Talking about how they try scam people thinking their getting deals by increasing the price a couple weeks before they drop it so u don't actually save, quite interesting supermarkets taking the piss tbh

She went and picked up a pack of onions an then got the same onions loose and the were nearly £2 cheaper wtf??

Showing how they put up 'special offer' but they actually have gone up but they know when people are in that shopping zone they will just grab shit...they showed an add for a chocolate bar for £1 and then it said special offer 2 for £2

Going on mad brazen

So u can remember what the price of something was 3 months ago 2 know if there really has been a price drop?

Plus over the 3 months they have raised it by 12p so when they show the cut price with 10p knocked off it looks like it's a deal

I think sites like HotUKDeals and MSE should be publicly advertised for your average consumers. Thanks to the sites I've just ordered two Oral B Professional Care 1000 electric toothbrushes for £24.63, with a 10% discount, another 5% code and another 8% discount from Quidco making each brush £11. In comparison Tesco's sells it for £58 while boots do it for £30.

I wonder how much discount your average checkout staff gets.
