Overcharged in Tesco again

Seems to happen most visits now, shelf says one thing, receipt says another...   it is beginning to piss me off.  Anyone else keep getting stung by these world-dominating penny pinchers?

    if you go to customer service they'll refund and normally give you a little voucher

    I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.

    Nope never. In fact I'm usually pretty happy with what the price comes to when I've done the weekly shop.

    I don't scour my receipt for anomalies though...

    Tesco is a joke, just use the self service and you can pretty much make up your own prices!

    The women who "watches" ours seems to be under strict instructions to move the baskets as soon as just 1 is put in the rack, so shes always doing that.

    Just put your tesco finest pairs on the weigher, and input tesco value spuds, simples!

    find something of equal weight thats cheaper and stick that price tag on it.

    If you use the reduced stickers it doesn't have to be a specific weight, so the cakes reduced to 15p can turn into a massive piece of finely cut meat. Used to do it at uni when i was completely broke and desperate for a decent meal. I don't do it anymore though.


    Obviously on self service.

    Happens all the time for me- been caught out a few times, especially when I'm skint and carefully adding it all up so as not to get my card rejected at the till!  I'm wary of it now though and simply avoid promotions on the whole, or check the item with the cashier as she scans it, if its not as advertised I just tell them I don't want it as it is more than it said on the shelf.

    As said, they will normally refund on customer services, but you shouldn't have to.

    Unaffiliated.

    There used to be a nice little scam with regards to this which saw me walking out of most Tescos in Bristol with hundreds of pounds worth of meat and fish for free.  HEHEHE

    Ivery rarely get this. I usually have a quick scan on the receipt before i walk off, and i tend to keep an eye on the scanner when things go in, although that doesn't account for BOGOF deals or multibuys.

    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

    A lot of people in this thread that are happy to admit to being thieves.

    Meh, I'll stick with my words. Stealing by any other name is still stealing.

    I went to Tesco last Wednesday for the first time in about 12 months.

    Got stung by this very same thing. (It was the GF who noticed, not me).

    Tesco has only got it wrong once on the price of batteries.
    Being a tight ****, I sit on the bench outside the shop for 5 mins and scrutinise the till receipt in the hope it may be wrong as they refund double the difference. No such luck.
