FREE Tesco Clubcard points for turning GREEN !!!!!

  • New policy for Tesco stores -

    Customers will earn Clubcard points every time they save and reuse bags, instead of using a new Tesco carrier bag, to pack their shopping.

    This applies when the customer re-uses:

    * A Tesco carrier bag or one from another retailer, fabric shopping bags, freezer bags or any other non-disposable bag
    * A wheelie trolley
    * Produce boxes or any other boxes
    * Or any other form of packing for their shopping
    * As they offer help with bag packing, staff will be trained to ask whether customers have their own bags or if not, explain the scheme.


    Carrier bags are a standard 1 point but if, for example, a customer fills a Wheelie Trolley they could earn 3 points, while a half full trolley might earn 2 points.

    That's a very sensible suggestion actually. Stops the arguements.
    It's BOUGHT (to Buy), not BROUGHT (to bring) AND you cannot be frauded, only DEfrauded.

    Please do not buy animals from a pet store. Visit your local sanctuary or centre and give a good home to an unloved or abandoned animal.

    Good for Tesco, it may save them money, but at least they are trying to make us think before we just grab another new bag! Personnally I have been stacking on bags for life to cut on rubbish, but the normal bags I use for my bins, clearing up after the dog, use at school fairs for the stalls, etc. As it is for each shop that you take 5 bags in deals that will be worth 20p, one shop at 5 bags a time becomes £10.40 a year and I know that I am in at least twice a week, with a minimum of 5 bags a time! Money that I would not have had to spend previously.

    Supermarkets USED to charge for their carriers back in to good ole days LOL

    I actually got a point for just using my rather large handbag back on the 24th JULY at Baldock Tescos.

    Also, didnt Sainsburys use to give you a penny for each carrier bag you reused too??!!

    Its not a new idea, but it is a good one.

    i think its terrible how shops automatically put stuff in bags for you instead of asking if you want one.

    Boots has had a policy for YEARS to ask if customers require a bag, not that the majority of staff actually adhere to it though.

    Hmmmm... Although I appreciate that they need to have guidelines, that is just not right...

    A bag for life should not equal 1 normal bag - it should be at least 2 or 3.

    A wine carrier for life takes 6 bottles, so shouldn't equal 1 normal bag... :rolleyes: When was the last time anyone could put 6 bottles of wine into a poxy little plastic bag?!

    Grrrr... I can see problems with this already. :rolleyes:

    They did but staff were not very aware of this - 9 times out of 10 they wouldn't

    So what if I took an old carrier bag and put each bottle of wine in one and then into my carrier....that's nine points for the bags plus one for the carrier....surely ;)
