Tesco Giving Out Free Cards?

tesco are not i repeat not giving away free cards believe me i know
there was an offer which has ending when you got 1 free pack when you spend 10
people saying i got nine packs free are lying and wasting people's time
if you got 9 free packs you must have stolen them.
the tins have been reduced this week to 3.97 that is the only new offer this week
like i said i know that they are not giving them away if you were given 9 free packs then the person who gave them to you is risking their job and people don't usually risk their job over 4.50 they have security cameras everywere in tesco's
tesco can not give packs away as everything has to be scanned otherwise when there is a stock take there will be questions asked
so please just tell the truth and stop lying it is not big and not clever

as i am a manager of a department in a tesco store i have not heard of cards being given away for free you get updates daily
i am only telling you this because i am fed up with my son coming home saying "johnnie says he's got limited edition david james" which is not true
you can believe what you like an adult or a child but every tesco store is the same

Here in South Wales where I live they have been giving 1 or 2 packets away the last few days no matter how much you spend. The customer in front of me did not want theirs and gave them to me, plus I know the person on the checkout and managed to get 5 more packets. previous to that they were doing the same deal on odd selected days. So to sum up its different accross the UK as to how many and how often the packets are given out according to how much you spend and is probably up to the store manager to make the descision.
I wonder what the response would be when trying to blag a box !!!
my store is merthyr tydfil,what is yours

i wrote what i did to help people not to be called names or have where i live dissed.
i didn't want loads of people going to tesco's wasting their time because some people are confused
the promotion was 1 free packet for every 10 spent hardly "free" great if you spend 100 every week
sorry if i've upset anyone
but i still maintain that you can not walk into any tescos buy nothing and say to the person behind the counter give me some free match attax.

Oh, I never said I bought nothing.

I bought lunch and some bread
so you paid money to cards for "free"
please answer in a sensible fashion or there is no point in this forum

No, there is no point on giving up on the forum, and he probobly means he bought lunch and bread, asked for some packets and they said,

"Have them for free."

let me start again my local tescos is merthyr tydfil south wales
if i was to walk in right now and ask for free match attax they will say no.
has anyone walked into tescos personally bought nothing and walked away with free match attax?
please answer honestly as you are not helping anyone who will go to their local tesco only to be dissapointed
there was an offer a few weeks ago that when you spent 10 you got one pack free
if your store has given you free packs name them and when you got them please

whoa whoa lets not take sides here

ANT is a manager of Tesco (I believe) so he should have the right to undertand that if a shop's not doing what it's suposed to do (even if they're doing something good natured) he should have the right to report it. He will want to make sure he has his facts right before he does so. He could want to know for any reason, but he is entitled to, although I dont really agree with the way he does it.

but following on from my last post, what will have happened with Rob PBS is that he bought something, anything, and was given multiple packets. They were all free, one in the boundry of the special offer, and the others being additional as many other people who the offer is open to do not take their free packets. Some tescos have grasped that this is a reasonable way to get rid of stock and so this is how they do it.

Is there any problem here, or am I missing something?
thank you masterofmatchattax i am not a spy for tescos and i don't usually get involved in these type of things i just wanted to pass on the knowledge i have to help people
this forum has helped me save money and i just wanted to help others
i think i will stay silent from now on
