    jameson's whiskey bargain / loophole? £15 @ Tesco

    This one is pretty simple

    Wasnt sure where to post - so its here and if mods feel it is better suited elsewhere - please move

    Instructions -

    Buy a bottle (70cl) of Jameson's Irish whiskey from Tesco.com or at your local Tesco store - this will cost you £15.00

    Enter details of your till reciept on the tesco "price checker" and they will get back to you telling you it is £10.00 at ASDA - in the spirit of human kindness they will double the difference in price as a refund = £10

    tesco.com/pri…ck/

    This will give you a £10 voucher to spend at Tesco and it will only have cost you £5.00 for your whisky in real terms.

    I realise you still need to spend £15 which is why i was sure if it should be in "deals" AND if you dont usually shop at Tesco its maybe not worth bothering.

    I would buy the whiskey (or whiskey's as you see fit !!) as a standalone item(s) so that the rest of your shopping basket does not directly affect your "price difference"

    And bear in mind the £100 household limit - so dont go buying 11 at once!!
    Hope the heads up makes someone want to vote hot

    Unsure about end date . . . .

    it says £12 at price checker so you get £6 from tesco - in the end bottle costs you £9, just £1 less than in ASDA. not worth the hassle - cold.

    nice, so do they post or email voucher/credit?
    So 10 bottles = £150
    Tesco send me £100?

    Nice if works.
    thank you

    Its been in national press that ASDA have it at £10

    Check ASDA.com for yourself for the price - you think Tesco want to admit that someone is undercutting them a fiver?

    Seemed like a good deal, like OP said if you drink it anyway not bad. I dont so would sell it to the father in law so for me if I bought 4 bottles, £60 outlay, £40 back from Tesco, would leave £20 for four bottles which is good. Asda selling it for £10 a bottle but wouldnt sell it to my FIL for that so potentially £8 a bottle which would leave me a net profit of £12-£3 delivery charge. £9 profit.

    Moved to misc as it's a handy thing to know.
    A similar thread was posted earlier.

    The original thread, from the price check starting, is here
    http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/tesco-price-checker-checks-your-shopping-total-against-asda-gives-double-differe/892004

    and there was a 'heads up' from Nicster before that.

    do they change there prices monday?

    Banned

    So what price will tesco compare against? their own price checker site that says £12 at ASDA or the ASDA site at £10?

    Banned

    Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur £10 for 1Litre Bottle at ASDA £16.47 @ Tesco = £3.53 a bottle once you get your voucher back.

    Also check Pimm no1 £10 for 70c on asda site and £13.97 = £6.03

    All these are only going to work if the Tesco price checker site updates before the asda offer ends.

    According to the Price checker site, they update once a week. It's all new to me, so If someone can prove that wrong I'm happy to learn.

    wrong for me too got order this morning the price checker should be updated daily, but thats where there going to make there money, when people order and expect a good diffrence back only to find when there order comes the price is lower than the checker states, matching asda or just a few pence over asda's price.

    The whiskey came back not found from the receipt I submitted on Saturday, looks like i'll have to return them and go shopping in Asda instead. The price checker hasn't been updated since the 11th, I won't be risking any more money on this as they seem to be excluding products that are a lot cheaper at asda.

    yes they either dont scan or they fix the price to nearly match asda so they dont have to give double the diffrence. best thing is to buy instore rather than online. so your not taking a risk.

    I did purchase instore, checked the Tesco price and Asda price online, and paid the inflated £15 at the till in Tesco, the item came back not found, so I suspect they have pulled it from the pricecheck comparison.

    I would call them up just explain to them you paid more than asda and you want double the difference.

    I just got my email in - bought 2 bottles (yesterday) and got a voucher for £20 !!

    will try and upload a pic later for the non believers

    OTAL £ 31.85 £ 21.85
    1 x TESCO COURGETTES LSE CLASS 1 (0.21 kg) £ 0.38 £ 0.38

    1 x DAFFODILS BUNCH £ 1.00 N/A
    1 x (0.215 kg) £ 3.01 N/A

    Just a quick cut and paste to keep the dream alive til later.

    Yes it works but you have to be careful if ordering online due to the updates been slow and not done daily. Price checker says rum is £17.xx bottle but got it today and they only charged me £12.77 meaning it's only 77p over asda price instead of £5.xx I'm sure there already fixing the jamesons price by now after seeing the orders put in
