Tesco Direct has launched a potentially attractive deal on ‘large kitchen appliances’!

When you spend £350 or more on a washing machine, washer dryer, fridge, freezer or cooker, you will receive 3,500 bonus Clubcard points

Tesco promo

This is worth 8,400 Avios points or 8,750 Virgin Flying Club miles.

The offer runs to 22nd January.  If you are in the market for this sort of thing, then this is not a bad deal – 8,400 Avios (if you value them at 1p each) plus the base Clubcard points would effectively be a 25% discount on a £350 product.

    Darn just bought a dish washer, washer and fridge freezer 2 months ago. It could been a free trip to Europe.
    That said Tesco appliances never apperared similar priced as the usual online electronic shops.

    • Hzf says:

      You *totally* don’t have to worry about it – I bought a new combo cooker from homebase and tescos’ are either ….bad…..or…….ridiculously priced. I looked at their website again- I still won’t buy those stuff even with those points

      • Hzf says:

        i meant to say i bought a cooker 2 days ago from homebase and i had compared different websites at the time

  • squills says:

    20,000 on fitted kitchens + free dishwasher.

  • Peter says:

    I got a new fridge freezer in December from Boots, unfortunately you don’t have much choice in delaying some of these purchases. DRL is the company behind Boots appliances, and a few other ‘fronts’ I believe.

    • Peter says:

      Meant to add, it was 4 boots points per pound, and only afterwards did I find out the wife had a double points coupon in her purse.

      • chris says:

        well you cant put off purchases, like you said,

        i also dont think you would of missed out on the double points coupon either since boots like tescos i am quite sure do not give double point on bonus points (since the 4 points a pound is a new year bonus, i highly doubt you would of got them just the double base cost ones being £200 or so)

  • Kevin Roberts says:

    Always buy kitchen appliances after comparing features and prices with a number of items. Try to purchase smart appliances from a reputed store. In Houston, you will find a number of reliable stores where you can get branded kitchen appliances and accessories at reasonable rates.

  • Mark says:

    Now showing just 2500 points rather than the originally advertised 3500.

  • Sarah G says:

    How long do people find it takes for Clubcard points to post in BA account once you have submitted them? I’ve fallen foul of the reward flight saver rule that you have to have a point in your account before you are eligible when booking for my boyfriend! Hoping it’s quick as I want to book asap.

    • Rob says:

      Will hopefully be there on Wednesday morning if you do it now.

      • Sarah G says:

        Super, thanks for the reply Raffles. I was having a complete panic. Fingers cross there will still be availablility 🙂

        • Sarah G says:

          Still no sign of the points and it’s Thursday morning. Getting worried now.
