I've contacted tesco, email address is [email protected], to ask why I've not received any green points for all the carrier bags I've handed back to the delivery driver over the months.
They've creditted me with 250 points, worth a tenner in deals.


Might be worth thinking about if Tesco owe you some green points :)


Please do this honestly and don't abuse it :)

:lol: Seriously, if we're greedy, Tesco could put a stop to it and that'll ruin it for everyone else. Claim if you're owed points, not out of greed :)

I assume the earlier post was removed? These things generally get abused so it'll probably be taken off again!

Nice one JB. We have handed hundreds of bags back to the driver as we get delivery once a week. Also ask them to save bags on items that dont need it. Will see how we get on!:thumbsup:

Thank you OP - I'm not going to phone and claim, however, I do have loads of bags that I keep forgetting to give back, so your post serves as a reminder to me!

How long until the points show and how many points do you get?

If I don't get the points after I have handed back loads of bags, then I shall phone and claim

Cheers

Just queried this with Tesco - who said there is no Clubcard credit for recycling their credit bags (very green of them). You must have got a trainee member of the call centre.

So this is a dead end..

I am afraid none:

If you choose to have your order delivered in bags, our delivery drivers will collect all your old carrier bags for re-cycling should you wish to do this. Sorry but we don't give Green Clubcard points for this service.

However, if you chose to have the order delivered without bags, we have
our Green Clubcard points scheme. This is a scheme where points are
awarded for using no bags when ordering online. The scheme runs alongside
that in store. One point for every bag reused in-store or one for
every 10 items online.


I assume you chose to deliver with bags as you have many of them at home ..

I have quite a few bags, as I often shop at Tesco physically myself, as well as on-line. It depends on how p~ss#d off I am at the quality of the fresh produce on my last delivery! If bad, I go myself next time, if it passes my satisfaction test, then I shop on line again (If I have a voucher code which covers delivery costs).

So simply if I shop on line - opt for no bags, and I'll get green points!

i simply get mine delivered without carrier bags and get green points that way. if i shop instore i have lots of bags for life/canvas bags i use, again you get points for this. if i forget my bags then i recycle the carriers i get given so no points for that but brownie points for being green!!

How come when you select 'no carrier bags' online shopping, they only give you one or two green pts, like your shopping would fit in just two bags!

I think as a general rule Tesco give you 1 green point for every £10 spent online.

Think its 1pt for every 10 items.

Personally, i find having the carrier bags far more useful as we use them for rubbish. For the sake of a few clubcard points, i'd much rather have a stack of free bin liners :thumbsup:

I think that defeats the whole object of being green!! The reason they don't give you bags is so that they don't go to landfill and take a thousand years to degrade. :-(
#17
Right so they haven't been crediting others,I couldn't figure why there was no green point on my statement come in this week,I usually hand back around a dozen carrier bags each shop.
Tesco pack silly,they put like 1 item in a bag which is light,like tin foil then other day I had a bag of potatoess plus 2 litres milk in same bag,which is too heavy.
I be giving them a call.

I still its upto to manufacturers to take the lead and create more environmentally products from packaging to cars. We 'the consumer' only use what they manufacture and then complain when its affecting the climate and consumers should do more to reduce their CO2 footprint. We can only reduce where we can but since its the manufacturers that are creating 'not environmentally products' then they should do more.

Think that's right although frozen and detergents etc always come in bags so you'll generally only get about 3-4 points per shop. But that's not the reason for doing it, it's so we save the planet etc.



You shouldn't get any points for returning bags to be recycled, would you expect points for putting them in the recylcing bin outside your local Tescos? It's not like you're reusing them is it???

i keep my bags and burn them in the garden, im trying to increase my carbon footprint

any particular reason?

And doesn't that just release the same amount of carbon just over a much shorter period?

I think he was pulling your leg.

By the way, tesco carrier bags are made with some sort of biodegradable mix, so it is not too bad to use them as bin liners. I used a few to store things in, and a couple of years later, I found them depleted and in brittles, with the contents all over the loft!

Tesco started about a year ago using totally biodegradable bags, only problem is that although they degrade they still release all their carbon into the air so it's not alot better really! Better not to produce them in the first place.

I selected no carrier bags, thinking of being green, and when my delivery was made - I have a family so quite a big order - the chap just stood at the door and waited for me to take my jars and items in one by one - and said I don't know why they have brought this in - it is taking twice as long to deliver! After that rather nasty experience I haven't tried again. I do try to recycle my bags though and use them as bin liners in the bathroom etc. I have never had a driver that has helped with bringing bags in - they always dump the crates at the door and go back for next load, whereas at least Ocado bring the bags into the kitchen (or at least offer).
