1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin miles (or £15 Uber credit) with a £12.50 NOW TV box – plus a Sky Entertainment / Sky Kids / Sky Cinema pass

We try to keep Tesco Direct deals on our sister site Shopper Points these days, but this offer is so good that we thought it was worth a bigger audience over here.

Tesco Direct has dropped the price of Now TV boxes to £12.50 and is still offering 500 extra Clubcard points per box.  These are worth 1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles, or £15 of Uber credit.

If you’re familiar with Google Chromecast or Amazon Fire Stick, Now TV works in the same way. It connects wirelessly to your broadband signal and allows you to stream content to your TV. As well as accessing BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 there are also lots of other channels available, many of which would otherwise require you to pay for a full satellite or cable subscription.

Until 27th November – but they are unlikely to last longer than tonight at this lower price – you will get 500 extra Clubcard points when buying a Now TV box. There are three different passes to choose from:

Now TV 500 extra Clubcard points

When we first wrote about this offer the price for a NOW TV box was £20.  This was already quite a good offer considering the possible 1,200 Avios / 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles / £15 Uber credit etc value from 500 extra Clubcard points.

Now the price has dropped to £12.50 – you’re technically getting a free NOW TV box and (via Uber or Hotels.com credit) an extra £2.50 on top!

I’m pretty sure the NOW TV boxes will be snatched soon (ie by tonight) so if you’re in for a streamer, now would be a good time to buy.  There may even be an opportunity to sell the boxes on eBay and keep the points.  You can see all 3 Now TV products included in this offer is here.

    Slightly OT again but might be useful to some…I did a transfer of clubcard points to a Virgin Flying Club account with different email address and different postal address (just the same name) and it went through successfully. 20% bonus received too 🙂

  2. Turns out many of my colleagues already pay for Now TV. I’ve cut some deals this morning for cheap points…

    • What was the price? Must be at least £2.50 per box to meet your avios buying price and if they have agreed any more than £5 a
      then they have conned themselves unless they plan to sell the box itself for £3. Try selling them some cheap train tickets to Edinburgh next 🙂

      • 🙂 £6 just for the vouchers. If I converted to avios works out at 0.5ppa. Might still then be able to flog the boxes on ebay / throw in the bin (cue the ecowarriors’ comments…).

        • Barry cutters says:

          -how could you?!?- imagine the environmental impact!!!!

          Can’t believe you would do that just for a few cheap points!!!

        • Look for a small electronics item recycling bin!

        • Barry cutters says:

          I on the other hand will be giving mine away to the homeless

        • Tesco are creating the market for this. £9.99 for the movies a month on a recurring subscription vs £12.50 (and all the points). I’m just a taker in the market.

        • And anyway, we don’t own a car, recycle lots at home, insulate our property, put on jumpers instead of heating house etc. I do my bit. Does that still make me a bad person?

        • Barry cutters says:

          My comment was a joke – hence the homeless comment , I would assume no house= no tv 🙂

          It’s the world we live in , and I really don’t think the 1000 or so Now tv boxes that may end up in a landfill will make any difference.

        • Forgive me lord for I have sinned…

        • As long as you don’t pass wind ever he might forgive you on balance.

        • the real harry1 says:

          @ Genghis – you can shift the rest (ie boxes & bits) for £3 here – they pay postage

        • @TRH1. Cheers. Lovely. I now make that 0.27ppa.

        • Thanks for the CeX tip @TRH1. Significantly reduces the hassle and still opportunity to shift the passes.

        • On the CEX site which one is the current model? My box has 4201UK on it? They have a 4210SK that they buy for 2 pounds – has the but price already dropped lol?

  3. Barry cutters says:

    Works in store I just bought 20 .
    Was embarrassing so I told them I owned a hotel. 10000 points – 25k avios coming my way for £250. Will give them to my sisters kids as a gift to sell on eBay . #great uncle

  4. Barry cutters says:

    Which voucher/box with voucher is the best selling? Which one will I have the greater chance of selling on .

  5. Edinburgh residents: if anybody is interested there were about a dozen boxes left at 14:30. A mix of entertainment and kids but no movies, priced at £12.50 with the 500 points. They were in the extreme far left corner of the store on entering but there may be others displayed elsewhere as I also seen an empty display on the end of a row of shelves.

  6. BlueThroughCrimp says:

    Ordered from Direct last night, text message to say they were ready for collection this morning.

    Tesco seem to fulfil from selected store stock rather than warehouse now.

    Cinema (which I’ll keep) came with an additional £5.49 Sky Store voucher.

  7. the real harry1 says:

    O/T there’s a free £3 from t c b on any purchase over £40 (ex-VAT) made before midnight – you need to activate the offer first on homepage

    £3 no great shakes but perhaps you have something you need to buy eg on Ebay & it IS payable in Avios = 300+ points

    Tesco Direct no longer included

  8. I ordered 4 within minutes of the article going live yesterday but still no shipping notification.

    Anyone else in the same boat?

  9. When I click through to shop it says this item earns 12 cc points? Is that wrong?

  10. how many have you managed to order online in one go without it being cancelled?

    • I have just had delivery of the 50 I bought. I have another order of 50 which was dispatched this morning.

      • Great work! Was that home delivery or store collection?

      • Surely a fairly high chance of having the clubcard points removed? I’ve heard of people having them removed for “bulk” ordered of only a handful of items!

        • That could possibly happen, the relevant clause in the T&C’s is:

          ” Any participation in promotional offers above and beyond what could objectively be considered consumer behaviour or personal use may be considered as abuse of the scheme.”

          However with Christmas coming up, I have ordered lots of boxes to give away as presents to family and friends, along with a few to keep for myself.

        • The point being of course that in the run up to Christmas, consumer behaviour changes quite a bit!

        • This is of course a risk but I have had no issues with previous Now TV box offers or HP Ink in the past so will take my chances.

  11. ordered 3, 2 already sold unboxed to my colleagues for a tenner including pass of course
    Might do a second batch.
    Points haven’t posted yet

  12. the real harry1 says:

    2 month Ents OOS

    but the 3 month Kids back in stock and 1 month Cinema still there for 500 points

    don’t think about buying the Kids box except for personal use, a hard sell

  13. Does anyone know if cex require the hdmi lead?

  14. Thanks. I’ve sold to them before and took the batteries out, which they were fine with. But not sure about the hdmi

  15. Dave Stone says:

    Don’t forget to go through the Avios eShop to get an extra 4 miles/£ and pay with an Amex card for more miles

    • Or with a Tesco Bank debit card if you have one. 1 CC point per £ spent = 2.4 Avios (but stay below the 30k limit).
