It is a couple of months since there has been a decent promotional code for Tesco grocery shopping. There used to be a steady flow of them which made it an easy way of picking up Avios points.
This impressive offer has now appeared:
1,500 bonus Clubcard points on a £60 grocery spend
Code is XXPJPY
Code expires 30th June
I need to say straight up that this code is not working on all accounts.
From reports elsewhere there does not seem to be a pattern. It seems that it works either if you have never had a grocery order before on your account or if you have not ordered groceries for a while. It worked fine for me but I have not done a Tesco grocery order for at least a year.
The quickest way to see if it works is to go to the Tesco grocery site and do a dummy order for £60 (search for ‘veuve’ and put two bottles in your basket!). Click checkout, select a random delivery slot, go to the payment page (do not put in a credit card number) and enter the code. The box is halfway down the payment page.
If it has worked, you will see this on your screen:
The voucher is then stored on your account. You do NOT need to complete the dummy order – the code will still be there if you do another grocery order later on.
If the code does not work on your account, you may want to consider opening a new Tesco Clubcard account just for this transaction. If you are in a BA household account then it might be less risky to use the name of someone else in your household account and send the Avios to them.
If you don’t want to order your groceries from Tesco, consider spending £60 on some wine, nappies, dishwasher tablets or other expensive branded items which you buy anyway. It is a very easy 3,600 Avios or 3,750 Virgin Flying Club miles if you only buy items you need anyway.
