Looks like she charged you 3 times for the beer (€20+20+20) on top of the shopping - then again, who knows.

Definitely cut & paste that post into an email and fire it off to Tesco customer service. They'll send you a gift card for the inconvenience.

I meant main stream beers. Heineken etc. They do it in the North though.
You should pop into Aldi and try a can of "The 1079 Project". 33cl and only 89c.
4.6% and tastes good.

Yellow label on the shelf stated the offer and there was only one crate of individual cans left so I picked it up and put it in the trolley with the rest of the shopping.
I'm trying to keep the small one happy walking around while my wife pays and she calls me over and says she's being charged €126 but she doesn't have €100 of shopping so I ask the cashier if the offer has come off, he says no, he's only a trainee so he asks the "more experienced" cashier behind him and she says she'll have to check,
So I bring her to the empty shelf and show her the label with the offer,
As I'm showing her, a store worker arrives with a combi full of beer but no carlsberg so she asks him about the offer and he says they're all sold out so I say I know I have the last crate at the till, he tells the cashier you have to give it to him.
She calls a manager who looks at it for another 5 minutes and has to call another manager he tells him to honour the price.
The lady closes her till and brings up our receipt and says she's taken the carlsberg out but the bill is still €106 without the carlsberg so she adds the €20 and it goes back up to €126!!!!
Now the queues are huge behind us and we're mortified but feck that I'm not leaving it,
She asks another cashier walking past to have a look who just scans the crate barcode and brings the bill even higher!!
My wife says no this isn't good enough and she empties all her shopping out and tells the lady to rescan everything so the bill comes to €66 and she still can't get her head around adding the €20 for the carlsberg and starts telling me "ok so I'll honour the €1.99 a can" which is also printed on the label and I say no because that will be almost €48 instead of €20 so she has to call over the manager again who is on his own till and he asks me how much is €20 divided by 24 so I tell him .83 and he puts it in manually and says I have 24 of them.
35 minutes later with a tired 18 month old, a pissed off wife, queues of people down the aisles but I got my beer.
Headless chickens would be a compliment.
Won't be going back any time soon.

Great first world problem story that

@offtopic :ideally , when a can is 1.99 and there's an offer 24 cans for 20 euro, the till software 'knows' you have a qualifying item for an ongoing promotion and applies the discount on the spot.
If you bring 24 individual cans on top of a slab carton ( 24 singles or 4x6pack with the flimsy neck plastic ring) the till person could be tempted to drag the carton ( with the cans) across the glass-scanning area : maybe you get lucky and it scans first the vertical sensor, catching the barcode from the can; maybe it scans the slab barcode , at a different price ; the person at the till doesn't care...( apologies for the long text )

@ontopic : any good deals on dunnestores? i got some 10 off 40e in the post from them , and wanna use it

Definitely do this. I emailed tesco before about the "4 for €10" constantly not working and having to walk the cashier down and show her each individual beer and the offer beside it.
They sent me a gift card with €15 on it!!

Re: the Dunnes wine deal, based on the ad in today's Independent, it is valid until 12th October and applies to ANY 6 bottles of wine or champagne.
It seems to be instead of the usual 25% back in points or 5% off any 6 bottles.
