tHANKS TO MSE

If you go to Sainsburys pick up the free easy day mag x7 .I found them at the front of the store, in it is a coupon for ?1.50 of a 4 pack of premium bavaria lager which cost ?3. Buy 7 and use 7 coupons. total comes to ?10.50 and then generates a ?10 price promise voucher.

There is also a shandy ?1 MOC. May try 5 of these tomorrow with ?5 other & see if it compares to Asda. If so think these will also be free!

I got quite a few of lager and shandy today. In doing so I have realised that the lager coupon scans when the shandy is purchased and the shandy coupon scans when the lager is purchased ie they both scan on both products

I also used 3 of the 50p off Cravendale milk vouchers from the same magazine when buying 2 cartons of milk.

What I was unable to work out was whether the coupons scannced without buying any of the products at all

zorber
16th July 2012, 17:51
You can also scan more than 1 coupon for each product eg 2x shandy will scan on just one item purchased

16th July 2012, 18:36
Managed another 6 packs beer today. Not bad. All over tomorrow as price back up in Tecso - unless it is extended as they have not sold many why buy it half price when you can get it free?.

I can't imagine that Sains would have that would they ? I just managed to get the one lot . there was JUST 7 packs on the shelf. The girl on the till really scrutinised these . I was very pleased with my one lot though. I want to use 5 now for this Shandy but I cannot go in until Wed so I am hoping for a similar deal. just waiting for the new price up on Tes website ?

Well done to those that got these. I tried two big stores (no big diversion to either), local store had no mags and gaps on the shelves, tonight was passing another big store 15 miles away and no mags and no signs of Bavaria lager or shandy on the shelves at all. I was happy as had just picked up mega ebay buys which saved me ?50 or more, and got some half price beer kits in Wilko's this morning so all was good today anyway :) Would have just been a bit of a bonus!

Tescos offer now extended to 14/8/12 according to website which is when the coupons are valid till.

Also now showing on Asda website as ?1.50 for larger and ?1 for shandy but not sure how long for ..... so still time to stock up if you can find the mags!

Dominic
17th July 2012, 13:45
What is the date on the mags? Just wondering if they will come back in? Thanks for the update by the way :)

17th July 2012, 14:07
Just says issue 11 on the front on the front of the mag.
There is a date on page 3 which I think refers to the mag, 4.07.12 - 14.08.12

I got one lot of the beers only. I didn't bother with the Shandy but if the offer is still on tomorrow I will go to get the 5 shandy. These could come in very handy for the heat wave.???:D:D

Didn`t work for me last night!!

Bought 7 packs of larger for ?3 each = ?21
gave in 7 x ?1.50 coupons and ?10 brand match coupon from previous day
plus 50p cash as before expecting to get another ?10 till spit back

BUT price match came out "your branded shop was the same price here today"

Now I didn`t want to pay for my lager or I`d have bought it at tesco where I`d been earlier to check the price and it was definitely on sale there for ?1.50, so I went to customer service to query how brand match checked the prices and she told me it was compared to tescos and asda online prices which I told her I`d seen for myself and they were ?1.50. So she offered to refund me the money and as I`d used coupons gave me a gift card for ?21.

More than happy with that cos I`ll use that to buy wine for me rather than beer for him!!!


Not sure if its working again today as it`s now comparing again on mysupermarket which it wasn`t doing yesterday.

It worked for me this morning - I bought 6 plus some other bits to get it just over ?20 and I got back a brand match coupon for ?9.

swissshopper
19th July 2012, 18:48
I'm sure when Sainsburys started doing this Brand Match you had to spend ?20 and buy 8 or more items. I've searched their website and can see no mention of it anywhere, and it doesn't mention it on the leaflet they have in store either.

I got in a muddle earlier this week, which resulted in me returning all my purchases, and rebuying them. In doing this I only ended up rebuying 7 items and I did't get the Brand Match voucher which I was expecting. I put it down to the fact that although I'd spent over the ?20, there were only 7 items in my list - just a thought

elainemn
19th July 2012, 19:46
8 items is Asda not sainsburys. It did not work yesterday due to offer change at tesco & they thought it was full price again. not sure if working again today. You just need over ?20 to get brand match.

swissshopper
19th July 2012, 19:58
Thanks for that, I have been buying 7 packs of the lager and a carrot each time I've got some!

Its also necessary to spend ?20 in Sainsburys, but no need to buy 8 items.

Are you all still finding the mags then?! I have admittedly only tried two stores but no mags to be found anywhere.

Poundsinbucks
22nd July 2012, 13:44
Mags in my store were first of all on every checkout, they have long gone now. But I found some more mags tucked in with those free recipe cards on a stand near the entrance, easily missed!

I belive it stopped working briefly as the offer finished Friday, but the offer was then extended and it therefore started working again the next day. It worked for me this morning.

Worked for me yesterday, only bought the lager shandy as DS decided he prefers this to the lager, bought 4 packs and a few other items that I knew either wouldnt compare or would be the same price to bring over the ?20. I used 4 x ?1 mocs, a ?5.22 pricematch from the other days and got ?8.06 back so something else must have been different as I was expecting ?8.00, so more free shandy :D

Sainsburys have reduced the price of the shandy to ?1.49 a pack. It's still only ?1 in Asda. We should still get 49p back from the Brand Check so after using the ?1 moc from the magazine it should still work out free, but we will have to up the quanties and the other stuff that we buy to hit the ?20

TB4100 On MSE they were saying to someone in your position that you can check your Sainsburys receipt somewhere on line. I cant remember the details off hand. Anyway, this happened to someone else and when checked on line it said along the lines of "you used a till which isn't part of Brand Match". ? although no one could work out why that till wouldnt be included.

Went to my local yesterday and no mags so went to another one today as I was passing and magazines galore

Only 5 packs of the lager so made it up to ?20 and got ?7.50 back - bought the shandy as it is 49P with the voucher - be good in the hot weather

Went to my local and get 7 packs of lager with ?10 back - also bought some jeans as the first shop generated a ?8 off ?40 spend so used that and the ?7.50 off- oo happy days

Went to 2 different stores in a local town today, and in both of them messages came up on the cashier's screen that only 1 coupon could be used in a transaction. I did point out that the coupon said 1 per product purchased, and after checking with a supervisor on each occasion I was allowed to use 1 against each pack I'd bought. Has any one else experienced this today?

holliemon
26th July 2012, 19:28
Yes I did in both shops -I just asked her to call supervisor over to see if they could go through in one shop - I told her if I bought each item separately she would have some long queues - also I wanted my price check voucher lol

so you need to spend ?20 in sainsburys for it to brand match?
does the ?20 have to be made up entirely of food or can it be clothing/household items ect?

swissshopper
31st July 2012, 07:11
You do need to spend ?20 for the Brand Match, but it doesn't all have to be on food. Yesterday I got 3 lager @ ?3 each and a t-shirt for ?12 and got a voucher back for ?4.50

Just be prepared for the till rejecting the second ?1.50 off voucher. The last couple of days I've found it easier to use the SS tills, the supervisors must be used to having to overide vouchers, so just add up the totals and put one amount through

Poundsinbucks
31st July 2012, 15:22
Used last of my coupons today. Had one for the lager which is full price again now and 8 for the shandy which is on offer for ?1.49, so 49p after coupon. Only generated a BrandMatch of ?2.xx. So not a brilliant deal like before but still an ok deal :D.

I just got 7 of the lagers, 7 of the coupons, one scanned and the girl just added up the others and put through the one amount, through SS till, and it still generated a brand match of ?10.
