Last chance: 1,000 bonus Clubcard points with Tesco credit card ends today

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?

Today, 8th June, is your last chance to apply for the Tesco Clubcard MasterCard with 1,000 extra Clubcard points.

See here for details.

This link was sent to a select number of people by Tesco – this offer does not appear on the main Tesco MasterCard website.  I am confident that anyone who applies via the link above WILL receive the 1,000 points, whether or not they were targeted – no-one has reported any problems since this deal was launched in April.

The card has a representative APR of 18.9% variable.

If you apply today (8th) via the link above, you will receive a bonus of 1,000 Clubcard points when you make your first purchase within two months of receipt. This is worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin miles.

You also pay 0% interest on all purchases and balance transfers for 12 months, which effectively means that you can just make the minimum repayment and keep your money earning interest in the bank instead. The fee for balance transfers is a very low 0.85%.

Based on previous experience, this offer should also work with the 1,000 points ‘refer a friend’ bonus. Once you have received your Tesco credit card (yes, AFTER you have received it!) email me at raffles [at] headforpoints.co.uk and I will send you a refer-a-friend form. Post this back to Tesco and you will get a further 1,000 Clubcard points. I also receive 1,000 points for referring you.

The Tesco MasterCard is, for 99% of people, the best way to collect Avios from a MasterCard or Visa. You earn 1 Clubcard point for every £4 spent – this is calculated on a ‘per transaction’ basis, unfortunately, which is a bit of a swizz and means that your actual earning will be lower than this. However, theoretically you will be getting 0.6 Avios per £1 spent.

(The HSBC Premier MasterCard, reviewed here, is better than this, at 1 Avios per £1. However, the card has very restrictive criteria for potential applicants.)

    I would just like to add that it works out best if you use this as your clubcard in Tesco for your points (then pay with an alternative card if you wish i.e. Amex etc).
    In this way you can maximise your points when using Tesco’s Fuel Save scheme at their petrol stations i.e. every £50 shop is 2p off p/l and when using the Tesco credit card you receive 1 point p/l, where as if you just used your clubcard you would receive 0.5 p/l.
    On a personal note I then use the Santander 123 credit card to pay which gives me an extra 3% cash back on fuel.

  2. How long do the 1000pts take to post after using the card for the first time???

  3. If you apply for these cards and they give you a high credit limit, is it worth reducing the limit before applying for other cards?
