  • This is a big blow to be honest. I made a point of shopping at Morrison since with the card I could guarantee a regular voucher (generally about once a month) and they were price-matching with everyone, even Lidl and Aldi, so I knew I was getting the best possible deal. Now it's just another stupid loyalty card. My nectar card has been running for years and I've not seen a penny from them it seems.

    M&M was a great system too, with the voucher being given to you at the checkout - went straight in the wallet for next time. Tesco post out their vouchers and send you a 14pence price match voucher by email which they know you'll probably forget about.

    its a gimmick and only if you put receipt into the system

    You quoted me but obviously didn`t read me.
    APG is nothing to do with points.
  • Morrisons are treating customers with the same level of contempt they do when they let queues build up! Its my nearest shop but now they are building a Lidl between us and Morrisons.......no brainer.


    To remove the price comparison and go to a poor copy of clubcard just shows the trouble they are in. They will soon be losing the bulk of my supermarket business.


    Its a much much worse deal than the original model and we are back to their ABC card which failed badly. Wonder if they will drop the "match" from "match and more". Not sure "and more" rolls off the tongue :-)
  • Morrisons Match & More was a win-win for me. We have Morrisons, Lidl and Coop so no chance of shopping elsewhere.
    When the system changes we will be no worse off than before except that the points per litre dropped from 15 to 10 some time ago.
    We have £95 worth of vouchers collected up ready to spend at Christmas and we are likely to get another voucher before the system changes.

    It was good while it lasted :)

    Presumably they will have to rebrand all the cards as '_&more' otherwise they are breaking the trades description rules.....

    Edit: And I agree saying you are stopping price matching because your customers found it too complicated is contemptible. WE get enough of that sh*t from our politicians, do we really need it from our supermarkets?
    I think....

    I agree they are perfectly within their rights to change the scheme and it probably was too generous but the point is I simply don't believe them. As others have said it doesn't say a lot for their customers if they not only didn't understand but also told the company they were thick...

    I always shopped at Aldi and only went to Morrisons for things I couldn't get at Aldi or were not good quality 9n Aldi (their bananas are crap).

    Still managed to generate about £35 in vouchers over the last year. Based on the normal spend I do at the shop, it'll take me a good 10 months for each fiver now.

    They've axed it because they are to expensive. I've seen me make 3700 points in a single £20 shop, that's £3.70 more expensive than elsewhere.

    I have always defended Morrisons,saying they are very reasonable and have lots of offers and choice.


    But shopped there yesterday and I could not believe the number of items they have increased the price on!


    The worst was a box of their own brand decongestants which I buy regularly as I get a lot of sinus problems and they work well.I used to pay 65p for a box of 12.Yesterday they had gone up to £1 a box !! That is about a 55% increase!!


    I don't mind the change in the points system as much as I hate the drastic jump in so many items.I thought they kept telling us that the cost of food items are still falling.I still prefer them to Tesco but I am tempted to shop at tescos more often now.

    I agree with Froglet. Before defecting (largely) to Aldi, Morrisons was my choice - both for variety, quality (their meat has always been excellent) and price. I now use Morrisons like I use Waitrose or M&S, for top-up shopping, but I agree that Morrison's prices seem to be rising and Tesco is starting to look like better value (which is a horrible though as I really dislike Tesco).
