I don't ever remember seeing so many new members join in such a short time. Loads have joined this month and it's good to see some posting. I don't know how you've all found us but it certainly looks like the DTD thread is the attraction. We don't bite so please share your finds with us too, and join in with the other sections on the site as well. :)

Hi,

Thanks for the welcome, Rainbow I would share some DTD tips as I've got loads (spent ?65 and got so far ?150 in vouchers back) but for some reason I can't see the thread. Ah well must be cos I'm new

Welcome to Kelbag & TescoDan1985 :)

The Dtd thread was being "cleaned up" so vanished for a while - if you click on "new posts" at the top of the page you will get all the most popular stuff that members are posting on. It's easier than trying to find each separate section ;)

Hi!

Love the site, found it and registered last May but taking the plunge and posting for the first time tonight.

What a great site. Have learnt loads from you all, found it first of all when looking for Tesco clubcard deals. Can't believe I never used to read the Tesco literature and used vouchers at face value to pay for my grocery shopping before then :eek:

I've been back at the site a lot lately reading the DTD threads, what a brilliant scheme. Enjoyed treats of wine and Magnum mini ice creams at the weekend and was able to make a bigger donation than normal to Comic Relief too.

Looks like this lurker has become a poster :)

Thank you!

Hi

Been lurking for a while, picking up loads of tips on how to get more cc points & how to get better value for them. Mainly use mine for BA miles.

Currently enjoying this latest Tesco promo, DTD. Managed to pick up a ?65 voucher from buying Banrock. not sure I want to spend it after reading how some people have been treated.

Just do it when you are not in a big rush. Then if you get stuck at customer services or they take ages its slightly less stressful:)

Hi markagh and welcome

If you're really nervous, you can always call at CS in your store before you shop and ask how the DTD vouchers are handled and get some reassurance before you're stood with a trolley load, . CS are often better informed than till staff so take a name and then you will have a point of reference if it gets awkward at the till.

I have used 2 of these but on a normal shop - to me it is not out of the ordinary to buy 6 bottles of wine because the 5% discount takes effect.

I have had no problems - good luck and welcome x

Hi everyone. :)

I've actually been a member for a couple of years now but prior to this I've been a lurker rather than a poster (I think I have a grand total of 1 post!) because every time I log on with the intention of posting useful info someone else has got there before me!

And I've always been too shy to join in the discussions because everyone seems to be far more knowledgeable than me and I feel like I can't contribute anything useful. I'm going to try to be better about that, though... or at least quicker off the mark posting the aforementioned useful info! :)

I wish I'd found this earlier! I admit I've only posted once in 4.5 years but didn't realise a quota had been introduced and have spent several hours trying to work out what's up. I was beginning to wonder if my recent 'chat' with the security man after being caught wombling in the bin next to the cash machine (to see what the latest offer on cash machine receipts) had caused Mr Tesco to get me barred from here.

Perhaps you could PM people to let them them know the new rules as it's not obvious from any of the core General threads. It's taken a while to find this in the newbie thread.

Anyway, bit of a catch 22 as I can't post on the Tesco Clubcard forum which means I can't get to whatever the posting limit is anyway!

Hello to all on this wonderful site. I have been a 'lurker' for a few years and have become addicted to a daily (if not numerous daily) fix of PTS. I am a regular bargain hunter and cannot thank you all enough for the tips and advice given (especially in Tesco and the Bag a bargain forums). I am not great on computers, it has taken me more than 15 minutes to figure out how to post and then I saw the Post Reply button!! I will certainly try to join you all in sharing good info and tips - although by the time I have found anything useful it is usually already posted.

Thank you all again :D

I have been reinstated so that I can now read the Tesco section, but I didn't know that there was a quota or when the quota system was brought in. Perhaps someone could post the rules so that we "new posters" know what the rules are. Thank you! :help:

DaisyChain
28th March 2011, 22:26
I'm not aware of the precise rules and some things may have changed with the recent spate of forum upgrades to reflect rather more the fact that PTS generally runs like a 'co-op' with members posting info for the benefit of each other and helping out with experience and advice as well as 'sharing the work' so to speak when it comes to deal hunting. Its not really here to provide a 'service' for everyone who doesn't give as well as take, although naturally there'll always be plenty who use it that way

Nice to see some very very old members finally peeping out from behind the sofa - obviously you'll have gained loads over the years so it will be great to see what you can give, now you've made the first move.

So a big hello from me :)

I should've said before there are LOTs of ways to contribute here, not just with bargains - family matters, pets, dieting, food, school etc and just the general chit chat. We can't all shop at the right times to be first with the deals but we've all got some life experience to share :)

It's nice to see people taking the bull by the horns and joining in. Welcome! You lurkers out there will know by now that PTS is far more than just a few 'best buys' there is lots and lots going on.

You can also use the little scales (to the RHS of the post number) to say 'thankyou' to a poster. It helps people who do come up with suggestions to feel appreciated. :)

Hi all
Apologies all round to the regulars of this site! I have been a lurker for over a year and have gained so much information from you all but never got round to posting. I work very long hours (any advice on the m25 car park -I'm your girl!!) so just used to pop in and out.
It was only when I realised that I had been locked out of the Tesco forum (sorry mods for emailing) that I realised my wrong doing in not contributing:(
So I am going to try harder and contribute and hopefully it will help someone. I always get beaten to finding the offers but I'm sure I can help in other ways.

Welcome another Lulu :)
It's nice to know where the names come from.

I changed my name a while back as it was almost the same as someone on ebay - & there could have been confusion - so I changed it to "Mosaic" as I am a typical Gemini with many facets to my character :D

I just joined, couldn't post at first but I can now. I recently moved to a house and it received loads of post from Tescos along with over ?200 in Tesco vouchers. Been investigating how these people managed to get so much money in vouchers. I found a site called money saving expert and loads of stuff about double the difference but nothing on how you get these vouchers through the post. I saw the Tesco section here but it now says no threads? Help what am I doing wrong?

Hi everyone! Found this site by accident but it looks pretty good! :)

Bit of BA miles collector so you'll probably find me in the Travel section most of the time!

Hey. Found this site via Flyer talk for collecting BA miles, esp through Tesco Clubcard points. Nice to meet you all.

Hi, quick hello from me, never posted before but not a regular visitor either. Need some info on Clubcard points so looks as though I need to start posting as rules seem to have changed since last visit.

See you soon

Hi Kev

Not a lot of clubcard points around at moment - but something will turn up :)

Notice you're in Staffordshire Moorlands - is that anywhere near the zoo that was on our local news last night Blackwoods? It looks a really nice place, but they are struggling to stay open because of the recession. :(

Hi Mosaic,

Live about 5 mins from there, lovely place to visit its a shame they're struggling. Trouble is most people visit here to go to Alton Towers and then don't have time to see everything else the area has to offer.

Shame about the Clubcard points having dried up - still can't access Tesco threads to read :-(
When I first joined a few years back the codes were everywhere

You joined PTS in 2006 but you have only posted messages today.

There may be a connection

Clubcard points sadly dried up some time ago

Well done you have made the connection !! Yes of course I have revisited the site to see what, if anything, is going on regards Tesco. Haven't used them in a while but am considering starting again so thought I would re acquaint myself.
Sorry about never posting previously but this is possibly only my 2nd / 3rd visit in as many years

My DD lives in Penkridge so I take my DGD to Shugborough Hall most weeks when I babysit, think the zoo would be a bit too far :( although think we'll take her when Oh has a day off.

Like you say, a couple of years ago there were loads of points & offers about - especially the 1000 points per shop - that was my favourite :)
Never mind, something will turn up soon :rolleyes:
