Tesco double charging me anyone else?

Every now and then when I use Monzo at Tesco for example last week I bought 2 packs of cigarettes for a family member it came to £18.58.

The next morning at 0530 I get a notification for the same amount charged and it sends me overdrawn.

The Tesco I shop at doesn’t even open at 0530 :roll_eyes:

Anyone else get this?

There are about a million threads on this. It’s a flaw with how Tesco collects payments and happens to a lot of people


It seems to be fairly common with Tesco

Well at least it’s not just me :weary: I get refunded eventually not the point though.

Never happened to me and I’ve used Tesco 37 times.

Knowing my luck I’ve jinxed it now and it’ll happen next time.

They’ll wait especially for you to do a big big shop :rofl:

I always use their Tesco Pay+ app you don’t need to user Clubcard and payment card as it is all together in the app. This may explain why I have never had the problem.

It’s not all stores and it’s not that frequent

As usual I got my refund automatically today, as others have said it doesn’t happen with every transaction I looked when it last happened and it was over 2 months ago for a 60p chocolate bar.

I typically find they automatically refund the money a few days later at some obscure time of the night.

I think in future I’m going to use my credit card just to avoid the hassle and overdrawn issues because I have all my money in pots and only withdraw when I’m about to pay.

It’s happened to me three times, but not recently the last being a few months ago. Monzo should be pressing MasterCard who should be getting heavy with Tesco over it. On this forum I often read reports of it happening, and with most Monzo users not being members here how frequently does it really happen?
