We bought 20 Tesco Clubcard deals and made a big saving – here’s what happened

Supermarket giant Tesco has taken a bit of a beating this week – over its controversial Clubcard. It started the week by announcing that some of its Clubcard customers will no longer receive their paper vouchers and statement by post and will instead receive their points by email.

And a few days later, a shopper denounced Tesco’s Clubcard pricing structure. Their post went viral after asking why Tesco had different prices for Clubcard and non-Clubcard customers – and demanded the lower price be introduced across the board.

Now StokeonTrentLive has put Clubcard offers to the test. We visited her Longton store and picked 20 essentials that would be included in any weekly store – and the results were stunning.

Our bill without Clubcard was £100.54. Our bill for the same items – with a Clubcard – came to just £71.07. It’s free to sign up for a Tesco Clubcard – and many shoppers swear by it.

Will Collis, 26, of Stone, said: “Especially on more expensive items, Clubcard discounts can save a lot. It’s something I always look out for when shopping.”

Cathy Hawley, 26, from Dresden, said: “I’ve had one for a few years, it’s good. It costs a few pounds.”

Tesco has defended its latest Clubcard pricing structure. A Tesco spokesperson said: “Through Clubcard prices, we give over 20 million customers access to thousands of exclusive offers on everything from food staples like fruit and vegetables to treats like prosecco and ice cream.

“It’s easy and free to sign up, and customers can sign up on the Tesco Grocery & Clubcard app, website or in-store to start saving right away.”
