Heinz products, Iceland pricing scam.

Went into my local Iceland store today and noticed they've done a pricing scam which I've heard stores like Tesco's and Asda have done in the past.

Last week their Heinz tinned products were priced at 1. Today i noticed the price has gone up to 1.25 and the store has put an offer on 'Buy 3 for 3'. Iceland are well known for having many products at a 1 and being a regular at my local store and purchaser of Heinz products, they have been 1 for a good few years.

Re: Heinz products, Iceland pricing scam.

I used to get my shopping on line from Iceland but not any more.
A few weeks ago I got an email from them saying "Good News, 5 off your next order" but the catch was I had to spend over 50 to get it. A scam.
I am not a big eater and live on my own so my shopping bill is nowhere near 50. Even now I have to spend 35 to get free delivery. They say the charge depends how far you live from the store. I live about five miles from my nearest store.
I have had reason in the past to complain to their 'Customer Care Services' I think they should change their name to 'Customer don,t care Service'

Won't touch Heinz products now

Boycotting because they make wicked biscotti biscuits for 7yr old babies that are full of sugar. Really unethical.

A child that can walk, talk, and has been at school for at least 2 years is not a baby!

I agree they shouldn't have loads of sugar though.

Re: Heinz products, Iceland pricing scam.

Iceland do free delivery when you buy 25 worth, is that just in store?
I have been tempted but wondered if it would then be defrosted by the time it's delivered.
I will ask next time.

Re: Heinz products, Iceland pricing scam.

I have a home delivery from Iceland once a month. You have to spend a minimum of 25 to have your groceries delivered to your home, but it is a minimum spend of 35 to have it delivered free of charge. Anything between 25 and under 35 there is a 2 delivery fee.

Must admit, don't usually buy Heinz products from Iceland, tinned goods usually go on my weekly shop with either Sainsburys or Tesco, (depending what offers are on).

Any frozen goods are always still frozen when delivered.
I usually stock up with their Birds Eye Gastro range of Cod and Haddock, which were always "buy 2 for 5" when they were 4 each at all the other supermarkets. That was a good saving, but they have recently put the price up of each now 3.75 or "2 for 6" so don't buy as many. Plus their part-baked baguettes and strength 5 mature Cheddar Cheese. I don't buy much else from them. I just make sure I buy the above when running very low on them, to ensure I spend 35 or as near as possible to that, once a month.
