A savvy shopper has called out Tesco claiming their 'Clubcard prices' appear to be the standard price in other shops.

Kat, who posts online as @Katsaves, is known for sharing videos of her favourite money-saving tips and most recently looked into the deals you get with a Tesco Clubcard.

The loyalty scheme is meant to give members big discounts on their weekly shop, by earning points and vouchers or even just picking up some of their items marked with a 'Clubcard Price' for less.

But Kat claims the card is only giving customers the illusion that they're saving money.

She found the same items on the Sainsbury's website on sale for the same price as a so-called Clubcard discount.

In a TikTok video, which has racked up more than 12,000 likes, Kat showed a pack of Mr Kipling Chocolates Slices on the Tesco shelves – with the regular price being £3.45 or £1.85 with a Clubcard.

But it just took one Google search to find the same sweet treats on a deal for £1.72 at Sainsbury's. The prices were the same for the Lemon Slices too.

She then moved on to the Alpro Almond Milk, which was on sale at the regular price of £1.95 or £1.25 with a card. The price at Sainsbury's was only 10p more than the Clubcard deal at £1.35.

For a jar of Dolmio Bolognese Sauce, the regular price was £2.20, while the Clubcard deal was £1.50. The same jar is available at both Sainsbury's and the Co-op for £1.50.

In the caption, Kat asked: "Debunking Clubcard prices! Is it really cheaper with a Clubcard or just a marketing gimmick?!"

Her followers were left stunned and took to the comments to give their opinion on the prices.

One user said: "Food, in general, has gotten so expensive."
