Yes nomad you are right. I appreciate  what people are saying it is free money, I think the bad feeling is because in previous years we have always got the £1 but this year they have changed it do we only get 90p.

@ penquin it doesn't matter which way round you do it 5.00 and you pay 3.60
:question:

(A) 5 -1 = 4 - 10% = 3.60
(B) - 10% = 4.50 - 1 = 3.50

If you do discount first and then do voucher it takes your discount off and then reduces it after the voucher and puts discount back on at lower amount

B would normally be less but when I used mine it took the discount off 50p then I scanned the coupon it then cancelled the discount of 50p then re applied it at 40p making it 360p to pay the same as A such a lot of messing for the sake of 10p!!

(B) - 10% = 4.50 - 1 = 3.50

Technically it should be A, Because if the discount is applied first as in B your spend is not £5 so the voucher £1 per £5 spend is not valid at all is it ?
My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.

I dunno, all the admin, printing, paper and input onto the systems, to deal with the vouchers is the usual Tesco way of making everything more difficult and costly than it needs to be.  :-X

Do away with them completely, it's only a ruse to get staff buying instore.

The "just 10p" remark reminds of the fact that almost all of us if buying an item costing £1.80 with a £2 coin we would strongly complain if we were only given 10p change  >:(

I do have a question
when using these vouchers for the shopping i was told i could use one voucher per transaction
but i am sure this isn't the case as last year i was able to use all my vouchers in one transaction.

A: shopping is £80 use all vouchers = £60.

b: shopping is £80 get a £1 off for anything over £5 per transaction, so i technically i would only be able to use  16 vouchers
this would mean doing 16 transactions with £5 products and over. this would equal £64

so which would it be ?

The till should in theory stop you using too many vouchers ie £50 spend should only use 9 vouchers after staff discount applied. Seen multiple examples of tills refusing additional coupons but seems pot luck as to when the stop applies.

Still dont get why company doesn't just hand out Tesco gift cards, or add a sum to everyone's pay. When you consider the cost of printing, handing out & then processing vouchers on tills it seems inefficient.

Years ago, as a school Saturday worker in ASDA, everyone was given a free frozen turkey voucher with your name on it, there was a couple of alternatives, for those who chose not to have the turkey. The voucher was a set amount, pre printed, and your name and employee number entered manually. The cash office staff collated the presented vouchers, and sent them off for reimbursement. They even knew who hadn't used their voucher, and chased them up to remind them.

I asked this a while ago and was told if we got cash or gift card it would be taxable, and vouchers are not, out of interest have Tesco ever paid a Christmas bonus in cash as it’s always been vouchers when I’ve worked here.

And on top of that. If vouchers are taxable then company is responsible for NIC/tax which in fact has effect on employer costs.  And with tesco we would see scale effect, so printing such vouchers is cheaper than for example cash bonus.

The vouchers we are receiving are 'low cost' and are forcing us to shop at tesco to buy specific items.
And here is funny thing. Out of all Xmas coupons there is only one item I would buy, cream, single or double. Which means that I need to spend £100 to use £1 off coupons. But what to buy at tesco?

I believe tesco would have to pay tax and national insurance if they gave us a giftcard as it would be classed as cash or a cash gift and therefore it's simpler just giving us vouchers

Such costs would be classed as operational costs and reinvestment in the business, so un taxable, it does however bring the Gross and Net profit down hard to say what the motives are, the company have gone over to all colleague bonus being taxable, which generates more for the tax man yet 25 years service award is a gift card so I would suggest that the number of eligible staff drives the company's mentality on the type of award.

My Opinion is exactly that, Mine.  Based on my view of what I know , see and what I would do.

I FEEL THE WHOLE VOUCHER THING IS DISGUSTING THE MAIN THING IS THAT WE WERE NOT TOLD WHEN WE RECEIVED THE BOOKLET FROM OUR MANAGEMENT. THEY TRYING TO KEEP IT SECRET IF YOU GO ON OUR TESCO.COM STATES A CHANGE TO HOW TO USE COUPONS ETC BUT STILL DEDUCTING 10P SO WE ONLY GETTING 90 PENCE . TUCKING US UP AGAIN NOT REWARDING. ALL SHOP AT ALDI .LIKE I DO WILL BE GIVING MY VOUCHERS TO CHARITY.

Go to Aldi even with the staff discount and vouchers Tesco offer the German's are still cheaper. Morrisons are good on price too. :)
