[No Frills] YMMV Club House Pure Vanilla Extract 125ml $2.99 when price matching Food Basics

Food Basics has "Club House Extracts 43 -125ml selected varieties" on sale for $2.99. Pretty sure pure vanilla at $2.99 would only be the 43ml size. I price matched at No Frills to get the pure 125ml size. On page 5 of Food Basics flyer.

The Food Basics ad does not specify artificial, it only states CH Extracts 43mm -125mm. I bought 125ml pure for $2.99.

Safe bet FB is selling the 43ml pure at $2.99

Thanks, OP. I just PM'd the 125 ml pure vanilla at Carlaw and Gerrard in TO.

FYI - it required a manager override but neither the manager nor cashier looked too closely.

Seems like a scammy way to price match. I'll pass.

Not scammy, it's just taking advantage of a loophole. Too bad for No Frills that the ad doesn't specify what the "selected varieties " are.

No, this is the kind of stuff that ruins price matching for everyone. Walmart just got rid of price matching in the U.S. and Best Buy got rid of it in Canada.

No Frills' slogan is "Won't Be Beat", yet they deliberately adjust inventories to avoid having to price match. For example, this week Food Basics big deal on meat is $2.88/lb on lean ground beef family pack; My No Frills always carries family packs of lean ground beef, but not this week, nope they only have ground beef and pork combo. This stuff goes on every week at my No Frills, so I feel no guilt in taking advantage of a loophole in their PM policy-- item must match ad in name and size-- what I've posted follows their policy.

Two wrongs don't make a right.
