    My problem with Lidl and Aldi is that they are good for the basic stuff, but I usually end up missing around a third of the items on my shopping list and having to go to a second supermarket anyway. Sainsbury's is the nearest to my local Lidl but expensive, so overall I end up spending more than simply going to Tesco and getting everything in one go.

    Certainly used to be the case, some time ago, and we had to have regular top ups at Waitrose or Tesco.

    Not any more. Aldi’s best for us, but Lidl’s not far short. All we need comes from one or the other now, with a visit to Waitrose maybe every month or so for the oddments that can’t be had. And we’re pretty fussy about what we eat. Just not remotely fussed about branding.

    It's annoying that this is not linked to my Pay+ account so when I make payment in store I now have to open my Clubcard Plus app then switch to my Pay+ app to pay. Why are they not linked!?

    Also, even if you use Scan As You Shop, which requires you to scan your Clubcard, you still have to re-scan your Clubcard at the till. This did not used to be the case.


    Had a thought the other day: is there anything stopping us getting two Clubcard Plus subscriptions for a single household? My wife and I both have Clubcards so theoretically it should work. It'd mean we can use the 10% off nearly every week and as long as we spend 4x£40 in a month it'd save money. Even if we skipped a week due to holiday, etc. we'd still save money if we had 2x£40 and 1x£80 shop in a month, which I'm sure would always happen.

    And you have to have the app. It would cost me more to get that phone than I could save in several years using the app. So that will be a no then.

    So if you are disabled as I am and have your groceries delivered (which obviously carries a delivery charge so not a perk) you cannot use the scheme. Nice to be discriminated against yet again!
    I too have a midweek delivery groceries pass and decided not to pay for this new scheme.
    I thought you could get 10% off two deliveries per month, though?
    I have Tesco mobile but don’t need any more data. I am not joining the new scheme as I get money off coupons for Sainsburys, Waitrose , Ocado etc.

    Good morning

    Joined clubcard plus last week and unable to find answer to simple question.

    Does the two discounted shops run per calendar month or from when I signed up ? Reason I ask is that I wouldn't want to do one shop today then another in December then find that I only had one discounted shop left in December.

    I love Lidl........can get through the store and tills in half the time it takes me to get round Tesco. Minimal choice which to me is a good thing.
    I agree there are some things that you just cant get at Lidl so my other shop of choice is Sainsburys who......as I dont use them all the time send me lots of £12 and £9 vouchers so I make full use of these and stock up on the things I cant get at Lidl.
    Gives me points as well which although isnt going to make me rich.....gives me enough to go in on New years Day and stock up on Christmas cards, wrapping paper, crackers for following year saving me even more money. :D

    Just tried it so been told it's not a calender month and the month starts from when you signed up. So now I can get three discounted shops in December as long as the first one is before the anniversary of my signing up. 10% off Christmas and new year shop should help with the money saving. Couple of points, you have to press the big shop button on your phone app before scanning or you don't get the discount and we spent £132 and only got £9 something discount as some of the shopping was either already reduced or Christmas gifts.

    Maybe slightly different to this, - in the T&Cs

    https://secure.tesco.com/clubcard/help/cc-plus-terms-conditions


    section 5 says the month starts "on the day we successfully process your first payment" ( so NOT necessarily the day you sign up - In section 4 it says "The Subscription Fee will be taken on or after the date you sign up for Clubcard Plus" ) -





    Your Clubcard Plus Subscription:
    • is divided into periods which are one calendar month in length (each a "Subscription Period");
    • will start on the day that we successfully process the first payment of your Subscription Fee ("Start Date"); and
    • will automatically renew each calendar month until your Clubcard Plus Subscription auto-renewal is cancelled (by you) or is terminated (by us) in accordance with these terms and conditions.
    As an example, if your Start Date is 15 November, your Clubcard Plus Subscription will automatically renew on 15 December.

    Does anyone know what version of Android the latest Tesco Clubcard app needs?

    I'm thinking of going for this £7.99 a month for 10% off shopping because I normally shop at Tescos anyway (usually spending £40 - £60 a week).

    The trouble is, I have a rather old mobile phone now - it's at Android version 4.4.4
