View Full Version : Do you think Tesco.com are being sneaky?

Just doing my online food shop. It says 2 for 5 on multipacks of mullerlights, but its only 2.00 for one so that means they are overcharging you by a 1 if you buy two! Also 2 for 2 on melons but they have put the prices up anyway for one compared to last month!

According to last weeks watchdog programme its common practice :headache:

Ooh, that's a bit naughty !!

Was just going to say the same as Nat - according to that Watchdog this kind of thing happens all the time. :headache:

I think that is absolutely unforgivable. I would be right to customer service demanding a refund and an appology. If they don't want my business they can shove their 2 for 5. Ridiculous!!:mad:

I've just been to my local Tesco and they have the same offer there. As there was a manager about I asked him why it was advertised and he told me that one of the special flavours did indeed cost more than 2.50. He also assured me that if 2x the individual price was lower than the offer price then I would be charged the lower price at the till.

I didn't check it out (no pun intended) for myself though, so I've only got his word for it.

Ah right, thanks Libby, I wonder what the special flavour is? :confused3

My mum is insisting I check my receipts when I go instore as they have been overcharging her - i.e for 2 bags of apples instead of one and sometimes it can add up to a fiver, can you imagine how much that adds up to with millions of shoppers each week?

Sneaky supermarkets!

My local Tesco had white chocolate yogurt with a raspberry corner but they were the normal Muller. Seemed rude not to try one so it's now sitting in my fridge. :goodvibes

Individual ones were 8 for 2.

I went to TESCO today and the same 6 packs of yogurt are now labelled 2.90 or 2 for 5. I didn't check my receipt on Tuesday to see how much I was really charged for 1 pack!!!

I always check my receipts. I would say that I find a mistake on one receipt per month. A couple of weeks ago I handed over a 4 off voucher and the girl forgot to scan it. A few months ago, I was charged for two bottles of brandy, rather than the one that I had bought.:scared1: I have also bought things on 'offer' to find that the offer (like BOGOF) has not been applied.

I am obsessive about checking my receipts!:rotfl:
