Wonder what happened here then? Tesco licensed the photo from Getty Images and Mel B's agent but it seems nobody told Mel B herself. The whole Clubcard Plus ad campaign is piss poor anyway.

I wonder if the story was updated after you posted? It now explains all.

But you're right, it's pretty shoddy branding. They can't seem to decide whether the 'plus' lozenge goes next to 'Clubcard' or the entire stacked 'Tesco Clubcard' bit.

Yes, she's posted a new Instagram since then clarifying that she's upset the ad didn't have a more prominent mention of the Women's Aid charity. Before that it looked as though she was completely unaware of her involvement in the ad.

The campaign is shockingly bad. It looks like it was done by school kids. I have no idea what its meant to be.

The whole Clubcard Plus thing appears to be an attempt to get the home delivery customers back into the shops.

I got mildly excited when I first realised that for £7.99 a month I could potentially get £30.00 discount a month from two £150.00 shops.

I then read the small print and discovered that you only get the discount on shops you do in store. Home delivery is excluded.

I'm damned if I'm actually going into a shop, where I'd have to mix with all those smelly customers.

No thanks, Tesco, you can stick your Clubcard Plus where the sun doesn't shine.

I'm glad you pointed that out - I managed to miss that caveat in both my Clubcard statement and a flyer from the shop. We do our big shop online not to avoid other people, but for the more practical reason that we don't have a car.

Just had a look at the FAQ on the website. One of the answers includes "Full details of terms and conditions can be found on the Clubcard Plus website (tesco.com/clubcard/clubcard-plus)."
Which seems amateur - it's not a link; the URL irks me for having the word 'clubcard' twice; and it's the page I'm already on, dammut.

Aldi, Tesco, and Asda all in the headlines for the wrong reasons this Christmas.

At Aldi, people bought fresh turkeys use by date December 26, but they were rancid by Christmas Eve.

Same story at Tesco.

While Asda sold out, sending home delivery customers drumsticks or a completely different meat instead of the turkey they ordered:

Whilst on the subject of returning rancid turkeys to Tesco, has anyone else noticed that they've recently started taking back your Clubcard points when they give you a credit for anything which originally earned points?

It never used to happen and was a nice little bonus but they seem to have noticed the loophole and have knocked it on the head.

You mean rejecting online deliveries or returning stuff at the customer service desk?

In the case of the latter I've always found it depends on how they process the refund.

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.
