Tesco getting like Scrooge

Posted: August 10, 2011 in General

Have you noticed Tesco have removed toys and clothing departments off their Clubcard Voucher Exchange offer, how mean is that.

IlieAs my dear old mum would say that offer is “something of nothing”.

If you exchange your Clubcard vouchers by 1st September and redeem your tokens by 11th September 2011 they double in value, every £5 voucher turns into £10.

Last year Mrs W doubled up her £40 and spent £80 on toys for the grandkids’ Christmas presents, whilst one of the Wellers daughters doubled up and spent it on school uniforms.

Unfortunately this year Tesco have done a crafty and removed toys and clothes from the departments list where the tokens can be spent.

The departments this year are Skincare & Cosmetics, Flowers & Plants, Mobile phones, Opticians and Pet Food & Accessories. Food and Soft Drinks is included but they all have to be ‘Finest’ brand. Who wants £80 worth of flowers or petfood?

I suppose you could ‘ponce about’ and exchange £5 units in one department and then £5 units in another making sure the products you buy come to just under the £5 unit.

Anyway seems mean to me and not worth the trouble, better off shopping at Asda and doing Asda price guarantee and getting a money off voucher because your shopping wasn’t 10% cheaper than the other major supermarkets.

Read this if you are thinking of flying somewhere for a holiday.

NEW DELHI: One more person has been arrested for allegedly using forged marksheets to procure commercial flying licences, taking the total number of people arrested in the case to 22.
