    Tesco wrong prices thread part 4 - please post your finds here 24th Aug 05 at 3:51 PM
    This is a continuation of the original Tesco Wrong Prices thread here as once again it was getting rather long and it was getting very hard to spot the bargains amongst the off topic discussion.

    This thread is for only posting incorrect prices that you spot in Tesco's supermarkets. Any discussions on the policy should be put in the Discussion Time thread that you will find here. Thanks

    Yes I got some red leicester today, they had re-labelled the products all but one or two, and it just so happens that these found there way into my trolley. Now what was the probability of that happening !!!! :rolleyes: :confused:

    I suppose that's true but it seems to be taking them an awful long time to get a label back on the shelf, hit them for some beef 4 days ago and still no label there.

    I have concerns about the relabelling of some produce, I have noticed that when relabelling the recalculation process does not seem to be carried out and that the original price is still stated, this in itself is an offence, also date coding is obscured on many occasions. So effectively countering one offence with two newly committed offences!

    Every little helps! But Tesco it seems could do with a little more help in they're staff training programmes.

    Cheers ben500, I'm looking at the right product then but unfortunately they don't seem to put out a sticker for £2.03, the one dispalyed is £2.71 drat and double drat. What is the real price £2.03 or £2.71 per kg does anyone actually know ? This calls for a visit to the tesco store locator !!

    No 'goodies'
    Just back from Quesnferry Tesco in Edinburgh and also Costorphine Road in Edinburgh. Neither had anything with invalid pricing from this thread anythoo.

    Also, KT Tunstall CDs were marked at 9.77 at all three stores I was at today.

    The gammon shelf price has been removed from Bathgate where I was earlier. today.
    ... and that's all I have to say about that.

    If £2.03 is the real price per Kg then Tesco's deserve a jolly good thrashing because they are removing the stickers with the right price and relying on the incorrect price on the product of £2.71. They are blantantly mis-pricing there products, and as a result the difference between prices between stores for the same item is bound to happen even though it should not.
  • phyllis13
    Did you say the REAL price of the fresh whole ducks was £2.03 per kg?
    I picked up two of them on Saturday morning at the misprice and got the refund after pointing out the pack price was £2.71 per kg.
    Went back on Sunday morning and the shelf price had become £2.71 per kg to match the pack price!
    Are Tesco pulling a fast one?
  • jude123
    just checked the website and it does actually say £2.71kg

    No, they aren't. As long as the shelf price and the pack price are the same then there is no offence being committed and Tesco are behaving correctly :confused:

    Good shop today.Got two ducks priced £1.23 per pound on pack and 92p on the shelf.Very chuffed as it's my daughters birthday this week so we'll have a lovely treat for her birthday dinner!Refunded over £13.
    Ver nice lady on customer services apologised for the wait several times and even joked that I should have bought some more to put in the freezer !
    Also got some 65p birds eye beef for the extra points.It has not been available for my last 2 shops.
    I'm definately getting sad aren't I ,if a trip to Tescos can make my day!
