Tips To Save More Money When Shopping at Tesco Lotus
Buy in bulk.
Like in most cases, you can save more money if you buy in bulk–be it rice, water, or rolls of toilet paper. If you are planning to stay a bit longer in Koh Samui, stock up on your essentials. Buy cereals, instant noodles, beer, bar soaps, laundry detergent, and of course bottled water. Buying in bulk will minimize having to go out multiple times—saving you time and money.
Use the club card.
The Tesco ClubCard allows you to earn points which you can turn to discount coupons. You also have a chance to earn prizes whenever they have promotions for card holders.
Take advantage of the Tesco line.
The beauty of shopping here is the fact that you can access products from the Tesco brand. Sure there is no problem sticking to your usual brands but if you try a Tesco item here and there, you will realize that their products offer you standard quality for less baht. They have amazing shampoos, kitchen cleaning products, body washes, and dishwashing liquids. Try some of them. If you are uncomfortable starting with a body product, try their teas or their condiments. Some of the best from the Tesco line are their pickles, hot chocolate drink, spices like cardamom and cinnamon, and the Tea Tree and Mint Shampoo. They also have giant bottles of fabric softeners, toilet cleaners, and even baby skincare products such as baby bath, baby shampoo, and baby lotions.
Watch out for seasonal promotions.
Make it a habit to check their site and read their brochures to know what items are currently on sale.
