Tesco misprices thread 6 - please only post misprices here

This thread is only for posting any misprices you find at Tescos.

Please don't use this thread for discussion of the policy or any other discussions as this will detract from the actual misprices which will get lost amongst the chatter; there is a dedicated thread here for any discussion. Any discussion posts or repeat misprice posts will be deleted so the thread does not get cluttered up, so it's best not to post in the wrong place ;)


For new readers:

For clarification SEL stands for Shelf Edge Label, R & R stands for Refund & Retain

the Tesco policy on signs instore is :-

"And if things don't add up ~ In the unlikely event you are charged a higher price than on the shelf or the product we will refund your money and you can keep the product"

Compare the price per kilo on the pack with the shelf edge label price per kilo and where there is a difference the lowest price must be charged.

Thanks to !!!!!! Dastardly for providing the following information from the DTI website which summarises consumer rights in relation to misleading price indications:

Q1. I was charged a different price for an item at the till to the one that was shown on the shelf, what are my rights?

The Consumer Protection Act 1987 makes it an offence for a trader to give a consumer misleading price indications. In the first instance speak to the trader about the differing prices, if you are not satisfied with the response, contact your local authority trading standards department who enforce the Act and who could bring a prosecution against the trader.

    Thanks to Snowball2 for this one - also bought age 8-9 so don't know if others are affected.

    Full R&R with no problems.


    Hi, were these reduced or was the printed price wrong. thanks.

    These were not reduced, it was a standard printed label with £12 on the tear off portion at the bottom. Happy hunting!

    Not sure of the exact details on this, but as I stood at CS getting my r&r, I noticed a lady complaing that her BOGOF for carte Noire coffee never triggered. As my transaction had completed at the same time I followed SA to the the SEL, she turned it round (although there was no stock left anyway) might be worth checking out?.

    3 x 24 packs of Tetley's smoothflow, SEL £14.98, scanned at £15.98 full R&R for £47.94 no problem. The SEL was white.

    Fuji camera SEL was £179.xx, scanning as this price too. Think they must have it sorted.

    The fuji camera issue is really strange, some stores have them priced at £179 and at least two stores have them priced at £219, I managed to find one that had a £199 SEL and scan at £219.


    so these are definately worth looking for !
