Trick: Get 20% off gift cards for Odeon, Pizza Express, New Look and Gap, then stack with other offers

Until Sun 11 Mar, you can get 20% off selected Odeon, Pizza Express, New Look and Gap gift cards at Tesco stores (find your nearest*), subject to availability. The discount will be applied automatically at the checkout and there are no refunds available on in-store purchases, or you can buy the gift cards online at Tesco*, though you’ll incur a delivery charge.

We’re not big fans of giving these as gifts at MSE, because often people forget to use them before they expire, and if a firm goes bust, its gift cards are usually rendered useless. So we suggest you buy them for yourself, provided those are places you’d go to anyway, then use them when there’s an offer on to save even more money.
