[Fresh Co] Janes 1.2kg Chicken Nuggets/Strips/Burgers/Popcorn $2.99

Freshco has the Janes Chicken Nuggets/Strips/Burgers/Popcorn on sale for $6.99 this week. On top of that there is a $4 off coupon inside the box.

Buy the first box at $6.99, and every subsequent box purchased is only $2.99 (with use of the coupon).

This product isn't everyone's cup of tea.

Tru dat. Unless you drink chicken broth in a tea cup.
Buy the first box, use coupon for second one then return first unopened box you paid full price for.

The coupon is only good for one box right. So you can't buy one at 6.99 and then use the coupon on 5 other boxes.

The boxes (marked with the coupons) have only one coupon inside and it's good for $4 off one product. But if the subsequent boxes you get are marked with coupons as well then you can keep using the coupons for the next box.

Just keep in mind that although you're returning that unopened box of chicken innocently thinking they'll just put it back and resell (which normally happens with non food items) it'll most likely end up in the trash.

The coupon is printed on the inside on the box. He'd have to return the open product with a square cut out where the coupon was lol..

No, the last box you buy you don't use the coupon and return it using the receipt of the first box you initially bought.

I'm normally down for this tactic cause it's the rfd way but not when it comes to food items because they don't resell it even if unopened, they throw it out for liability reasons and who wants to buy returned food, you don't know what that person did to it or even stored it properly.

Ahhh, you are correct. Regardless of how many boxes you end up buying, you'll have one in the end that doesn't need to be opened. Just like you I wouldn't do this either but it's definitely an option!

not to long ago got chicken fingers and a black piece about half the size

janes is a slurry of purportedly white meat and chicken skin...never did find out the ratio of white meat to chicken skin

and yes i did report it to the food inspection agency,they actually showed up and presented their badge
they picked up the product. in a styrofoam cooler with no ice. a well worn cooler..possibly contaminated with other product that had been kept there prior as well

I remember you posting about this before. Did they ever tell you anything else afterwards?

yes
there was a response that was concocted. i called the person out and they admitted they never spoke wit the food inspector at the processing facility and was promised they would do so.

i'm surmising they just tossed the sample and never did a necropsy ,tissue sampling or any other medical lab testing

it was kinda yeah, you caught us making up a story and yes we'll see if we can get the person who looks after that line come up with their best guess

and that's where it ended

You're saying we should hang out by the compactor, and get them for free after returning them ?

pc is much better for the batter. You will lose easily 1/3 of the piece if you removed the batter.

Sure if you want free food, dumpster diving at grocery stores is a thing, I hear you can find some goodies and if you need to do something so grimy to save $4 it wouldn't be such a bad idea LOL :)

Another scenario is that the person doing the return gives you a look as if you've done something bad when returning perfectly good food for no reason i.e expired/rotten etc.. (happened to me so now I know why as I've never returned food before that incident and always just assumed they would put it back and resell it like other stuff)

I took the hit for you, no thanks necessary

I don't believe grocery stores give refund on food products because of fear of tempering.
