Tesco instore - Xbox Live 12+1 months, 3 months, and £50 gift cards - scanning at 1p

39
Found 28th Jan 2014
In Tesco Bangor (North Wales not Northern Ireland) today, loads of Xbox gift cards without a price on the shelves, near the rest of the Xbox games etc.

Lots of branded 3 months Xbox Live Gold subscriptions, with Forza / Fifa logo's etc.

Also a few 12+1 month Xbox Live Gold cards, and some for £50 of credit.

Loads left when I bought this an hour ago, although mostly 3 month ones. Still a good few £50 and 12+1 months left though.

I bought a £50 card and my friend got a 12+1 month card. Both charged at 1p at the tills. Was already using scan as you shop but did have to have the cards removed from security cases but they never mentioned anything.

Daaaaamn.

Bangor Wales or Northern Ireland

The card is 1p every tesco, but it's £50 to have credit installed onto the card.

Expired. They always scan at 1p. They have to be activated at the till where you pay the proper price. You have just bought a waste of card i'm afraid.

I want one of these scanning toys Shame my store does not have it Have some heat OP for the find

Added the gold subscription to my account fine, presumed they had credit … Added the gold subscription to my account fine, presumed they had credit preloaded as they were in security cases?



do u have receipt? I wouldn't have thought they would be in cases either if no credit on them?

Haha another one of these

I agree with deallady, wish our store had these scanning things. all of our tescos have scanners on the wall but they never work, just tell you to see an assistant

trouble is you have to get a sales assistant to take them out of the security case and they might not let them though at 1p.

One hand on the case, the other on the scanner...... You're the guy with a camera strapped to your head!

This was my concern but thought it was worth a go. I did buy a few food things too though, so it's not like the total due on screen showed £0.01 whilst the card said £50 on it.

Not working in Broughton scans at full price

partners away to check in store. what a geek

Try office or windows! same :-)

I smell........... ****

Grrr just bought one and on the back it says "Card has no value until activated by cashier". Deal over I think.

Just got 25 pounds card and 12 months xbox live for 1p


You didn't

I spoke to an employee last week about this... He was laughing at everyone nicking them when they're worthless until paid for at till with full amount.

Ps+ is a different story

Edinburgh corstorphine, charging 1p! Shops crowded with lady's and gents buying them!

Schoolboy error!!!! D'oh!!!! Worth a go but I do understand what you mean about them being in the plastic cases and how it would make you think they are fully loaded!

"Card has no value until activated by cashier"

Just pulled one of the guys up from the electrical department told him I was from head office and that we know about the staff taking all the discounted items for themselves and storing them out the back ..... I think he has now gone to change his underwear clearly I am not from head office lol x

No i didn't but wanted some attention oO

And they have just made me out to look like a thief lol

I want my 1p back!!!!!!!! oO

they have to be activated at checkout otherwise they will scan at 1p.

Not a deal.

I can see why OP thought he was on to something as the silly employees at his Tesco put these in security cases. However, not sure why OP had to lie about them working.

HaHa doh!!!

no monetary value on the card at all, has to be scanned thru till and activated, so your buying a useless piece of plastic

Lol I think the fact your using Question marks makes us all realise that it hasn't been activated , easy mistake, but own up next time , otherwise in the future genuine deals will be doubted
