    First post for a while.

    With my eye on the countdown to the 6th Dec deadline I decided to book a weekend break (a regular gig so to speak) in a hotel in a market town to attend a festival. Never had a problem before with three hotel chains supplying establishments in the area and therefore having the option to pick and choose where I stay. My experience this time round. One hotel opting out of the scheme (but may come back on board at a later date) and the other two quoting non availability for my dates (over quota). Never had a problem before. The festival itself is far from mainstream.

    I am instantly suspicious. I have another regular gig around the wifes birthday which I'm going to sound out (different dates and destinations) and If the same thing occurs, well, it would be easy for me to suspect collusion between Tesco and its partners with Tesco "encouraging" its partners to declare non availability till after the deadline. However, thinking of the logistics of carrying this out and the repercussions if it was to be the case lead me to think I might be a little paranoid. But then again, thats what they all say.........

    Anybody else experiencing this since the announcement?

    I've had the same problem, although I've only tried calling up one hotel so far..

    Very bizarre that when we checked on their website they were showing availability but then I called them direct and all the weekends I was looking for were apparently fully booked. She did give me another number to try however so may give that a go...

    As far as I know they only have a certain number of rooms available to clubcard vouchers at any one time. This may be why there was availability online, but not when you rang up.

    Hi I am planning to spend the clubcard point on Megabus. The T&C usually state that 'token are not transferable'. So just wonder if I am going to book 6 tickets for myself and family, could I use the clubcard towards the whole tickets or it can only be used for my ticket? Does anyone know about this?
    Thank you.

    Anyway, when you get to the checkout on Megabus there is a box that says something about voucher. I suspect you just put in the voucher number and it will deduct it from the balance outstanding.

    To be sure, why not ring Megabus - after having looked for a geographical number at 'saynoto0870.com' first, else you will have a horrendus phone bill at the end !

    By the way they wont send the tokens in the post they send them by email.

    Hope that helps.

    I've been trying to book with Megabus all afternoon, fine if I want to pay real money but it wasn't going to do anything with the tokens. Finally rang Tesco (cos I wasn't going to spend 60p/minute) and 2 hours later they've rung back to confirm that they can't get it to work either so they will refund me my 5 voucher.

    So, if I were you I'd just cough up the real dough and use your Clubcard Rewards for some magazines to read on the journey.

    unless they are vetoing all availability for the next 6m (because thats how long deal tokens are valid for), then yes, i do think you are paranoid

    whats stopping you changing up vouchers now, whilst they are still at 4x the value?

    I ordered double up vouchers online to use online, expecting the codes to be emailed to me. I've had an acknowledgement, followed by a despatch email...sent by Royal Mail??????
    This was over a week ago now...help!

    I sent tesco a question but they are so busy I think it will be easier to get the answer on here. I have a 15 clubcard voucher and I want to get 4x prezzo tokens. Will they send it as a 60 token or does it usually come in smaller increments as without drinks we would not spend that amount in Prezzo?

    If not I'll trade in less and get the balance back on the next mailing at 3x.

    You did say to Tesco didn't you that you didn't receive your 'restaurant deals tokens'?
    That is you rang 0808 1000 707 for Tesco Freetime, rather than the standard Clubcard no?
    It just that the rest seems ambigous - could apply to cash vouchers not rec'd and 'rolled over' for next mailing!

    Tesco's petrol is always more expensive around my way than Sainsburys. Their own brand food is pretty tasteless too. Give me Sainsburys any day.

    Please check your reward deal tokens carefully ordered 2 x celtic deals for personalised items for DH for christmas turned up yesterday 1 correct with celtic the other has Aston Villa on the actual token even though the form to fill in is correct with celtic bearing in mind these took 2 weeks to come I rang yesterday now have to send the wrong one back with covering letter then wait for them to replace it and post again it takes 7 days when I send the form off to claim the item with post gradually getting busier what is the chances of having this sorted by Christmas to go with the other. LOL

    SO CHECK DEALS VOUCHERS CAREFULLY

    It was at the beginning of November and it was in the mailing...

    Nectar points are useless compared to Tesco Clubcard points...I have over 1000 nectar points and the only thing i can get is 5 off cinema tickets....
