Glitch on Tesco Solar Lights - Tesco Direct

102
Found 1st Jul 2011
I hope I explain this correctly! Solar lights are currently buy one, get one free. If you add two to the basket, add the current code for 20% off gardening, it takes the 20% off both sets as well as deducting the cost of the second set! I have just bought six sets of lights totalling £120, less £60 buy one get one free, less £24 20% discount leaving £36 to pay! Bargain!

Code to use is TD-NTYK

No solar powered lights X)
I got some of these solar lights for free before.
Seriously is no point buying them as they need serious amounts of sunlight to work so in our winter they are next to useless

But lots of these work out at cheaper than £1 each - for example 2 packs of these give you 24 lights for £18 (plus quidco, clubcard). Seems okay to me, even if they may not be the best quality, or work in winter.

Got 2 lots of £30 ones for £18, should be ok for what paid,
Hot Deal cheers. Got 50 Berry Blue LED Solar Line Light and Tesco super bright solar markers 6 pack for from £50 + £5 p&p to £25 + £5 p&p then 20% off which deducted £10 instead of £5. Cheers

I think most people enjoy these in the Spring and Summer!
Excellent spot. Thanks.

I confirm. Poundland sells solar lights which last for the all spring and summer, same as these ones
Don't think it's a glitch, as such. Tesco are offering 20% off everything gardening-related on top of other offers. Doesn't say how long for.
Ordered. Heat added. Thx
thx 's got 2 sets of 50 berry solar light for £15 going to put them around decking rails
Think I will reserve my heat for now as these look to be the same quality as the poundland ones.
Picked up these ones. Worked out to be £12 for 8 and they have 35 good reviews. So hopefully should be better than the poundland ones.

£93?
I seriously doubt that tes will honour anything bought online if its only a glitch in the system, they are extremely cynical that way.
decent deal but they're being a little naughty seeing as the 50 berry white solar line lights are only £17.50 in store anyway, not £25. Suppose if you want 2 sets it will only cost you £15...

I own 2 sets already and they're pretty decent so tempted to get a couple more at this price for when these ones go.
good glitch.
dont forget quidco! if it tracks lol

Exactly what I ordered - and well chuffed with the OP - thanks!
Great find and ordered, I brought some of the pound shop ones and still waiting for them to come on after a week!!! lol
Thanks for explanation. Hot!
Superb, just ordered the 8 bollards and the 12 super bright markers for £27 and should have cost £90. Plus my 91 clubcard points and hopefully Quidco
£18 for £60 worth hot from me

In winter you could always take the batteries out and charge them in a normal battery charger.
Did it once. the charge lasted for ages. Lights on about 16 hours every day/night in winter
Thank OP:)

I bought some last year and can safely say the quality is far, far superior to Poundland ones. They DO come on in the winter, although for not as long. My Tesco ones are still on some mornings if I get up early.

I have bought some cheap ones this year also and there is no comparison. Some of them are broken already after just a few weeks.
great deal thank you. placed 2 orders to take advantage of the "lowest price free".

2 x £20 lights delivered free to store = £12
2x £36 lights delivered free to store = £21.60

Spent £33.60 on £112 of lights...........which apparently is a bargain..........except I would never have spent over £100 on solar lights :-)

Great deal ............thanks OP
Great deal. Ordered two lots of berry lights, a snip at £15
How horrifically edited and awful is this picture? X)
