Asda price glitch means shoppers can get 24 KitKat Chunky bars for just 70pJanuary 22, 2019
Chocoholics are now clearing space in their cupboards, with some ordering dozens of the multi-packs online to take advantage of the error listing.
Asda's website lists 24 packs of KitKat Chunky Duo bars – which have two Chunky bars in a packet – for just 70p at the moment.
That means each 64g bar will cost you just 3p each.
A normal KitKat Chunky bar costs 60p at the supermarket – so it's a huge saving.
It's only a matter of time before Asda realises the error though, so you might want to head to the website as soon as you can.
Understandably, the pricing error has whipped chocolate lovers into a frenzy online.
It was first spotted by bargain hunters on hotukdeals.com and some said they've ordered up to 30 packs of 24.
A few have said that the website now shows the items being out of stock for them.
But others have been luckier and are still able to order the bars because it depends how much of the product your local store has left.
A word of warning though: there's a strong chance Asda might not honour the price by the time your shopping is delivered.
Your rights if something is advertised at the wrong price
Buying in a shop
Your legal rights in a shop will depend on whether you’ve paid for the item yet or not.
If you haven’t bought it yet – If you take an item to the till and are told the price on the tag or label is a mistake, you don’t have a right to buy the item at the lower price. You could still try asking the seller to honour the price.
It’s the same if you see an item advertised anywhere for a lower price than the one on the price tag.
If you’ve already bought it – If the shop sold you an item at a lower cost than they meant to, you don’t have to give it back – they’re only legally entitled to ask you for more money if you had talked about the price (eg £100) and they ended up charging you much less instead (eg £10).
If you realise you’ve paid more for an item than it was advertised for at the time, ask for the shop to refund the difference between what you paid and what was advertised.
Keep any evidence of the mistake, if you can – for example, you could take a photo of the advert in the shop window.
Your legal rights depend on something fairly tricky in the law: whether or not you have a ‘contract’.
Depending on the company’s terms and conditions, you’ll have legal rights (and a contract) either once you’ve paid for the item or once they’ve sent it to you.
You’ll need to find the company’s terms and conditions to find out where you stand.
Contact the Citizens Advice consumer helpline if you need help. It may be too tricky to work out yourself.
If you have a contract, the company can’t usually cancel your order, even if they realise they’ve sold you something at the wrong price.
They’ll only be able to cancel it if it was a genuine and honest mistake on their part that you should’ve noticed.
If you don’t have a contract and someone realises they’ve told you the wrong price, they can cancel your order.
When pricing malfunctions occur, retailers often cancel outstanding orders if they haven't been dispatched yet.
If you are still able to order the treats at the error price, then remember that Asda has a minimum basket spend of £25 for online click and collect and delivery orders.
KitKat Chunky Duo bars contain 186 calories per half bar and 18.4g of sugar.
Adults are advised to only have 30g of added sugar a day, while women should have 2,000 calories and men should have up to 2,500, according to the NHS.
KitKat is selling an Easter egg this year made with naturally pink ruby chocolate.
And Mars is now selling a Bounty Easter egg with coconut bits inside the shell.
Meanwhile, Iceland is currently selling Terry's Chocolate Orange treats for just 50p.
