It is in fact that time again. One of the two principal supermarkets in Switzerland (yes there are only 2 chains Coop and Migros) have another legendary special offer.
I have already talked about the Coop Superpoints scheme
They have an additional regular scheme where you complete cards with labels. Once a card is full you can buy some goods at a special price.
The current offer is pots and pans. You get one stamp per 10 francs spend, so you see that you need to spend 300 CHF to complete a card.
There are a few disclaimers and conditions
Right now it is Fissler pots and pans. Being a sceptic I checked. Yes these goods are a fraction of the price that you can buy them in their native Germany or even England. Indeed a bargain.
So what is about to happen?
- Coop will indeed lure many buyers into their supermarkets, buyers want those pots and pans at the super cheap prices
- I predict they will make a lot of sales. Fissler will be pretty happy
- They did this about 2 years ago too. What happened then?
- Coop single handily decimated the new Pots and Pans market for about 6 months. After their offer nobody needed any pots or pans for some time.
I predict this will happen again, so condolences to other manufacturers. You are basically screwed.
Fissler - Perfect every time
