£10 Meal deal GLITCH @ Tesco (FREE)

35
Found 1st Dec 2011
Thanks to squigs on MSE.

Green veg £2-65
Smoked haddock risotto £5-50
Belgian chocolate puddings £3
Corbierre red wine £10-99

The deal didn't kick in, so a DTD of £24-28.

Better still I had used the £1 off chilled meals coupon, from the price drop magazine and got 25% off the wine as I had already bought more than six bottles so the meal deal was already down to £6-25!


You have to buy Smoked haddock risotto £5-50! for the offer to not work. Then get charged the full price of £20+ and then get DTD!

Double the difference. They will refund you DTD at Customer service if you get overcharge. If you have problems then just point out the sign behind them explaining their own policy

worked at a number of different stores on MSE.

Def working, just got 4 sets. It works with any side dish, any dessert and any of the wines just HAS to be the Haddock main course.

Sorry, should add got 4 sets and paid nothing as they couldn't process the DTD back this late so gave me full refund instead. Happy enough rather then argue over the extra £3.

Is this vino any good or should I use it as a Christmas gift for people I politically have to buy things for?

I always ask for the manager now (and make a fuss till they come out) when they say come back tomorrow, mainly because on one occasion when I went back the following day they told me I should have got it sorted out the previous night.

fair enough. I spoke to the manager! not store manager just checkout manager. And he said come back tomorrow. Maybe I should have made a fuss. Oh well. I try it out again tomorrow.

OP you should change this from £10 to free, this deal should be scorchio but will almost certainly get expired sometime tomorrow (today)/

Yeah poor Tesco having to fulfil their promise. Just think of the thousands who don't check their bill. Well done spotting their con.

I assume they will trace some of those conned, through their club card details and refund them double.

Why is this not over 100 degrees?

Maybe as this is not a deal, it's abuse. They will likely be forced to remove that policy due to this if lots of people take advantage. Which will only hurt the honest customers who were truly overcharged.

Worked at my local Extra at 4:42pm Friday - thanks OP! No hassle getting DTD either (didn't even have to ask).

You may have to search normal Finest section shelves for the risotto though - none left in the £10 meal deal section.

not working on line. Awkward sods are charging me the right price !!

you must be new here. its a good idea to read things before doing something.

how did you plan to get DTD back online???

no dtd at my local store, no matter how hard you argue!

Meal deal withdrawn from Blackburn Tesco as the 'offer isn't working' apparently. Hmm Wonder why?!!

That's good news because the risotto was VERY poor!

Didn't work for me at Accrington Tesco - now stuck with haddock risotto which I don't like!

Didn't work on saturday for me
