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.

    Is it possible to use the bonus points code and a £x off first order code too in the same transaction?

    • Jenni says:

      No you can only use one code starting XX in one transaction. They don’t stack.

      • Tom says:

        don’t worry answer is nooooo – just checked you can either have the 1500 points or the £12 off…

  • Rob says:

    Tesco has recently changed their rules on this. You will not receive this payment if your household – not just you – is an existing grocery customer. It may track but will be declined later.

  • Adam says:

    Has anyone used this code on a used account and had the groceries delivered and the bonus points showing on the delivery receipt?
    I only ask as i remember not so long ago on MSE a similar bonus points code for groceries for fnew accounts and i am sure people posted that the code banked in their accounts, were applied successfully when they placed the order but did not show on their receipt. When they called up CS to ask where the bonus points were they were told the account used for the code was not new so didnt qualify.

  • Nick says:

    How convenient it’d be if it was possible to add 3v cards to the order. Especially last year.

  • plastikman says:

    luckily haven’t used tesco in ages. 2 bottles of hendricks winging their way over this weekend. Struck me that tesco grocery portal is light years behind waitrose / ocado.

  • squills says:

    The other thing I noticed was: if you had genuine reason to set up a new a/c of course, eg dog ate the clubcard but you need to place an order, you can set up a new a/c with dummy £60 basket, then add a load of codes for new customer £15 off. I think I managed 6 x £15 off codes in the ‘bank’. Then if you have reason to buy a few loo rolls etc, you could feasibly use all 6 x £15 off codes in separate shops before Mr T gets round to working out you’ve had a £15 off code once so you can’t have any more – and they become deleted.

    • squills says:

      Nice result, I was forgetting Virgin shopping portal, which shouldn’t get declined when used with codes on top

  • Nick says:

    Can anybody shed any light on the comment above about the 100CC coupon for spice jars? I remember a lot of excitement about coupons for an additonal 100cc points on gift cards some time ago, but I could never find the magazine that people were getting these things from. I’ve googled it, but all I’m finding is an app for my phone.

    • Rob says:

      I assume they mean the general Tesco free magazine, which is usually piled up in a ginormous 6ft x 6ft cardboard box outside Cheapside Metro when it comes in. That is where the gift card coupon was last year.

      • Nick says:

        Thanks. I went in to two tescos at lunchtime (sad), and neither of them knew of a Tesco magazine. Each tried to give me the Homes brochure. The hunt goes on…

    • ComeFlyWithMe123 says:

      It was in the summer magazine (yellowy colour IIRC). Tesco giving out 100CC points on Santa Maria products. The majority of which retailed at >£1.99 but there was one that was £0.74.

      Tesco happily giving me 26p extra in vouchers and a spice jar to boot for diddly squatt 🙂
