I never believed below cost selling to be an issue until I saw these tonight. If you're having a bank holiday party it's a bargain! The promotion is actually 2 cases of Miller (20 bottles) or Corona (12 bottles) or mix & match the two. €25 is certainly a good deal.

They are also running their 25% off if you buy 6 bottles of wine promotion at the moment, I love that it applies to their half price wines too. I got €72 worth for €27! I think a certain Labour Minister would not be too impressed ;)

I think a lot of the hard working, tax paying, independent off-licence owners, might not be too impressed either. I'm sure they would gladly sell the same below cost and write it off against their tax bill, if they too could screw their customers on the rest of the items in their trolley.

On the wine 25% off Sale, they were selling Yellow Tail at €7 per bottle in a previous non 25% off sale. I see that it is €8 per bottle in the 25% off sale. Still a saving but not as big a saving as you think.

25% off plus 25% off if you buy 6 bottles.

That's competition for ya.
By the way, they don't write anything off against their tax bill. Businesses pay tax on their profit, that's all.

ALDI wine is €4 . . .

Not really comparing like with like there! With a €4 bottle of wine, taking excise and VAT off the selling price, means the supermarket is getting €1.30 for that bottle of wine. From this, they take their mark-up, then there are the transportation costs, the costs of the bottle, etc.. What you're left with is wine that costs a few cents to produce.

That can only be true for mass produced wines coming from high-yield vines. Very rarely, if ever are they what many would consider good.

The point I was trying to make was that the price of Yellow tail is normally reduced to €7.
In this particular sale it has only been reduced to €8.

If you purchase just one bottle you are actually paying more than previous sales. So you really have to purchase the 6 bottles.

I'm a Millers fan myself but have lately changed to Aldi's St Etienne which is made in Belgium. It is very drinkable and cost me 10.95 for 12 cans.My husband likes it too and he is a Guinnessocrat.
