Tesco today pledged to introduce Buy One Get One Free Later

Customers using Buy One Get One Free Later will be able to pick up their free product when they need it, helping to keep waste down.

For the next two weeks, customers buying selected fruit and salad items will be able to claim the same product free the following week.

Customers really like our buy-one-get-one-free deals but feedback shows smaller households sometimes can't use the free product before its use by date, says Lucy Neville-Rolfe, Tescos executive director.

Now we're giving customers the flexibility to take advantage of the great value offer by claiming their free product the following week instead.

Customers buying eligible items will be given a voucher at the till. They can then use this voucher to get another pack of the product for free the following week.

Good idea:thumbsup:
#3
yup I would take advantage of this offer. Thanks
#4
Good idea, but I'd probably forget to take the voucher with me the following week!
#5
great idea
#6
Great idea. I hope more supermarkets do this.
banned#7
lol, should of posted this - was in the news from a couple of days ago!
Not a bad idea but half the people will forget to pick up the second item meaning Tesco save themselves money...

This is exactly why the supermarket have decided to start this offer, instead of say 100% of people getting the buy one get one free on the day..... say only 95% may remember to collect it over the next week meaning tesco make a 5% saving because they can sell on the other products ( if that makes sence, sure i could have put it better lol )
#9
love it, one for up for supermarkets and 50% plus will either lose or forget vouchers:w00t:
#10
Very cynical scheme. If they really wanted to reduce wastage they would just reduce the price for one.

You cant trust supermarket marketing departments.

You are deluded. They should be reducing the price for one not doing this stupid voucher scheme.
#12
But you can still get the BOGOF same day if you don't want to wait a week?
#13
Okay so the thing with me is I often pick up an items thats on BOGOF and dont realise and just have the one thing. Does this mean when you get to the till they will automatically issue you with a voucher for the other item that I didnt even realise I should be having for free??!!
If so this is great :thumbsup:

#15

I'd like to think so, but somehow I doubt it!

Seems a great idea in theory, especially for someone like my elderly parents who are always popping into our local branch but I tend to only go when I really have to, ie. the cupboards are resembling those of Old Mother Hubbard and I'm certainly not going to go two weeks in a row.

Leaving aside the fact that, yes, lowering the price of one would be better because lets face it, its never going to happen. Carry home weight and storage space will also come into play here. Being able to stagger those things while still getting a discount must be a good thing, surely?

A good thing for Tesco yes - they have comitted you to coming back the following week, unless you lose the voucher in the meantime

I understand they sell more volume by forcing peole to buy 2, but in the main, if its that good a deal at 1/2 price most people would buy 2 anyway. Maybe if it was 1/2 price instead of BOGOF they would buy 3?:p
#19
First of all clearly not about keeping waste down, second I don't think it's solely about making profit of people losing or forgetting their vouchers, that does not present high profits.
I think it is mostly to get costumer loyalty and let's face it if you go to pick up your item on a later date you will end up doing some more shopping there and that is where they intend to make the extra profits imo.

As said above they should just lower the prices if really their intention is to lower waste...
#20
Agree with others, they should just halve the price if they really want to cut down on waste.
Just another way to make sure you shop with them each week, you'll feel compelled to go back to use the vouchers.
There will also be those who love to shop aorund and will make special journeys just for the offers, great for the environment.:oops:
#21
WOW! It's amazing, no one's thinking for themselves but the supermarkets!

Lets think of it from a customer point of view.

lets say you buy eggs or biscuits or even milk on a BOGOF. Being a small family we would never use both the items in the same week or week and a half but extend the same amount of money and the same amount of goods for two to three weeks and voila! We save so much money and be able to use the product for longer and don't waste the food and harm the environment.

Yes on the face of it it looks like a win win for the supermarket but its not too bad for the customer either, just keep the receipt and the voucher in the car when you get out and when you go back the next time you always have the voucher with you and never loose it!

I admit I loose half my vouchers or forget to claim but its better than the stuff going down the drain, isn't it?

Sorry but I'd still rather they just reduced the price for one. Much simpler and reduces wastage.
#24
I did not see this post earlier, but can confirm that yesterday I was given a voucher at the till after I bought a fruit salad which happended to be reduced to 20p. Would have though should not work for reduced items but it did!!
#25
I'd probably forget the voucher the next time I go in..It's just a way to make you go to the store twice and spend more.

What happens if the second time you go in, they don't have the item you want (eg it's out of stock)
#26
Across the board, ASDA is so much cheaper ... speaking as someone who shops at all supermarkets in rotation picking up the offers at each.

Of course it's about getting us through their doors but I'm guessing that, whatever the initial reaction is, that in the cold light of day and after a few coupons have gone out of date in people's pockets this ploy will turn people off.

If they halved the price instead some would buy 3 instead of 2. However, I suspect the reality is they don't really want us to buy these products at all as they are loss-leaders, but to get us in and spending money on other stuff.

But I could make equivalant savings if the goods were half price couldn't I:?

I would only have to visit the shop once and if I didn't like or fancy another item the same, I'm not buying one just for it to go to waste.

Agree with Shirley999 - I don't use Tesco very ofetn but when I have I do think they are quite expensive.

I bet they soon fix this glitch!
#29
what about items that you don't realise are BOGOF - you get a voucher at the till as a reminder :)
#30
To those who say they would forget to take the voucher the next week - you are given the voucher while you have your purse or wallet in your hand - WHY NOT PUT IT STRAIGHT IN YOUR PURSE OR WALLET!!!!! Then next week - there it is, when you need it. :thumbsup:

I don't have a wallet.... or a purse. ;-)
#32
I think it is a good idea. Most BOGOFs are not available every week, so essentially if you get one at full price and then another free a week or two later then you are essentially getting two items at half price. If they did the suggested alternative which would be to half the price, you could buy one at half price one week and go a week or two later and it may be back up to full price. You may say, buy two on your first visit, but the point of this promo is mainly for short life products when two may not last long enough to use them both.

As if the queues arent big enough already at tesco tills! Now we're gonna have people rooting around in their bags for long lost vouchers!
#34
I used this earlier in the week with some fresh pineapple chunks, a voucher was printed with my receipt which I can exchange next week
#35
Christ people are actually voting this hot...

Exactly. Total con for simple people.
#37
Good deal for me.
Don't know why some people expect supermarkets to operate as though they are some sort of extension of the welfare state. They are there to supply goods and make a profit.

bofog deals are a bonus, however if its milk / bread or the like you never use both in the space of a week when theres only two of you in the house, this lets you get 1/2 price milk/bread/etc 2 weeks in a row.

Quoted for the truth, voted hot.
#39
I know I wouldn't remember to bring the voucher with me. And if I forget it, I'll most likely be forced to buy another of the same product, which I see as a waste of my money, and profit for Tesco. Either that or it would go missing or get crumpled up and ripped, I carry enough cards and cash around with me all the time!

Technically this is a waste of paper and ink. It's not wasting the food/product as you will be going back to get it anyway whether it's now or later. And if you forget, then really you have sort of lost out and Tesco has gained.

Also, I can imagine these offers will be causing uproar with customers if they try to come back for the second product, and argue that they have lost their voucher or it's not in redeemable condition. Oh I can see it now!

Don't like this idea myself at all and will avoid these offers.

They are pretending this is being done to cut waste, it isnt. It isnt a good deal, they could easily just reduce their prices, thus voted cold. If there were more people voting this cold like it deserves Tesco would have to re-think its practices and we might actually get somewhere against these big oligarchies.

Instead we have a big mob of people who just latch on to things like this. Totally mindless.
