    Laithwaites have an offer for new customers - £40 off plus free delivery, code TV40

    It's on their website so not a revelation but quite good timing for Chrimbo :)

      I'll be sipping a glass or two of the golden amber and, maybe, a glass of a good "Red" from Aldi or Lidl

            Its not a bad offer. I cancelled my Laithwaites subscription yesterday. Partly due to the price after the offer and partly due to being spammed daily with emails from them.

            The wine is ok but better offers for similar quality wine can be found in the supermarkets when they have wine reduced and 25% off 6 bottles.

            I took advantage of the 25% off this week, buying 24 bottles for customers. I then felt the need to tell the cashier why I'd bought so many.

              I'll be making beer this weekend but it will cost me a bit more than that. Now that we don't buy malt direct from the maltsters it will cost me about 77p a pint. Traditional English Ale this time for the winter months.

                I got that same knowing look that they gave me when I bought 2L of gin and 2L of vodka to make sloe gin/vodka. Funnily enough I felt the need to explain that purchase as well :lunapic 130165696578242 5:

                      A couple of years ago Tesco had someone who didn't exactly shine in calculus doing their Christmas wine offers. They had any six- get 25% off, and any three for two and 10% off when you spend X all at the same time, AND gave me loyalty voucher £50(!) off if I spent so much on one shopping AND bonus points... I counted that if I buy any more bottles Tesco will have to start paying me :biggrin:

                      It was the same year when Tesco had so many accumulative offers on Chocolate Oranges that they ended up costing 10p each and people were stockpiling and selling them on eBay.

                      Sadly, they have now apparently hired someone with a bit of mathematical grounding to do their offers. Gone are the beautiful olden days :cry3:

                        I signed up for the Tesco plus club card this month. Spending £7.50 has given me savings of £30 this month. OK, they tie you in to shopping there but I shop at Tesco anyway. Not quite in the 10p chocolate orange league though.

                          Oh for the good old days of Tesco wine glitches.

                          Plus ''refund and return' where you got all your money back plus kept the product if you were overcharged.

                          During a wine glitch, saw some promotional signs left on display, but no cases of sparkling wine there, but plenty where they'd changed them to full price, so filled a trolley, paid full price, and went to customer services for our refund (showed them the on offer signs).

                          They were so totally confused by the wine offer reductions, case discounts, etc., that they gave us back more than we paid, plus we kept the 3 cases of sparkling wine. Those were the days!
