If you shop at Tesco you earn Clubcard vouchers. Vouchers equate to prizes in Tescoland. Yes they do.

You can exchange your vouchers for Hilton vouchers, to a princely ratio of 1:4 (£50 of Tesco vouchers becoming £200 of Hilton vouchers). The genius of my wife led her to suggest a break in Edinburgh at the Caledonian Hilton hotel; a 5-star hotel, no less. Good work.

Imagine, if you will, discovering that the 5-star rating doesn't cover basic language skills:

It is quite likely that this was read by a proofreader but that the client did not want to have the changes made.
