Supermarket Price Matching. Is this a scam!
I purchased from Tesco Hazlewick Crawely before Christmas 1kg pots of 0% and full fat Greek style Yoghurt, their own brand. This has a price match quote on the price label matching it to Aldis at .89p. A week or so after the tesco's brands went up to £1.15 and due to trying to shop locally i assumed that the Aldis price had risen to as they still had the price match on this. However, going into Aldis i discovered that their equivalent 1kg pots were still .89p. I took a photo of the Tesco pots and raised this with their Customer Services on line. They offered me a 52p voucher (which does not cover my out of pocket costs) and said they would sort this with the branch and apologised.
However, yesterday when I went in to tthe same Tesco branch the yoghurst had been priced at £1.25 with the same Aldi price match. I raised this with the Manager inside the shop who said they would phone me and again apologised. When I came home I went onto the Aldi web site and put in 1kg Greek Yoghurt and this is still .89p. I am concerned that Tesco's are using a lot of price matching with Aldi's which is incorrect and all though this may be on one product it is unfair to consumers.
