Coles and their annoying specials

Best Blogger Tips

Tuesday 18 October 2011

Is it just me or does anyone else hate the way Coles puts things on special only if you buy 2 or 5 or 10 of something.

Why can't the one item just be on special?

It is even more worse when it is something that you would not normally buy more than one of (and perhaps not even one), such as a 10 litre tub of mayonnaise, or a 30 pack of coke, or a 500 pack of nappies.

I am usually torn between wanting to buy the special item, but not wanting to condone this ridiculous practice.

Coles, if you are listening, stop this - it is annoying

I have the same issues when I go shopping. It's a lot easier to make an appropriate decision now that they have to put the price per 100g etc. for comparison. I used to spend hours doing the groceries because I'd be there with a pen and paper calculating all my options.

"More worse?" Baby eat your vocabulary?

I think the original sentence read "It is even more annoying when it ..."

At the last moment I changed the annoying to worse, but forgot to edit the "more". Apologies to those astute grammarians out there - it couldn't get more worse than that could it?
