Tesco has launched a new version of the Clubcard app, available now from your local app store.

The only reason I mention this is that the app allows you to leave your Clubcard at home.  If you click on ‘At the till’ a QR code version of your Tesco Clubcard appears on screen which can be scanned in.

It also allows you to check your Clubcard points balance without logging into the Clubcard website.  This is handy as the additional security procedures that Tesco has recently introduced have made logging in a cumbersome procedure.  There is no statement feature so you cannot see where your points have come from or even what the last movement was – you only see the headline figure.

Other features include details of the nearest store depending on where you are and the ability to receive personalised offers on your phone – although none of the ones I received are for extra points, only money off or 2-4-1’s.

The latest Clubcard app is not a breakthrough in technology by any means but the ability to use it as a Clubcard does mean there is some incentive to download it.

    I don’t take my phone shopping, but I always have my clubcard tag on my key ring.

    The best thing about this app is I can check my balance from outside the UK – the main website doesn’t let you login unless you have a British IP address (so I have to use a VPN/proxy from abroad).

    “available now from your local app store.” I cannot find this app anywhere. Can someone post a link?

      Thanks. Now on holiday outside UK so I guess that’s why nothing showed up, as with the [Android] link I get “no eligible devices for app install”.
