New promo! 2000 Clubcard points (4,800 Avios) for £20+ of ebooks

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?

I have written before about Blinkbox, the nascent Tesco-owned online TV and video group.  Tesco is keen to use bonus Clubcard points as a way of building interest, as we saw here and here last year.

Blinkbox now has a new line of business – Blinkbox Books.  And Tesco is offering a generous bribe for you to give them a try.

Blinkbox Books

The Blinkbox Books homepage is here.

This is how the promotion works:

You receive 100 Tesco Clubcard points (worth 240 Avios, 250 Virgin Flying Club miles) for every ebook you buy

The minimum price to qualify for the 100 points is £1

You can receive the bonus on up to 20 books, for a total of 2000 Clubcard points

The last day to order is 30th June

Here are the terms and conditions in full.

However, there is a problem.

The bonus Clubcard points show in your basket at checkout.  They also show on the search page if have it present the results in list format rather than as icons.

However, it is NOT adding the bonus points when you buy a book at £1.  They only go on if you spend over £1.  (There are a few titles priced at £1.12 and £1.14 which show.)

This is clearly not what the terms and conditions, and indeed the ad I reproduce above, say.  If you plan to buy a lot of cheap £1.00 books at random purely for the bonus points, I would wait a few days until Blinkbox fixes its website.

Either that, or try to retroclaim your 100 Clubcard points later.

It is easy to find books priced at exactly £1.

Go into a category, such as ‘Childrens Fiction’, search by price and you will find 15 titles priced at exactly £1.  There are plenty more across other categories.

Blinkbox is also on both Quidco and Topcashback.  However, neither mention Blinkbox Books – not surprising, perhaps, as it only launched a couple of days ago.  It would do you no harm to go via one of these cashback portals to Blinkbox and then to Blinkbox Books, although treat any cashback as a bonus.

    Anyone noticed any improvements to allow larger basket sizes than just one book at a time ?
