 In Morrisons supermarket the other day, I noticed the multi buy price of small packs of fresh berries had changed. 

Normally, when on offer, they are 2 for £3 making each pack £1.50. Buying 2 of them individually when not on offer, would cost £4.

Their new offer is 3 for £5, making each pack. Buying 3 of them individually when not on offer, would cost £6.

Looks good at first glance until you realise each pack is actually costing you 16p more. So if you go with the offer each week, it would cost you nearly an extra £25 a year. Not huge but times that by their millions of customers and it is huge.

However, if you don’t take advantage of the offer, and buy your usual two packs a week at £2, you are still losing and they are gaining. Crafty beggars.

I wonder if the farmers are getting any of that!
