TIP / GUIDE on how to get the best use of the discount codes etc @ Tesco Direct ( Sim card delivery Loophole/Banking vouchers etc) Look for 50% / 70% off items

I know,I know,lots of Tesco'd threads,but might help some of our new members if this helps explain it a bit more,hope it helps.( Explained in piccys post 2 & 3 & 4)

Also remember the discount can be used by other members of your family at your address with different email account...As i have a large family,we have several account and used it many times...if you get what i mean.

You may be able to get premuim delivery (as below) in your area,check just in case

Just one thing to add.....whenever I've used the sim 'free delivery' wheeze, I've been able to select a premium delivery slot (@£6.95) ...which narrows delivery down to a preferred 2 hour window slot - I've been getting the £6.95 refunded! (which is better than the £4.95 delivery method that folks seem to go for with the Sim delivery)

Baccus:
Great post!
On other threads users have mentioned being able to 'bank' vouchers. Does anyone here know how this is done?
Thanks in advance

You do a dummy order,all the way to the payment stage,like you would as normal,but do not complete (as in pay) and the voucher code will automatically be stored/saved in your account to use another time,within expiry date of course
Hope this helped

When the Free delivery on a £50 spend offer is available..see below.
TIP ***If you choose a sale item that goes into basket at full price,but has been reduced ie was £50 now £22 I would have only spent £22,but still gives me free delivery. As it's calculated on the original price,not the sale price.*****


I know not a deal,but I have been told by mods I can post TIPS in deals as it seems to be asked in every Tesco direct deal,i thought i'd lump it together with piccys to help,i hope.

I will try and answer any questions if I can about this,if i'm online that is.

Yup - I bought the Tesco trampette. Once you factor in the cost of the sim card and the points, you're only paying £3.49!

I'll donate this to our kids' Primary School - since it's cheaper than saving the Sports for Schools vouchers, being as how the cheapest trampette/trampoline you can get costs 1,473 vouchers (or roughly £1473 pounds of shopping!).

A great find. Heated up and rep'd. Thank you fellow Scot.

Really helpful, thanks for taking the time to explain this.

Good work hotscot

thanks for this explains a lot just a question about the sim card can you take it to a tesco shop and get a refund from them

Thank you will add this info,as i've never got this :thumbsup: rep added

Hi, can anyone work out whats the cheapest way for me to get this

Silver Chrome and Carbon Inset Gear Knob

cant seem to get the code to work

thanks

Great explanation!

cheers - well explained!

cheers, thanks for that. I have never used the free sime for delivery. It would cost me more to return the sim. Mind you I can always just bin it. A £2.47 sim is cheaper than there delivery anyway.

Thats a great example for everybody.

Thanks

just register with a different email address

Big thank you to hotscot for a detailed explaination

yes, good for hotscot to take the time, i mean, i could understand this before, but i didnt even think to take the time to write a post about it........just shows that some folk are more considersate than me

If you are on Tesco Mobile you can use the free SIM delivery to get free airtime: one of the cards cost £5 but has £11 airtime on it. Using a spare phone to put your new SIM into you can set your 'own' phone up on the 'Ping Me A Pound' service and transfer the credit to yourself £1 at a time. Slow but it's free!

thanks for that, couldnt get it below £13ish before
