    My lovely delivery driver came to my door all smiles that I had reached the grand total of 450 home delivery shops with Mr T. The driver had envelope in hand which of course I excitedly opened.
    Alas the disappointment !!! - for being such a loyal shopper - spending on average of £110 per week - lots more at holiday times - so £110 by 450 shops totalling at least £50,000 !!!! - they were so "kind" to give me a card with a bonus 250 tesco clubcard points on my next shop with them.

    REALLY TESCO - you would have been better saying nothing at all !!

    Harry Potter world has lots of muggles

    Tesco world has lots of mugs - people who believe that Tesco actually cares, or even gives a !!!! about anything other than their own profits.

    Shop at your nearest Aldi or Lidl, with transport costs you would still not spend as much as you will at Tesco.

    I downloaded the Payqwik app for Tesco last week, you get 50 extra points on your first 10 shops where you pay using the app, so i got more points than you did just for popping in and buying some milk ! I detest having to go anywhere other than Aldi or Lidl, i just feel as though i'm being ripped off.

    You got something for free and you've actually gone to the trouble of going to a forum to start an entire new thread to vent about it?

    Tesco have been one of the supermarket s boasting about the vast profits of their online operation. But most analyst think that it's a loss leader and more about maintaining volume and preventing sales from competitors.

    They think that supermarkets lose between £5, £7 or £20 per delivered shop depending on who you believe. So you've cost Tesco between £2,250, £3,150 or £9,000!

    Give over. If you'd had nothing you wouldn't have thought anything of it but an unexpected £2.50 and you're grumpy!

    Unlikely.

    Even Ocado is managing to make a profit these days. £12 million quid might not be much, but it is a profit. Tesco's online operation is about 2.5 times bigger than Ocado, and they've got better margins, so it's odd on it's profitable.

    If you did that, they would give you a puzzled look as Clubcard doesn't work like that, you spend the vouchers not the points!

    They are closing the Orchard Club, which was quite a nice perk,when the product to be sampled was to your liking. I wonder if Bzzagent, too (never got much from that as I don't the demographic).


    The promise is more in store samples (ie a spoonful on a cracker , instead of a whole pack to try)and more promotions. However, what happened to the promised extra reward point promotions and online voucher exchange offers , supposed to make up for losing Double Up ? I've noticed no extra points promotions and the online offers have not improved (same magazines, meals out nowhere near where you live, days out a few branded items; hardly 'something for everyone').

    Feels like feeding a small army - my £110 per week feeds 2 adults and 3 growing teens! - all their meals - breakfast, packed lunches, dinner, supper and everything inbetween - fruit biscuits etc. It includes all bread, milk, meat as well as toiletries eg shampoo, hair products, soaps, cleaning products, washing machine detergent etc .....and couple of bottles of vino.

    Overall I dont think £3.14 approx per person per day for all above is too bad. Yes I could shave some off this but not a lot.

    I'm sure someone will be along soon to say that you could feed them all from just a thruppenny bit and a piece of string if you shopped at Aldi or Lidl.
