Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Earn double Clubcard points at Tesco when you scan the app

Tesco Clubcard bonus points offers have been very thin on the ground recently.

If you look back at Head for Points from four years ago, we were running multiple articles per week on bonus point offers.  Many of them were a good deal even if you bought them purely for the Avios or Virgin Flying Club miles and sent the underlying product off for recycling!

Anyway, we have moved on!  Here is the new deal.

Until 1st March, you will receive double Tesco Clubcard points (2 per £1) on your in-store shopping when you scan the Tesco app at check-out.

Tesco app double points

You need to be clear about what we mean here.  You need to download the Tesco app to your smartphone and, when paying for your shopping, open the app and scan the page showing your Clubcard.

It will NOT work if you swipe a plastic Clubcard, swipe a key fob, use the Tesco Pay+ app or (potentially) even scan the Clubcard saved in Apple Wallet.  You must open the standard Tesco app and have it scanned.

You don’t need to register and the bonus points will be added automatically.

2 Clubcard points per £1 translates into 4.8 Avios or 5 Virgin Flying Club miles per £1 which is not a bad deal.

The usual exclusions apply, eg no points at all on tobacco products, baby milk etc.

It is not a targeted offer and is mentioned, albeit briefly, on this page of the Tesco website.

PS.  If you missed it, you should take a look at our recent article on the top 10 reasons to get the Tesco Clubcard Mastercard credit card.

    I just scanned my Tesco Clubcard app (as in the photo above and not from Apple Wallet), and the receipt shows that I got only 3 points, rather than 6 points, for my £3.90 transaction. Do the double points appear later rather than on the paper receipt?

      Same here – only been getting normal points rather than double all week. Does anyone know if these show up later? They dont show up on the app once that updates.
