The current ads from M&S comparing their prices for their Wise Buys budget range with those for Waitrose Essentials are causing some mirth amongst those who really know a bargain.

Such types know that Waitrose is the most expensive supermarket we have, and that one recent comparison of M&S and Waitrose budget baked beans, both at 49pence for a 420g tin was somewhat undermined by the deal running at Asda where 4 x 415g tins of the Heinz variety were walking out of the store for £1, or 25pence a tin.

So much for the M&S claim to be “great value for money”
