 a go! Lovely cheese, very creamy, just make sure you leave it to ripen.

Thank you OP already on 'pick your own offers' here at the normal price

Not sure it's a "glitch", that's just how Waitrose's pricing system works.

As far as I've ever observed it's ALWAYS the case that the Pick Your Own 20% comes off the unit SEL price
so if an item has a reduced sticker on it (eg short-shelf life clearance) say £2 to £1.50 on it then you'd still get your PYO 20% x £2.00 = 40p off the £1.50.

and similarly the long-standing offer of 2 x Pastrami's at £2.29/each of 2 for £4.00 also has the PYO 20% off based on the £2.29 unit SEL price.

Another tip [I'm in my local Waitrose most days] is that when meeting Waitrose spending targets - eg the basket £5+/weekday (£10+/weekend) for a credit for the cost of a myWaitrose'able newspaper, or say £30+ to use a £X off a £30+ spend (my)Waitrose coupon ... is that you do NOT have to factor in any myWaitrose reductions - ie it's the GROSS cost of the basket that has to hit the £5/£10/£30 threshold and then you get the PYO 20%, myWaitrose discounts/credits/coupons etc netted off before paying.

Incidentally the myWaitrose newspaper credit is for the MOST expensive valid newspaper in your basket too, not just the first, or the cheapest - unlike say multiple items buys where it's usually the cheapest item in the valid set that you get free.

It's in interesting to know, I would have thought the discount would come off the price you were actually paying.

That's for the edit, that's interesting to know. I had worked out that the cost of the paper counts towards your £5 total spend to get it free. But I didn't know about the reductions.

Oops, good point thanks! I think I just pressed 'G' on the drop down menu and hit gaming by mistake instead of Groceries. Edited now Although cheese and gaming do go very well together

Absolutely ... it's all a learning game with all the Supermarket's pricing schemes. I too initially imagined PYO gave 20% off what you'd paid for PYO products, but have learned that it's 20% off the current unit SEL!

Example re learning : at the very beginning of the myWaitrose newspaper offer... as I have prepaid/subscription vouchers/coupons for newspapers - I found some ignorant staff tried to say "ah but you've had the paper free, so I can't accept a coupon to pay for it" whereas Waitrose were always clear in saying the [weekday] offer is "buy either The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail, Scottish Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Observer or The Times, spend over £5 and receive the money off the rest of your shopping." - ie you are still buying the paper & hence could submit a coupon to pay for it!

And specifically, it's before the free newspaper discount so you need to reach £5/£10 - price of the newspaper to get it free.

I do like a nice cheese pie...

Is food poisoning included, or is that just for camembert cheese?

Who doesn't?. Cheese and pie are two of the best foods ever. Think you could cram some bacon in there?

Is it like dairy lea?



Umm, no, not really. Less sour, more creamy, has a bloom (edible skin) on it. Is spreadable when ripe. Bit like Camembert with a slightly different taste. It's not a scary really strong cheese, it's quite mild. Try and see if you like it!

Thanks for posting, heat added

This is the best, most delicious, non smelly, non wierdy rind, gooey, spreadable, bit like brie/bit like camembert, miles away from dairy lea cheese. But, you can just buy one in Sainsbury's for £1.50. In my opinion a better deal as I don't like being pressured into buying more of anything than I would normally want or need, one of these per shop is fine, don't require 2 thank you.

By the way if you are in Waitrose getting this, try some cropwell bishop beauvale, it is a blue, but all the same good qualities of this pie d'angloys.

I normally buy two anyway, it doesn't last long around here and it keeps a while. Thank you for the recommendation, I will try it out

Like I said, I normally buy two anyway and it does work out a fair bit cheaper.

Sorry for the double post, bloody android app not showing any of my comments again, I'm not on a mission to get people to just only buy in sainsburys, honest

The cost of the free coffee also counts towards the £5 target

very nice. just finished one yesterday. will buy more

So on Sunday I only need to spend £4.95 plus a coffee and an Observer? Wow, thanks both for this amazing info! Let's hope Waitrose doesn't monitor HUKD and block this rule in their computer system.

Yes, not bad isn't it X) and just £1.05 on weekdays with the guardian!

Yes absolutely : Observer (currently) £2.90 + a takeaway cup for a Latte (say) at £2.15 [as in OP receipt] = £5.05

Weekend Target to get myWaitrose credit for a valid newspaper purchase = £10.00+
so £4.95 of other purchases required to meet that target to then show myWaitrose card and get the £2.90 paper credit and £2.15 "Free Hot Drink" credit.

Don't worry - Waitrose know 100.00% exactly how their till system/myWaitrose benefits work - it's only us HUKDers who need to read HUKD to keep learning new money saving tips most days

Seems so!

I never drank coffee till they gave it away for free. Dirty pushers. I don't drink it at home. You can get tea instead of coffee, but it's always Earl Grey I think. I prefer a stronger brew.

I don't read newspapers, I am always shocked how little there is in one when I get a free one. I pick them up for other people though and save a few for messy chores!

Me neither in fact I dislike some so much it become a moral quandary
didn't stop me buying 39 copies of the sun when there was free cider involved

I can see your quandary. There aren't any I feel good about holding in my hand.

I asked in the co-op if they have any more Daily Mails for a voucher once. Never lived it down,get filthy looks every time I go in now *sigh* I won't be doing that again. Not a bad offer though
