I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Right now, Tesco are doing a Double the Difference promotion. Basically, find it cheaper at Asda or wherever and they'll pay you double the difference. There are some bargains to be had:

1) Banrock Reserve Shiraz. £10.59 at Tesco, £5 at Asda - £11.18 back on Double the Difference.

2) Gioiosa Pinot Grigio - buy 6 and Tesco end up paying you 89p (obviously, buy a few more random items so it's not so conspicuous).

I'm sure my wife will unearth some more bargains. She just got £31 back on £32-worth of wine. She's bought some gin with it, on which she will get another £28 back.

How long before Tesco realise what a dumb idea Double the Difference is?

Think - Interesting.  Very Happy  Bet they're kicking themselves now!  I suspect there may be a vacancy in their marketing department...  Whistle

Does she have an available brother, who can perform such miracles?  Think

£20 cap, interesting.

My Mum did it just in time and got an £80+ voucher, she didn't even need to leave the house, got it all delivered. One of the biggest gains was from the fact ASDA did a special offer for some Olay make-up at like £5 a bottle but Tesco had it at around £15. She bought several of these.
