Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Tesco deals – even more giftcard points, 2880 Avios on wine, 360 Avios on DVDs

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Tesco has launched a number of generous Clubcard promotions.  All of these will give you bonus Clubcard points which can be converted into Avios points or Virgin Flying Club miles.

Deal 1:  100 Clubcard points on a £20 gift card purchase

Page 120 of the new Tesco magazine (the Christmas edition) contains a coupon for 100 bonus Clubcard points when you spend £20 on any gift card (Tesco giftcards excluded).

This will work on top of the standard promotion of 150 Clubcard points for spending £50 on gift cards.

250 Clubcard points (600 Avios) is an excellent deal for buying £50 of gift cards.  You may even get 350 points for a £50 purchase if you can persuade the cashier to scan two coupons.  If you are a regular visitor to Pizza Express, New Look, Debenhams or the many other retailers whose gift cards are sold by Tesco, it would make sense to stock up.

Deal 2:  1200 Clubcard points for £120 wine spend or 500 points for six bottle purchase

These codes offer a great return if you are stocking up for Christmas drinking with a visit to the Tesco online wine store.

Code XXPL7G gets you 1,200 points (2,880 Avios) for a £120 spend.  This code will NOT work for everyone.

Codes are XX4MJH and XXLLG4 offer 500 bonus points when used for a six bottle purchase.  This code came with the Tesco Wine magazine so may be easier to redeem.

The £120 code should work on the price before any discounts – such as the current ‘25% off 12 bottles’ deal – are taken off so your actual spend needed may be lower.

Deal 3:  150 bonus points when you pre-order a DVD

Over at Tesco Direct, the following DVDs are available to pre-order.  You will receive 150 Clubcard points (360 Avios, 375 Virgin miles) with each one.  This offer should double up with any bonus points DVD coupon you may have received in the post recently.

Prices start at £10.

Seven titles are shown via this link (expire 23 November)

Three more titles are here including Inbetweeners 2 (expires 30 November)

Two more are here including the latest Expendables (expires 7 December)

And finally Into The Storm is here (expires 14 December)

There are also five Blu-Ray disks offering 200 bonus points (480 Avios) which you can find here.

  • Andy W says:

    I purchased a £50 visa gift card in Tesco this morning using the magazine voucher and was expecting 250 points (150 for spending £50 on gift cards + 100 from the voucher), however, it only went through with 150, I queried this at the customer service desk and the lady there said the extra 100 wouldn’t show on the receipt, but would show on my next statement (the voucher states the points will be shown on the next cc statement), but I don’t believe her and have emailed Tesco. Are the £50 visa gift cards excluded from the voucher offer?

    • Paul says:

      Andy – both showed on my receipt; under the “includes” section there are two entries – “Gift Card 150 Points per £50” and “Clubcard points coupon”. Be interested to hear the outcome to your follow-up since I was tempted to buy a £50 Visa…

      • squills says:

        Surprised you got the 150.

        I thought you only get 150 Tesco points when you buy 2 x £25 giftcards? That’s what we all do with the 3Vs.

        But you SHOULD have got the 100 points if the voucher was applied correctly, it’s instant.

        Any excuse about end of month is pretty much always a Tesco lie to get rid of the problem, ie pls go away 😉

      • YL says:

        I bought the £50 visa one yesterday with 1×100 coupon. I can confirm the voucher works fine for it.
        Just like Paul mentioned both showed on my receipt; under the “includes” section
        “Gift Card 150 Points per £50″ and “Clubcard points coupon”

        Depends how you value the points, I think someone did a math last year that it may work out better to purchase 2x £25 visa gift card with 2 x100 coupons despite the fees.

  • Mark2 says:

    Finally found a load of cake magazines but no 3V; boo hoo!
