Blog: Dean BestAnother act of generosity from Tesco?

Dean Best | 18 August 2009

Hot on the heels of Tesco's "Double Points on Clubcard" relaunch comes another 'offer' from the UK's largest - and apparently most generous - retailer.

A cash machine at a Tesco store in west London attracted a huge queue after it emerged it was dishing out double the amount of money requested.

"This was thankfully an extremely rare operational error. We will not be trying to recover the money," a Tesco spokesperson told London's Evening Standard.
