Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Reminder: 3,600 Avios for £60 Tesco grocery spend still working

I have run this as a ‘4th post’ today because there is nothing new in it.  I do however want to remind anyone who missed this offer when I first posted about it two weeks ago that it is still working.

Using code XXPJPY, you will receive 1,500 bonus Tesco Clubcard points when you do a £60 grocery spend.

The code is meant to work until 30th June.  In the past, Tesco codes have stopped working early when they reach some pre-determined ‘maximum number of uses’.  This code has not yet reached that level.

That said, this code does not work for everyone.

It will definitely work if you open a new Tesco Clubcard account.  It is also working for people who have not done a Tesco grocery order for ‘a while’ – although it is not clear how long ‘a while’ is.  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:

rsz_1rsz_1tesco

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 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.

Remember that Tesco has recently dropped the price of off-peak delivery slots to just £1 so the delivery charge may be nominal if you pick the right time.

    I can’t see Tesco honouring these to be honest.

    The items just won’t be in stock.

  • James says:

    Sorry, no products found for this offer.

    that’s all I get when trying to find the grocery clubcard bonus, is this a southern thing?

  • Justin says:

    doesnt work on any of my accounts. bah!!!

  • Caroline says:

    Hi, do Tesco list the extra points offers anywhere? When clicking special offers on the grocery page I can’t see a bcubcard filter.

    Also, the cheapest extra 25 points veg in my area is 62p. Do you think it’s worth a buying a few at this price? Is it a decent price/points ratio when ultimately converting to Avios?

    Thanks

    • Rob says:

      No, not really. That is essentially 1p per Avios which is probably not worth it.

  • Akkers says:

    I purchased 20 books on 4 May but they haven’t tracked in my Tesco Clubcard account yet. Have they tracked for anyone else yet?

    Thanks.

    • Roger Carpenter says:

      Not yet. When I rang they said to wait for the end of the promotion on 30/6.

  • Craziest Tesco deal ever?! 62 Avios for every 1p spent! says:

    […] You can combine these items with the ’1500 Clubcard points for a £60 grocery order’ that I reminded everyone about yeste…. […]

  • markb says:

    Alas the vegetable offer is not available for me, will try the points for a £60 spend, anyone know if I can also use a helping hand coupon and/or £7 off a £70 spend coupon I got through the post

  • huntsman says:

    Made £25 order but at final confirmation after payment it stated the order only qualified for 26 clubcard points (despite all the way through claiming 5201).

    Will the 26 be credited straight away and the 5201 only on delivery?
