Multi-buy deals in British supermarkets could soon be permanently phased out as stores plan to scrap such deals just hours after news broke that watchdogs were looking to ban misleading deals.
Since this newspaper last night reported that misleading buy-one-get-one free offers and special deals in supermarkets could be banned within weeks under a clampdown being prepared by watchdogs, Sainsburys has become the first to say it will completely discontinue multi-buy deals in store. Instead it will favour selling individual items at a lower prices.
Sainsburys today announced it would scrap the vast majority of multi-buy deals by August, with special offers on confectionary, crisps and other “unhealthy” snacks being phased out by March.
The prodnoses never will stop so the only solution is to tell them to fuck off in the first place.
Or that multi-person gallows we all keep hoping for.
