Worst …. Tesco …. Clubcard …. promotion …. ever ….
Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.
We have seen some really good offers from Tesco recently offering bonus Clubcard points. These allow you to pick up Avios points and Virgin Flying Club miles very cheaply. The Blinkbox Books and Game of Thrones deals are still running.
And there was this offer ….
Tesco has got a great new deal to tempt you to take out its car insurance.
Move your car insurance – probably a £500+ bill for most people – over to Tesco before August 12th and you will receive …. wait for it …. 50 Clubcard points.
Yes, 50 whole points. Enough for 50p off your next Tesco shop or 120 Avios points.
There is admittedly a competition as well, but for 99% of people all they will be getting is 50 points. Don’t all rush at once.
There is a new Tesco Direct discount code available though.
Tesco has released a new Tesco Direct promotional code for new customers to Tesco Direct. Since a lot of Head for Points readers opened additional Clubcard accounts to take advantage of the ‘3600 Avios for a £60 grocery shop’ offer (now closed) then you should be able to use this code on those accounts.
It may also work on accounts which have not done a Tesco Direct order for a few months.
The code is TDX-KYNK, which deducts £10 from a £50 Tesco Direct order. The code runs until August 4th.
