Reduced pricing in supermarket - result

Every now and again, someone gets a result.
Last night was mine.
I'm not sure if there's a new person let loose with the price reducing ticket thing in the supermarket or what, but.....

£6 topjoints of beef were £1.
£8 packs of lamb chops were £2.
£7 pork joints were £2.

They were all due to "expire" today.

Being quite unashamed in these matters, I filled my trolley to the brim and wheeled just over £200 of meat to the checkout, then watched as the bill came to £201 minus £160 in discounts = £41 for the entire shop.

Freezer full, me full, dog full, fridge full.

Result.

Thank you.

    I love the reduced bargains.  It's the people that feel the need to take all the bargains and leave none for anyone else (me) that p**s me off.  You scum bag

    That's quality. I have actually been trying to get to certain supermarkets at the right time to get lucky.  I have not.

    Nice one.  I always go for the bargains and have worked out the best times to go (as above Sunday 1hr before closing is good, but varies between shops) i've never managed to procure £200 in one trip.

    When we were a bit short of cash at uni, we'd wait until our mate who worked at Morrisons was on a shift one night, then follow him round the store... he'd price loads of stuff down for us to silly prices! Good times...
     
    Of course, they did eventually sack him.

    We do not forgive. We do not forget.

    last time i was in asda on a sunday around 3pm i noticed a hoard of people hovering around the end of a refrigerated isle, a guy came over with a couple of boxes and started piling the meat into a space in the fridge. i'm not kidding, the people rushed to the pile like flies around ****, i had no chance! all that was left was a 100g roll of ham.

    If it makes you feel better mate, I also got 2 x reduced cooked chickens.
    I originally picked one up priced at £4, went to get some loo roll (store brand, obviously), went back past and realised they'd been discounted to 69p each. So I got 2 for about 1/3rd the price of one (put the first one back).
     
    Going to eat quickly now before getting back to the maths - 8 lamb chops from the "finest" range coming up.

    I stood at the cooked chicken counter for 15 minutes the other day patiently waiting for the guy to reduce the chicken.  I stood alone for that whole time.  The guy bagged up the first one and stuck the reduced sticker on it then placed it on the top of the counter at which point this woman who'd just turned up reached out to grab it.  I've never hit a woman in my life but this was close.  I used the ninja speed reflex to swipe it just before she got her hand on it.  I then gave her the death look and said to the guy behind the counter "I'll have two of those please mate seeing as I've been waiting so long".  I think at that moment she realised how close she came to the end of her life

    I always do this, commonly filling my freezer with reduced priced meat, much cheaper that way then just defrost when needed

    It's war out there man.  I see the same faces racing round the isles with trolleys full of cut price goodies every night.  I know my enemies.  It's just a case of out witting them.  I'm gonna start taking in my own yellow stickers to put on things as diversions.  That way I can swipe the real stuff whilst they're still trying to figure out what's going on.
