Reminder about Tesco’s “150 Clubcard points (360 Avios) for buying £50 of gift cards” promo

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (www.shopperpoints.co.uk), which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

Just a quick reminder that Tesco’s promotion to earn 150 Tesco Clubcard points for buying £50 of non-Tesco gift cards in-store is still running. That is worth 360 Avios airmiles or 375 Virgin airmiles.

Here is my last post on this deal. As we are in the last few points-earning weeks of this quarter, you may want to jump in. Gift cards do make great Christmas gifts, after all!

They have finally got around to advertising this in my local Tesco Metro, but no expiry date is given. The leaflets also state that points will be added to your next statement, which is wrong – they go on your receipt immediately.

Two quick hints:

You can mix and match to get to the £50, as long as you don’t buy Tesco’s own or the Visa-branded cards

Neither B&Q nor Cineworld take Amex instore (Cineworld now does online) so buying those gift cards with an Amex is a way of pushing up Amex spend if you are working towards a BA 2-4-1 voucher

  1. Tempting, especially as we need to hit some minimum card expenditure.

    Do we know if this is a once-off £50 offer or if the multiplier works – e.g. 300 points for £100 etc?

    • It multiplies up (said someone on Flyertalk) who bought £100-worth and got 300 points. However, as they don’t sell anything in denominations above £50 anyway, I think, there seems little point taking the risk. Remember Tesco and Visa-branded cards don’t count.

  2. Thanks.

    My interest would be in stocking up just in case we don’t otherwise hit spending targets for our two new cards.

    If we get additional points, so much the better.
