1,200 Avios with a Tesco Wine order and 600 Avios with Google Chromecast

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 has launched two new promotions offering bonus Clubcard points which would convert into a decent chunk of Avios points or Virgin Flying Club miles.

500 Clubcard points for spending £60 at Tesco Wine

Via a new moneysavingexpert.com code, you will receive 500 Clubcard points when you spend £60 at Tesco Wine.  500 Clubcard points is worth 1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles.  If you don’t want to use the points for airline miles, this page on our sister site Shopper Points shows the best value Tesco Clubcard Boost redemptions.

This offer is open to everyone, whether or not you are an existing Tesco Wine customer.

The discount code you need is XXPPGG.  You must spend £60 and place your order by Sunday 11th October.  The code will work a maximum of 3,500 times.

Delivery is free if you spend over £50, which you will be.  The code works OK even if you order some of their discounted cases.

The Tesco Wine home page is here.

Tesco Wine 350

250 Clubcard points with Google Chromecast

Tesco Direct has launched a promotion with the 2nd generation (with a new round shape) Google Chromecast – see here.

This is a device which plugs into your TV’s HDMI socket and allows you to send selected content from your laptop, phone or tablet to your screen.  It is especially useful if you are a Netflix subscriber as it is an easy wire-free way to get your Netflix content onto your TV.

You don’t usually see these discounted, so getting 600 Avios or 625 Virgin Flying Club miles for your £30 spend is a decent deal.

The offer runs until October 16th, so if it is out of stock when you look, keep checking back.  The link to buy is here.

  1. Hi,

    How long has this promotion been running with the code XXPPGG ? Because when I try to use it, it says that I have already used this code ?

    Thank you

    • I believe yesterday.it was working at 3.30pm i guess it has gone already (EDIT by Raffles: no it hasn’t, see below)

      • Thank you Idrive – though I did try to use the code yesterday morning when I received Martin Lewis’ email with it in :-) hmm odd :-)

      • No, working fine as at 8.55

      • well I thouth 3500 would have been reached easily by the MSE/HFP audience, thanks for editing. Maybe it depends on the account?

        • They never seem to hit their caps. They are not stupid – they don’t want to lose any orders. If they expect 3,000 orders, tney set a cap of 3,500 to make it seem urgent that you order, but Tesco still maximises the money they take in.

  2. The Chromecast is a good deal too. I have original one. Gr8 for Netflix, YouTube etc.

    • You are actually getting 30 + 250, so 280 CC points, 672 Avios. :-)

    • Not sure about the ‘etc’ – the only other mainstream service it runs is iPlayer (I don’t count NowTV!) – although it is more useful with an Android phone, which I don’t have, as you can stream anything from inside your browser.

      Why ITV Player refuses to join I don’t know.

      • Hmm, might be useful for my parents. They used to be able to get Youtube and iplayer through their TV, but then Samsung updated the software to discontinue the service. Mind you, having to get the stuff up on the computer before streaming it to their TV might be a bit faffy for them.

      • Erico1875 says:

        Now TV too

        • I’ve got a Chromecast with a three month free trial of Now TV and can confirm it is useless – with the possible exception of Sky Atlantic if you’re into Sky Atlantic’s brand of quality US stuff.

  3. Chris Ruddy says:

    Code still worked for me, as of 8:59.

    I’ve not finished my last order yet !

  4. doog1000 says:

    At 500 points this is half the typical £60 spend offer promoted via MSE.
    I think we should resist this one so they will feel the need to return to the typical 1000 Clubcard points!

    • Peter Taysum says:

      This is the second 500 points recently, Raffles pointed out the last one. Maybe Tesco’s huge drop in profits have something to do with it. I don’t think an individual protest will be noticed, I’m fairly sure all the codes will be used, so you just miss out on the offer (which is your choice of course!)

      I think they’ve devalued the offer as it’s still taken up, given Tesco more profit.

      OT

      Tesco didn’t credit me for points buying gift cards online back in May. After a lot of hassle it turns out it was a system fault that I’ve been advised will be corrected before November payout. It’s affected many people so perhaps other people on HfP. Just to advise what they’ve told me…

      Any pay,com cards in the North East? Or en route to Powys, I’ve not found any for months :-(

      • Tesco seems to be drying up (some say forever) but you can get them in Morrisons very easily. Why? £100 of pay.coms gives you 10p off per litre of petrol. You can use as many as you like when filling up. So £1000 of pay.coms = £60 off when you fill up with 60 litres (max 100 litres if you have a lorry or some jerrycans lol). Broadly similar to Tesco, where £1000 = 3000 TCC points = 7200 Avios (+ your MRs).

        • Harry, just checking in what way is morrisons similar avios earning to tesco, as we can’t convert morrisons points, or can we? Do you mean in petrol price saving? Tnx

          • Just similar in monetary value terms, with Avios generally reckoned to be worth anywhere between 0.65p-1p, Morrisons petrol saving (cash) is very similar to the value of Tesco—>Avios for the same £1000 of pay.coms.

            Morrisons availability of pay.coms? I’m in the South West and they’re everywhere, maybe it’s our local cards rep or something – or maybe further upcountry people have cottoned onto the free tank of petrol opportunity.

        • Sussex Bantam says:

          Hi Harry – whereabouts in the country are you finding play.com in Morrisions. I’ve checked my three local stores and found nothing. Lots of Amazon cards but no sign of pay.com …

  5. Is the tesco to avios bonus never coming back? Wasnt it usually once a year?

    • My gut feeling was that BA stopped conversion bonuses because they knew a devaluation was coming and didn’t want to be accused of encouraging transfers under false pretences. Doesn’t explain why it has been quiet since April though ….

  6. I’ve tried to use the code again and it is still saying that I have used it against the order.

    I have not placed an order for wine since 22nd September using a code, how could it be the same one if it is a new code ?

  7. I just tried to order some wine from the computer in a hotel in Nova Scotia.
    It refused to open the page because it was selling alcohol!!
    Probably because alcohol is sold in provincial government shops here, which are very good.

  8. Computer said no to me also what is going on?

  9. Just tried dummy order with Tesco Wine and code still giving 500 bonus CC points at at 3.30pm Fri

  10. Just for info code still working at 21:42 Friday. I am a bit of a wine geek. In my opinion Tesco are a bit lame in general on the wine front but a good everyday white quaffer is their “finest” albarino which is “on special” at the moment .

  11. thanks Harry – I have even tried it on my husband’s Clubcard account, but computer says ‘No’ lol

    I will contact them and enquire :-)
