There are two interesting Tesco deals running at the moment:

Pay £5 for a £10 Tesco gift card via Mighty Deals

EDIT: Now sold out

Via the Mighty Deals website, you can currently buy a £10 Tesco gift card for just £5.  The site runs these sort of deals on a regular basis and they are generally reliable.

If you want to take part, here is how to do it:

Step One – Create a Mighty Deals account by going here

This is my referral link.  If you sign up via this link then I get a credit which can be spent on the Mighty Deals site.  I don’t get any real money!  Thank you.

Step Two – If you have a TopCashback account, visit TopCashback at this page and click through to Mighty Deals

This will earn you 42p cashback!  If you are not already a TCB member, my refer-a-friend sign-up link is here.

Step Three – buy your £10 Tesco giftcard for £5 from Mighty Deals

All done.  It is a relatively easy way to save £5.42 if you regularly shop in Tesco.  Thanks to Frenske.

3,000 Avios with a £60 grocery shop

Tesco has launched another promotional code for Tesco grocery shopping, this time via a tie-up with moneysavingexpert.com.  Oddly, this is the same code that was being circulated by vouchercodes.co.uk back in March.

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

Code is XXFHML

Code expires on Sunday 26th April – you need to receive the delivery, or do ‘click and collect’, by this date.  This doesn’t give you much time so you would need to get an order placed ASAP.

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 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.

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.
