First off, here is the ‘no news’ you were probably expecting. It has been confirmed to me that there will be no ‘Tesco Clubcard to Avios points’ conversion bonus this quarter.
Instead there is the competition which a couple of readers have already seen promoted in-store by an Avios marketing team. Convert £5 of more of Clubcard vouchers and you can win one of 200 prizes of 9,000 Avios. Ho hum.
Moving on …
This is slightly off topic, but I thought it was worth mentioning as the Clubcard vouchers from the last quarter should be showing in your online account now and are available for redemption.
As I posted two weeks ago, Tesco is – until August 4th – offering 150 Clubcard points when you buy a long list of CD’s. These are not pre-order CD’s, these are CD’s which are already for sale.
All of these CD’s are included in the current Clubcard Boost promotion. As I wrote here, you can buy ANYTHING from Tesco Direct using Clubcard vouchers and receive a 100% bonus on their value.
This offer combines with the CD promotion.
Let’s take Calvin Harris, pictured above. His CD costs £4.50 with 150 bonus Clubcard points thrown in.
This is how the transaction works, although you need to spend a minimum of £10 to use Clubcard Boost:
Cost of Calvin Harris CD (collected in-store): £4.50
Pay using 225 Clubcard points: – 225 points
Gain 154 Clubcard points for the purchase: + 154 points
Net cost of CD: 71 Clubcard points
That isn’t a bad deal by any stretch of the imagination. Even if Calvin Harris is not your thing, there are plenty more CD’s in the offer at around the £5 mark.
Remember that you need to order by August 4th to get the 150 bonus Clubcard points.
