    "Think of the thread as a tree, many branches to it, and not all of us,
    need all the branches, but we do need the tree!" - midwinter



    THE FOLLOWING IS COPIED FROM ORIGINAL FIRST POST ON PREVIOUS THREAD

    This is yet another bargain/glitch/DTD/JTD/misprice thread!

    We know it's in the 'Gone But Not Forgotten' section!

    No, not all of what we say is Tesco related or even of interest to many others but this is the way this thread has formed.

    Many of us want to discuss the various deals to be had but this was not appreciated on the main Grabbit forum. As such, we now use this thread to talk about anything. We also discuss ex-husbands and wives, kids and animals. If you have a medical problem we'll nag you until you go to the Doctor. If you're not feeling well we'll provide support, a wee hot drink and whatever chocolate is currently glitching to cheer you up.

    Some people try to obscure the store names but this works both ways. It might make it difficult for those who don't have the time to sit here and natter all day but it also makes it difficult for staff/managers to quickly identify any issues at their store.

    Please put all your finds in bold with LAST 4 DIGITS OF barcode and photo if possible so we can chat & still speed read for bargains. We don't like arguing so we're not going to take umbrage if one or two deals slip through.

    Now sit back, relax and feel free to join in. We don't bite (unless you ask nicely), we will help wherever possible and you don't have to post new deals just to feel like part of the group.

    0330 123 4055

    LINK TO TESCO CUSTOMER SERVICE
    https://www.tescohelp.com/tesco/forms/cs_form.html

    TESCO HEAD OFFICE EMAIL
    If you still have a valid problem that can't be resolved by the store or head office here is the e-mail address of the chief executive - please use it wisely!
    dave.lewis@uk.tesco.com

    TESCO INSTORE PRICE CHECK POINTS
    Many Tesco stores have barcode scanners attached to the wall so that you can check the price of something (don't always trust what it says on the SEL)
    This thread lists some known examples:
    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=3539593&highlight=tesco+scanner+l
    Please do not leave items by the scanners!!! Please do not give the staff extra work by leaving your unwanted scanned items - stores will be loathe to repair or replace scanners if they make extra work for staff!

    TESCO INSTORE STOCK CHECKER
    Handy for checking stock in your area before heading out
    0800 505 555 option 1. (thanks zippy)

    1P ITEMS IN TESCO
    When items in Tesco go beyond the last stage of clearance they are reduced to 1p (typically out of season goods such as xmas goods in February, Valentines goods in March, etc)
    This is the link to the daily mail article regarding 1p finds:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1314395/Tesco-shoppers-flock-bargains-sale-just-1p.html#axzz2jgpacct4

    TESCO OVERCHARGE POLICY (DTD)
    If you are overcharged in Tesco their policy is to give you back twice as much as you overpaid (Double the Difference)
    This applies to all Tesco stores including Express.
    The policy is displayed on a blue board (usually behind CS) under the heading "If things don't add up"
    Staff are notoriously bad at honouring this policy. Excuses such as "the offer expired", "it doesn't apply to electricals", etc will be tried on but are not valid defences.
    If offered a refund instead of DTD do not accept it, instead just leave the store and contact Head Office.

    ASDA'S OVERCHARGE POLICY
