Chrisco is for losers and The Good Guys aren't

This has taken a couple of days to compile and wasn’t helped by Chrisco’s inexplicable website outage but now they have finally updated their packages for next year (if they last that long) I thought it might be timely to see if it is actually worth using Chrisco or the so-called Good Guys for your Christmas savings scheme.

In the interests of simplicity I have compared the meat pack offerings from Chriscos and The Good Guys and if you bought the same products from your local Mad Butcher outlet. Here is the summary for you after I trotted along to the Mad Butcher in Manukau to compare prices.

Chrisco

  • Mega Meat – Chrisco price = $610.00. Same products at Mad Butcher $424.77. 44% dearer at Chrisco
  • Maxi Meat – Chrisco price = $430.00. Same products at Mad Butcher $291.04.? 48% dearer at Chrisco
  • Family Meat – Chrisco price = $279.00. Same products at Mad Butcher $179.09. 56% dearer at Chrisco
  • Kiwi Christmas Monster Meats – Chrisco price $595.00. Same products at Mad Butcher $418.74. 42% dearer at Chrisco
  • Kiwi Mega Meats – Chrisco price = $395.00. Same products at Mad Butcher $301.51. 31% dearer at Chrisco
  • Kiwi Christmas Family Roasts – Chrisco price = $275.00. Same Profucts at Mad Butcher $207.41. 33% dearer at Chrisco
  • Kiwi Barbie Buster – Chrisco Price = $275.00. Same Products at Mad Butcher $147.39. 87% dearer at Chrisco.

Good Guys

  • Chicken and Pork – Good Guys price = $400.00. Same products at Mad Butcher $226.74. 76% dearer at Good Guys.
  • Quarter Beef Pack – Good Guys price = $400.00. Same products at Mad Butcher $200.51. 99% dearer at Good Guys.
  • BBQ Steak – Good Guys price = $400.00. same products at mad Butcher $177.41. 125% dearer at Good Guys.

So what we know now is that Chrisco is for losers as in losing up to 87% of your hard earned cash and worse the Good Guys aren’t good guys at all they are blatant gougers and rip-off merchants scalping up to $125% of your hard earned cash.

If Labour were serious about their banking/finance enquiry they should have had a good hard look at hamper type companies like Chrisco and The Good Guys who more than likely are gouging their constituents far more than any bank or finance company.

In fact these rates would be considered usury if they were a finance company. Which brings me to the question that has been hanging out there for quite sometime since I first raised it. Why are the Commerce Commission taking so long in their investigation of Chrisco?

The simple fact is that poorest amongst us are being taken advantage of by the likes of Chrisco and The Good Guys. It is high time for some action.
