It's a bit of a pain as sometimes items don't scan, but these can be added on at the end, once the shopping had loaded onto the till. Sometimes the system falls over and you have to use the normal tills. I've had problems about 50% of the time that I use it.
And there are spot checks as well, which is fine, if only the staff were more attentive and could stop chatting with their colleagues for long enough to scan a few items.
I don't think that it's any quicker than using a manned till, to be honest.
Usually there is no one using the Scan And Go checkouts. I think that the most that I have seen is one person.
I love it, you get a running total of what you are spending as you go round (helps with budgeting). You pack as you go so can take your time with this, no rushing as the items come off the conveyer belt.
You do get random checks and if they find a discrency they will check more but if not its only a few items.
There is never a queue for scan and go which is another bonus.
That is what puts me off trying it.
Although you may see a few people round the store with scanners you seldom see anyone using the dedicated checkouts. The impression I get is that is it not popular the self scan checkouts seem far busier.
I always use cash for shopping so tesco scan and shop is great. You can keep an eye on spending just by looking at the hand held scanners screen. I’ve never forgotten to scan something and always find it fuss free to pay and leave.
The Asda system needs to be changed so that all forms of payment are available at the dedicated scan and shop tills.
I would have thought that with some children there would also be the risk of additional items finding their way into the trolley unscanned leading to awkward conversations in the event of a random check.
