Tesco Grocery code still running

Reader Robert emailed to remind me that there is a functioning Tesco Grocery code out there with a surprisingly long expiry date.

Code XXNNRR gives an impressive 1,250 bonus Clubcard points when used on a £60 order placed on the Tesco grocery site here.  That would be worth 3,000 Avios points!

The code will only work if you have not placed a Tesco Grocery order in roughly the last 12 months.  New Clubcard accounts will definitely work OK  – sign up here (click ‘Join Clubcard’ at the top of the page) or pick up a card in a Tesco store.

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (, which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

Clubcard vouchers

48 hour flash sale is running a 48-hour flash sale today and tomorrow promising discounts of up to 40%.  Full details are here.

I would take this claim with a pinch of salt and compare prices carefully, but it is worth a quick look if you do need to book somewhere this week.

Delta transatlantic reward sale

Delta Air Lines of the US is running a transatlantic reward sale until August 21st. If you have some Delta miles to use, this is a decent opportunity.

Only some routes are available – they are shown on the Delta site here. You are looking at 87,000 miles return in Business Class between Europe and the US and 42,000 miles in Economy. The link has details of the specific travel and blackout dates for each route.  Thanks to Marlene.


£10 off at Fenwick and Bentalls

Finally, a new cashback deal has appeared on the American Express website.  You will receive a £10 statement credit when you spend £50 in Fenwick or Bentalls by September 30th.

Log in to your American Express account and see if it is shows under ‘Offers’ on your card statement pages.  I had it on my BA, Platinum and SPG cards.  If it not there, all is not lost – it may appear on the ‘cardmember offers’ website in a few days which would allow anyone to register.

  1. It is not IC policy to respect Ambassador benefits on third party bookings. IHG even changed their rules this year to stop you getting points on food and drink spend when booking via a third party, although not all hotels are following it.

  2. Thank you for the Tesco code, worked fine for me am just enrolling my partner for another shop!
    Does anyone know if we can add 2 voucher codes to the same order?
    Have just seen a £16 off a £60 spend (code XXPTHN) on
    Thinking if we spent over £77, then the £16 off voucher would kick in, still have £61 or more to pay which keeps us eligible for the Avios promotion!
    Probably just wishful thinking…

      No, you can’t use 2 x XX codes

      • Apologies for OT post: Have to take a family member to Heathrow tomorrow and thought I’d use the opportunity to make one of the two £50 spends required for the Heathrow Rewards promotion of a few weeks back. Any info welcome please on what shops are available to me landside -in particular any shops selling gift cards?

  3. I once bought £900 of gift cards in Bentalls with 18 Amex cards when there was a spend £50 get £25 back offer. Got mum a half price washing machine and dishwasher, the lady who put them through said ‘that’s the longest receipt I’ve ever seen’ – each gift card had to be processed separately on the receipt. Was quite a good exercise in how far you can push things before anyone asks questions and the answer is much further than you would imagine.

    The local curry house on the other hand called the police when I asked to pay across 5 cards (all in my name) in £10 denominations. They still think I’m a fraudster now when I go in, cash only they explain to me when I go there.

    The tesco code banked and was on the delivery note but points still have not hit my account 3 days later – is this normal?
