    If you were a picker for tesco what substitutions would you choose...

    ...for 4 cans carling?
    ...for diet pepsi?

    Don't know if I am the only one to get odd substitutions. I have today received pepsi max instead of diet pepsi...why not just send diet coke. Also had previously 4 cans of bitter for 4 carling.
    I have had lots of strange substitutions in the past, just wondering what you would pick instead of the above or what the strangest substitutions are that you have ever received?

    its a lot more organised than that,you dont get a choice in what to pick....you never know if the original item is out of stock as the system tells you to pick the replacement

    To be fair plenty of people would moan if they sent Diet Coke instead of Diet Pepsi.

    i work for wincanton we jave contract for sainsburys so i order pick for them they dont even check the pick after u pick it because basicly it goes out straight away other day i had 78 cases of stella to pick was talking to someone so cant remember how much i picked lol just threw a **** load on half the time people just throw on whatever lol

    I dont like Diet Coke....I like pepsi max or if not pepsi max then diet coke. Dont see a problem with what they did

    I can sometimes get angry with ASDA. We usually buy 24 tins of cat food in 2 x 12 packs. ASDA have yet to fail to send 2 x 6 can multipacks. I have a feeling they do this to avoid the price match savings

    they once substitued a jar of red pesto with salsa!!!!!!

    I ordered ladies fingers to make a trifle and they substituted them with cadbury chocolate fingers

    Definitely would give Pepsi Max if Pepsi Diet was out of stock.

    omg! thought mine was bad lol

    one thing i do like though is i tend to order value stuff, if they dont have any instock they sustitute for a better make but i only get charged the value price!

    I think substituting Pepsi max for diet Pepsi was the better option personally...same brand and all that.
    They probably have to be really quick and do the best they can, you don't have to accept it anyway do you?

    I prefer diet coke but if it was out of stock I would prefer something from the coke range rather than pepsi range, I think they did the right thing

    I hate pepsi max, I don't see it as a natural substitution as it's so sweet. Diet coke is surely the alternative...or it would have been had it been on offer. If it is put on a computer how do the manage to have bitter instead of lager?

    I might try that, knowing my luck though they will have all the value price stuff though:roll:

    May I ask a question, on a slightly different note? Whenever I order two of something, and it gets substituted, they only send me one of the new thing (if it was vastly more expensive) but still charge for for the two I didn't get. It still works out cheaper than buying the new thing but...

    I order two packs of smartprice drinking straws, at like 14p each (100 straws in each) but they sent me one pack of 100 bendy straws, priced at 85p or something. They still charged me 28p (for two packs of cheapo ones) but sent only one pack. If I emailed them would they refund me? They are pretty good customer service wise, but I've never tried querying the charge of something like this, especially when I still got a good price!

    its his fault!

    because they've stuck with the PEPSI brand, which imo is the right thing to do

    you can refuse any substitute, or any item in your shopping, or you can opt out of substitutes

    Diet coke is fowl

    So is your spelling, I think you meant foul.

    My fave substitution was about three years ago when tesco sent a box of candles instead of a pair of lightbulbs!! Even the driver was in stitches....
