Found 29th Aug 2008
Just been to Tesco on Abbeydale Road in Sheffield - I bought a couple of bottles of Theakstons XB which is a pretty nice ale imho and they charged me 85p per bottle when the label said £1.48 (i think).

I didn't go back to get more even tho I noticed in the store as I was in a rush. But I might do later :-)

I have no clue if its nationwide mistake or if its online but there you go, cheap nice ale

edit: I couldn't find it online but some1 a few posts down did. I was sure it said £1.48 at the store and was charged wrong - might of been pending offer anyway - just edited the title to reflect this and added online vouchers.

Don't Tescos have a policy that if the price is advertised wrong they give you the product free. I have done it before when the price is in my favour (ie sausages were advertised at £1.50 but went through till at £2 - got my £2 back).

Will this work this way as well?

Not a clue. First time I have been to Tesco (offline) for about a year - I was just given some vouchers for free food so I went there.

Thing is they'll fix the price and then people lose out if you tell them of their misake.

for reference; just been online and they don't even list the ale.

Two reasons why this will not work.

First, and rather obviously, they do not compensate you for a mistake in your favour.

Secondly, Tesco now refund double the difference. They stopped doing the full refund last year.

By all accounts, Tesco did used to compensate you for a mistake in your favour with a full refund. However, they stopped doing this a few years ago.

Mostly because people took the p and got full refunds on 2 or 3 xboxes at a time. No wonder they withdrew the deal!

Great Ale though, one of my favs

Showing as 85p online for me so I doubt this is a misprice, just a great offer if your store sells it.
