Tesco Clubcard customers can double the value of their vouchers from Monday (18 May) to spend on 12 categories online and in-store, including gaming, travel and electricals.

The supermarket's exchange scheme enables customers to swap multiples of £5 vouchers for £10 tokens to spend in some departments. See our Tesco Clubcard guide for more info on how the loyalty scheme works, including how to reclaim lost points.

Customers have until Sunday 28 June to swap vouchers either in stores or online, and vouchers must then be redeemed by 11.59pm on this date.

What can I exchange tokens for?

You can exchange vouchers for goods in the following categories, both online and in stores:

  • Garden & BBQs
  • Opticians
  • Clothing
  • Toys
  • Home, cook and dine
  • Mobile phones and accessories
  • Skin care, cosmetics and fragrance
  • Electricals
  • Entertainment and books
  • Gaming
  • Sports and leisure
  • Travel and camping

Exchange tokens cannot be swapped back into points or into cash, so make sure you'll definitely use them before converting your points. You need a minimum of £5 before you can exchange vouchers.

When shopping in-store you can exchange vouchers to spend on any of the 12 categories. If you want to shop online, you'll need to select the section of the website you want to spend in before you exchange your vouchers.

What are Clubcard vouchers?

Shoppers who use a Tesco Clubcard get one point for every £1 spent either in store or online at the supermarket. Points can also be earned at selected retailers such as Living Social and Blinkbox.

Each point is worth 1p in vouchers to spend at Tesco. The value is converted into Clubcard vouchers, which are sent out every three months as long as customers have a balance of at least 150 points.

Vouchers can also be exchanged throughout the year at non-Tesco retailers, where it is possible to get up to four times the value to use at restaurants and on days out, for example.

How many vouchers can I double for exchange tokens?

Only Clubcard vouchers in £5 multiples can be exchanged – but these can be made up of smaller vouchers, for example, two £2.50 vouchers. It means £5 worth of vouchers will become a £10 exchange token.

If the total in vouchers is not a multiple of five, the amount will be rounded down for exchange, and the rest will be credited back to your Clubcard account in points and carried over to your next statement.

So if you have a £7 voucher, you can convert £5 of that into a £10 exchange token and the remaining £2 will be credited back to your account in points.

There's no limit on the number of Clubcard vouchers that can be exchanged and no limit on the amount in tokens that can be redeemed before the deadline.

Where can I make the exchange?

The exchange can be made in all Tesco superstores, Extra stores and Metro stores. Exchanges can also be made online. You can't make an exchange in Tesco Express branches.

Where can I spend exchange tokens?

Tokens can be spent in any Tesco superstore, Extra store or Metro store where the item you want is being sold, as well as online at Tesco.com.

You can't exchange or use a token in an Express store. But if you buy online, you can collect your purchase from selected Express stores with Click and Collect desks.

Can I get change from the exchange tokens?

No. The cost of the products purchased must equal or exceed the value of the exchange tokens. This means you can't use a £10 token to buy an £8 item. Even if you wouldn't mind losing the £2, you couldn't do it.

Can I buy something worth more than I have in exchange tokens?

Yes. You can pay the difference yourself.

What if I buy something and want to return it?

Items purchased with an exchange token can be exchanged only for goods that are also part of the Boost event and that are of the same or higher value.

If you want a refund, you will get the value of the initial Clubcard voucher, NOT the doubled-up value of the exchange token.
