Earn Avios via Clubcard when buying fuel at selected Esso petrol stations

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?

Esso and Tesco have had a joint venture for some years now, with Tesco supplying the convenience stores attached to 198 Esso garages across the UK.

You have always been able to collect Tesco Clubcard points when buying food at these Tesco stores.  However, you have not been able to collect Clubcard points on your fuel purchase.

Starting immediately, all that has changed.  You now earn 1 Clubcard point for every £3 spent on fuel in an Esso petrol station which has a Tesco attached.

The earning rate on grocery transactions in petrol stations remains at 1 per £1.

Tesco Esso

This is not as generous as the 1 point per £2 earned at Tesco-branded garages.  However, if you use the Esso garages on a regular basis then it is definitely an improvement.

Take a look here for more details.  The FAQ confirm that you can still collect Clubcard points when paying with a Fuel Card, if your employer gives you one of those.

What is interesting is the implication that Esso is looking at the possibility of joining Clubcard as a full partner, which would let you earn Avios at any Esso station, whether or not it has a Tesco attached.

  1. Even at 1 point per £3 it’s still a much better Avios earning rate than Shell

      Unless you are in the honeymoon period with the Shell App…then it’s competitive.

  2. Still 2.4 avios points per £3 spend
