Some Tesco Offers

tescoirelandEarlier today, one of our readers criticised Tesco – now claiming to be “Ireland’s biggest discounter” for their sneaky price rises.

However, they have a few specials this week that are worthy of note.

I don’t wish to sound like the voice of the Skibeereen Eagle, but readers, if you notice that any of these prices are deceptive or misleading, please let us know:

  • Heinz Apple and Mango Breakfast – 128g – 3 for 2
  • Aquafresh Deep Clean Toothbrush – Buy one, get one free
  • Tesco Tail-on Prawns – 125g – Buy one, get one free
  • Tesco Green Seedless Grapes 500g Pack – Half Price (was €3.49, now €1.74)
  • Tesco Easy Peeler Clementines 1.4kg – Half Price (was €4.99, now €2.49)
  • Tesco Fresh Chicken Ex Large – 2100g – reduced from €8.49 to €5.99
  • Tesco Ham Fillet (min 2kg) – reduced from €15.69 to €12.69
  • Tesco Cranberry juice – 2 for €2.50 (€1.39 each)

I insert a caveat: I’ll need to check with Tesco that some of these offers are not only available if for online shoppers. I’ll try to let you know in the morning. In the meantime, you’ll find more offers here.

I’ll come clean – I don’t like their meat, or their fruit and veg, and I’m not so keen on many of their own-brand ready meals either.

But they’re perfectly fine and very competitive for Tesco yogurt and juice (their own brand non-concentrated apple juice is particularly good), staples such as pasta or rice, some household products, and non-Tesco branded goods, such as those you wouldn’t get in Aldi or Lidl.

But who cares what I think? What do you like (if anything) about Tesco, and what puts you right off?


  1. I was in Tesco Friday night and they had some good offers including 2 454g of Dairygold for €2.50, they’re 2 something each and buy one get one free on Actimels. There was also a white sliced pan for €1 (can’t remember the name sorry)

  2. i dont feel too well when i eat tesco jaffacakes

  3. The person who worte the above comment is an idiot. Please can it, and this, be removed.

  4. I agree with finbar the jaffa cakes do kinda make you feel sick after a while. john smith is just bitter. tesco has been getting some great stuff in recently in the biscuit department. choc chip cookies for 1 euro. thats the ticket.

  5. Hey Fin, can’t beat the real thing
    but when i’m on tour nothing beats a digestive!

  6. My tummie hurts too….just found the half pack o jaffas Fin didn’t eat in the press!
    Tesco you suck!

  7. Now that im working in Tesco, i do buy the own brand stuff but man let me tell y’all, when steps were “running tings” on the music scene, we were banging 14 packs of jaffa cakes a night, real talk.

    Miss them days like cwazy to be honest.

  8. The olympic rush just over.
    1 Gold
    But nothing compares to the golden jelly in a tesco jaffa!

  9. Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic however
    I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website like
    yours take a large amount of work? I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!
