Cheaper By The Dozen

Amazon has entered the competitive online grocery market. This could prove somewhat troublesome as they are sourcing products from third parties-not ideal if you want all your goods delivered together. As you usually do when ordering groceries.

However, what really caught my eye was the fact that they are now selling booze. A rather ragbag collection of beer, wine and spirits. Everything from Purple Moose Glaslyn Ale to Jagermeister Herb Liqueur. But the pricing plan needs some watching.

A bottle of the said Jagermeister will set you back £20.75+£5.99 for postage. Ok. However, if you just fancy a bottle of Sam Smiths Organic Best Ale, it will set you back £7.30. And that’s with free p+p. Which, unless you want to show off to the neighbours/life partner/yourself by having one bottle of beer delivered, is an expensive way of imbibing.

Look a little closer, though, and you will see Bourdaire-Gallois Brut Champagne Jeroboam 1.5l (Tandleman’s favourite, btw) for £112.99 plus only £3 for p+p. The lesson seems obvious: if you’re going to have it, have it large.

I like to think I have it large. I'm not asking for feedback though, just in case.
