    Why don't you all forget the coupons, go to Tescos and buy BOGOf only products then go go elsewhere for the rest of your shopping? The USA is big on coupons but the supermarkets here don't seem to want to deal with them.

    Does anybody know if Tesco actually submit the coupons to the issuers for reimbursement? If they do then hammy's allegations of fraud would seem true, otherwise, if they're absorbing the cost themselves, it's up to them if they choose to take the hit.

    You are forgetting the third option, that Tesco has negotiated an agreement with the manufacturers (who issue these coupons) to accept them irrespective of whatever it says on the coupon. No manufacturer is going to want to get on the wrong side of their largest customer.

    i find your comments offensive,i went to school but not uni,does that make me uneducated? grow up,im also white and working class but in no way a chav. grow up.

    Sorry, derekacorah, I'm not sure which part offends you - the first paragraph was a direct reference to the wikipedia meaning for the word 'chav', not my own interpretation, and the second paragraph was opposing each of the wikipedia's examples of how society 'label's' somebody with my own personal background, thus showing battyman's sweeping comment and labelling to be incorrect.

    I don't think I said anywhere in my reply that any particular level of education labelled a person in any way at all, so I'm not really sure what I said that offends you so much that you feel I have to 'grow up'. :confused:

    I'd like to THANK keren for posting the definition of chav. Before I read it I was UNeducated, now I have been educated as to who is being described as chavs.

    Obviously some have no desire to learn anything new so will remain UNeducated for ever - not that that automatically makes them a chav, of course ;-)

    By the way, CHAV apparently comes from an old police call sign meaning 'Council House And Violent' (allegedly)

    I had trouble using coupons in Tesco the other day but managed to use a few in Asda, although I did have the staff member standing right behind me watching me put them in! lol

    Actually, probably 90% of all magazines supplied to a newsagent are sale or return, I should know as I am usually listing them up for return at 6am every morning.
    The only mags that are not are the very specialist ones such as the part works that you see on television just after xmas every year .. they are SOR for usually the first 5/6 parts and then revert to firm sale.
