Tesco / www.MoneySavingExpert.com

Postby frv » Thu Mar 12, 2009 12:17 pm

No money saving forum should be without a mention of Martin Lewis's www.MoneySavingExpert.com
I use this site daily and the best thing I use at the moment is the list of printable Money Off Coupons, found at http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho ... ?t=1427529
I use these coupons every time I shop at Tesco's to get money off my regular shopping. You DO NOT have to buy the product at most Tesco's. Last month I used £150 worth.
Depending on the store, you can use multiple coupons, just hand them over and if they scan, the money comes off your bill. :D

Could you explain this to me as I don't really get it. (sorry not sharpest crayon in the pencil case).
You just print vouchers off and take them into Tesco?
Cheers.

Here we go!
I print of money off coupons (MOC's) from the internet and find any other's that might be on product packaging or in newspapers and magazines, etc.
I then go to Tesco's armed with my MOCs and do a shop. At the checkout I hand over my MOC's and depending on the store's policy, get that amount of money off my shopping. You can easily get £5 off but I have had over £20 on many occasions. Some die hard couponers regularly only pay pennies for their shopping and get £40+ off. For eample, last week in The Star they had a £5 off a £30 shop at Lidl. Tesco take these competitor coupons (Morissons, Farm Foods, etc.) off your shopping bill as well as long as it's not for anything specific. I bought some wine this weekend plus a few other things which came to £39 before BOGOF's, 3 for £10, etc. and £31 after BOGOF's. With my £14.80 of MOC's that I handed over I only paid just over £16 for 6 bottles of wine + the rest. I have been using MOC's as cash for 11 months and have used over £1700 worth in that time, not to mention all the extra clubcard points offers I take up (£150 in last mailing). Hope that helps and good luck!

Ah. Cheers for that. Personally, I wouldn't have thought the store would take just ordinary printed copies of vouchers.

It's a bit useless for me at the moment because I don't have a printer. Well, actually I do but it's ancient and I can't get it to work under XP or Vista. Maybe I could try at work.
Cheers.

It's never been a problem for me - they take my ordinary pieces of paper off me :lol: - most of mine are printed off at work :oops:
Some of the MOC's are what they call Couponnet.co.uk or SafeCoupons so the store will definitely be reimbursed. The fact that Tesco take them off your shopping even if you haven't bought the item is their national policy and it's up to the manufacturer who does these promotions to police it. As long as Tesco stock the product they can get the money back plus a handling fee (2p I think) so they are quids in and we save money.
I went in last night as I had a till split (you know - one of those extra coupons that come off with your receipt) for £5 off a 15 pack of Strongbow. They are currently on offer for £10.00 so I handed over the £5 off, 3 x £1 internet printed coupons (that's the limit in my local store) and a 25p off Nestle cereal that I had cut off a cereal box, making it £1.75 for 15 cans of cider - bargain! :D
Good luck

I could SO go for Strongbow right now. Definitely, my 'bow time.

Cheers for that, I'll try and give them a bash.

wtf! I spoke to the Mrs about this last night and are you sure you can get the voucher off even if you dont have the item. I go there most lunch times and this would save me a fortune. I'm tempted to ask at customer service on their policy.
