Important dates for your diary

Here is the latest edition of our fortnightly weekend feature which summarises offers which are ending soon. It pulls together the different deals mentioned on our Avios Promos, Hotel Promos, Credit Card Updates and regular article pages.

  3. Peter Taysum says:

    No cards around Newcastle/Durham. Tesco customer services have advised me to go to customer services in store, ask for them to be ordered. They can’t guarantee, but it would be looked at…

    • Was chatting to the staff member in Bradford tesco today who confirmed they had been told not to sell more than 5 cards to any customer. He said it was a head office instruction to avoid ‘club card fraud’.

      • I bought 8 today – in 2 batches of 4 – took half a dozen attempts and 3 tills to get them to go through but we got there in the end! Every time I buy them there are problems at the till and a large queue always forms behind me!
