Instructions:This is a printable £4.00 off voucher that comes as part of the Daily Mail's Book Club offer to save £4.00 off the RRP on the book 'Reading In Bed' by Sue Gee.

However, several people have had success using these vouchers for money off their weekly shop in Tescos and Asda without actually having to buy the book.

Simply click the 'Use Voucher' button, print off the voucher and hand it in when paying for your next shop at Tesco or Asda.

I got 6 bottles of Gallo White Granche rose wine reduced to £4.15 each and then 5% off for buying 6 bottles and then I used the £4 off voucher. Which means I only paid £3.27 each per bottle - BARGAIN or what. Got 6 yesterday and 6 today....VOTED HOT Hot hot!!!
#10
does it have to be a "big shop" and can you use it a normal tills?
#11
i wondered that to can it be used on a £5 odd spend?
#12
hello i tried it b4, it works but is quite nerve wracking. Indeed when i use the self till, there are lights flashing saying that it requires authorization from the tesco staff but may be it was a busy day so he just authorize it without really taking a look at my voucher.

does it happen to u guys as well?

Sounds pretty worrying if Tesco Staff are called over to see you using a voucher which technically you shouldn't. I still wanna try it though! Would love it if I could get away with like £4 off a £5 shop :D
#14
Isn't this stealing though?

I'm sure the question's been posed over and over again - wonder what the legal ramifications are? You may as well print off as many as you can and use them to pay for £4 worth of shopping at a time over and over again.

Absolutely right - just plain fraud. Read the very clear wording on the voucher. If you'd feel comfortable taking £4 out of a Tesco or ASDA till just because nobody was looking at the time, then you'll have no problems using one or more of these. Voted cold, for that reason.
#16
As anyone actually bought the book? It is showing at £4.94 online at Tesco
so it would be a bargain if same price instore 94p

Tesco have been robbing us for years and they dont seem to mind. Considering the profits they make this wont even make a dent. If you dont want to use the voucher then dont but I certainly appreciate this being posted! Secondly tesco authorise the voucher when you scan it and the staff approve it so its not stealing, and its not my job to check the wording on the coupon!

As for the posts about them checking the voucher they dont. You post it in the coupon slot once scanned and then it asks for approval by which time they cant look at it. Secondly there is no min spend on this but be sensible!

I hate Tesco as much as you appear to, but it's the book publisher you're actually stealing from. If you're OK with that - fine.

I can tell you, though, that the unambiguous wording "To the Daily Mail reader - This token cannot be exchanged for cash or any other merchandise" makes it quite clear that anybody using these tokens to get cash off other items is acting fraudulently. Tesco may well be complicit, but that doesn't make your actions any less criminal.

As I say, if you're OK with that - fine. I just happen not to be. Would you think it OK to help yourself from the publisher's petty cash if they happened to leave it out on display? Just curious.
#19
Yup, just plain theft. The people doing it and mikeyp will of course say Tesco do far worse back - which obviously doesn't make any sense - but even people as immoral and... 'slow' as them must realise.

If you don't like that Tesco sell you everything for cheaper and still continue to make a decent profit, don't do all your shopping there. Now go rob some orphanege or whatever it is you do on a Wednesday afternoon.
#20
ive buy another book instead as it comes up on the screen as book, not the actual title, so spending £2 or £3 on a book your getting a free book plus extra money off, a little less guilt then, ive worked on self service before and authorisation is needed for vouchers over £1, or more than 1. make sure you put an address on these if required, as some cashiers won't accept them.
#21
omg this is exactly the same as 50p of your next purchase of butter but asda and tesco accept it even if you dont buy that butter or any butter and this is the same there is not problem with it in my mind and nothing like stealing from an orphange that is just a stupid statement
#22
most supermarkets allow you to USE vouchers if you have not brought the product. has always been that way i think. They just claim the money back from the publisher, who is happy as long as the amount of books sold exceed the amount of vouchers simple not theft

I suppose it just depends whether you have any personal moral standards, really, or any command of the English language.
#24
Yeah, the supermarkets themselves have accepted these kinds of vouchers for years no matter what you buy. It's not illegal or immoral at all.
#25
We get vouchers for Sainsburys which say £3 off if you spend £2.00 on bakery products or some such lunacy and I always just use them as a matter of course. It doesn't seem to matter what you've bought.

tbh it seems like you have a very odd view of the world and a very odd understanding of companys and i decided it was to much hassle to correct my English as i am doing other things at the same time and am not sad enough to sit the moaning about everything or about peoples Grammar, but you have fun with that and if you feel the urge you can re-write my post in 'correct english' wont that be fun for you :-D

If this were so, the publisher wouldn't bother to put the terms and conditions on the voucher. Don't kid yourself - you're committing fraud.

So, if the supermarkets do it, it's OK. Those guardians of public morality - Tesco. I like it!

Misuse of these vouchers is not only immoral, but also constitutes fraud. If you think otherwise, that's fine, and if you feel comfortable following Tesco as your guide to what's right and wrong, that's also fine. A pretty sad state of affairs, but fine.

If it's Fraud, how come no publishers or whatever have taken Tesco to court over it?
Tesco are the ones accepting them, it's between them and whoever gives them the money for the coupons.
If you want to kick up a fuss about what's right and what's wrong, what's moral and what's immoral, take it up with Tesco. Even if you don't use a coupon like this in store, you're still buying produce that you KNOW was practically forced from the farmer's hands at a stupidly low price. You know that 99% of everything in that store is far from fairly traded, yet I don't see you complaining about that.
You may as well boycott all supermarkets in general for that reason.

Note: By "Tesco", I mean all supermarket retailers, really.

its fraud...but its saved me 4£ now....used at self till....before staff noticed or called, I quickly put in the voucher into the voucher hole....was very funny...shopped 4.63£, but paid only 4£
#32
I'm sure Tesco security have the right to detain you and call the police for committing an act of fraud if they cotton on to this.

It's blatantly obvious that the voucher isn't to be used without also purchasing the book and in a court of law, a plead of ignorance probably wouldn't get you anywhere and you'd be fined for a lot more than £4!

However, I'm sure most Tesco staff wouldn't bother pulling you up on it and even if they did and you plead ignorant / give a 'whoops, my mistake' excuse, I doubt the staff would still detain you and especially if it's a 'fist offence' and you've not got into trouble with that Tesco store in the past, and especially over the use of a £4 off voucher. - Which is why I wanna give it a go, see what happens.

Either way, by using this voucher you are taking a risk, whether you think it's morally ok and justified or not.

Even though I think its perfectly fine to use the voucher. This WILL take the profits off Tesco/Asda, etc. As the voucher has not been used in conjunction with the book, Daily Mail will not redeem the voucher, thus losing Tesco thousands. Great voucher.
#34
A trick that I do is just take any book, preferably the one on the voucher, place all your items on the self service till, leave the book behind. If any problems, whoops! forgot to put the book through if your giving a bit of probs. Before paying, cancel it off your list.
#35
tesco dont take this as they dont get there money back on it, but asda do take it:?
#36
can you us more then one per transaction?
#37
The worrying thing about this one is that Tesco (and maybe ASDA too, but I'm not quite so sure about them) have logged all these transactions whenever one of their cards has been used to pay, or to get Clubcard points.

And because so many of these vouchers have already been misused, the publishers are now looking very carefully at the sales/voucher ratio on a store by store basis (a simple enough technique because of the way these books have been supplied) and considering their next action. What form that takes will depend on the lawyers, but for anyone who's used any kind of card in the transaction I'd be pretty concerned at the possible consequences.

Let's just say the situation has become known in legal/publishing circles, and that steps are being taken to rectify the position. What exactly those steps are is not clear yet, but it's unlikely to affect anybody who paid cash and didn't use any kind of loyalty card.
