Pairings | Tesco
If you’re out last-minute shopping for wine this weekend it may help to know that Tesco currently has one of its 25% off deals if you buy 6 bottles - or 2 x 6 bottle cases if you’re buying online)
Tesco has raised the bar with its latest 25% off deal which applies if you buy just four bottles between now and November 25th, rather than the usual six (apart from online when you will still have to buy two 6 bottle cases.)
Tesco has one of its periodic 25% promotions at the moment. In store it applies to six or more bottles, including those on promotion and runs until Tuesday 21st April. It also applies to those wines that are available on the main Tesco shopping site www.tesco.com/groceries
Following my round-up of the white wines I like best from the current Tesco range here’s a selection of reds if you’re taking advantage of the current 25% off deal (if you buy 6 bottles or 2 six-bottle cases if you’re buying online)
As you may have already picked up, Tesco has 25% off most of its wine range until Tuesday (excluding fine wines) if you buy six bottles. Now I have major issues with some of Tesco’s offers as some of their initial prices are ridiculously over-inflated but the following are genuine bargains at the discounted price.
Tesco is the latest to offer a 25% discount off wine and champagne if you buy six bottles in store or 2 cases (12 bottles) online on 'qualifying cases', excluding fine wine. The deal runs until midnight on Sunday December 1st 2013. (Note that although this deal has expired Tesco frequently runs this type of offer.)
Tesco is the latest retailer to jump on the 25% off six bottles bandwagon though their promotion only lasts until Monday 4th. Note some of the wines are only available online (in cases of six) and that the offer doesn’t apply to the Fine Wine range or in Scotland.
The last weekend in November is becoming as big as the post Christmas sales with the added bonus that there’s some reason to take advantage of the offers rather than just nab bargains for the sake of it.
You can tell we’re already in the run-up to Christmas with supermarkets making a pitch for those who like to do their shopping early.
At just £5* and 11% this is the perfect wine for this cash-strapped, trying-to-be-a-bit-healthier time of year.
If you’re one of those who likes to take it to the wire when it comes to Easter food shopping - or are simply nipping out for some last-minute supplies here are 10 wines which are selling at a great price this weekend.
As some of you may have spotted I’ve just uploaded a couple of posts* with my recommended buys from Tesco which, like many supermarkets these days, has week-long promotions where it knocks 25% off the cost of six bottles.
