Tesco clubcard vouchers
First of all let me apologise for shopping at Tesco. I realise that this makes me a bad man who has systematically destroyed my local high street.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way…
Yesterday me and the missus had a slap up lunch at Café Rouge (apologies again) and paid for it with clubcard reward vouchers.
So, £15 in vouchers pays for a £60 bill. Presumably this is worth everyone’s while. I get a practically free lunch and Tesco get my continued custom (sorry again), but how do Café Rouge make anything on this? All that I paid for with real money was the wine (house red – sorry) and the tip.Posted 4 years ago
I assume that Cafe rouge charge this out to tesco at near cost, therefore benefiting from increased footfall and turnover, and maybe repeat custom from first timers (if it’s good) They make money on anything else you might buy too. Wine etc.
If you’ve got £15 of clubcard vouchers you’ve spent £1500 at Tesco, so they can absorb the cost of the meal, and give you a 3% rebate essentially on your shopping.Posted 4 years agoTraceySubscriber
Used them for swapping for years, had holidays abroad, weekends away, use them every year for the chunnel for our Alps trip. Also had cameras and phones for the girls when stuff is on offer.
A few years ago they had an offer on Vinasol wine at £7.00 a bottle at the time we were looking for a half term family holiday. If you bought a bottle you got £7.00 of clubcard points. Kevin did the sums and we ended up with 20 cases in the garage. gave us £840 of clubcard points he also used a double clubcard points voucher at the checkout. We swapped the points at 1 for 4 when you could pay for a full holiday with them. [think they have a limit on the amount now] It paid for a two week all inclusive family holiday in Egypt.

Tesco bought all the presents for my kids this year. Can’t remember the exact figures but we got near on £200 worth of toys and things for some doubled up clubcard points and about £4 cash to top up.
We just kept adding things to the basket online, there were also 2 for £15 or £30 offers in there too so it was a proper bargain.
I, too, know I am evil for shopping at Tesco and not spending my money driving between all the local farm shops…but they bought all my kids presents!! 🙂Posted 4 years ago
It’s the self-service checkouts that they have in Tesco instead of actual people on checkouts that puts me off.
Like all massive chains (Costa, Maccy D’s, etc) they’re perceived to be evil but they still employ a lot of local people. when they start to blatantly cut back on that one redeeming feature I get narky about it.
Still, you can’t knock saving money, eh?Posted 4 years agototalshellSubscriber
dont for one minute think that tesco are paying for your free lunch in any way. the entire cost is borne by the third party.
the scheme was once very lucrative 5 years ago when the deal was 4 for 1 and the range of products available much larger.
we used to take a fortnights holiday in the south of france ( usually with pierre et vacances)paid in full other than the deposit with vouchers..
i use a tesco credit card for all my personal and business purchases and with a typical monthly bill being 10-12k the points rack up very quickly indeed.. pizza express is a sure fire faourite, try the xmas pork pizza)Posted 4 years agofasthaggisMember
I don’t understand how the Clubcard works.
You have to become a slave to Tesco Dez ,and do as much or all of your shopping there,harvesting all those clubcard point deals.Get one of their credit cards and you get points where ever you shop.
If you don’t want them I will have them* 🙂

Yep, Tesco users here – Got a few hundred quids worth of Topps tiles vouchers this summer which bought all the tiles for our house re-firb.
We’ve had a holiday out of them, loads of family days out, and Ask Pizza vouchers.
I buy all my fuel at Tesco (£200+ per month) which helps…Posted 4 years agodrslowMember
The self service did away with 2 maybe 3 checkouts. They now have people with big signs pointing to short queues!! I think staff just got redistributed, plus they need someone to monitor the self scan, plus the delivery drivers for home delivery and no doubt they’ve opened another Tesco a few miles away. Cant see how jobs have been lost.Posted 4 years ago
Cant see how jobs have been lost.
maybe it’s a trial. our local Tesco plan to install 3 times as many of these things over the next year or so, I’m led to believe.
I can’t see how the same shift patterns and staffing levels will be maintained after that.
Still, as long as we’re all getting our vouchers who gives a shit eh?Posted 4 years agosimmySubscriber
My local Tesco used to be a Co op which was demolished and the new Tesco built. All the staff from the Co OP are still there and they find them a good employer.
I could get loads of vouchers but I won’t put their fuel in as a colleague had his car go faulty through their Diesel. A mate of mine works in the Fuel Station and she says fair enough then, but let’s not start a debate on that 😉
Another former neighbour works on the fruit and veg section and, if I time it right, he reducing prices around this time of day, got my Tea for 30 p a while ago, full pasta salad and fruit pot…..Posted 4 years agoblastitSubscriber
tesco pay very very close to the living wage.. £7.45 is quoted by the joseph roundtree foundation and tesco std pay is £7.35.. as the countries largest employer thats not a bad record
Since when did paying less than a living wage become something to applaud?
