£10 cheaper yes, but 50% less quality, IMO.

Also be prepared to be totally embarrassed at Tesco when they tell you they don't accept them! You will have several supervisors crowd around you shaking their heads and be made to feel like a criminal + lots of tutting from others in the queue which will build up while they are belittling you :x Don't get me wrong a lot do accept them but even at these stores the quality of staff varies so you must be prepared to argue the toss!

Take the coupon and go to Waitrose and enjoy your shopping experience, maybe more expensive on some items but overall a totally different experience :thumbsup:
#8
your best off having a little less and better food than buying cheap tesco meat especially mince which is only good for cat food :)
or shop at Ocado then you realise the differance in home delivery serivces
#9
The worst joint of meat I have ever had was from Waitrose, so not always perfect as people seem to think, hopefully this was a one off!
#10
or if you are spenging £100 use 2 vouchers to get £20 off shop and so on ,waitrose is not that much better,no harm in saving a few quid ,as for going to waitrose for an enjoyable shopping experience whatever

But did you go back and complain? whenever we have any problems the customer services are brilliant, usually get money back and a replacement, have had double money back and replacement in the past and never any fuss or refer to a manager.
#12
tesco take all competitor additional spend coupons for supermarkets although im not sure if waitrose is on the list

YES THEY WILL
PLUS ANY FARM FOOD VOUCHERS YOU HAVE
#15
Yes, Waitrose is expensive but the quality is (usually) great and the staff are always friendly. I love Waitrose, don't mind spending a bit more.
#16
is there a link to tesco website to confirm this? so i can print and take in so i dont look like an idiot?

Cheers

My Tesco has said they no longer accept Farm Food vouchers. That's really annoying.

Agreed, I tried in 2 local Tescos with Farmfood vouchers and they insisted that they do not take them, as it's only their 'main' competitors, such as Asda, Sainsbury, Waitrose. I did have luck with either an Aldi or Lidl voucher though.

As a devoted HUKD member, I have no sense of loyalty towards any particular retailer/supermarket chain, and I would always consider best value/quality for money I spend! :thumbsup:

In fact, the only items you can argue that their quality are different, are the store's own brand ones, otherwise branded goods are the same quality wherever you buy them. And those store's own brand items are also - in many cases - locally prepared/made and are store depended even within the same chain! like store's bakery, fishmonger, butcher, etc.

If you feel that way, but branded products from Tesco.
E.g. Cadbury is Cadbury whether it is from Tesco or Waitose.

I was in Tesco Corstorphine earlier and the woman said I could use Sainsbury's and Farmfoods vouchers only! She didn't seem very sure though, so I'm wondering if anyone knows what Tesco's set rules are for accepting competitor's vouchers. Like a previous post asked, can we print anything off to take in?

Cheers

Yes...have used WAITROSE and SAINSBURYs vouchers...but Farmfoods??? Keep getting the leaflets with many £2.50 off if you spend £25 in Farmfoods but never ventured to try them in Tesco's mainly because they have NO BARCODES and will not 'scan' (self service or till). How do Tesco's enter them? Must be a puzzle for the checkout operator/ supervisor combi??? :oops: Heat added to OP.

"Martin's" used to have a "we will accept any coupon" column but this is the latest (October 2009):

http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/news/shopping/2009/10/tesco-outlaws-wrong-item-vouchers

Tesco usually have a sign up at Customer Services and in the car park as you drive in stating "We accept Competitor's Coupons" (usually showing Sainsburys £6 off £60 etc). Be aware 'though that 50p off a six pack of Heinz Beans will now have to be...6 pack of Heinz Beans (as opposed to anything else). ;-)

I've posted about this before and been shot down in flames.

I had a lot of issues in Tesco when attempting to use competitors vouchers, such as Farmfoods, Sommerfields etc.

I complained to Tesco CS who said that it was "at the managers discretion". I asked them to clarify what this meant but got nowhere, so I e-mailed Sir Terry.

Here is the response from the top ...

Dear XXX

Thank you for replying to my colleague's email. As YYY is currently out of the office, I have been asked t reply on her behalf.

I was concerned to learn that you had been unable to redeem your Farmfoods conditional spend coupons which visiting our ZZZ Extra store. I can understand why you are so disappointed and would like to offer my sincere apologies.

As explained by YYY, all our stores should accept our competitors coupons, as long as our customer has met the qualifying spend, as displayed on the coupon. Although I appreciate that you have been given several different reasons explaining that stores should decline such coupons, I can assure you that this is certainly not the case.

To ensure that the points raised in your email were dealt with appropriately, I brought the details of your complaint to the attention of AAA BBB, our Store Manager at ZZZ.

AAA has asked me to pass on his apologies for the unacceptable standard of customer care you had received. He has promised to address this regrettable incident with his Management Team, and with his cashiers, carrying out further training where necessary to ensure you do not experience any further problems of nature.

While I appreciate that there is little I can say to alleviate the disappointment and inconvenience that has already been caused, by way of an apology, I have arranged for a £10.00 Tesco Moneycard to be sent to you. I hope you will accept this gesture with my compliments and best wishes.

Once again, I am very sorry. I do hope that we may continue to look forward to your valued custom and that you will give us an opportunity to restore your confidence in our operations.

Kind Regards


CCC
Customer Service Executive

Tesco policy changed about 3 months ago THEY NO LONGER TAKE COMPETITOR NEWSPAPER VOUCHERS!

All they take is til printed vouchers such as the ones sainsburys print sometimes when you use nectar card. DO NOT TRY - YOU WILL WASTE YOUR MONEY.

I tried and they refused - whih they never did before. They alwayse USED to take them but not anymore.
#30
So, they stated that my store manager got a rocket. I have this printed in the glove box of my car and do not expect any issues next time I have a competitors voucher!

They really do try and palm you off with crap excuses. The best I heard was that Morrisons refund them the face value of the voucher but Farmfoods didn't. Hmmm, think not.

The policy change I read about on MSE was regarding product specific vouchers no longer being accepted. No mention of conditional spend vouchers unsure, but as WalterSmith had posted, they seem to have a policy of taking competitors conditional spend vouchers, just doesn't seem to have been communicated to stores.
#33
we use the farmfoods vouchers in our tescos which is near farmfoods with no questions asked every time and also they accept them off the price of non-food items which i was really chuffed with(well the wife was more so) :thumbsup:
#34
My local Tesco have a notice in store saying they take Sainsburys £x off a £y spend type vouchers.

I totally agree.
In any case for most products i think Tesco are very expensive. They have one product Youngs wild salmon in the freezer dept for £9.99 that they keep reducing every other month to £4.99. Amazing offer as its £3.84 in Asda all the time! (or £3.99 in sainsburys)

Take your point, but if you take meat, they have taken much more trouble to ensure its quality / taste / welfare. Even if the latter is not a major concern there is a very close link to taste, as stress for instance before slaughter will cause meet to be tougher. Morrisons buy their meat on the open market rather than through farmer relationships, so its quality will be much more variable and unknown, although have price advantage alot of the time.

The budget brand (ie essentials, smartprice, basics etc etc) obviously vary enormously between supermarkets, so comparions for tv adverts are totally meaningless. In fact waitrose budget range is probably as good as tesco finest. I wouldn't give asda smartprice to my dog, no wonder all their baskets are cheaper!
