After shopping, you wait at the checkout where a display announces a special offer on a branded two-litre bottle of lemonade and lime. The offer is a BOGOF 'buy one, get one free', the price is £2 a bottle, and without thinking you put two in your basket. However, at the till you are embarrassed when the total comes to exactly £48. What is your best option?
Whilst taking out and returning two bottles would allow you to buy the shop, it won't include any drink. Putting two extra bottles in the basket gives you a lower balance and four bottles of pop as the total takes the price to £50 which then triggers the £5 vouchers off today’s shop, therefore reducing the bill from £50 to £45 and under your budget.
