None here. I had loads of Nectar points vouchers in the run up to Christmas but I don't think I've had a money off voucher since September-ish.
I always thought that you tended to get more vouchers if you visited a supermarket less, but I've been using Sainsbury's less and less recently (my local one is awkward to get to) and getting fewer and fewer vouchers - there seems to be fewer till-spits too. I got quite a lot of pretty generous money off vouchers from Waitrose in the run up to Christmas after not using them for a while, but Sainsbury's seems to be a law unto itself since they fiddled about with the Nectar points.
This fiasco is just one more nail in Tesco's coffin I guess.
Yep, only £1.64bn of profit, an increase of 28%....
Tesco - another nail in the coffin
Loyalty is a two way street, where's Tesco's loyalty to its customers? Compare with Sainsbury (Nectar) which never expire... Or my free newspaper at Waitrose (despite their generally higher prices) is a more valuable incentive.
Anyway I now have a repeating Google calendar entry at the start of the expiry months to check and spend expiring vouchers so at least they're not going to catch me that way again - but doubtless they'll come up with more rip-offs like the recent "devaluation". Time to move on I think.
