In terms of the sheer quantity of Avios points that you can earn from one item, this is the most generous Tesco promotion for some time.
Until September 2nd, you will receive 4,500 Clubcard points when you buy a Samsung HW-J550 soundbar for your TV system.
The soundbar costs £299. Take a look at Tesco Direct here.
If you order TODAY (Monday 31st) you will save £20 using code TDX-LKJ3 at check-out. This code can also be used to save £20 off any other £100 purchase of “Vision, Computing, Sat Nav, Cameras and MP3 products” made today.
Including the base points, and excluding the £20 discount, the purchase would earn you 4,799 Clubcard points. That would convert into 11,517 Avios points or 11,998 Virgin Flying Club miles.
If you don’t want to use the points for airline miles, this page on our sister site Shopper Points shows the best value Tesco Clubcard Boost redemptions.
It is occasionally possible to resell Tesco purchases on eBay at a marginal loss which means that you are effectively purchasing the Avios cheaply. I do not think this is possible here – this is a big item with heavy delivery costs and you will be taking the risk of it getting damaged in transit.
If you are looking for a soundbar for personal use, however, this is worth a look. A quick Google search shows that other online retailers are selling it for less – although the £20 code removed a lot of the gap – so you will be paying for those Avios in some way.
