Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 150-200 Clubcard points (360-480 Avios) for DVD and Blu-Ray pre-orders at Tesco

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

After a small break, Tesco Direct has brought back its pre-order offer on DVD’s and Blu-Ray discs.  This allows you to earn a large pile of bonus Clubcard points when you order a product which is coming soon but not yet available.

Note that Tesco charges you immediately for pre-orders.  However, the upside is that you will also receive your bonus Clubcard points immediately.

You will receive 150 Clubcard points when you buy ANY pre-order DVD and 200 Clubcard points when you buy ANY pre-order Blu-Ray (selection here).

This is a slightly better deal than last time, because there is no £10 minimum order.  The cheapest DVD is Scooby-Doo Stage Fright for £5, which is a pretty good deal for 360 Avios points if you can find a use for the DVD.  The cheapest Blu-Ray is £11.90 so these deals are not as good.

The offers run until 15th September.

      Yes, there is a bug here. A new batch of titles have been added, running to 23rd September. For titles like Scooby Doo on the old and new lists, you get the bonus twice! That is 720 Avios for £5 with Scooby Doo.
