Back in the day, around 4-5 years ago it was perfectly possible to do this quite often but then Tesco learned how to add up and removed the glitches until the other day when Josh Knight, 17, from Bristol paid £1 for his 59p Jaffa Cakes. The machine then spat out £1.41 change…
Of course he went to twitter to tell everyone and for that we love him, his response to Tesco was also priceless!

@JoshKnight98 Hi Josh, thanks for getting in touch. I expect you to enjoy those Jaffa Cakes since we're paying you! 1/2— Tesco (@Tesco) May 23, 2016
@Tesco they were spot on— Josh (@JoshKnight98) May 23, 2016
@JoshKnight98 Could you DM me the store so I can get the till checked? If you have your receipt, could you send a pic? Thanks - Dafydd 2/2— Tesco (@Tesco) May 23, 2016
