You can double up your vouchers if you spend them on:
- Garden & BBQs
- Home, Cook & Dine
- Skincare, Cosmetics & Fragrances
- Sports & Leisure
- Travel & Camping
- Entertainment & Books
- Mobile Phones & Accessories
Exclusions apply to all categories – you cannot get an iPad, for example, although Hudl tablets are included.
These deals are valid in store AND at Tesco Direct. The Tesco website explains how to convert your Clubcard tokens into special Boost vouchers if you want to use them instore. For Tesco Direct, your Clubcard tokens are automatically doubled.
Is this a better deal than converting to Avios?
It is not a slam dunk, but if Tesco Direct is selling something which you are definitely going to buy anyway then it is worth considering.
Let’s assume you want a £100 bike. That will cost you £50 of Tesco vouchers during Clubcard Boost. The same £50 of vouchers would get you 12,000 Avios or 12,500 Virgin Flying Club miles (15,000 Virgin miles during the current ‘20% bonus’ promotion’).
If you convert to Avios instead, and use hard cash to buy your bike, you are effectively ‘paying’ 0.83p per Avios.
For a lot of people, 0.83p is still a good price. If your Avios balance is already pretty high, though, you might want to think about whether buying something from Tesco Direct is a better deal or not. There is no right or wrong answer.
The deadline for taking advantage of these deals is 28th June.
