Here’s a tip though if you’re in store. Look at the price label. The special offer price labels are yellow and white. At the bottom they have an offer end date. But it’s written backwards so 200325 is 25/03/2020

That means the offer will still be on for all of trade on 25th but new price will start on 26th.
By law they can’t have an ‘always on offer’ price as that then has to be the new price. Products have to have a certain amount of time at full RRP in order for a special to be special.

Some times an offer will stop prior to it’s official end date but it’s most definitely an exception rather than a rule. Typically an availability issue or an error correction.
Just for clarity.. here is the proof of them changing an offer

They do it quite a bit, I have numerous posts about it, in this thread and other threads for food, I often warn people to snap stuff up and do not rely on dates.

One happened just today, and if you check google cache is shows it. I was holding off going to the shops until I had a big spend and my food had run low. They had loads of beer on offer for €30 for 24 cans, heineken, guinness etc.

The offer has been pulled 2 weeks early

google cache shows it was there yesterday

I bought 24 cans of Heineken for €30 in Tesco today.
I had a €15 off €70 voucher so together with some groceries it was good value.

I just emailed a friend about it, who also said he got heineken today for 30

told him it could be pulled from the online offers to discourage people from ordering for delivery, they have ads on radio now saying to visit the shop if you can, and leave slots open for people who really need it. People reckon they make a loss on deliveries, and the old people using it right now are getting free delivery.

You'd think that the supermarkets wouldn't be bothered doing many offers at the moment. Everyone drinking at home pushing up demand. I have noticed Heineken gone from shelves at various times in my local places.

All promotions are agreed with the supplier up to a maximum qty , once that qty is hit the promotion would have to be paid for by the retailer and they never do that. So pretty much every successful promotion ends early !

the promotions are done by the supplier not the retailer and a set amount are agreed for the year in advance as part of price negotiations .

Suppliers have to honour these over the year anyway and right now as a marketing strategy you could argue is a better time to promote than normal.

Does anybody know if Dunnes are doing any offers on slabs of Bulmers or Heineken?
They usually do the promo on slabs at the same time as Tesco.

I wont be doing the shopping until Saturday so I haven't checked yet.

Went to Tesco at midday and kept driving. Queues were mental. Won't be going near the big supermarkets for the foreseeable.

At that rate I don't think I will bother so. There will more than likely be no slabs left, especially if they are on special.
