Even so, I very rarely buy meat in there as I go to a local butcher and sometimes get my vegetables from good old Riverford.

Short of driving 15 miles into Exeter every week, shopping in the local Tescos is my inevitable destiny.
So obviously I have a Clubcard and I usually do very nicely out of it. We have had tickets to theme parks, subscriptions to magazines, saved them up to (almost) pay for my daughter's laptop, etc. Lovely job, thank you. Would rather you just made my groceries cheaper, but hey, might as well get what you can!
So, to the point. We have really big bags (mostly Tesco ones) to take to the supermarket, to
Always in the past we have been given 2-3 green points for a big bag and 4 for a box, because if you used their carriers, that is probably the number of bags you would use.
Two weeks ago we had a big shop (£140 worth) and when I got home I noticed that I had only been given 7 bag points. I'd like to see someone get all that shopping in 7 carrier bags. I think that may warrant a visit from the Guinness Book of World Records. I'd then like to see them pick up the bags and carry them!
This week (just over £100) I was only given 5 points. So I complained. Believe me when I say this does not come naturally to me (unlike my Marathon Runner).
Evidently since Christmas, they have been told that one bag = one point. Doesn't matter if the bag is the size of a small country. It's still one point.
So all of this:
will go into one carrier bag, right?
