Tesco to launch Clubcard Plus loyalty scheme – costing £7.99/mth

Tesco has announced it is launching a new Clubcard Plus subscription service, which will give customers a number of perks, including discounted shopping, for a £7.99/month fee.

The new Clubcard Plus service will launch later this year and will be available to use in all Tesco stores in the UK.

At the moment, the detail on the scheme is very limited. Tesco says a lot is to be finalised and that it can't give us much detail, so it's difficult to analyse if it's good value or not. But it's the latest in a series of changes to the supermarket's long-standing loyalty scheme, which currently has 16 million members.

In June 2018, it revamped the scheme to make nearly all Clubcard vouchers worth three times their value via boost deals, while twice this year it's run a 'Clubcard Prices' promo, offering loyalty scheme members discounts of between 10% and 50% on hundreds of items.

For full info on the Tesco Clubcard scheme and how to make the most of it, see our Reclaim & Boost Tesco Vouchers guide.

 

What we know about Clubcard Plus so far

Based on the very limited info Tesco's released so far, when Clubcard Plus launches later this year subscribers will be able to take advantage of up to four benefits each month, depending on which Tesco services they use:

  • 10% off two big shops in-store – Tesco says you can get two shops of up to £200 each and save 10%, which would equal a maximum saving of £40. Although Tesco says exclusions and limits apply, and won't give further details on this, so it's difficult to know if this is good value.

  • 10% off selected Tesco brands in-store – these include F&F, Fred & Flo, Go Cook, Tesco Pet, Carousel and Fox & Ivy.

  • Double data from Tesco Mobile.

  • Tesco Bank credit card with no foreign exchange fees abroad – this perk is for over-18s and UK residents only. Other providers offer this perk on debit and credit cards too – see our Travel Credit Cards guide for full information.

    Tesco Bank already offers various credit cards. We're checking if this means it will be launching a new card or changing the terms on an existing card, and will update this story if we hear back.

We've asked Tesco for more details about how these benefits will work, but it says at the moment the detail is still to be finalised, so it can't give us further information. We'll provide extra detail, such as what is classed as a 'big shop in-store', when we have it.

How can you sign up for Clubcard Plus?

Full details on how to sign up for the service haven't been revealed yet, but Tesco says new and existing Clubcard members will be able to join.

It says customers who sign up will be able to cancel at any time.
