Tesco Clubcard is one of the largest loyalty schemes in the UK. With tens of millions of active users it’s no surprise it is extremely popular. In this article we’re going to cover everything you need to know about your Clubcard and how to get the most out of it. We’ll even cover how to change address with Tesco and new options that have presented themselves in light of COVID-19.
Tesco Clubcard & COVID-19
Before we get started let’s talk about the elephant in the room. We’re all probably talking or thinking about the Corona virus on a daily basis. And that’s not surprising. But you may be curious to know how it affects Tesco Clubcard and others (such as boots, nectar etc…). This week it has been confirmed that Tesco’s loyalty scheme is still active, notwithstanding the current climate.
Furthermore, you can still collect points by shopping in store, at the petrol station, online, Tesco bank and Tesco mobile. All of the Tesco Clubcard points you have accrued can still be spent during this period in the same way. However, it’s worth remembering that it’s unlikely you can spend the vouchers at some of the partners. Any outdoor activities or restaurants are most likely closed, so you would need to wait until they re-open to spend them there.
If you’re concerned about your Tesco Clubcard points expiring, don’t be! Tesco have recently confirmed that they are extending the expiry date by 6-12 months.
Getting the most out of your Tesco Clubcard
As you may know, with Tesco you receive 4 points for every £1 that you spend and each point is equivalent to 1p. This equates to a 4% “discount” on Tesco’s products and services if you spend your points directly in Tesco. However, if you use your vouchers on other goods and services you will be able to leverage a much greater ROI.
If you use the Tesco Reward partners you can expect 3X the value. This means for every £1 you spend on Tesco’s goods or services you get 12p worth of rewards or services with their partners – not bad! So, if your goal is to maximise the benefit of your points the trick is to spend your points with the reward partners and not with Tesco directly. Of course, you may not like any of the partners Tesco has in which case you could either ‘bank them’ or spend them in store instead. Sea life is a great example of a partner of Tescos.
Updating details with Tesco
Also, Tesco Clubcard is really easy and straight forward to use. It’s straightforward to do things like change your personal details and update your address with them. This stuff can be done online, automatically and if you have any queries the customer service team are always very helpful
