An Australian shopper has ignited a heated debate online after snapping up seven marked down roast chickens from Woolworths.

The Sydney mum flaunted her bargain haul in which she nabbed the chooks for just $4.40 down from $11 in a post to popular Facebook group Markdown Addicts Australia. 

‘No I didn’t buy them all. Yes I left some for others. Yes we eat a lot of chicken. No it won’t go to waste,’ she wrote in the post referencing previous arguments in the group where people have accused shoppers of being ‘rude’ for ‘hogging’ discounted food.

The bargain hunter’s post drew in hundreds of likes and dozens of comments from fellow shoppers saying she shouldn’t have to justify her haul. 

‘Who cares if you did buy them all! You’re entitled to buy whatever you want. I would have bought a few, good score,’ one mum wrote.

‘When I come across meat cheap I usually buy the lot. I don’t care what people think. I’m thinking ahead for my family, if they aren’t sold they get thrown out so great score no need to justify it to anyone as your money is as good as anyone else’s,’ a second commented.

Another shopper shared her experience of getting into an argument with a woman who disagreed with her taking more than one marked down chicken.   

‘I nearly got into a chicken fight with a lady over getting two chickens on sale ($3.34 each) I brought one for my elderly neighbour who had a flu,’ she recalled.

Is it greedy or rude to empty a supermarket shelf of discounted products?

‘She told me it’s rude to take more than one and that I was now making her kids starve for tea. When I told her to back the f*** up she demanded the manager take the chicken away from me – he didn’t.’ 

The chicken-lover’s post comes just weeks after another group member was dubbed ‘selfish’ and ‘greedy’ for her huge markdown haul of heavily discounted fish.

The woman bought ‘every single packet’ of premium salmon and trout that had been marked down from $11 to just $1.10.

She posted an image of her trolley filled with the fish packets to the group and attracted a slew comments with many jumping to her defense.    

‘Imagine being that selfish, how embarrassing,’ one woman commented while another wrote: ‘Certainly some greedy people around these days’. 

‘Yes good price, but wouldn’t it be nice to leave some for someone else,’ a third said.

‘Couldn’t agree more. Greed seems to take over. Putting a few packets back could’ve fed another family for the night but no one thinks of others these days,’ another responded.

Other shoppers applauded the money-saving mum for her impressive haul with some warning to check the quality before cooking and questioning whether the fish can even be frozen.

‘Love a shelf clearer as you saved that department from having to put it down as dumped when no one else’s buys it. Love your work,’ one shopper said.  

‘Excellent score, better eaten than in landfill. Freeze that and eat happy for days,’ a second replied.  

‘I only ever bought salmon once when it was marked down and when I opened it, it was rotten. Too close to use by date for my liking, especially fish,’ another explained.

‘Be careful it may not be able to be frozen, need to read the packaging,’ one shopper suggested.
