Every now and then Colruyt offers discounts upon discounts. It happens when both they and the competition have a promotion on the same product. Although there is no logic behind it. Sometimes they do it, other times they don’t. But now it is price for Greek yogurt from the Oikos brand. They give a 33.34 percent discount from three pieces. But there is a promotion at Albert Heijn 2 plus 3 free or sixty percent discount on five pieces. And they also follow that action. The result of the combination ensures incredibly low prices. Because if you buy one pack of natural yoghurt with four jars of 115 grams, you pay 2.69 euros. If you buy five of the same packs, you get double the discount and only pay 2.14 euros. Or how five pieces are cheaper than one piece. Then of course you get a lot of yogurt at home, but if the neighbors also like it, you can make a very cheap group purchase of Greek yogurt.

Please note, it is best to check their app again in advance discount on discount still applies or also applies in your store. Because sometimes they disappear like snow in the sun. Like the one on Lenor’s fabric softener. On Wednesday, through a combination of two promotions, you paid barely 3.46 cents per wash when purchasing four bottles Lenor La Collection Sea Breeze. Which was unprecedentedly little, last year the unit price for that fabric softener never went below five cents. Although the beautiful song did not last too long, on Wednesday evening the price was already slightly higher, namely 4.47 cents per wash. Although that is still a very nice prize that is worth taking.

Shrinkflation

At Albert Heijn this week it is the Giant Free Week with numerous products that you get for free when you purchase one or more pieces. This way you get two free tiger loaves when you buy one. A strong action that the bakers will not be happy with. 2.49 euros for three loaves of bread is not money. But their action also reveals that Albert Heijn is shrinking. In September 2023 they had a similar promotion with the same tiger bread. The small print then stated that one such loaf weighed 800 grams and the normal price was 2.49. Now the normal price is still 2.49 euros, but the small print states that one loaf weighs 700 grams. Or how the bread has shrunk, but not the price.

Math lesson

Finally, a lesson in arithmetic. It’s exactly as if they made it happen, but in various brochures this week there are discounts a la 1 plus 2 free, 2 plus 3 free, 4 plus 1 free,… You have to use your calculator to know whether that is interesting or not. Therefore, here is a handy list. The least interesting discount is at the top, for the best deal you have to read down to the bottom:

4 plus 1: 20 percent discount

3 plus 1 or 6 plus 2: 25 percent discount

2 plus 1: 33.34 percent discount

3 plus 2: 40 percent discount

1 plus 1: 50 percent discount

2 plus 3: 60 percent discount

1 plus 2: 66.66 percent discount

1 plus 3: 75 percent discount
