Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

It’s back – earn 3,000 Avios for a £60 Tesco grocery spend (1,200 Avios for existing customers)

Tesco has launched another promotional code for Tesco grocery shopping, this time via a tie-up with vouchercodes.co.uk. It isn’t quite as impressive as the last Tesco code but it is still worth having:

1,250 bonus Clubcard points on a £60 grocery spend

Code is XXFHML

Code expires on Monday 23rd March – 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.

Meanwhile, moneysavingexpert.com has a new code for EXISTING customers:

500 bonus Clubcard points on a £60 grocery spend

Code is XXMGGG

Code expires on Wednesday 25th March – you need to receive the delivery, or do ‘click and collect’, by this date

The quickest way to see if the ‘new customer’ code 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:

Tesco3

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.  I would only do this if the account is in a different name to your other account – hopefully someone who shares a BA household account with you so that you can transfer the points to Avios and access them yourself.  Another option would be to use a work address or another family member.

Alternatively, use the moneysavingexpert.com code for 500 points.  It is not recommended to have multiple accounts in your own name at the same address.

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 3,000 Avios or 3,125 Virgin Flying Club miles if you only buy items you need anyway.
