No not the TV programme but a blog about the rather silly pleasure I took from Tesco's 'interesting' approach to deals on Pampers nappies.
Pampers New Baby Size 3 (What can I say, Jacob is a growing lad) were on sale in plentiful supply. Packs of 29 were £4 each, a pack of 50 was £10 and a box of 74 for £12.
I do love getting the boxes because they last longer and the boxes can be used for storage once empty, very important when family members keep donating clothes!
But there wasn't any, so worked down to the pack of 50....until I spotted a flaw in Tesco's pricing....
The packs of 29 were £4 each or two for £6. Keen mathematicians among you will have already spotted the bargain. Yes buy two 29 packs and get 58 nappies for £6....eight more nappies for £4 less.
However, that was not the 'highlight' of this shopping trip, get two for £6 and buy a third 29 pack and what do you get?
87 nappies for £10, 37 more nappies than the 50 pack for the SAME PRICE!
In the modern Twitter parlance this would be classed as an #epicfail but it was a very welcome 'fail' by Tesco on this one.
Hopefully they don't notice the flaw for a while, could do with saving money as apparently it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....
I hope it's the same in Tesco stores near you, if it is then why not stock up!
