Asus Transformer T100 - £349 (£249 using Tesco double the difference policy) @ Tesco

21
Found 16th Jul 2014
As can be seen in the picture, the shelf price is £349 but the item itself is showing £299

Buy the item for £249 then head straight to customer services. Based on the "double the difference" policy, you should be refunded £100.

(Yes I know this will be ice cold, tesco & asus transformer in one post!)

The shelf price is £299 but you pay £349 at the till, this means you can get £100 back as per DTD policy

You mean buy the item for £349?

Have you actually got this deal, or is it theoretical?

But will they give you £100.00 is the question, or just the £50.00 and say they have a limit on the "double the difference" policy

Not sure all stores honour the double the difference policy these days (if it's mentioned / displayed, they have to - but not sure it is displayed everywhere anymore)

I would take it at face value, and try and get the £50 difference if there is indeed a pricing error (of course, they don't have to homour this either, they can just offer to refund / return the item).

Would it not be the other way round if the shelf price was showing £299 but you actually paid £349? Surely paying less than the shelf price isn't 'overpaying'

As others have said have you actually bought it to prove this works?

What?

I thought this policy if actually upheld would work the other way around such that a shelf price that was lower than what you were charged would result in some repayment. If it works the other way as you suggest then that would make all the one penny offers fantastic money makers.

LOL, This is a joke, tesco dont give you double the difference for undercharging you,

I am genuinley confused here, So is it £349, £299 or £249 at the till?

I can quote you at......

Buy the item for £249



Or is this Item scanning at £299 but is £349 on the SEL?

There is no double the discount money coming your way either way.

Some people have obviously misunderstood. The shelf price (ie what you initially pay) is £349. The device in store displays £299 on it's advertising animation. So under double the difference they're displaying a lower price and charging the higher price.

The important matter here is......

What the hell is it scanning at?

Thats the opposite of what you wrote in the description

Sorry, just spotted the typo, I meant "pay £349 at the till" ... Have just confirmed it scans at £299 anyway so not a deal, abort mission...

What a shame. Thankfully you found something scanning for a penny.

Nice job on editing the OP's description with the wrong info

i would never buy a asus product. very unreliable. Cold from me :-(

I wonder how many are heading to tesco right now X)

The last time I was this confused I was wondering why using boiled spaghetti would not work as laces for my shoes.

Well I managed to get it right 2/3 of the time, just one little typo let me down... Not sure why everyone else ignored the correct info in the header

Sickens me when people do this
