Tesco shopper gobsmacked to find online delivery fruit substituted with iPhone

A supermarket shopper was left with his jaw on the floor after ordering a bag of apples from Tesco only for them to substitute the buy with an iPhone.

Nick James, 50, collected his shopping from a Tesco Extra in Twickenham only to be told that there was a “surprise” inside by staff.

And, he was gobsmacked when he opened it and spotted the iPhone SE in the click and collect order.

He told the Mirror: “I was half expecting the surprise to be an Easter egg or something – I was a little bit shocked to say the least.”

The unusual gift was given away as part of Tesco Mobile’s latest promotional campaign.

Customers who order with click and collect this week could be rewarded with a “super substitution” – including Apple iPhones, Samsung’s and AirPods.

Tweeting about his win earlier this week, Nick said: “A big thanks this week to Tesco and Tesco Mobile.

“On Wednesday evening we went to pick up our click and collect order and had a little surprise in there – an Apple iPhone SE.

“Apparently we ordered apples and randomly got an apple iPhone! Made my son’s week!”

Tesco shoppers who order through the online service are chosen at random to receive the tech items in their basket.

So, a bag of apples could be substituted with an Apple iPhone, or shoppers could see their Tesco laundry tablets swapped for a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.

Tesco Mobile has announced it is giving away 80 items in total until April 18 at a handful of stores.

You also need to buy particular items to be in with a chance of bagging the prize.

These are:

  • Frozen cod for Airpods
  • Apples for an iPhone SE
  • Mini Cheddars for iPhone 12 Mini
  • Baked bread rolls for a Motorola E7
  • Tesco laundry tablets for Samsung Galaxy Tab 7
  • Galaxy Milk Chocolate Bar for Samsung Galaxy S21 5G
  • Galaxy chocolate drink for Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
  • Pampers Active Fit Nappies for Samsung Galaxy Fit 2 Black
  • Cotton Buds for Samsung Galaxy Buds Live
  • Gnocchi for Nokia 3.4
