    I went to my local Tesco in Finchley Central and wanted to purchase a jar of coffee at the Clubcard price. Although the coffee was advertised on the shelf as being one of the discounted products, it was not discounted at the till. The Supervisor said that I needed a voucher in addition to my Clubcard. I only had my Clubcard. To date I have not received any vouchers for the discounted prices. As I haven’t read anywhere that vouchers are needed (unless i’m going blind), can someone please clarify.

    This is not correct. I bought a couple of jars of the coffee using my clubcard and the discount was applied automatically at the till. Obviously the discount was not applied until I scanned my clubcard. So initially the cashier said "That's £xx.xx please" then when I scanned my card the price reduced. Did this assistant actually scan your clubcard?

    I picked up the Maltesers yesterday (the only thing I was remotely interested in!) and the discount came of as soon as my Clubcard was swiped.

    There was no sign on the shelf indicating the Clubcard discount though, so if I hadn't researched beforehand, I would have had no idea a discount was due.

    I think this whole promotion is pretty poor to be honest - there's what, about 30 special prices? And mostly on the same product types: coffee, cat food, toilet roll? *insert unimpressed emoji*

    I've had 2 deliveries over the weekend, including products that were supposed to be at the promotional 'Clubcard Prices' - no discounts were taken off at all - what a load of rubbish!

    Make your own Pot Noodles using a flower pot, sawdust and some old shoe laces. Pour in boiling water, stir then allow to stand for two minutes before taking one mouthful, and throwing away. Just like the real thing!

    Looking more and more like yet another confidence trick by tricky old Tesco to try to cover over the hard fact that their prices are still much higher than Aldi and Lidl.

    And it’s not working.

    Indeed. This only makes customers stop using their stores, people don't like to be misled. Tesco are expensive and if they also mislead customers by offering discounts which they are not providing, people walk, out of principle. We bought several items and used our clubcard yet got zero discounts back; gotta be wrong, yes?

    I shop where the deals are these days; over the weekend we went to Tesco, Asda, Lidl and M&S. We bought nothing at M&S as no deals good enough, Tesco really for bread and herbs as other items too expensive, Lidl for a few items and the bulk at Asda who are good on their prices and have excellent choices of items.

    No, it isn't working.
    I haven't been to Tesco for ages and certainly not while this so-called promotion has been running.
    Today I got notified that my Clubcard vouchers are ready, whoopee-doo. I've been saving them and still I've only got around a tenner in almost two years! :o
    (I do buy some kids uniform stuff there.)

    I went to Tesco (St Neots Extra) on Saturday and wanted to buy some wild Alaskan salmon. This is more expensive than farmed but really delicious.

    However having decided which piece I wanted, which was to be about half a side I was told I couldn't buy it and could only buy the end bits they had.


    To say I was flabbergasted would be an understatement but was told that these were 'the rules'. I didn't buy any.

    I have failed to see any great savings from this so-called centenary celebration.

    Sainsburys, on the other hand planned their celebrations well. There wasn't a huge give-away, but the campaign was clear and incentives were proportionate.
