Get a £25 gift card for £20 for New Look, Gap, Google Play and more, then stack with sales

One of the things we love to do at MSE is take advantage of deals and play the system, and this deal is perfect for it.

Until Sun 17 Jun, you can get 20% off gift cards to spend at New Look, Gap, Google Play, Pizza Express and various other restaurants – simply pick them up in a Tesco or Asda store, where the discount will be applied automatically at the checkout. You can also buy the gift cards online at Tesco* though you may 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. But if you were going to shop in one of those retailers anyway, it’s a great way to double your discount. It’s a great way to do Father’s Day on a budget too.

The trick with this is to boost your discount by stacking the discounted gift cards, with a sale, voucher or promotion at the shop/restaurant you’ll spending it in. As a gift card is just a payment method, and it’s effectively like using cash, it shouldn’t affect any other promotions, and won’t normally break any ‘not to be used with other offers’ rules you commonly see. Here are the gift cards on offer:

Tesco gift cards (online and in-store)

 New Look: £25 gift card for £20. Expires: 24 months from date of purchase.

 Gap: £25 gift card for £20. Expires: 24 months from date of purchase.

 Google Play: £25 gift card for £20. Expires: No expiry.

 Pizza Express: £20 gift card for £16. Expires: 24 months from date of purchase.

Asda gift cards (sold in stores only)

 New Look: £25 gift card for £20. Expires: 24 months from date of purchase.

 Gap: £25 gift card for £20. Expires: 24 months from date of purchase.

 Google Play: £25 gift card for £20. Expires: No expiry.

 Restaurant Card (valid at Las Iguanas, La Tasca, Bella Italia, Café Rouge and Belgo): £20 gift card for £16. Expires: 24 months from date of purchase.

One great example of how to use these discounted gift cards to full effect is at Pizza Express. By purchasing a £20 gift card for £16, and stacking with an online voucher that gets 25% off, you’ll ultimately pay £16 for £26ish of food. See our restaurant deals.

With Father's Day this weekend, it might be a good opportunity to get a gift at a discounted price. For more gift inspiration, see our Father's Day deals page.
