Tesco 'half price' offer looks like a price rise

There are red faces at Tesco this morning, after a report of one 'half price' deal, which seemed to be more expensive than the full price. The deal in question was for a box of Thorntons chocolates with a large Half Price sign. The smaller print, however, showed the price had increased by 35p.

It's not the first time there has been a pricing mistake - but fortunately sometimes it works in our favour.
