The instore offers are pretty useless, as this page at tesco.com shows.
You can only double up your vouchers if you spend them on:
Clothing and school uniform
Back to school accessories
Hudl tablets and accessories
The online version is substantially more interesting.
EVERYTHING at Tesco Direct is included. (Everything as long as it is being sold by Tesco and not by one of their partners, such as Maplin, who also sell via Tesco Direct.)
This opens up a LOT of options. Want an Xbox? A new mobile phone? DVD box sets? A pram? A cot? Garden furniture? A new bike? The whole lot is included.
Is this a better deal than converting to Avios?
It is not a slam dunk, but if Tesco Direct is selling something which you are definitely going to buy anyway then it is worth considering.
Let’s assume you want a £100 bike. That will cost you £50 of Tesco vouchers during Clubcard Boost. The same £50 of vouchers would get you 12,000 Avios or 12,500 Virgin Flying Club miles.
If you convert to Avios instead, and use hard cash to buy your Xbox or whatever, you are effectively ‘paying’ 0.83p per Avios.
For a lot of people, 0.83p is still a good price. If your Avios balance is already pretty high, though, you might want to think about whether buying something from Tesco Direct is a better deal or not. There is no right or wrong answer.
