Tip Of The Day

Shop at Tesco after 6pm and never forget your Clubcard. You get 3x the points after 6pm.

Also, when choosing a checkout, keep an eye open for anyone between 18 and 25 years old. There is a strong possibility that they are buying a large amount of alcohol and they won't be using a Clubcard.

....Ask them if you can have their points, they never refuse.
