CHOCOLATE lovers are in for a tasty treat with massive 1kg bag of Lindt chocolate truffles available for just £17.
The offer is part of Amazon’s Bank Holiday sale, but the chocolates are only available at that price today.
The giant bags of chocolate have a recommended retail price of £21.49, and would have cost £19.65 on Amazon just a week ago.
That means you can make a saving of over 20 per cent.
If you bought the huge bags at their RRP it could actually be cheaper to buy lots of smaller boxes.
Lindt is currently selling two 100g boxes of the truffles for £2. That means you’d only have to spend £20 to get the same amount of sweets.

But today’s sale price is by far the cheapest way to get your hands on the chocs. You’ll make a saving of £3 compared to buying smaller boxes – 15 per cent.
If you’re wondering what on earth you might do with a kilogram of chocolate, Lindt says the bag is:
“[The] ideal size for blissful parties, glitzing up reception areas, as a gift or just for Lindor lovers.”
Is it worth paying for Amazon Prime?
AMAZON Prime costs £79 if you pay annually or £95.88 if you pay monthly.
Whether it’s worth having depends on how often you order from the retailer.
If you buy from Amazon a lot, delivery charges can soon add up.
But you still a lot of orders to make your money back.
For instance, £79 adds up to:
- 20 or more orders of clothes (£3.95 for one day delivery)
- 13 or 14 orders of media (£5.99 one day delivery)
- 10 orders of anything else (£7.99 one day delivery)
Of course, there are other benefits to Amazon Prime, such as Amazon Instant Video, the Kindle eBook Library and Prime Music.
You also get early access to Lightning Deals – Amazon’s time limited special offers.
If chocolate isn’t your thing, don’t worry, Amazon has hundreds of deals available as part of its week-long sales.
However, there’s just two days left so you’ll need to be quick to bag a bargain.
All Amazon’s offers can be found here and are sortable by interest.
How to find the best deals
BEFORE you buy anything, it’s important to make sure you’re getting a great deal.
- First go to Camel Camel Camel to see whether the offer is actually worth considering. The site tracks prices of Amazon goods so you can make sure anything isn’t regularly available for less money outside of the sales.
- If you’re buying chocolate or other groceries it’s worth having a look on MySupermarket.co.uk to see if there’s a better deal available elsewhere.
- Use your internet browser to search too. Websites like Argos or Ebay often beat Amazon’s best prices.
- Don’t forget that you can take out a free Amazon Prime trial to get free delivery. Make sure you cancel it within 30 days or you’ll have to pay full price.
