Tesco introduces shopping substitutions you’re not going to be upset about

We’ve all been disappointed when our shopping order arrives with loads of substitutions, but thanks to Tesco Mobile some shoppers will now be praying for a substitution…

The Tesco Mobile Grocery Super Substitutions promotion runs from 1000 on April 7th until 1600 on April 18th, at selected stores offering Click & Collect.

During this promotional period, customers placing a Click & Collect order that contains an item from the list below will be entered into a random draw to potentially see it replaced with something more, erm, substantial.

So, for example, an order for apples could turn into an Apple iPhone SE, or Tesco laundry tablets might switch into a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.

The substitutions in full:
  • Freshly baked bread rolls for a Motorola E7
  • Apples for an Apple iPhone SE
  • Galaxy Milk Chocolate Bar for a Samsung Galaxy S21 5G
  • Tesco laundry tablets for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7
  • Pampers Active Fit Nappies for a Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 Black 
  • Gnocchi for a Nokia 3.4
  • Frozen cod for Apple Airpods 
  • Galaxy chocolate drink for a Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
  • Mini Cheddars for an Apple iPhone 12 Mini 
  • Cotton Buds for Samsung Galaxy Buds Live.

Just in case the ordered item required is actually still wanted, Tesco will kindly still include the original item too.

The stores taking part in the promotion are as follows:
  • Glasgow Silverburn Extra, 751 Barrhead Road, Glasgow
  • Twickenham Extra, Mogden Lane, Isleworth
  • Stretford Extra, Chester Road, Old Trafford, Stretford, Manchester
  • Swansea Cadle Extra, Pontardulais Road, Cadle, Fforest-fach, Swansea
  • Portsmouth Extra, Clement Attlee Way, Cosham, Portsmouth
  • Dudley Extra, Town Gate Retail Park, Birmingham Road, Dudley
