Tesco New Price Drop – win £50 voucher

March 7, 2012

My clever friends at Tesco have found a way to help all of us struggling with the price of even basic food these days. I read an article in the Observer over the weekend, for example, saying the price of eggs is going to go up by 70 per cent over the next few weeks. Yikes! That’s serious news, in a house mostly fuelled by egg-laden cupcakes.

Tesco started its Big Price Drop last year but is now – ta-da – introducing the New Price Drop – where, basically, YOU get a chance to nominate the food you’d like to see reduced in price yourself. Finally, the supermarkets have cottoned on to the fact that it’s mostly mothers who do the shopping, so they have a better idea than anyone of what’s actually needed in the nation’s storecupboards. So simple, so clever – so pop over to the Tesco Facebook page , click the ‘vote’ button, and help me to reduce the price of eggs get your own special favourite (or at least the category it’s in, like vegetables, yogurt or, ahem, chocolate) knocked down in price.

To make things more interesting, the Tesco folk are offering a delicious £50 Tesco voucher to one of my lovely band of (UK resident) readers. That’s a big basket of shopping all paid for, courtesy of good old Teskies. All you need to do is cast your Facebook vote, then come back here and tell me which product you’ve gone for. Peasy! I’ll pick a name out of my special shopping hat. Get voting and good luck x

    I didn’t know that eggs were going to get more expensive, I’ll have to speak nice to my neighbour about buying a few more of her chicken’s eggs a week. I voted for Cat food because I swear in a few more months that is all I’m going to be able to afford to buy. Catfood pie anyone?

      Catfood’s hugely expensive too, though, isn’t it? I’m not sure I can run to that for six people plus two actual cats ….. not sure what that leaves though, maybe the mice and worms the cats sometimes bring in? Oh dear …..

      Cheese is massively expensive, isn’t it? I only ever really eat Cheddar but TL is a real cheesaholic and spends tons on it!

    I voted for Laundry Products in West Yorkshire because with 2 small children in the house I spend a fortune on washing stuff. If milk or cereals had been on the list I would have voted for those though, I can’t believe a box of ‘normal’ cereal is £2.50!

      Blimmin laundry stuff – why is it so expensive when it just goes down the drain? Last year I always got it from Lidl as it had won some Good Housekeeping award but it seems to have lost that now so I’ve reverted to the very expensive lavender flavour stuff – and don’t even get me started on cereal!

    I also voted for Cheese I hate buying cheese as it takes so much of our food budget even the tesco value cheese is expensive.

      Yes, cheese is about as expensive as smoked salmon these days – what’s going on?! All our cows will be wearing tiaras in the milking sheds …..
