A while ago I wrote all about how to make the most of your store loyalty cards and top of my list was the Tesco Clubcard because, at the time it was the card that I thought I generally got the most benefit from – mainly because it’s easy to earn points and because I get the vouchers through the door every few months, I really do feel like I see the rewards.
Then this week Tesco contacted me to say that they’d seen my post and wondered if I’d heard about the Clubcard boost scheme (I had) and asked me if I’d be interested in writing about it. Coincidentally, my Tesco vouchers also arrived through the post with the vouchers we’ve earned in the last few months on our own Tesco Clubcard.
I decided to try out the Clubcard Boost myself and then if it really was as easy as it sounded then I’d write about it so off I popped to my local Tesco with the vouchers from this time and some that I’d saved from last time – totaling £20 – to see what I could do with it.
Basically, you can boost your Clubcard vouchers by redeeming one or more of your £5 voucher to get £10 to spend in each of the following departments:
- Hudl and Hudl accessories (I’m dying to have a play with one of these)
- Baby and Toddler
- Phones and accessories
- Toys and bikes
- Skincare, cosmetics and fragrance
- Finest wine and Finest champagne
- Furniture, cook, dine and home
I swapped my £20 vouchers for £40 to spend in the toy department and headed to the toy aisle with my list:
Lego was top of my list as Master Frugal has asked for lots of it for Christmas and it isn’t the cheapest thing to buy although it’s worth every penny because of the hours he plays with it for and I was extremely pleased to find that two of the Lego sets that he’s asked for were not only in store but on a 2 for £30 offer:
I put the rest of the vouchers towards the Moshi advent calendar that Miss Frugal has had her eye on since she first saw it:
Now that’s what I call a Rewards scheme
That’s another £40 that I can say that I’ve made towards paying for Christmas this year because I would have bought these things with or without the rewards boost so it’s all money saved.
Disclosure: I’ve written about Tesco Clubcard in the past because I think it’s great but on this occasion Tesco have kindly offered to let me choose some things from their site as a treat.
