Tesco Clubcard 2: Double Points!

TESCO DOUBLES CUSTOMER REWARDS IN FURTHER BOOST TO CLUBCARD

- Almost half a million new customers sign up since May re-launch -
Tesco today announced the launch of Double Points on Clubcard giving customers even more reasons to shop at Tesco and making the UKs most popular loyalty scheme bigger, better and more rewarding.

From Monday, Tesco Clubcard holders will receive double Clubcard points two points for every £1 they spend across the store and online as Tesco says an even bigger thank you to shoppers.

The move is the next phase of Tescos Clubcard re-launch, following the success of Double Up which doubled the reward for customers on selected categories and has attracted almost half a million new Clubcard customers in just three months. In the same period more than 1.5 million customers doubled up their vouchers with the most popular categories being clothing and wine.

Now Tesco has made a major change to the way customers collect points by automatically awarding double points across the store and online making Clubcard simpler and even more rewarding for customers.

Announcing the launch of Double Points, Carolyn Bradley, Tesco's UK Marketing Director said: "The UKs biggest and best loyalty scheme just got even better for customers who stand to double their rewards simply by continuing to shop at Tesco. No other supermarket offers customers the low prices and great promotions they want as well as a big thank you for shopping.

Clubcard is our unique way of rewarding customers for their loyalty and our latest research tells us that it is more important to them than ever before. As the rewards just got even bigger with Double Points we expect more customers will see the no catch money saving advantages of Clubcard and sign up. Why wouldnt you? Its free, its easy and all you have to do is shop!

The move will help millions of families around the country make their money go further and has been launched in time for customers to receive vouchers in their next mailing before Christmas - the time when most customers need help to stretch their budgets.
A family spending £90 a week at Tesco* between now and Christmas could now earn £34 in Clubcard vouchers instead of £17. Vouchers can then be spent in store or online or exchanged for up to 4x the value on a great range of Clubcard Partner Offers. £34 in Clubcard Partner Offers vouchers is enough for a return flight to Paris just for doing the weekly shop!

Points can be collected on and used to buy products across the store and online from one of Tesco Directs best selling TVs - Panasonic 42 full HD LCD TV with built in Freeview - priced at £649.97 (earning customers 1298 Clubcard points instead of 649 points) to popular gift ideas such as a Nintendo Wii Console & Sports pack + Wii Fit priced at £219.97 (earning customers 438 Clubcard points instead of 219). The more customers spend at Tesco the bigger the rewards.

When stores around the country close on Sunday afternoon thousands of staff will work through the night to prepare the store for the launch and a nationwide marketing campaign will also begin which will include new television and print adverts.

No dpubt this will further devalue the rewards.........after Virgin and Cosmos have now put £400 and £700 limitis on the amount of holiday that can be paid for with clubcard points!
#2
Yes rather worried about devaluation myself, best start spending my saved points!.
#3
pleased about this but concerned like others have said about rewards being devalued. I hope they still keep 250 points for £10 of deals vouchers.
Does fuel get 2 points for every £1 spend also?
#4
when did the virgin limit kick in then ???????

Virgin £700 per passenger limit starts September 1st
Cosmos £400 per passenger limit starts September 1st

I suspect there will be a marked increase in the number of vouchers required to purchase items. We are looking to use our next lot of vouchers for 3 family Merlin passes. My wife phoned to confirm the amount of vouchers we have and the amount coming. The customer service agent informed my wife that we would have enough when we recieve the next issue of vouchers "at the CURRENT voucher price". My wife asked if the "voucher cost" was due to increase but the agent stated "I am unable to confirm that I am affraid".

On the positive side though I have to say it is IMO one of the best schemes available as we have benefitted from weekly shopping and fuel purchases through the points being exchanged for family based products like Merlin Passes each year. :-D

the last post strongly suggests that prices are set to increase. probably going to double to make it £5 of vouchers for £10 worth of deals :( will have to convert our vouchers as soon as august vouchers arrive

Oh, the cost could go down though!! £5 for £25 in deals. This would increase attraction to those who are not yet on the Tesco bandwagon!!
#10
should this be in vouchers/freebies? :?
#11
Yep.. not a deal..
#12
I will be converting my coupons asap

Technically, it isn't a freebie as you need to spend to get the points, and they aren't vouchers either! :)

The Virgin and Cosmos limits are per passenger NOT per holiday

Or that the price of Merlin passes increases each year. Which they have done. Too early to speculate which is the reality.
#16
You get double points with clubcard plus and credit card, so 4 points per £1. :thumbsup:

As an aside i wonder what Sainsburys will do. Only found out recently that they only give 'single points' on fuel. Each point is effectively worth half as much as an old clubcard point anyway so it's only 0.5p per litre whereas clubcard was 1p.

thanks for the info xxx

I'm sceptical of any points scheme offered by companies. They're using it to collect information about you for marketing purposes and to tie you into using their shops by making you think you're being rewarded as a regular customer. I don't have any real issues with that but...

Why not just use ASDA's policy of make prices as cheap as possible? Think how much Tesco spend on this scheme - issuing cards, employing admins to take registrations and enter customer data, marketing (like this!), the costs of the computer system (to build it and maintain it), dealing with issues and comlaints... I'd rather they just reduced the price of a few popular products instead. :x

I have a clubcard myself simply because there's no point not using one since they offer it, but I tend to shop at ASDA because of their values - simply low prices.

/rant :)

* I have no affiliation with ASDA! I just feel the same about all these schemes, especially Nectar. *

I fail to see how this simplifies the earning of points... if anything it adds yet another layer of complexity IMHO.
#21
I agree Asda is cheaper, but if a Tescos is closer then my time and petrol have to factor in!. The clubcard scheme used to be good but I'm going to spend my points before it's devalued!.
#22
It could be a way for Tescos to devalue all the points people are saving up to make a big purchase!. I'll not be happy if this is the case!
#23
Where I live, Falkirk, ASDA and Tesco are right next to each other so I use both - not for pricing but because they both stock different products/brands I prefer. There's also a Morriesons in close proximity but I rarely go there... they often have great one-off deals but overall their pricing doesn't seem so great.
#24
Never liked Tesco's scheme, you have to wait 3 months to get your rewards...why can't they go on your account immediately like Sainsbury's Nectar points? I never exchange the voucher thingy for 'deals' either because you have to send off for them...far too much of a faff!!!!!

...Tesco's stinks anyway, Sainsbury's has far nicer food...if a little more expensive!

Yep, just marketing. Offer people double points and they automatically think better value.
#26
any ideas how much they are going to be devalued by xxx

Clubcard Plus is no longer available for new sign ups. If you already have one....it means you get triple points on spend :)
#29
Thanks for info will wait to see what happens might have to get organized and order some rewards. I like this scheme as it is I have a large family and would not really be able to go to theme parks and stuff without these vouchers so hope it does not change too much

I've had some fantastic weekend breaks at Marriot hotels through Clubcard Deals.....hardly call that a faff. Only takes a couple of mins to order the necessary vouchers online. :thumbsup:

You don't HAVE to send off for them, you can do it online which takes only a few minutes, and I've never had to wait more than 4 days for any of mine!
#33
Agree that it seems likely that all rewards may now become double up, as Tesco will be able to say that because they have doubled the number of points being earned, you will still earn the rewards at the same rate. However, they are unlikely to mention the thousands of pounds worth of vouchers that people (including myself) are saving up which will be instantly devalued.

If they do do this they'd better give plenty of notice...

:thumbsup: +1 here.
my feelings exactly.

we used to shop at tesco,cost us about £80 a week.
asda is about £60, and we now have a 3 month old baby to feed too.
points aint that important...just cheap prices please

There is no mention of the value of deals changing i.e up to 4 times the value. Does anyone know if this will still be the case once Clubcard 2 is launched? Im saving up to go to Vegas with Virgin next year and Im almost up to the revised £700 per person limit. I dont want to loose out here!

They've said nothing, it's all just speculation on our part.

Speculation so far, but definitely possible. Only thing we know is that you'll get more money off instore on groceries.

EDIT: More money off using new points not old, wasn't very clear!

I'm not sure it bothers me that much having to wait 3 months really, though I do like the rewards from Tesco. I do remember I ended up ditching my Nectar card, didn't feel the rewards were worthwhile, bought fuel for a good few years from the same Sainsburys petrol station and when I got round to checking the statements really didn't feel I was getting much of a reward back to even bother carrying the card around. That was some years back so not sure if that's changed or not...

...i'd agree with you about the food though. Tesco's isn't bad, but Sainsburys stuff is a little nicer. Plus the main benefit for me is my nearest Tesco is always absolutely rammed and it's a nightmare to find a space, even late evening, whereas with Sainsburys it's not so busy. I can't tolerate busy supermarkets with morons leaving their trolleys diagonally across the isle, really grinds my gears!

how please

I think IF they did devalue their vouchers there would be a massive uproar and backlash on tesco from a lot of people who are saving up. They would be stupid to do so - a bit like Orange last week who backtracked due to people power. Stupid really.

I for one will not shop in tesco anymore if they devalue my current savings.
