Tesco Clubcard holders urged to not to get caught out by 'common' shopping mistake

Tesco Clubcard holders are being warned not to make a common mistake when shopping.

Thousands of people have been signing up for Tesco's Clubcard to help save cash when buying products. However, one customer is urging people to double check what they are buying and to look closely at the prices.

Kimberley Mallen put a post on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group asking people to not just blindly look at the yellow Clubcard prices. She compared two toilet rolls, one with a Clubcard price and one without. And she pointed out they were the same price, you would be getting more for your money if you bought the product without the Clubcard price.

She said: "Don’t let the Clubcard prices catch you out! Andrex 16 rolls x 155 sheets = 2480 Velvet 24 rolls x 150 sheets = 3600. Just because it’s on the Clubcard price doesn’t mean it works out better."

Other shoppers thanked her for the advice and agreed with her, reports Birmingham Live. One said: "I've always checked the cost per sheet or roll, or wherever when buying as its stated on ticket. Same with any other product.

"Cost per weight, volume etc. No Clubcard price ain't always the better deal, just look at the shelf pricing n make buying choices accordingly. Good post to let ppl be more aware when shopping."

Another added: "This is so common- keep seeing posts on the Asda budget range but when I compared price/volume some were more expensive than regular Asda products."
