General Questions When does the 20% Privilegecard discount start? After 6am on Monday 6 July 2015. When does the 20% Privilegecard discount end? After 11pm on Sunday 12 July 2015.

An item I bought during the Privilegecard double discount is faulty, can I exchange the item or get a refund? Yes, you can return the item for an exchange or refund. As per the existing store and online processes, the value of the refund will be the value you paid after your Privilegecard discount was deducted.
If I do not have a Privilegecard yet (i.e. I have not served six months at Tesco/my card is lost or stolen), can I still take part in the offer? If you have not yet qualified for a Privilegecard as you have less than six months service you will not be able to take part in the offer. If you do have a Privilegecard but it is lost, stolen, or damaged, you should ask your Personnel Manager to order you a new card or you can request a replacement card here. If you have not received your new card in time to use it during the double discount period, you will need to keep your receipts, get them signed by the Store Manager or Personnel Manager in store, and take them back to the customer service desk once your new card has arrived to get your 20% colleague discount refunded.

How do I get a new Privilegecard if my card has been lost or stolen? As mentioned above, please speak to your Personnel Manager who will fill in a form to notify the colleague discount team that your card has been lost or stolen and that your require a replacement.

Your card should take 3-4 weeks to arrive. What should I do if my Privilegecard has expired and I have not received my new one? Although we try to ensure that new cards reach colleagues before their old cards expire, we are aware that sometimes this doesn’t happen. If this happens during the double discount period, in order to claim your Privilegecard discount when your card arrives, please keep your receipts and get them signed in store. When your card arrives please take them to the customer service desk where you will get a refund of your discount.

Appendix 1 – Alcohol Alcohol products excluded from the double discount event Due to changes in the law around alcohol pricing, there are a small number of alcohol products which cannot be included in your normal Privilegecard discount and are also excluded from your double discount. The prices on some products are so low that if we apply a discount we would be selling the product for less than the duty plus VAT minimum price. Consequently we have removed the lines below from the discount scheme. You can still enjoy your discount on all other alcohol products.
