Default Tesco Clubcard Vouchers - Someone elses name

Hi All

I'm really sorry if this post shouldn't go here or if it's already been answered. I had a quick scout around but couldn't find the answer anyway.

A friend has given me some Tesco Clubcard vouchers 7 in value plus the vouchers they send for extra points etc... Would I be able to use these vouchers? Has anyone tried to use someone elses vouchers? I'm a bit reluctant to try if I'm going to get stopped at the checkout as they will probably think I'm up-to-no-good! Could I also use them online to buy a deals voucher? I've looked on the teco website but can't find anything on there either.

Rebecca

You can use them instore (although some staff members might not take them - not many though). Do you have a Clubcard keyfob thingie - as they are not named - so you could use that with the vouchers no problem.

You can't convert them online into deals as they have to be sent to the same address where they were issued. So you could ask the friend to convert them for you and then give them to you.

I tried to use my sisters vouchers, they told me no as I didn't have the relevent clubcard, and my cash card was in another name- they check in my store. But haveing said this, I have used them in the past at other stores and gotten away with it- I guess it depends on the SA and if you talk to them/know them, it could help I guess.

Default Self scan tills

If you go via the self scan tills, the points coupons will be accepted as the tills can't check the name. The 7 coupon does come up "approval needed" (the tills do this for other things like alcohol too), but the person manning these tills usually just hit the aprooval button

Hi guys, could anyone help with these club card vouchers, I keep seeing them advertised on ebay, if i bought them off ebay how would i use them for say BA miles or to book hotels or days out, am i missing something? if there not transferable how would i check into a hotel or book a BA flight or go to Alton towers???????
sorry if i sound daft but never used the tesco vouchers before, although i do have a keyfob.

They must be transferable as so many people on ebay buy them

Yes, but don't people only use the vouchers they buy on eBay if the seller converts them into 'transferrable' Deals? I have bought a fair few from eBay in the past, and just asked the seller to convert them to Days Out or Restaurant Deals (the surname on them doesn't matter and you can also use them for any Deals code starting with an S so they are flexible).

For instance Holiday Deals in another name would be little use to someone else as I think this would be checked and the name has to match someone on the booking. I suppose someone could book a UK break with the name of one of the party matching the surname of the person on the Deals voucher - so then the names would match!

But you wouldn't/shouldn't be able to use a stranger's Deals for a holiday abroad (as the names on the booking obviously have to be correct to match your passport). And I think some Goldsmiths ask for ID to match the name on Goldsmiths Deals as well so using those Deals in another name would be chancing it.

OP, don't ask Tesco. The answer is 'no' you are not supposed to use someone else's vouchers...:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

If it were me though, I would use the smaller 50p off coupons etc. with your own keyfob if you want to buy the items stated at the till. And I would ask your friend if they mind if you convert 6.25 of their 7 voucher to 25 in S code Deals (see Tesco Deals website, I think it has to be a multiple of 1.25). These Deals will then arrive at their addy and have their surname on. Will they still pass the Deals to you though - if you are sure they will then go ahead & convert some to 'transferrable' (in theory, any S-code) Deals.
Ticket in a private car park in England/Wales?... DON'T PAY IT BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT- the advice changed in 2012.

USE THE FORUM JUMP TO GO TO THE PARKING SUB FORUM AND READ THE 'NEWBIES' THREAD.
Do NOT read older advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

You should be OK with Alton Towers vouchers, Merlin Passes, Bella Italia Vouchers and things like that.
The surname doesn't matter.

Also, i think with the Alton Towers & Merlin passes there's a form where you fill YOUR details in anyway or the seller can fill the form in (as a "gift" for someone), giving them YOUR name - so it shouldn't be a problem.

Some deal partner says they would not accept the voucher as "gift". I am planning to buy some voucher over ebay (ask the seller to transfer the voucher into deal voucher first).

My question is whether the deal voucher has their surname on? Anyone here use someone else deal voucher for Virgin holiday?

Ive booked a holiday with Virgin this year using my own deal vouchers, not only do they have my surname on them but you have to post the original vouchers to virgin. So i dont think you are going to be able to use someone elses vouchers

All deal vouchers have the name of the original Clubcard member. So there is no way you can use them for a holiday. I think the only deals that you can use without a problem, even with the original name on, are for the restaurant and days out. I have used a number of restaurant vouchers bought via e-bay without any problem.

i have used my mums vouchers to go with mine to book a holiday but we have the same surnames and we used cosmos i think it was, ended up saving 700 off the holiday and it was the cheapest way to do it, even online searching or the travel agents couldnt come up with a better deal on the original price

I leant my friend some vouchers as she wanted to book a ferry and hadn't received hers. She had no problem. She repaid me and I too used her codes on my account. I also used my OHs on my account.

I've used my familys vouchers before and never been stopped. Our Tesco is only small though so maybe it's different in other stores?
