    I think the Express & Star are being very sneaky with their front cover saying 5 off 40 at Tesco, I bought the paper only to find its an advert from tesco for their current promotion (which has been running for 2 weeks) so not a coupon at all.

    Surely this is false advertising I would'nt of bought the paper if i'd known, let me know what you guys think
  • Dr.Who-Who
    I don't think its the newspaper fault. They just do as they are told.

    Its the revenge of the "every little helps" for raiding their shop I bet they told the newspaper to advertise it and not to put "see inside for voucher" normally if there is a voucher, am sure the newspaper will print as :-

    5 off when you spend over 40 see page so & so for voucher & T&C. next time don't buy the paper, just go to the shop, flip over the page & if the voucher is there then only only you buy it.

    Dr Who Who,

    i'm sure your right, I saw that the express & star did a similar thing with an Asda advert last week, other papers dont do it though (the sun had a voucher for 5 off morrisons yesterday).
    In future i will have to check the paper before i buy, still feel i've been done but at least i could read about the Spurs win over the weekend!

    I too think it is false advertising. I bought the papaer as I think it rude to read a paper in the shop, it is NOT a paper I would normally purchase. It is in actual fact 5 off an 80 spend in my opinion. Who can we complaiin to??

    The ASA has found against Express Newspapers for the adverts which people thought were coupons:-
