I’ve already explained why I’m tescoffed with Tesco Clubcard Exchange. Now I’m being tesconfused by my pile of Tesco Clubcard vouchers. I received yet another envelope of Tesco Clubcard vouchers, two money off vouchers to get £3 deducted when I spend £30, plus an assortment of money off and bonus vouchers for specific products. I still had some of these product vouchers from the last batch. I decided to be strategic before I went to Tesco, to see if I could put some of the products for which I’d get discounts and extra points on my shopping list. Now I try to stick to only buying things I need, not falling into the trap of spending money in order to (supposedly) save money.
I identified Tesco Clubcard vouchers for two items I needed to buy; kiwi fruit and breaded fish. However the 35 pence off pre-packed kiwi fruit excluded Everyday Value kiwis and another voucher for 70 pence off breaded fish excluded frozen fish.
However, I did manage to redeem another voucher for 50 pence off when I spent £2 on natural yoghurt.
Quite honestly this is all such a fiddlly faff. Tesco must spend money printing and posting out these vouchers, which I believe could be better spend on some straighforward lower prices. It also leaves customers feeling frustrated when they’ve sought out certain items to save money and/or get extra Tesco Clubcard points, only to discover that the voucher isn’t valid for the exact item that they want to buy or the item’s temporarily out of stock.
