Users of the video platform share a method that allows shoppers to get an endless supply of sweets absolutely for free at the supermarket self-checkout.
Using a loophole with a coupon for manufacturers, people shared their success online when it came out tesco Shops with trolleys full of supposedly free sweets and drinks.
What is the Tesco method?
Tesco shoppers use a discount code at the self-checkout that works on a range of sweets.
Most coupons allow up to £5 worth of sweets, but people have found a way to use the coupons multiple times, which essentially means they can scan free sweets endlessly.
Customers take advantage of Tesco employees who are in a hurry and quickly approve the purchase without properly investigating the purchase.
However, the plan is not 100% fully provable as other videos show scammers being denied carts of candy at the checkout.
How do people get the Tesco coupons?
People search “Tesco method” on TikTok, save the videos, and then take a screenshot of the coupons.
They then scan the coupons after selecting “Finish and Pay.”
Tesco is aware of the problem, buyers have warned
The supermarket giant acted quickly to stop the scam.
