When will Tesco ever learn?! Hopefully not for a while.

On Tesco Direct, there is an offer for 1,000 bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order the video game ‘Call of Duty : Ghosts’ for £40 on Xbox 360 or PS3. This is not a bad deal – especially as code TD-G9DW gets you a further £5 off, so you won’t lose much if you sell the game on ebay later (using the Head for Points affiliate link, hopefully!).

However, in store, something even more interesting is back!

Call of Duty

Tesco is offering 1,000 bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order ‘Call of Duty : Ghosts’ for £5! This is 2,400 Avios points or 2,500 Flying Club miles for just a fiver.

How it is meant to work is that you get a display box scanned at the check-out, pay £5, and receive a special receipt. Visit the store on the day the game is released (5th November) and you are guaranteed to get a copy and you will get your £5 back as a discount. The 1,000 bonus Clubcard points are credited with the pre-order payment.

There is no obligation to ever buy the game when it is eventually released. This means that you can treat this as a chance to buy some Avios airmiles for 0.2p each!

You need to be very careful not to overdo this promotion. Tesco has removed bonus points in the past. Buying one copy is obviously fine, two is probably OK, especially if you buy one of the Xbox versions and one of the PlayStation versions. I would get very nervous beyond two copies (one of each).

The boxes tend to be on a separate stand to the usual video games. You take an empty box to the checkout, it is scanned, but you do not keep the box – it goes back on the shelf. You will only tend to find these in larger Tesco stores. Note that the yellow label on the edge of the shelf will say 500 bonus points, although it goes through the till as 1,000 bonus points.

There is no stated closing date for this offer, although it is only likely to run for a few days …..
