Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 100 Tesco Clubcard points (240 Avios) with a £20 gift card purchase

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

If you’re in your local Tesco this week, make sure you pick up a copy of ‘Tesco Food Family Living’ magazine.

It looks like this.

And, on page 132, there is a coupon.

It gets you 100 bonus Clubcard points (240 Avios) with the purchase of a single gift card of £20 or above.

This should – I don’t see why not – stack with the ongoing offer of 150 bonus Clubcard points when you spend £50 or more on gift cards.

Whilst the voucher says that Visa branded cards are excluded, the rules of the ‘150 bonus points’ offer also say this – but they still count.  The coupons definitely work with 3V Virtual Visa cards.

This is a very decent offer, so I would pick up a few copies of the magazine if you can.

  • Keith Jenner says:

    I went into Tesco at lunchtime, but couldn’t find the magazine. However, when I was picking up some 3V’s anyway, they put up a poster saying there is 20% off some £25 cards. This may relate to the Arcadia ones mentioned above.

    The only one I remember being included was iTunes. The offer is valid until the 24th.

    • avidsaver says:

      I’m very confused. Is Tesco still stocking 3V cards? I thought I read on H4P some time ago that this had stopped and they were only stocking the ordinary Visa Debit cards (£25 or £50) plus a fee.

      • Alan says:

        Yep, definitely still being stocked although seems to vary by store.

      • Jonny says:

        They are being stocked but are fairly elusive, particularly if you like me, you can only go into the stores after work – they’re usually cleared out by then.

        Mind you, i did find some in my local for the first time in a while this week.

        • avidsaver says:

          Many thanks for the info Alan & Jonny. I shall keep on the lookout and hope I strike lucky!

          • Alan says:

            I’m not sure where you’re based but my impression is they’re much tougher to find in London/SE than if you happen to be further North in the UK – for once a bit of a benefit on the rewards front for us 😀

      • Rob says:

        No, they are still there. There were reports from Tesco staff members to HFP readers that they were being discontinued, but clearly not. Very likely that the sudden improvement in sales since June (when I first wrote about this) is behind it!

        • takke says:

          I came across some today in a store that has never stocked them before! Sadly I couldn’t find any of the magazines.

    • Darren says:

      Thanks, seen someone else post list is: on Itunes, pizza express, topshop, spa finder and accesorize, and arcadia given original post.

      • Michael says:

        20% off the giftcards you mention? Or how much is is. Please can you post a link. Thank you.

        • Darren says:

          I don’t have a direct link someone (on another forum) mentioned that it was advertised in store for these brands

  • Frenske says:

    Where do you normally find the magazine? I did not see a single one in the Tesco Extra in Brooklands.

    • Darren says:

      They’re usually on a palette behind the cashier to pick up on the way out in my stores

  • squills says:

    Oh right missed that, hope I get my £15 as I’m a bit late

  • Wizzyfax says:

    Epsom Promo wasn’t run by Raffles as it was too much faff.

    Basically tesco are doing 400 bonus points for each Epsom multipack you buy.

    They are a minimum of £20 up to about £70 .

    So you’re paying 5p+ per avios. It was only worth while with the electrical vouchers and helping hands.

    I sold them on eBay at a reduced price and broke even….just.

    You’re risking money buying them at face value.

    If you can find a £20 one, sell it for £17 ish on eBay, the fees and postage will be around £6, so you’ll come out with about £11, and get about 960 avios, so it’s not worth it without the vouchers, and that’s why Robert never ran it.

  • squills says:

    Yes I realised that. Got mine for free as well but not as many as you old son lol

  • Rob says:

    Not tomorrow, maybe Friday. Lot going on at the moment!

  • Akhil Gupta says:

    For the 3V cards – 150 clubcard points for £50 spend – If I want to get £100 of these cards can I get this bonus in one transaction – i.e. 300 points for £100 of 3V cards? Or should I do them separately?

  • squills says:

    You can do it that way for 300 points Akhil.

    You could do it another way for 400 more points and an extra £5 off next week, please read thread.
