Heard a Tesco man on the radio just a little while ago.

DON'T USE NEW CARRIER BAGS AT TESCO !!!!!! (from August 14th anyway !!!)

For every old one you use, or for every new one that you DO NOT use by using cardboard boxes, or "normal" multi-trip shopping bags, or shopping crates or whatever (use a suitcase if that is what you prefer - that's what he said) ......

.... TESCO will award you 1 Clubcard point.


Look out for a series of TV adverts featuring a host of celebrities, including Martine McCutcheon, Paul Daniels, Ronnie Corbett, Alan Titchmarsh and Frankie Dettori to explain exactly how the scheme will work.

BASICALLY - Checkout staff will assess how many bags each shopper is saving and agree a number of points to be awarded. The points accumulated for re-using bags will be highlighted on Clubcard statements as
"green points".

So if your shopping trolley full of goodies would normally fill 20 carrier bags, use old ones (don't have to be Tesco's either - any will do - Asda, Sainsbury's etc.) or load them into something else - and you will get 20 points at the checkout !!!

These points could mount up very quickly and be worth quite a lot in the "deals arena" and ALL FOR FREE !!!!

SO TURN GREEN and you'll be in THE PINK !!!

    Great idea and thanks for posting, but am just wondering how this would work in practice?

    I mean, I use Bags for Life, and each one takes about two normal bags' worth of stuff, so how will the cashier determine just how many bags you're saving? :confused:

    This is going to cause a bit of confusion at the checkouts... :rotfl:

    But as I said, an excellent idea. :T :T :T

    Hi yes i saw it on BBC Breakfast TV and emailed them my comments saying its a joke really as the bags are so useless anyway they get binned, false economy as if they made better quality bags in the first place then could reuse, I reuse any for my kitchen bin if they are reusable

    According to this, points for not using bags starts 14th August, and in September Tesco will start using biodegradable bags and thicker, reusable bags.
  • I always use old carrier bags and have never been awarded any points for it. Went to Tesco 2 days ago and then this morning... hmm

    Never can understand why people don't do this as a matter of course I bought half a dozen bags for life and one big trolley bag and hardly ever use any of the freebies when the bags are too tatty to use they just swop them for new ones at the checkout..... they are only 10p and last your forever.....

    COME ON PEOPLE HOW HARD IS IT?

    This is going to be fun for MSErs... Now we'll be able to spot each other in the Tesco queues as we'll be the people arguing with the checkout staff about whether we're saving 19 or 20 bags... :D

    This sounds like a great idea. I do this most of the time anyway so itll be nice to have some extra points.
    I dont know how it will work at the self scan tills though, because dont they need you to put the items into their bags on the bagging area to weigh them? I usually just go to a checkout but on the few occasions when Ive used self scan, and just chucked the things in my handbag, the till doesnt like it - and one assistant told me off for confusing the poor machine as well!
  • Just saw this on Channel 4 news. I think it's gonna be difficult to work this one.

    "Under the new scheme, Tesco customers will also be able to gain points - which they can redeem to buy goods - by using cardboard boxes provided in stores."

    I always use boxes at Aldi & Lidl (where bags cost MONEY !) and also at Morrisons (where bags are free) where there are usually loads stacked up at the tills, mainly because they work better in the boot of a car.
    Boxes don't usually break or fall over leaving tins and bottles rolling all over the place.

    Sadly it is usually very difficult to find boxes in my local Asda, Sainsburys etc.

    This is a great idea as I always use old bags or my Bag For Life and my mum just gave me an M&S fabric bag that will real help me.
    BUT I get very frustrated with the checkout staff sometimes, some of them will not ask B4 packing my shopping for me, I have been known to take all my shopping out of the nicely packed bag and into my own bag!

    but on the few occasions when Ive used self scan, and just chucked the things in my handbag, the till doesnt like it - and one assistant told me off for confusing the poor machine as well!

    You have to watch with the mini scan tills you HAVE to bag into their bags, if you put ANYTHING on the bag section weight thing it goes mental (I have done it so many times!) I wonder how this will work when there are clubcard points at stake...!

    :D:D:D
    Thanks!! :D:D:D
