If you didn’t see Shopper Points yesterday, you won’t know that Tesco has been acting oddly!
We mentioned last week that Sunday was the last day to earn 150 Clubcard points when spending £50 on gift cards at Tesco.
This very generous deal – which allowed you to pay for a lot of your non-Tesco spending using gift cards bought in Tesco – was rarely promoted and had run for around three years. Given that these transferred into 360 Avios or 375 Virgin Flying Club miles, it was a good opportunity to pick up some miles. Then, out of the blue, Tesco added an expiry date to the gift card promotion.
Cue a lot of panic buying of gift cards ….
And what did Tesco replace the offer with?
However this offer is for a three week period only!
The offer is cumulative. This means you earn 75 Clubcard points when spending £25, 150 Clubcard points when spending £50, 225 Clubcard points when spending £75 and so on.
This offer ends on 16th October – but you never know, Tesco might just extend it or change the amount of Clubcard points yet again ……
Other Avios / Virgin via Clubcard deals still running
There a number of interesting Tesco promotions running at the moment which allow you to earn bonus Clubcard points and thus additional Avios or Virgin miles.
