Trolleychecker - the easy way to spend less at Tesco
You might have been keenly following the recent saga of Tesco’s Double The Difference price comparison refund malarkey, and the way it was withdrawn when savvy shoppers began taking advantage of it.
Some were claiming refunds in excess of £100, which displeased the Tesco overlords, so they put a cap on refunds, to the tune of £20. Then, by way of further discouraging shoppers from comparing and claiming, they withdrew the list of items that were compared from the Pricecheck website, citing a technical hitch. It has never returned.
Thankfully, there’s Trolleychecker.com, which was set up by David Whitehouse of Middlesbrough. It trawls through the Tesco and Asda websites and collates the items that are cheaper at Asda. Then, according to the site, all you do is…
Select items which are cheaper to buy at Asda than Tesco
Buy those items at Tesco, but none which are cheaper at Tesco as the price comparison is made on your whole transaction. You can bulk out your shopping with items which are the same price at Tesco and Asda

Check your email. You will receive an email with a link to your results. If you have bought correctly you will have a voucher to print off up to the value of £20

It’s not the mad free-for-all that it was a few weeks ago, but hey, as Tesco say, every little helps.
