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:
- 1 month Sky Cinema Pass (click for the Tesco Direct product page)
- 2 months Sky Entertainment Pass (click for Tesco Direct product page)
- 3 months Sky Kids Pass (click for the Tesco Direct product page)
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 Hotels.com 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.
