Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

3 x £15 iTunes gift cards in Tesco for £35, plus 150 Clubcard points

Until Sunday, Tesco is running a special promotion on iTunes gift cards. 

When you purchase 3 x £15 cards, you pay just £34.99.  That represents a decent £10 saving if you are a regular iTunes user.

More interesting, though, is the ability to combine this with Tesco’s offer of 150 bonus Clubcard points for buying £50 of gift cards.  This offer has been running for over a year now, and I have written about it numerous times, eg here.

Because the iTunes gift cards go through at £34.99 for three, you will need to add a £20 giftcard on top – for anyone (except Tesco itself) – to get you over the £50 level.  This is well worth it, however, given that you would earn 360 Avios or 375 Virgin Flying Club miles.

These will make decent Christmas presents for iPhone / iPad owning youngsters, if nothing else.

    Not quite as good, but this week the offer is 10% off £25 iTunes vouchers. It makes the maths easier in the you just need to add 2 of these and your choice of £10 gift voucher to trigger the 150 point bonus.

    A very big question!! Here’s hoping they aren’t – had a nice ‘helping hand’ discount on my last one too 😀

    • Simon says:

      I got a £15 off a £100 shop voucher in my last mailing which I managed to use today with 4 cards, threw in a bit of shopping as well. I’ve got lots of helping hands now which I’m hoping to use next week, just need to find a friendly check out assistant!

  • Rob says:

    Wow. This offer gets more and more generous. I am 100% convinced Tesco is doing this to inflate its (declining like for like) revenues to impress the stock market! Time to stock up on Pizza Express gift cards ….

    • Rich says:

      I think I would rather have the old offer to be honest.
      I get Pizza Express vouchers through Clubcard Rewards (perhaps controversial on this site) and I am still finding 3V cards in a few stores- if they remove the 150 bonus points then that will be the Gift Card option removed for me.

      (Apart from Boots and Homebase when they have promo’s on).

      Time will tell….
