Dan Brown back at Tesco with 500 bonus Clubcard points – just 0.75p per Avios!

Back in February, Tesco Direct was offering you the chance to pre-order the new Dan Brown book for just £9. You got 500 bonus Tesco Clubcard points with each copy, so 1200 Avios or 1250 Flying Club miles!

Tesco quickly sold out of their pre-order allocation. Too quickly, as it turned out, because a lot of people had their orders cancelled.

More stock seems to have appeared, though, because the offer is back.

You can get 500 Clubcard points for pre-ordering the new Dan Brown book, Inferno (see here) and using code TD-MNRW at the check-out. You should actually order 2 copies, as book orders over £15 qualify for free postage!

Do NOT order more than 2 copies, though, as it is highly likely that Tesco will cancel your order.

The maths works out VERY nicely on this one, at 0.75p per Avios – and that is without any conversion bonus.

    My order for 2 copies just got cancelled after 7 days with no reason.

    Points were already in my clubcard account on May 4th so I wonder what will happen now, if I will get them in the coming mailshot.

    • I got the canceled order email last night after a week as well. I bet the publishers aren’t happy. Tesco refusing to take per orders of a book. I kept getting a message that there were no more available last week before finally getting the order accepted. How can you not have enough of something that hasn’t been printed jet?

        And despite the cancelled order they are still accepting pre orders on the website, but not with the promo points any more. Very cheeky on their part.

        Because of the timing, having made the pre order before the quarterly cutoff date for points, and then them cancelling it after this date, they haven’t been able to deduct the points. So maybe it will work out in my favour. I wonder if they ever give you a negative clubcard balance in such an instance?

          Mine was cancelled last night as well….total joke.

            My order was similarly cancelled on Tuesday night without any reason given. This was actually my first ever order from Tesco so there couldn’t be any issue of having having prior form. I find the point made above about negative points interesting though. Can anyone tell me when the miles would be expected to arrive in my Avios account.
