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.

    Turns out many of my colleagues already pay for Now TV. I’ve cut some deals this morning for cheap points…

    • JamesB says:

      What was the price? Must be at least £2.50 per box to meet your avios buying price and if they have agreed any more than £5 a
      then they have conned themselves unless they plan to sell the box itself for £3. Try selling them some cheap train tickets to Edinburgh next 🙂

      • Genghis says:

        🙂 £6 just for the vouchers. If I converted to avios works out at 0.5ppa. Might still then be able to flog the boxes on ebay / throw in the bin (cue the ecowarriors’ comments…).

        • Barry cutters says:

          -how could you?!?- imagine the environmental impact!!!!

          Can’t believe you would do that just for a few cheap points!!!

        • john says:

          Look for a small electronics item recycling bin!

        • Barry cutters says:

          I on the other hand will be giving mine away to the homeless

        • Genghis says:

          Tesco are creating the market for this. £9.99 for the movies a month on a recurring subscription vs £12.50 (and all the points). I’m just a taker in the market.

        • Genghis says:

          And anyway, we don’t own a car, recycle lots at home, insulate our property, put on jumpers instead of heating house etc. I do my bit. Does that still make me a bad person?

        • Barry cutters says:

          My comment was a joke – hence the homeless comment , I would assume no house= no tv 🙂

          It’s the world we live in , and I really don’t think the 1000 or so Now tv boxes that may end up in a landfill will make any difference.

        • Genghis says:

          Forgive me lord for I have sinned…

        • will says:

          As long as you don’t pass wind ever he might forgive you on balance.

        • the real harry1 says:

          @ Genghis – you can shift the rest (ie boxes & bits) for £3 here – they pay postage

        • Genghis says:

          @TRH1. Cheers. Lovely. I now make that 0.27ppa.

        • Steve-B says:

          Thanks for the CeX tip @TRH1. Significantly reduces the hassle and still opportunity to shift the passes.

        • GB says:

          On the CEX site which one is the current model? My box has 4201UK on it? They have a 4210SK that they buy for 2 pounds – has the but price already dropped lol?

  • Barry cutters says:

    Works in store I just bought 20 .
    Was embarrassing so I told them I owned a hotel. 10000 points – 25k avios coming my way for £250. Will give them to my sisters kids as a gift to sell on eBay . #great uncle

  • Barry cutters says:

    Which voucher/box with voucher is the best selling? Which one will I have the greater chance of selling on .

  • JamesB says:

    Edinburgh residents: if anybody is interested there were about a dozen boxes left at 14:30. A mix of entertainment and kids but no movies, priced at £12.50 with the 500 points. They were in the extreme far left corner of the store on entering but there may be others displayed elsewhere as I also seen an empty display on the end of a row of shelves.

  • BlueThroughCrimp says:

    Ordered from Direct last night, text message to say they were ready for collection this morning.

    Tesco seem to fulfil from selected store stock rather than warehouse now.

    Cinema (which I’ll keep) came with an additional £5.49 Sky Store voucher.

  • JamesB says:

    Aha, looking at your message I just realised what happened to my reply to Genghis earlier!

  • Ahop says:

    I ordered 4 within minutes of the article going live yesterday but still no shipping notification.

    Anyone else in the same boat?

    • Genghis says:

      Mine are expected for collection tomorrow so should receive shipping notice overnight.

    • Johnny_c-l says:

      Didn’t get a shipping email with mine, just an email when ready to collect in store.

      • Ahop says:

        Makes sense when you put it like that.

        • the real harry1 says:

          not really

          more normal to get 1 received your order email, then 2 dispatch update email, then 3 ready for collection email

          check spam & filters

        • Johnny_c-l says:

          Might not get the despatch email when it’s being picked from in store .

  • Ed says:

    When I click through to shop it says this item earns 12 cc points? Is that wrong?
