Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

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

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.

  • Hugo says:

    What’s the maximum number of bonus points you can credit to 1 clubcard account per year? Need to stock up on miles so tempted to order quite a few and sell on eBay.. Thanks Rob 🙂

  • Rami says:

    First time user of tesco Clubcard, how long to receive the points in clubcard account?

    • James says:

      Ordered 4 before it was posted on HFP and received cancellation email last night Tesco reduced to 2 due to ‘stock issues’ is 4 really bulk buying!

      • the real harry1 says:

        Kids, maybe – OOS – others still available to order & no cancellation email received by me

      • JamesB says:

        Most people here order a mavimum of two per type to be on the safe side. I ordered 3 of one type using four real individual accounts last night and so far no correction emails.

    • JamesB says:

      From instantly to a few days depending how you earn them. However, you don’t get your hands on them until Tesco issues your quarterly statement when they are converted to vouchers.

  • mark2 says:

    For anyone about to cancel amex cards remember that shopsmall starts 2/12

  • Andrew Stock says:

    Many new TV’s have now TV as an app which works better than an now TV box.

    After many years of being a Sky TV customer, I cancelled it. Now got BT TV with BT Sport HD and Eurosport HD for £16.50 a month and I’ve had sky sports on now TV for £20 a month for the last 4 months.

    Saved a fortune compared to the prices Sky TV charge.

    • Rob says:

      Can I use the pass via the app on my smart TV?

      • Simon says:

        You have to enter the pass/voucher via their website, then you can use it on up to four nowtv apps / boxes on which your a logged in to (only two concurrently I think).

  • Wally1976 says:

    Jumped in for 3 of these…

    Need to see if it’s better to sell them on with the included pass or sell them separately…

    • the real harry1 says:

      there are too many jokers/ cheats on Ebay – they buy the NowTV boxes, strip the pass from it then ask for a refund, claiming the code doesn’t work – you need to factor in the cost of that happening & the possible negative feedback

      whereas using the code yourself and selling the rest is problem-free

  • Wally1976 says:

    OT but Tesco related…starting to look at flogging off the Lego sets I bought in one of these promos…any tips out there to minimise hassle/maximise value? Thanks in advance.

    • Louise says:

      Nearly sold all my stock.
      I keep a spreadsheet of what I bought for/eBay fees & p&p and hope for an eBay fvf offer!

    • the real harry1 says:

      get the stamps for half price in Shop Small, cuts your costs

      • Genghis says:

        Yep. Came in handy selling my Tesco ink. Had to buy a few 10p and 5p stamps to true up to the postage cost though.

  • Wally1976 says:

    Slightly OT again but might be useful to some…I did a transfer of clubcard points to a Virgin Flying Club account with different email address and different postal address (just the same name) and it went through successfully. 20% bonus received too 🙂

    • TripRep says:

      Good data point thanks for sharing. Useful for topping up & rounding off a parent/children VS a/cs.
