I think multi-buy deals on alcohol may also be gone eg buy 6 for 50 but could be wrong on that.

Don't want to take thread off topic with my thoughts on that, the takeaway is stock up now on these kind of bargains, you may not see them again.
Not sure if the use of spend & save vouchers will be no more as they don't seem to be covered in the legislation but multi-bottle wine offers like six for €40 or €50 will definitely be banned from 11th January next.

As you say, stock up now!

Yes and with the Guinness cans now the same physical size as normal 500ml cans it's much easier to stack them with other cans when building a wall of beer, no need to have single rows of Guinness crates in your stockpile, lol.

I also did not think the 10 off 50 vouchers were included but its a bit vague, it could be a "similar benefit"

They can certainly still have deals, like a pick & mix of 6 bottles for €40, as long as those bottles are not available for sale individually. There could be other ways around it, like if the bottle was the same wine but a different barcode is it legally a different bottle? They could overlabel bottles themselves to do this -though it would look bad in the press.

Guinness are allowed to list their alcohol as 4.1% even if its the regular 4.2% (as there is an allowable tolerance), so that would be a different product.

Discounted prices must last for 3+ days.

So people expect that there will be better deals next week before BHW.

Especially looking at Guinness cans preferably 500 ml

Yeah, there are definitely legal workarounds but I don't think the major supermarkets will do anything that goes against the spirit of the legislation for fear of the bad press.

Are the slabs currently these prices in SuperValu ? Can't see it on their website. Presume (hope!) the Guinness cans are 500ml too ?

I spend a lot less nowadays in Tesco and 2 days ago got 6 vouchers in the post, each for €12 off a €60 shop, one a week for the next 6 weeks.
Will use for booze only.

Tanqueray 10 in Dunnes reduced to ~€40.

Good price for a good gin with a voucher, not so much without.
