    Shame its only inshore and not for online orders

    Hello Mrs XXXXXX,


    Last week, we told you about the launch of Clubcard Prices. Itís one of the things weíre doing to celebrate 100 years of great value at Tesco Ė and a special treat to thank you for being a Clubcard customer.


    Clubcard Prices are great discounts that you can only get when you use your Clubcard. Theyíre available right now on a whole range of products.


    To access the Clubcard Prices in-store, just download the app and scan it (or tap your card) at the till. If you shop online, the discounts will be taken off and will show on your final customer delivery note


    Thanks again for shopping at Tesco Ė and for being a Clubcard customer.


    Every little helps


    Your Clubcard team

    The more you think about this the more ludicrous it becomes.

    To enable me to find prices in Tesco that might possibly compete with those in Aldi or Lidl I have to download the Clubcard app or log into the website?

    Why would I bother?

    I noticed during a visit to Tesco last night that they are now selling Jacks branded items in the store.

    We do not have a Jacks store anywhere near here, and the Tesco I went to has a Lidl next door so I can kind of understand why they're trying this, but...

    1) It's confusing. All these Jacks items were together on one aisle. The other things on that aisle were gardening items, outdoor toys and a few reduced non-food odds and ends.So if you wanted crisps or lemonade you would not find the Jacks versions because they weren't on the crisp/fizzy drink aisles.

    2) It's confusing. Tesco used to have three own brands - value, normal and finest. Then they replaced value with a load of made up brand names. They also seem to have introduced some fake brand names for standard items. Now they have the Jacks brand in the mix too. It's much more confusing than Lidl where there is usually just one version of each product, occasionally two versions.

    I don't go to Tesco often these days, but every time I do I come away wondering what exactly their strategy is.

    I've seen this too - Jack's isn't, I hear, going too well for them. Maybe they're having to shift some of the Jack's branded stuff into the main stores to get rid of it!

    I suspect this little venture will soon go the way of the Sainsbury's Netto gamble.

    You can't out-Aldi Aldi! Or Lidl.

    Yes - my Tesco also has an aisle they call The Market (or something similar) which has a random selection of non-food items. I suspect they're trying to imitate the middle aisle of Aldi/Lidl and at the same time shift a load of non food that's left in their warehouses after they closed the Tesco Direct website down. But unlike Aldi/Lidl it's not a good selection and there are no particular bargains.

    It is fair to say that this Tesco is next door to a Lidl which opened last year. Since Lidl opened, Tesco has not been as busy. I guess they have to try different things, but for me Lidl is not just about lower prices. The store seems cleaner, easier to navigate and despite only having a few checkouts compared to Tesco has shorter queues. I suspect that if the pricing structure was reversed, i.e. Tesco became the cheaper of the two, I would still shop at Lidl because I prefer the store and range to Tesco.

    I have a Tesco and lidl equal distance away, I haven't used Tesco (except for petrol) since Lidl opened, much nicer store and first thing in the morning I can do a shop door to door in 20 mins which as a man who hates shopping and other people this is a bonus. Great value for money esp the veg.

    As an aside, I saw Sainsbury's advert celebrating 150 years yesterday evening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TO8i7W7dcI

    A much better creative effort than Tesco's; if it were a war of image then Sainsbos would win hands down.

    Tesco Clubcard Products
    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 havenít read anywhere that vouchers are needed (unless iím 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!

    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 itís 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.

    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!

    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.
