An incredible offer from Coles supermarket has sparked a buying frenzy among shoppers.
The little-known deal gave customers the chance to pick up five packs of meat for just $25 if they shopped on Coles’ website in the past few days.
Shoppers had a range of meat purchases to choose from, including beef burgers, chicken cutlets and lamb strips.

Popular social media group Markdown Addicts Australia promoted the deal across their Instagram and Facebook pages, prompting a huge reaction from followers.
Many quickly took advantage of the offer and shared photos of their amazing forays.
Some also took advantage of other Coles deals that offered $5 off chicken and meat purchases, lowering their totals even further.
“I picked mine up earlier, they didn’t have two of the chicken cutlets so they replaced them with a large pack,” said one.
Adding another: “I picked mine up today, they had everything I ordered! Satisfied customer!”
A third wrote: “Got mine today, ordered last night and everything was in stock. Thanks for the bargain!”
Another said: “I just ordered and received a chicken promo and MEAT5 so my grand total was $38.70 for 10 dinners.”
Another wrote: “I ordered last night and am now picking it up. Just a replacement. Also, I got the extra $5 chicken offer. Noise.”
About 24 hours after the offer went live, Coles changed the offer from “5 for $25” to “5 for $45,” as it now appears on the site.
Others said they were refunded for their purchases due to the popularity.
“I ordered it and they canceled it. No stock,” one wrote.
Another said: “Tried to order this morning, was refunded within half an hour.”
A Coles worker added: “So many are greedy too. Don’t come to me about “prices and inflation.”
“I clicked for a customer who was filled as best she could and she filled two more orders for the morning. You will not be fulfilled. We have no stock!”
