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 Direct has launched another attractive pre-order deal for a ‘soon to be released’ entertainment product.

This time, it is for John Whaite’s new cookbook, “John Whaite Bakes”. John won the Great British Bake Off in 2012 …. apparently.

Anyway, I’m sure he’s a great bloke, whoever he is. Tesco loves him enough to be offering his new book for just £10, a 50% discount. You also receive 400 bonus Clubcard points!

John Whaite

400 Clubcard points are worth 960 Avios or 1,000 Virgin Flying Club miles, which makes the book a good deal even if you give it to Oxfam. Although your Mum would probably like it.

(EDIT: Ignore what I have written below. It seems you need to enter a specific code to get the bonus points to show up, which you will find in the comments.)

Unfortunately, there seems to be an issue with the Tesco website at the time of writing.

As per this link you can clearly see the book advertised with 400 bonus Clubcard points. However, on the order page, it is not mentioned. You would expect to see the 400 bonus points showing when you click ‘pre-order’, but it only shows the 10 base points.

Keep an eye on this page, though, because Tesco will presumably fix the glitch soon. Alternatively, order now and keep a screen shot showing the 400 Clubcard points offer so you can ring up to claim them if / when they do not post automatically.

    Does anyone know how long it would take the clubcard points to appear in your account for a deal like this? Would they be credited on ordering, or when the book is dispatched at its a pre-order?

    I’m looking for some extra clubcard points to qualify for the clubcard to avios auto-convert promotion before the May 3rd, and thought this might be the best way.

    Hi
    I ordered without the code – as it didnt work (but the offer was still showing on Tesco’s websites).

    Called Tesco and they added them manually. Great service (but off course it would have been a bit easier if it just worked in the first place)

    Have a nice weekend everyone!
