I tried paying in photographs at Tesco. They declined. I'm still trying to find a petrol station that'll take them too.




Sadly I have had the same reaction too, the HMRC were downright inflexible and Natwest insisted on money as well.  Has anybody tried Asda?

Yep, they said no.

I tried my mortgage company and they said no.

I then tried the local chip shop and they said no too.

Weirdly they all wanted that stuff called money.

Well it worked for me, trading photos for goods. I asked in my local Tesco if I could pay for my shopping with photos. They agreed, saying I could have goods based on my photographic ability. 5 minutes later I exit the store, the proud owner of a Tesco Value toilet roll. Result

After a breakfast of beans on toast and a large bowl of All Bran, yes.
