Some followers voiced frustration with Coles ‘running out of pork’ on some orders and not replacing it with similar items. But the group’s savvy shoppers advise to always tick the ‘Yes to subsitutes’ preference while ordering and stand up for your rights.
Says one follower: ‘Call the customer care team and tell them. They have to honour it if you selected yes to substitutes and they had roasts in store.’
Good advice! So jump online and see if you can bag a huge pork haul. And as always, make sure you’re following Markdown Addicts Australia on Facebook for all your bargain hunting tips!
