    Look out Tesco England I'm on my way!

    To be honest, Ben, the stores are so inconsistent with their own policies on accepting vouchers that it wouldn't really be possible to produce an accurate list. You can go back to the same store an hour later and get a different response to their voucher policy!

    As a general rule, you are normally allowed to spend no more than 10% of the total value of the amount spent using vouchers (for products that you haven't actually bought.) That's the average tesco policy but it does vary!

    I am travelling from Cardiff to Torquay this weekend and would prefer if Tesco's financed the trip for me.

    I got a booklet from Tesco, only last week, with maps and details of all the filling stations. I would imagine that most are attached to a Tesco store so this might be worth looking out for.

    Also Tesco customer service is a freephone number so it might be worth ringing them and asking whereabouts Tesco stores are on your route. It might be worth having your map open and a red marker pen at the ready.

    TRY THIS ONE THEN!

    If you was to go into Tesco's and there was 5 items left on the counter of a BOGOF. So you buy all five.

    Then you tell the girl on the till (and the subsequent supervisor when she is called over!!!) that you actually wanted "10"!

    So rather than buying two, getting two free, and a voucher for the remainder, you buy the 5 full price and get them to give you a voucher for 5 more for nothing at a later date whne you need them again!

    Works for me!!! :rotfl:

    I wanted to buy chicken sandwich meat for the childrens lunch packs but the fridge shelf was empty of the one on special offer, think it was Bernard mathews honey roast. Anyway it was on a BOGOF.

    So I went to customer service and asked if I could have a rain check voucher and said that I wanted to buy four packs (should have been cheeky and have asked for 6 really, never mind!). It was a very long tortuous process to fill in the slip, involving two cutomer service ladies but worth it in the end.

    Next time I was in I picked up four packs and presented them at the till. It was still on BOGOF. Two packs were free and she deducted the cost of the other two packs off my bill. So in effect I had 4 free packs.

    This is how it should work but if only tesco would train their staff..

    Our store is a 24 hour store so refilling shelves so they are full is not always easy. So I am making a point now of checking for empty BOGOF shelves.

    I think in future if I have one of these slips I will take it through as a seperate transaction through the basket till. Especially if there is a jobsworth on that till just to annoy them!

    I don't know what coupons they accept, but in Torquay we don't have a Tesco super store. There is a Tesco Metro in the town centre (at the GPO roundabout) and two Tesco Express, one at a Esso petrol station on the Teignmouth Road, and one on Barton Hill Road. The nearest Tesco superstore is at Newton Abbot. They definitely accept coupons there.

    Walls sausages, bogof, only one on shelf, so took it up to cash desk, because it was last on offer the item was free, so buy none get one free!
    Apparently this is current policy in Sainsburys, so if you dont get offered this deal kick up a stink.

    I'm also a bit annoyed now. Countless times I have not been able to get an offer because of low stock, and when I go to customer services I get a woman with attitude problem not understanding that I would now like the missing item from the offer. WHY did she not tell me that I should ask for the voucher at till next time and WHY is there no mention of this very useful service when things are out of stock for home delivery? There is nothing on the home shopping site (perhaps should be in substitutions section?), and if one item is unavailable they will supply you with only one (when "bogof", 1 or 2 if "3 for 2") and you don't get your free one! pah! I'd be a much more satisfied customer if the driver supplied me with a little voucher of entitlement!!

    I was wondering if tesco online shoppers can have this too?

    Like many disabled people I do most of my weekly family shopping at tesco online and frequently miss out on BOGOFs because the items weren't on the shelf, so they just send one, or much more expesnsive substitutions.
