So instead of a walkers 6 pack costing £1 as they were a couple of weeks ago, they now cost £1.50. What's the odds they will soon be hiked once more to £2?

Tesco Crisis - BBC Investigation Reveals Customers Being Short Changed Due to Staff Cuts / ConsumerWatch / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

BBC Insight programme to be broadcast tonight at 7.30pm will reveal that Tesco customers are being short changed by promotions that have expired but are still being advertised on the shelves thus when customers for instance 'buy 1 get 1 free', instead end up paying double the expected price in most Tesco stores. As a Tesco shopper I have long since been aware of this issue which is why I always check the date that the offer replies to. Though this tends to be in small print so can be difficult to see with ageing eyesight. Also I have witnessed the SAME phenomena whilst shopping at Morrisons and Asda, though not on the same scale of Tesco. Still it does require the dates of every offer to be checked.

Amazon UK Chaotic Delivery Tracking System, Customers Should Expect Early Deliveries / ConsumerWatch / Amazon

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Like many online buyers, I too regularly use amazon to shop for large and small items, nothing beats the convenience of arm chair shopping at any time of the day, that and added buyer protections offered that one is more likely to get what one is actually ordering against Ebay purchases that are more than likely to disappoint.

However, as many if not most regular amazon buyers are likely already aware of that there is a huge flaw in amazons shopping experience and that is in the reliability of their delivery tracking system which just does not WORK! For as long as at least for a year, Amazon routinely fails to deliver in line with that which it's delivery tracking service states to expect delivery on which tends to result in failed deliveries and further delays and customer frustration.
