1,200 Avios points with ‘The LEGO Movie’ for £10 from Blinkbox

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 is really making an effort at the moment to encourage people to use Blinkbox, its digital movie and book service.  First we had the chance to earn 100 Clubcard points for buying a £1 ebook (still running) and then 1,000 points and a free pizza when you rent ‘Game of Thrones Season 4’ (also still running).

This new offer is certainly more family-friendly than ‘Game of Thrones’!

Until August 3rd, you will earn 500 Clubcard points (1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles) when you buy ‘The LEGO Movie’ from Blinkbox.  You will also receive some vouchers for half-price entry to LEGOLAND.  Note that you need to buy the film and not rent it.

Full details can be found here on the Blinkbox website.

Even if you don’t have kids, this is a decent deal.  The movie only costs £9.99.  As you will receive 1,200 Avios back, you are only paying 0.8p per Avios point.

    Deals also stackable with the personal 50% discount code if you received it in the targeted mailshot recently.

    Are you ‘buying” the rental for life, or ‘buying’ the DVD ?

    • squills says:

      There’s no physical DVD but you can download the film and turn it into a DVD yourself if you like.

      • Singing Dwarf says:

        Within the Blinkbox terms and conditions this is not permitted – neither is copying it to a device or medium that has not yet been invented:

        12.2.7. General Restrictions: You may not transfer, copy or display the Digital Content, except as permitted in these Terms. In addition, you may not and may not attempt to:

        12.2.7.7. duplicate or otherwise reproduce (including but not limited to “burning”) the blinkbox Services, or any portion thereof or the content (including the Digital Content) contained on the blinkbox Services, onto any physical medium, memory, device or in any tangible form, including but not limited to CDs, DVDs, VCDs or any other device, including but not limited to any computers or other hardware or other medium now known or hereinafter devised.

  3. Is there a way of watching anything on Blinkbox abroad? Reading about it, it seems you have to use a UK internet provider to download/accept security things so is useless outside the UK (which defeats the purpose of buying things to watch on a plane etc)

    • squills says:

      You can save downloads to a USB stick or other media device.

      • Really? Sure it mentioned you could download to a pc only but have to connect via a UK internet provider to accept the DRM stuff.

        • i would hope thats only for rentals, (witch might be what you read it about)

          if you buy a copy, you should be 100% free to do what you like with it,

          • Of course we should. But as we all know that’s almost never the case.
            “Buy” and “store” are just marketing terms when it comes to digital content. You’re purchasing a licence to play the content according to the licensee’s terms and conditions. Which they control, naturally.

  4. Damn … wish I’d waited to do this (or just been slower & not got round to it last week) – they’ve just launched a double points promo for 3 days on Blinkbox … oh well, never mind.

    Incidentally, not something I would do, but is anyone brave enough to try & sell the Legoland half-price voucher on the well known e-auction website? From a quick look I can see it being “worth” up to £200 at a stretch, but certainly at least £50 easily. I suspect this is strictly against the T&Cs, hence my question – I don’t know how traceable they are!

    • It looks the offer is for double clubcard points for the next 3 days is per £ spent on blinkbox, not double the promational clubcard points on the lego movie or G.o.T , so 520 points for the lego movie instead of 510…..

    • squills says:

      •The voucher has no cash value. Voucher is automatically void if sold, offered for sale or if any attempt/offer is made to transfer it for value.

    • squills says:

      You can get half price tickets with a 55p packet of Quavers so I think £50 is a bit of a stretch 😉

      You can combine these with the ‘1 free adult when a child pays’ offer (plenty on Ebay for about £1.75).

  5. If you haven’t bought this yet, Blinkbox are doing double clubcard points on purchases (not double the bonus) untill 17th July. I’m happy I didn’t buy the Lego movie last week.
