    If you shop at Tesco over the next month, you may be asked if you want to round up your bill to the nearest 10p to raise money for Diabetes UK and the British Heart Foundation...

    Not necessarily. At least one customer card scheme allows you to pick the charity you want to give to from a long list of charities.

    You do have to register an interest into donating to the charity of your choices before you go in to shop though.

    So it would be only, do want to round up. Even this could be done away with if you oped in into this on your card before you shop.

    Well, the self service tills in our local Tesco Metro were backed up when I went in.
    I usually pop in at the same time several times a week to check if they've got any bargains and the queues were twice as long as normal.

    The 'do you want to round up?' screen pops up and people have to read it and opt in or out before moving on to the 'pay' screen..
    I was aware of this and can read & digest information pretty quickly but it did put extra seconds on the time I spent at the till.
    Multiply that by a large volume of customers and you get queues.
