Updated: Excellent Tesco deal – 442 Clubcard points (1,060 Avios) for £15 video game

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?

Tesco Direct has launched a new bonus points promotion on selected video games.  I can only imagine that this is some sort of World Cup promotion (4-4-2, geddit?) although the games on offer are not football games!

This is the special page you need to visit.

Angry Birds Star Wars

At the time of writing there are 76 games available.  The cheapest is just £15.

The 442 bonus points are immediately added to your basket when you order.

Because you would be earning 1,060 bonus Avios or 1,105 bonus Virgin Flying Club miles per purchase, this may be a deal which can be scaled up.  You could either sell the games on ebay or trade them in via CEx.

Here are a couple of examples:

God of War Ascension on PS3 – CEx is buying this for £5.  Your net cost (assuming you pick up your Tesco order to avoid postage) is therefore £10.  You are paying under 1p per Avios.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 on Xbox 360 – CEx is buying this for £11.  Your net cost is only £6 for over 1,000 Avios! 

You need to play around with the CEx page and the Tesco games list to see which appear best value.

There are also some Tesco Direct codes for NEW customers if any of your family members have not ordered before and share a BA household account with you (or have their own BA account and you don’t mind the points going there):

TDX-DLCD – £10 off £50

TDX-HQ9T – £5 off £30

You can remove all risk from this transaction.  You can pre-sell the games to CEx at the same time as placing your order with Tesco Direct, as CEx guarantees the price as long as they receive your material within 5 working days.  Tesco should be able to deliver to your letterbox (store collection not possible) within 2-3 days, giving you time to turn them around.

Note that CEx will only accept one copy of any particular game per order.  Do NOT send them multiple copies of the same game .  You will probably get a better price via ebay but it depends on how much time you want to put in.

The offer runs until May 27th.
