When will Tesco ever learn?! Hopefully not for a while.

On Tesco Direct, there is a very average offer for 500 bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order the video game ‘Call of Duty : Ghosts’ for £35-£40 depending on format. It’s an OK deal if you are buying it anyway, but nothing to get excited about.

However, in store, something more interesting is back.

Call of Duty

Tesco is offering 500 bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order ‘Call of Duty : Ghosts’ for £5! This is 1,200 Avios points or 1,250 Flying Club miles for just a fiver.

How it is meant to work is that you get a display box scanned at the check-out, pay £5, and receive a special receipt. Visit the store on the day the game is released and you are guaranteed to get a copy and you will get your £5 back as a discount. The 500 bonus Clubcard points are credited with the pre-order payment.

There is no obligation to ever buy the game when it is eventually released. This means that you can treat this as a chance to buy some Avios airmiles for 0.4p each!

You need to be very careful not to overdo this promotion. Tesco has removed bonus points in the past. Buying one copy is obviously fine, two is probably OK, especially if you buy one of the Xbox versions and one of the PlayStation versions. I would get very nervous beyond two copies.

The boxes tend to be on a separate stand to the usual video games. You take an empty box to the checkout, it is scanned, but you do not keep the box – it goes back on the shelf. You will only tend to find these in larger Tesco stores.

There is no stated closing date for this offer, although one poster at paidtoshop.co.uk was told that it finishes TODAY. There is no confirmation of this, but do not make a special effort after today until there is proof it is carrying on.

    Was at Gallows last night. Had display but no boxes and thus nothing to scan.

    Just popped into the big Tesco in Banbury (near what used to be General Foods and smells of coffee)

    Lots of these in the normal games section.

    Also got the last 6 3V cards!

    Found this at The Meadows in Camberley today. It is on the end cap with all the other games for pre-order.

    I managed to pre-order the call of duty ghosts game today at Roneo Corner, still available if anyone from east London.
