Any Tesco Clubcard holders listen up, as the major UK retailer has just issued a pretty important warning about the expiry date of its vouchers.
Over 20 million Brits have a Tesco Clubcard either downloaded on their phone, tucked away in their wallet or fastened to their keys, which allows thrifty shoppers to receive major discounts and accumulate points they can later redeem for store vouchers.
But now, the supermarket has issued a warning to Clubcard holders as a whopping load of vouchers are soon 'due to expire'.
If you're sitting on a hefty stash of Clubcard vouchers, then you may want to check the expiration date as £18 million worth of them are set to expire in less than a month.
The vouchers which were first issued in February of 2023 will no longer be valid by the end of next month (29 February).
"Tesco Clubcard continues to be the best way to get great value, and with more than £18m worth of vouchers due to expire at the end of the month, we’re reminding customers to spend them now."
The warning comes after Tesco introduced 'magic tills' to help speed up the checkout process for customers, which simplified the process by removing the need to scan individual items.
Instead, shoppers just pop their haul down at the till, and everything suddenly appears on the screen in front of you.
Sarah Quiggin, Head of Store Customer Experience, said: "This is about cutting out some of the challenges around scanning.
"Sometimes there can be issues with certain barcodes and products.
"The alert for an 'unexpected item in the bagging area' is a classic one that customers get frustrated about, understandably.
"With the 'no-scan' tills, you turn up to the checkout and you pay."
Staff have to make sure they’re restocking shelves with total accuracy for the new approach to work, as if something is placed in the wrong area of the shop, the technology will assume they have picked up what is supposed to be there.
The system has already been introduced in Hammersmith, London, at a shop located beneath a set of luxury apartments.
Well, maybe the all-new magic tills will finally put an end to the dreaded 'UNEXPECTED ITEM IN THE BAGGING AREA' chaos once and for all.
