    Is this the new 'contactless' one? Surely the old ones were contactless anyway as all you had to do is hold them in front of the scanner, barcode side up!

    The QR code works fine scanning in store just not at the filling stations. What makes it worse is that they have recently upgraded the scanners at the pumps. I think maybe someone somewhere has made a bit of a boo boo

    Tapping and scanning are not available at some Fuel Pay at Pump terminals until late 2017.

    I was just handed my fob by MrsM so didn't get to read any instructions.
    Nothing mentioned in the on line FAQs and in fact
    Will my old Clubcard continue to work?

    Only for a little while, so we recommend you cut up any old cards and dispose of them in household waste.
    So I go back to someone has made a boo boo and this has been found out at a late stage. Looks like the usual corporaee cluster!!!!

    We're desperate for the £2:50 voucher for filling up, to buy cocoa!

    Gave the husband his new card this evening so I had better tell him about the issues before the Met Office put out a warning that the air has turned an interesting shade of blue over our local Tescos filling station.
