McCain Carribbean Wedges £1 @ Tesco

28
Found 6th Aug 2013
saw them at my local tesco branch, they are half price RRP. £2.00 nationwide i guess, i checked online found that the offer is also online. in-store packs contain some promotional offer when you buy two you can get the codes from both packs to get a sharing bowl. link: mccain.co.uk/sum…ng/

I've got a 50p off Tesco clubcard bonus coupon for the lightly spiced wedges. I think it might work with any McCain wedges if I use the self service till. That would be two for £1.50 and a sharing bowl. Sweet!

Link to promotion deal, three packs gets you two bowls:

Bought mine and got 2 bowls on the way!!

Thanks

are these quite spicy?

Waitrose are currently selling McCain potato winners sea salt & pepper wedges (750g) and McCain potato wedges lightly spiced (750g) for £1 [reduced from £2].

are these quite spicy?



i didnt think they really tasted Carribean at all - wouldnt buy again. Tesco own spicy wedges are much nicer

I note that you didn't answer my question.

If you think it's OK to use the self-service checkouts to steal things, why not pretend to buy a pound of potatoes but put a pound of asparagus tips in the bagging area? Just because you have a Clubcard coupon doesn't mean your criminal behaviour is excusable.

As for not having posted any deals: I don't see how that renders me ineligible to comment on your fraud. I was aware of the CPC free delivery before anybody posted it but I didn't share it because I knew what would happen.

I didn't make even an implied reference to myself. I find your comment baffling.

Put in my first 2 codes and was accepted, then it said next time you log in I can enter a third code to claim a second bowl so I guess a second bowl is on the way although for some reason I had to put in my home address again, I thought they would be posted together???

I have a coupon for McCain Wedges I just might (might being the operative word), use it for another pack of McCain Wedges. Not exactly the definition of stealing, that being helping yourself to something for NOTHING, as opposed to saving myself maybe 50p or £1. That against the fortune I've spent in Tesco over the past 28 years, is hardly going to be missed by Tesco. Having said that, I'm pretty sure you MIT les very clen me spotless life, almost priest like I'm sure. Like cookoemonster said, you do need to get off your moral high horse and get over yourself.

You could just as well have a coupon for marmalade. If you are deliberately using a coupon to get money off a product you know to be ineligible, then yes, that falls very much within the definition of stealing. And great, you've spent 28 years shopping in Tesco. Clearly that means you can just wander in and help yourself to whatever takes your fancy.

Oh, you're bored? Well, that's all right; I wasn't trying to interest you. I was trying to establish why you thought it was acceptable to steal. Basically, you know very well that it's theft but you don't care because you've spent 28 years giving Tesco money in exchange for goods and services, so you feel you're entitled to take their produce without appropriately remunerating them. But wait! Tesco has spent 28 years giving you goods and services in exchange for your money. Do you therefore feel they are entitled to pick your pockets for the odd 50 pence here and there without providing you with goods or services of commensurate value? Do you hell.

you are wrong it is not theft, it is a money off coupon for mcain wedges, tesco will honour it against any spiced wedges be it Caribbean or the regular type. it is completely different to buying aspargus tips and clicking potatoes on the self servicetill, you Sir are an imbecile

That wouldn't make me wrong. But I am not in a minority of one. You agree with me. You know that your behaviour is unscrupulous, or you wouldn't have to resort to using the self-service tills to avoid the shame.

Great. Now read again what lowrie said in his post:
"I've got a 50p off Tesco clubcard bonus coupon for the lightly spiced wedges. I think it might work with any McCain wedges if I use the self service till."
You seem to have misinterpreted it to mean "I have a coupon valid for any McCain's wedges. Result!!" whereas the right interpretation is "I have a coupon that I know does not entitle to me a discount on this particular product and I will try to subvert the eligibility criteria of the coupon by using the self-service till."

These are so good dipped in sour cream and chive dip.

The coupon is married to a bar code on the product, if the bar code is not compatible it will not accept the coupon be it self service or not, you likened it to buying asparagus tips and putting it through as potatoes, if tesco choose to accept the coupon via barcode code recognition then that is perfectly acceptable or do you think tesco accept money off coupons for any product not in the basket?

If you would have put it in the correct context a little more it may have some legs but as I say comparing what they said to the fraudulent behaviour of buying a higher value product per kg and putting it through at a lower per kg costing product is completely different. I realise you will not accept this as you plainly feel some sort of skulduggery is happening but it simply isn't the case.

I wasn't saying they were the same. I was just saying "if you're going to abuse the self-service checkout for dishonest gain, why not go the whole hog? Let Parmesan be Dairylea, let wild salmon be pork chops and let caviar be a packet of biscuits."
I do get that there is a (fairly big) difference but if you know the coupon is not meant for what you're using it for, then it's not on to have a go.

Would be better if they were more spicy to be honest

I use coupons which may not match the product if the tills accept it. Recently I bought Tesco Dishwasher tablets and it accepted a Fairy Dishwasher coupon. Mind it this was online and the system automatically accepted the coupons it thought was valid. Obviously I am not stealing and if the system is designed incorrectly it is Tesco's thought and not mine.

Not sure why you have a big issue with this.

What do you mean "Obviously I am not stealing"? I'd say that's exactly what you're doing.
