Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Earn 1,500 Clubcard points (3,600 Avios) on £60 Tesco grocery spend

Tesco has launched a new promotional code for Tesco grocery shopping via a tie-up with moneysavingexpert.com.  It is pretty impressive:

1,500 bonus Clubcard points on a £60 grocery spend

Code is XXGKLX

Code expires on Monday 20th October – you need to receive the delivery, or do ‘click and collect’, by this date

This code is aimed at customers whose accounts have not had a Tesco Grocery order before.

It will also work OK if you have not done a Tesco Grocery order for some time, potentially a year or so.  I got it to work successfully on my account as the screenshot below shows.

The quickest way to see if it works on an existing account 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:

Tesco bonus points code

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 is better 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.

    i’ve had a go as well – got to be worth a £15 gamble!

  • JimSG says:

    In a funny sequence of events, I made a qualifying order but at delivery I found out that one item was subbed for a cheaper one making the total price drop below 60 quid. The statement they gave me shows 1557 points earned, does anyone know whether these points are safe or they may reclaim them later?

  • OrphanageExplosion says:

    Good news guys, I thought I’d missed out on this offer, but tried it anyway and the expiry had changed to 17/11/14 🙂

  • Adam says:

    Had to open anew account to bag the points. When you open a new account online, do they automatically send you a new cc in the post as when i log into the new account i cannot view the whole cc number so cannot get past security to view points?

    • idrive says:

      to see if you got some points log in on to groceries and view account. I realized that one you do that, they will send the card. otherwise it won’t till you log. and first vouchers will probably come by post.

      • Adam says:

        I logged back into the new account today after placing a click and collect for monday and it states to enter your clubcard number and a few other details. They state you only need to do this once and your account is fully open and they wont ask you for the clubcard number again. In my account details i can see a cc number but they only show you the last four digits so i cannot use this to complete the full registration?
