Considering I have the Nectar app, Sainsbury's are still dishing out paper vouchers in addition to the weekly ones on the app. A complete waste of paper as they're still not tightly targeted to my shop compared to the app.

I mean they've only *just* added having your nectar card on your wallet to the ios one.

Tesco changed to a more complex qr code on their app and the scanners on SAYS really don't like it as much as the older one

Tell you what annoys me. The paper petrol vouchers that only last a set time. Given they have the tech to be able to vary the price of petrol based on your clubcard (as shown during that excellent offer a few years ago) I wish they'd just make the whole thing automatic. Unless it's also a wheeze to get you to go into the shop and spend more than the £3 you're actually saving.
Even more annoying is the new generation of Sainsbury's unstaffed petrol stations, which have no ability to accept the "10p off a litre" vouchers (advertised in the adjoining store as an inducement for spending £20 on TU clothing, for example).

When you get to the petrol pump you see an A4 notice bearing a half-hearted apology for their IT shortcoming, and a really kind and thoughtful suggestion that you should drive 20+ miles to the nearest Sainsbury's petrol station that is capable of accepting your voucher.

Surely they could invite customers to take their voucher and fuel receipt into the store to be reimbursed for the promised discount. They already manage to do this at many stores for reimbursement of parking meter charges.

I see Morrisons, or at least the Morrisons Daily petrol station I happened to come across somewhere in the middle of nowhere up by Aberdeen, now have contactless readers on their air machine. Which at least means you don't have to search for random coins. Although the St Andrews branch did not have it which was annoying.

BTW, the thing where the carwash backs directly onto the shop building, but you don't drive around the back of the kiosk to leave. Was that a Safeway thing or is it literally just what fits best on each site?

So. First experience with Clubcard plus today. Signed up within the app and it was available to use right away. Your two Big Shop vouchers are buttons within the app that show a QR code to scan as a coupon.

However I spent £115 and only got £9.20 off. Nothing appears to be on the exclusion list however the amount would appear to equal the two sale jumpers I bought. But both are F&F so should be on the deal.

Customer Services say I should take the receipt back into store where allegedly they can see stuff on the till. :/

I've not had any paper ones for a little while since getting the new app. The bonus points "scratchcard" on the app has shot my balance up recently though.

Did anyone look at the 2019 shop summary on the app? I'm apparently a 35% Chilled Sainsbury's shopper.

Fantastic use of customer data there - my friends and family were having a good laugh at the stats it was throwing out.

Supposedly I'm a big buyer of red onions, natural yoghurt and broccoli. In fact, I was the number 1 buyer of red onions in my local store.

My stats included that I'm the number 1 buyer of Innocent Seriously Strawberry in my local store and I like to buy a lot of porridge and fruit bags.
