Tesco Game, Set and Match

Some of my readers will have been in Blogland long enough to remember Henry’s Tesco Game: to cut a long story short, it was a legal way of leaving Tesco with more money than you started with, and your shopping as well.

I’ve recently been playing a 21st Century version of the game, recycling everything recyclable at the Tesco recycling bank in exchange for Clubcard points – last Summer I collected enough points that all my holiday grocery shopping was free, which made the effort worthwhile.

Over the last few weeks the machine has been playing up, either not recognising my Clubcard or recognising it but not giving me any points. Last night it gave me “nil points” in return for 80 recycled items, and it’s had its last chance: from now on, it goes in the recycling bin.
