Coke Zero 24 pack 44p in Tesco (Brand Match rules to buy 10 different items)

LocalFound 20th Nov 2015
Coke Zero is currently £5 for 24 cans in Tesco. Just bought 4 boxes and got £18.24 refunded under Tesco Brand Guarantee making each box 44p. You must comply with their Brand Match rules to buy 10 different items. One item must be a brand (in this case the Coke) weighed items such as fruit and veg don't count. Reduced items don't count either for the 10. Tesco staff were shocked. Friend also did this for 5 boxes but the maximum discount is £20 per transaction. Not sure if other variations of Coke will work.

I'm going to try and clear this out after reading through 6+ pages and no one really explaining it.

Tesco does something called "Tesco Brand Guarantee." (Used to be called Price Promise).
Basically after checkout the till system checks to see what the shop would have cost you elsewhere.
Morrisons has (wrongly I'm assuming) been flagged as selling 24 cans of Coke Zero for ~44p, as such the till automatically reduces the coke to match this price, so instead of £5, each case costs 44p.
To qualify for Brand Match you need to buy at least 1 branded item, and at least ten items (not weighed items, like loose fruit though). So buy 4 x Coke Zero 24 packs and 9 separate other items (eg, 1x toothbrush,1xsoap,1xbread,1xmilk..etc until you have 10 separately unique/describable items in your basket/trolley).

wixster has summed it up FAIRLY well, except it compares to 24p (not 44p) and you CAN buy loose weighted items to get to 10 different items

Yep, 1 bottle of vodka, a bottle of JD, 4 pack of glasses, ice, lime, some straws, a pizza, chips, dips & Ben & Jerry's.........sorted.
What do you need to show Tesco to prove its cheaper elsewhere? And where is it cheaper?

Strangely enough...I was thinking along those lines lol
How exactly does this work re. brand guarantee?
It says online the max voucher you can get is £10
confused here, surely tesco is already the cheapest for coke zero?

I bought one and many other branded items tonight and got nothing back
if this can be done easily, this will go super nova hot
This is just like morrisons deal really, you get points for shopping there if the price difference is different at Asda etc. Tesco just give you a voucher if it worked out cheaper to shop somewhere else. You've made this sound better than it actually is.

I thought the guarantee got you the difference back?
If their price guarantee is they refund the difference where are 24 cokes 44p or am I getting this wrong?
Hmmm I might be cynical but not sure on this one
Did you finish the spirits before purchasing the mixer ?
This is surely a mix up...

I'm quite sure this can't work how you have presented it. What else did you buy? How much did you pay in total for your shop? I am failing to understand how you consider each box of 24 Coke Zero to be 44p when you must have also had other items in the shop which affected the price and therefore the difference in price between Tesco and the others.
op if u bought 4 boxes & u also state need to buy 10 different items... I'm not getting it?

Tesco isnt a voucher its deducted from the total cost......

BUT unless this is an error in programming of prices by Tesco there is nowhere selling 24 cans of coke zero for 44p
It gets automatically taken off your shopping bill now, no voucher they changed the way the do it and up to £20, must be a glitch somewhere
Not buying this, reading their t&c's you should only get the difference, and the coke is already a deal in itself-im guessing is more a gremlin in the system, rather than how it should be.

APHow Tesco Price Promise works
When you shop at Tesco, we’ll check your basket against the prices at Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons. If your comparable grocery shopping would have been cheaper there, we’ll give you a voucher for the difference (up to £10).
If you shop in-store, we’ll give you the voucher at the checkout, or if you shop online, we’ll send you an e-mail after your delivery has arrived.
To qualify, you’ll need at least 10 different items, including one comparable grocery item in your basket.

^^statment from Tesco on their website. So from that it states voucher, not a deduction.

When you shop in-store (excluding Tesco Express and Tesco Petrol Filling Stations) or online at Tesco, we’ll check the total price of your Branded Basket of groceries against the total price of a comparable branded basket at Asda, Morrisons[1] and Sainsbury’s. If your comparable branded grocery shop would have been cheaper at Asda, Morrisons[1] or Sainsbury’s, we’ll deduct the difference (or the maximum Tesco Brand Guarantee limit of £20) off the price of your shop before you pay.
What else did you buy ? Better still could you post the receipt details. At the bottom of the receipt starting with the date.
Relieved - for a minute there I thought I was the only one that didn't have a clue how this deal worked X)

Well obviously Tesco have ****ed up and completely messed their own system up.

Amazing how the op has gone quiet .......

They would need to mention the other 9 products bought, whether they were brands or tesco's own etc for anyone to have any idea whether this was working or a glitch

Wonder how many have already hot footed it round to Tesco on a freezing friday night lol
Edited by: "jase.2" 20th Nov 2015
The Tesco thing used to be 'price promise' where you'd get a voucher for the difference but that's been replaced with this 'brand guarantee' where the deduction is at checkout (or delivery for online customers, like me).

Still have absolutely no idea how this particular deal works.
What's that smell ...... I think it's bullxhit

​"Price promise" and Brand promise" are different.



 we’ll deduct the difference (or the maximum Tesco Brand Guarantee limit of £20) off the price of your shop before you pay and show you what we deducted on your receipt. 

from their website re. Brand Guarantee
So I can go buy in my shopping with plus ten mixed items obviously not those excluded add 24 pack of Coke Zero an pay just 44p for them?

I doubt it as even if the coke zero bit worked you would have to buy nine other items , so of course 9 different tesco basics tins of something or other wouldnt cost much but no way would you walk out just paying 44p

me too.......a member for over 3 years that has only posted 2 deals and made 10 comments then logs off as soon as they post this lol
it has gone 10 different items but only 1 needs to be branded.
this is not possible.
Thanks op. Have you entered your receipt into the brandmatch checker to see if it is the coke that's giving the discount please?
cold and spammed
glenm721

this is not possible.



its entirely possible IF the brand guarantee system is picking up the wrong price for a competitor. That happens more than you might think
Any ideas of how I can post the receipt pic for you? It just asks for the URL. You don't have to show the product is cheaper elsewhere, Tesco does this automatically at the till. The discount is subtracted from your shopping at the til.
This needs spamming

Can you post the numbers from the bottom of your receipt please? Then we can plug it into the onine checker and see which supermarket it is comparing against (and how)

Thanks
