Play the clubcard for max points

Tesco's Clubcard is one of the most generous loyalty schemes around, if used the right way.

It's possible to play the points and rewards scheme like a symphony, so here's the score...

Clubcard basics

Regular shoppers at retail megalith Tesco earn Clubcard points. Every three months it sends the points as vouchers, yet it's possible to gain massive extra value.

How do you earn Clubcard points?
Flash your Clubcard at Tesco and you bag one point per pound spent. You can also earn via partners such as E.on, Blinkbox and Living Social - see a full list.

For devoted points chasers, the Tesco Clubcard Credit Card* gives one Clubcard point for every £4 you spend on it (18.9% representative APR). Though you could get a better return with a cashback card - for full help and options, see Cashback Credit Cards.

How much are Tesco vouchers worth?
While 500 points equals a fiver to spend in-store, you can trade it for up to four times that (ie, £20) on Boost Partner items. These include restaurant vouchers, jewellery and train tickets (see Top 10).

Step 1: Get back lost Tesco vouchers

Many people lose or forget to use their Tesco vouchers, but there’s an easy way to claw back the last two years of unused vouchers (some report successes from even further back).

1

Log in online. Go to the Tesco Clubcard* website and enter your details. If you're new, you'll need to enter your email address and Clubcard number to access your account.

You'll need to be registered for a Tesco.com account. Tesco says doing this won't mean you miss out on money-off codes the first time you shop (see Tesco Discount Codes).

2

Check for unspent vouchers. In your Clubcard account, click on 'my vouchers' on the left-hand side and you should see a table listing the vouchers you still have to spend.Clubcard

3

Instantly print vouchers or use the codes online. If you want to spend vouchers online, you simply need to use the code listed, eg, beginning "A6TCD". To spend in-store, print vouchers yourself to use instantly.

Friends and family not online?

If you're telling friends and family how to reclaim lost vouchers, but they don't have internet access, there is another way. Just phone Tesco customer services, and its staff will check whether you have any vouchers to spend. If so, it'll cancel the lost vouchers and add the points onto your balance for your next statement, so you'll get them re-issued.

Here are some MoneySavers who've shown it's worth the effort:

MoneySavers have so far found £32,692.50 in lost Tesco vouchers!
Worth up to £130,770 when converted to Clubcard Rewards vouchers.

"WOW - I've got £413 of unspent vouchers! Double that for Christmas - I think we'll be alright. Or quadruple with Virgin Holidays? Ridiculously excited."

"Almost £600 worth of vouchers going back nearly three years. I knew I had a lot and this new website saved me having to dig though piles of old paperwork."

"Thanks to your article, we found that we had nearly £150 of unclaimed Tesco vouchers! We have already doubled the vouchers' value online, which has been incredibly useful for Christmas."

"Thanks for the tip on checking unused vouchers - just found over £50 worth not used - don't know how that happened but am happy to spend them now!"

Step 2: Check if you can get up to 4x value

You can get two, three or four times the value on your points by converting vouchers into Clubcard Boost Partner* tokens for days out, experiences, restaurants and more. These were previously known as Tesco Rewards.

Every now and then you can get double the value in store via the Boost at Tesco scheme, which lets you swap £5 worth of vouchers for £10 to spend in some departments both in-store and online. We'll add full info to this guide when it's next on.
