Tesco Finest meal deal + 25% wine discount glitch

Found 24th Jun 2010
Buy two finest mains, a bottle of wine and a dessert for £9. If you buy 6 of these you also get the wine discount too on the original cost of the wine. If you the (overpriced) £9.99 wine you can get 6 deals for £39 instead of £54.

Not a glitch, this always happens, just an extra bonus if its 25% wine discount at the moment.

This happens with M&S meal deals too, if you get 6 meals then you get the wine discount off original price of wine and they do 25% sometimes as well.

The mind boggles with some of you guys, how do you work these deals out???

It definitely is a glitch as you are getting the meal deals at £6.50 each instead of £9.

Ok, but how do you eat 6 of these before they have expired.?!?

I think it is a glitch. I can understand the 25% off bit not being considered a glitch but buying 2 mains and a dessert and wine is not part of the offer...but it is letting you do it for £9 (i.e. it is letting you subsitute a side with a main). Then with the 25% off the wine it makes it a better deal.

desert for £9?

good deal.thanks for pointing it out

I freeze the stuff I'm not going to use straight away.
I also think its worth going through the self-scan because some SA's question whether you should be having 2 mains instead of a starter and mains and I would get embarassed, but I think it also works online(although not tried it myself) and then you don't have any contact with SA's.

I think the OP has made a mistake. It is one main, one side, one desert and a bottle of wine for £9. Then x6 for the 25%. I may be wrong, if someone gets this with two mains then feel free to shoot me down.
Great spot OP.
I will be getting six.
Thanks.

Actually it is 2 mains a dessert and a wine for the BEST deal...its a glitch, you can place two mains instead of a side and it still works.....unfortunately I can't get the 25% to work on the wine anymore....though, still a good deal!

Yes, as taraweeh says, you can substitute another mains for the starter, which is much better value as these can be around £4 each whilst the starter is usually cheaper. For those ordering online the 25% seems to be coming off when the wine is delivered.

Hadn't clicked the glitch on gettting 2 main courses instead of main and side. Hot from me.

Hi guys,
I am glad to be corrected on this 2 main meals glitch. I only wish I had read this before going in today. I am still happy with what I got, but I will probably go and get another lot tomorrow. Time to fill the freezer.
Thanks.
Matthew

Stupid checkout assistant - didn't scan two of the bottles of wine! Even though the wine was £10+ a bottle so 'saved' £20 on not scanning, the meals cost more than that and we lost the wine discount so cost about £9.20 a meal!!!!!
Didn't dare to go and complain as the supervisors in our store are a nightmare 'jobsworth' and would have kicked up a fuss about having two main meals and not being able to combine the wine discount so it wasn't worth the hassle. What a mare. Still, got 12x main meals in 6x 'deals' so trying to be happy in knowledge that it is a better deal than Tesco intended, just ****ed off at the assistant.

Self-scan is your friend.

Just had a delivery including six meal deals as suggested and can confirm that the 25% wine discount was credited, even though it didn't show when booking. Thanks for the tip!

not an option in our store :?

Has this expired as I keep getting £54?
I have tried with starters, mains, dessert and wine, and without the starter with extra main. So I am getting the glitch where as I can get 2 mains, but not the 25% off the wine.
