Tesco ATM offers double cash
Not content with its recent announcement of double points for Clubcard holders, Tesco is now apparently giving double money at ATMs.
Living up to its slogan of “Every little helps” a faulty cash machine at one of the retailer’s London stores began issuing twice the amount requested by customers.
Tesco said an “operational error” led to the ATM at a Tesco Express store in Hounslow dispensing £20 notes instead of £10 notes.
A long queue is reported to have quickly formed at the ATM, with customers phoning friends and family. About 150 people are believed to have withdrawn up to £5,000 before the machine finally jammed.
Tesco says it will not try and recover the money.
