Same as morrisons, waiting for the reply to the brand email but the liklihood is it will be standard again this year.
The only possible change could be going back to tnt (they sold it in 2012) but this is highly doubtful.

Maybe by now they will have the info. If they don't i'll try again in a week or two and tell them the info will be posted here. that could loosen their tongue :)

Whatever they sell this year, i hope they do their free pack offer again! I know it's not the best pyro around but you can usually get a decent amount for what you spend.

Last year i got a small selection box, a pack of 4 shot tubes, a small missile cake and the free pack for £15

The free offer is good, i will definitely consider sainsburys if they do the offer again.

The free pack is always one of my favs just waiting to see if its printed every year, all part of the excitment to bonfire night haha!

Yep it is usually good though! I got two packs of the shot tubes and the little selection box last year and got the free pack. The shot tubes are quite good for the money, they give quite a thud as they launch too. The free pack is usually okay too nothing special but could be worse I suppose.
Think its usually the first weekend after the 15th its printed so maybe 18/19th or they could wait for the week after 25/26.

The free pack is a good idea to get more sales, it isn't difficult to spend £15 on fireworks, and when you do you get free stuff, its great :D

Ive got a pic of a few of mine from last year, shows the free pack,

Free ones were the "pyro" ones so there were 3 fountains, roman candle and the multishot.

They wernt as good as previous years but they were okay :) Would still go for it again if they have it this year

Agree that they weren't as good as previous years, but likewise won't stop me this year

they still haven't replied to my email, supermarket customer service really is Fudge Berries!, unless their fireworks are good and the free deal is on, i won't buy from them.

I hope sainsburys go back to TNT this year, just for the fact that the free pack (if, hopefully the offer runs again) was loads better the one year it was TNT.

They weren't that good, there have definitely been better 1.4g supermarket rockets
I know when morrisons sold cosmic and those tnt afterburner from asda and the blue apollo from lidl that was years back though. I wish supermarkets sold cosmic and brands like that

I agree, cosmic is so much better than standard/tnt

Its quite rare to find decent supermarket items from standard though, I recon their is more chance with TNT, ie asdas special buys in the last couple of years and the pumpkin and champagne fountains.

Oh yeah, no doubt that tnt is better in every way than standard, but they're still not that good compared to cosmic, brothers etc
