Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

1200 Avios, 1250 Virgin miles or £15 Uber credit with a £12.50 NOW TV box

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We try to keep Tesco Direct deals on our sister site Shopper Points these days, but this offer is so good that we thought it was worth a bigger audience over here.

Tesco Direct has dropped the price of Now TV boxes to £12.50 and is still offering 500 extra Clubcard points per box.  These are worth 1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles, or £15 of Uber credit.

If you’re familiar with Google Chromecast or Amazon Fire Stick, Now TV works in the same way. It connects wirelessly to your broadband signal and allows you to stream content to your TV.

As well as accessing BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 there are also lots of other channels available, many of which would otherwise require you to pay for a full satellite or cable subscription.

Until 27th November – but they are unlikely to last longer than tonight at this lower price – you will get 500 extra Clubcard points when buying a Now TV box. There are three different passes to choose from:

When we first wrote about this offer the price for a NOW TV box was £20.  This was already quite a good offer considering the possible 1,200 Avios / 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles / £15 Uber credit etc value from 500 extra Clubcard points.

Now the price has dropped to £12.50 – you’re technically getting a free NOW TV box and (via Uber or credit) an extra £2.50 on top.

I’m pretty sure the NOW TV boxes will be snatched soon (ie by tonight) so if you’re in for a streamer, now would be a good time to buy.  There may even be an opportunity to sell the boxes on eBay and keep the points.

    how many have you managed to order online in one go without it being cancelled?

    • Tom says:

      I have just had delivery of the 50 I bought. I have another order of 50 which was dispatched this morning.

      • see22 says:

        Great work! Was that home delivery or store collection?

      • Gavin says:

        Surely a fairly high chance of having the clubcard points removed? I’ve heard of people having them removed for “bulk” ordered of only a handful of items!

        • Dave G says:

          That could possibly happen, the relevant clause in the T&C’s is:

          ” Any participation in promotional offers above and beyond what could objectively be considered consumer behaviour or personal use may be considered as abuse of the scheme.”

          However with Christmas coming up, I have ordered lots of boxes to give away as presents to family and friends, along with a few to keep for myself.

        • Dave G says:

          The point being of course that in the run up to Christmas, consumer behaviour changes quite a bit!

        • Tom says:

          This is of course a risk but I have had no issues with previous Now TV box offers or HP Ink in the past so will take my chances.

  • Pierre says:

    ordered 3, 2 already sold unboxed to my colleagues for a tenner including pass of course
    Might do a second batch.
    Points haven’t posted yet

  • the real harry1 says:

    2 month Ents OOS

    but the 3 month Kids back in stock and 1 month Cinema still there for 500 points

    don’t think about buying the Kids box except for personal use, a hard sell

  • Jimmy says:

    Does anyone know if cex require the hdmi lead?

    • the real harry1 says:

      you’d better ask them, their image suggests not but you don’t want to be refused

  • Jimmy says:

    Thanks. I’ve sold to them before and took the batteries out, which they were fine with. But not sure about the hdmi

  • Dave Stone says:

    Don’t forget to go through the Avios eShop to get an extra 4 miles/£ and pay with an Amex card for more miles

    • Dave G says:

      Or with a Tesco Bank debit card if you have one. 1 CC point per £ spent = 2.4 Avios (but stay below the 30k limit).

  • Richard G says:

    Just grabbed another few. Nothing quite as extreme as 50 though!

    I’d say I’ll eventually get around to selling them on ebay, but I know in reality they’ll just sit in a cupboard somewhere.
