Over the Summer there were a couple of generous Clubcard point promotions from the Tesco-owned blinkbox Movies and blinkbox Books. Now it is time for their music streaming service to join in.
blinkbox Music is a free streaming service which is similar to Spotify, Beats etc.
It is based around the idea of creating personalised radio stations based on your musical tastes. As well as listening to a pre-selected batch of music, you can also pick a group, song or genre and blinkbox will create a playlist it thinks you would like. By liking or disliking specific tracks you can help focus what is played in the future.
The free version has ads between each song. You do not earn Clubcard points for using the free service.
There is an upgraded version called blinkbox Music More. This costs £4.33 per month, ie £1 per week.
As well as removing all the advertising, you are able to listen to more of the latest albums.
Earn 500 Clubcard points for upgrading
If you upgrade to blinkbox Music More, you can earn 500 Clubcard points.
As outlined on this page, you will receive 250 points after your first £4.33 payment and a further 250 points after your second payment.
You are committed to spending £8.66 to receive the 500 points. This is not a bad deal for 1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles. The real value comes if you suspend any paid Spotify or Beats subscription for two months whilst you have paid access to blinkbox Music More as that would effectively make the points free.
