TIP / GUIDE on how to get the best use of the discount codes etc @ Tesco Direct ( Sim card delivery Loophole/Banking vouchers/returns/ etc) thanks to HankMcSpank

Thought is was about time this was updated,as other posters have asked for this to be reposted, as other thread was 7 months old now.

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

HankMcSpank: You can rep him on POST 6
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.

Excellent. I got confused 'cause I never knew it was automatic "free delivery" on Sim cards. Could not understand why people kept telling me to get a Sim card.

Have tried a number of codes from here for a while with no luck but today, the one for £13 off worked...yipee.

Just a little tip.

If you wait a long while before returning items, once they have gone out of stock, they will refund the FULL original selling price if you happen to mislay the receipt.:whistling:

Did that with a pair of Gelert boots. Cost approx £12 and got full refund of £44.00.:roll:

I used to get away with that but tried this recently and the staff seem to have been warned that they have to get a receipt or they cant refund the product......they were insisting that i phone tesco direct and have them arrange a collection and refund or send me a copy of my invoice:roll:

I'd paid £8 for a table and the till was scanning it at £80:whistling:

Now that was a bargain :w00t::santa:

thanks for the tips

Thanks Hotscot great thread

This is a great guide - thanks for putting it in. Fairly new to HUKD - is there any way this can be "stickied" for members future reference? H & R added.

Anyone knows if tesco have stopped refunding the sims?

I tried returning one today, but was rudely told they wont take sim returns.

I have to wonder if it's all worth it to save a few quid

I tried to return one a couple of weeks ago and was also told rather rudely that I could return it but I would have to pay for the delivery of the other item on the receipt

The way I do that is click on 'Thread tools' in the original post and select 'subscribe to this thread' and 'add subscription'.

When you want to see your subscribed threads later just click on 'control panel' at the top of the page to get a nice list of 'em by clicking on 'view all subscribed threads'.

HTH
