    Are all the coupons the same? The one I got has a barcode ending in 201111.

      They have "unique codes", but whether or not the checkout staff cares if you use the same printout is another question. Anyway PaknSave Sylvia Park have them for $6 a tub. Or go to PaknSave Albany for $3.45 a tub if you don't mind just having Caramel & Toasted Coconut flavoured ice cream.

      Protip: You can search individual stores for stock and price of a particular item on the PaknSave online ordering site. Search for a product and then flick through different stores at the search results page.

        Yep. They shouldn't be allowed to do that. All branches of the chain should have the same prices and the same products (some supermarket branch do also stock items others in the chain don't).

        They shouldn't be able to have multiple brandings under the same parent company - for example, Pakn'Save / New World / etc. should all have one name, one set of products, and the same prices since they're allowed and run by the same company. Having different branding gives a false illusion of consumer choice and "competitive" pricing.

          What an absolutely absurd idea! If Paknsave and New World were forced to have the same prices, you'd have to pay more for everything…

          Paknsave absolutely competes with New World. Not to the same degree as it does with Countdown granted, but to suggest that it would be better if they didn't compete at all is just ridiculous.

          •  

            @Steven89: They should either have to rebrand them all to one name or sell off the brands to other owners. That's the only way you get any real competition in pricing (or at least as close as you'll ever get, which is usually just price matching).

            The old Foodtown stores were (eventually) rebranded to be Countdown a little while after the two companies become owned by the same parent company … although technically they should really be called Woolworths, since that's the Australian name for the same company's stores and why Countdown uses the "W" logo.

            It's the same with the petrol companies - there are many different brands, but some of them are actually owned by the same parent companies (Z and Caltex for example).

            •  

              @BuzzBumble: The brands ain't the problem. The real problem is that we don't have enough competition between Foodstuffs and Progressive Enterprises (They're now called Woolwolths NZ). People often forget that NZ has some of the highest grocery prices in the World.

              We need the hard discounters like Aldi and Lidl in NZ, they both sell pretty much only private label products at rock-bottom prices. Well At least Costco is coming to town.

              •  

                @Avantime: The different brandings means too many people think there is more competition than there really is. If the companies were each forced to use only one brand name each, then people would realise just how limited the choice actually is.

                Costco isn't really going to make any real difference since they are planning to have a very limited range of products (partly due to being more of a bulk retailer) as well as only one location (at least to begin with).

                New Zealand prices for most things are simply ridiculous. :o(
                (Including by the landlords who rent the buildings out!)

                Another part of the issue is Progressive is simply very greedy. For years they kept blocking a Pack n' Save being built quite a way from the nearest Foodtown branch, and despite towards the end actually having two branches in the same shopping mall after taking over Countdown. They're now trying to block another Pack n' Save (or is it New World) being built somewhere else.

              @BuzzBumble: Care to provide any evidence whatsoever to your absurd claim that reducing the number of brands increases competition?

              Paknsave is cheaper than New World, forcing them to be the same price will make prices rise….

              •  

                @Steven89: I never ever said "reducing the number of brands reduces competition".

                I said having multiple brands under the same parent company creates a false illusion of competition.

                •  

                  @BuzzBumble: So you don't think that reducing the number of brands will increase competition? Then why on Earth are you demanding they be forced to do so? If it's literally just because you don't like the idea of it seeming like there is more competition than there is then that's even crazier than I first thought!

                  Paknsave competes with New World. Your plan will result in me, and a million others, having to pay more for groceries - why on Earth would you expect people to support it?

                    @Steven89: I never said that "reducing the number of brands will increase competition" either. :o\

                    I said: "They should either have to rebrand them all to one name or sell off the brands to other owners."

                    Multiple brands owned by the same parent companies does not and can not ever create a truly competitive environment. No parent company is ever going to run one brand as "the cheapest" / "the best" at the expense of their other brand.

                    All Foodtown branches were actually rebranded to be Countdown after Progressive Enterprises took over Countdown.

                      @BuzzBumble: You did, but that's not what I said anyway… I said if that's NOT what you think will happen, why do you think there's any benefit to doing this insane plan of yours?

                      Paknsave IS ran as the cheapest supermarket in competition to New World - and it IS the cheapest supermarket. If they were given the choice to rebrand or sell off Paknsave, they would obviously rebrand. Now what?

                      Plus of course, the reason why pricing varies between New World and Paknsave stores is because they are individually owned. They therefore respond to competition in their local areas, which seems to be exactly what you want them to be doing?

                      •  

                        @Steven89: I don't want say that his plan is insane but definitely not realistic unfortunate .
                        Paknsave is definitely the cheapest (no one will argue on that) but they both operated under foodstuff, just like New World. That means that they buy most of there stuff under the same supplier (so again, from foodstuff).
                        So down the line both grocery stores basically pay the same price for each item (Paknsave will pay a little less when they buy big amounts).
                        In the end all stores will decide the price they sell it for but since NW and Paknsave almost pay the same price for each item, it leaves them with a small amount to play with (because you don't want to sell items without making enough profit of course).

                        NZ need more grocery stores that have there own suppliers because down the line; it's not the grocery store that decided what you pay, but mostly the supplier. And 2 suppliers isn't enough to make fare prices in NZ.

        I find it really annoying to have to switch through stores. If only someone had lists of all the cheapest irrespective of store (for price beat or matches)

        •  

          The problem for general groceries is as above - even different branches of the same supermarket brand can have different prices as well as their own stocked and sale items, plus one-day sales, etc. They also have a tendency to advertise items that aren't even on their shelves yet or vice versa advertise items as "new" which have been on shelves for a little while already.

            @BuzzBumble: I always price beat cat litter at mitre ten using paknsaves cheapest price.
            I just have to ensure that I use the correct store online.

              @Foodie: I price beat the Sistema containers at Warehouse whenever I need them. Countdown always has lower sale prices and their stores never have much stock on hand.

            •  

              @Foodie: Some branches aren't available to be chosen on the website - presumably they don't do online orders at those particular branches. Since each branch has their own stock and pricing, you might find things cheaper at one of the "offline" stores.

    How good is the icecream? Is it gourmet quality or just gourmet prices?
