Tesco clubcard deal - x4 voucher value

55
Found 20th Sep 2007
Tesco are currently allowing you to "top-up" your clubcard points by paying extra funds into your clubcard account at the till.

WHY is this a good idea? Well, Tesco have a catalogue - both online and in-store which has "deals" in it. Basically the clubcard vouchers you get are worth up to x4 cash value if used via the clubcard deals.

Example: pay in £100 and get £400 off the price of your holiday

The deals cover all sorts of areas; RAC, Alton Towers, Blockbuster, flights, eating out - so take your pick.

Basically its far better to buy using the vouchers rather than just cashing them in at Tesco since you get x4 the value, but obviously it needs to basically be something you going to buy anyway. But for those of you already thinking about your 2008 holiday - how do you fancy it for 1/4 of the normal price!

Thanks for the re-post justin :thumbsup:

Where did you find out about this?

What happened to the other thread someone posted a few minutes ago?

HOT!

The tesco web site states that chrismas saver and bonus vouchers cannot be used for for clubcard deals only instore and online

How exactly do you topup? I work in Tesco (on the checkouts) and have not heard anything about this.

If you are talking about the Christmas Savers offer I am almost sure that vouchers for this cannot be used on deals. If they can then please tell me! Im just about to put £40 of vouchers on eBay so should hopefully get around £100 back.

Is this really happening? If I went into a Tesco store and asked them to put £1000 on my clubcard, I could essentially purchase a 2008 Virgin Holiday worth £4000? This sounds too good to be true... is there a link to somewhere online showing this?

I've just called Clubcard about this, and they weren't aware of this deal. The only thing they mentioned was something about a Christmas savings plan which can be topped up...

If this is real, I'll be heading to Tesco later today to secure that 2008 holiday!

If anyone can validate this, it would be much appreciated! Thanks to OP for bringing this to our attention.

Cheers

Call me cynical but if this is right I will eat my cat

i am confused as if you were buying shopping worth £100 you would get 100 points which is £40 in vouchers , so why would they give you £400 of deal vouchers for the same value as if you were buying shopping ,

can you explain more or link the page it tells you all about it , they would be losing alot of money by doing this i think

Bon Apetit. If it's good, you'll have to share the recipe. I normally don't like cats, but in a cream & white wine sauce, who knows?

If you buy 100 of shopping you get 1 pound of tokens, you can then trade this 1 pound of tesco tokens for 4 pounds of deal tokens. OP is saying you can buy tesco tokens (like the blue ones you get delivered at the end of the quarter) at a cost of 1 pound a token. These can them be converted to the deal tokens so whatever you pay in you allegedly can get 4x in deals.

I don't believe this is offer is real, I suspect it's a misunderstanding.

ok sorry im so confused on this offer just seems to good to be true

After a bit of thought I am tending towards the OP meaning topping up your Tesco CREDIT card with excess funds to get these extra points. Sounds like total BS to me though.

I don't own a hat, but if this is true, then I'll buy one (from Tesco, to get some points!) THEN eat it, THEN i'll go and get a cheap holiday and send my apologies for doubting anybody.

Well I just checked on the Clubcard site and was looking for a butlins holiday next year and it looks indeed to be correct.

For the Butlins Holidays its Brochure prices you have to pay, but on checking it out the Holiday I wanted online came to £495, but the brochure price is £710.

So in theory I just need to buy £180 worth of Clubcard vouchers and my holiday is paid for.

Unless im missing something.

:w00t: LMao that made me laugh

sounds like a misunderstanding to be too - however I'll keep my eyes peeled - ready to run to tesco with the contents of my savings account!

You're right Darren, but the point we're discussing is weather there's the option to actually 'buy' vouchers... The only way I know to get vouchers is to earn them through spending money on good via Tesco.

The only reference I can find to this is on the Irish site, tesco.ie/clu…tml .

Tesco wouldn't be stupid enough to do this, or I could get a £4k holiday for £1k, as mentioned above. How on earth would their partners justify giving that away?

If this were real and top-ups uncapped, Virgin holidays would pull out of their partnership with Tesco pretty sharpish - other partners would follow and those too late to cash in their vouchers would be left with thousands of clubcard points and only Tescos in which to spend them.

Sounds like a misunderstanding to me.

yes thats correct, its has always been 4x points value for deals,but the poster is saying you can top up your points by paying money in & get 4x on that too.

Irish sites quotes

What joys will my November Clubcard Statement bring?
Clubcard Vouchers for the Clubcard Points you have collected all year.
Top-up Vouchers if you have topped-up your balance at the till.

so even if they are doing this outside ireland, seems the money you pay in to 'top up' comes in the form of 'top up' vouchers NOT clubcard vouchers so arfent going be be worth 4x on deals, probably have to spend them in store.

So its basically just electronic xmas saving stamps then.

Can anyone confirm if this is as the OP suggests, as I'm getting ready to take £2k from my account for the holiday of a lifetime? :-D

tesco.com/clu…bs/

If you have a look at the bottom of this page in the exec clubs, the limit is £360 per year, which is still pretty good.

Worked this out with my brother-in-law who work at Tesco Head office.

Still worth it though

It wouldn't do you any good anyway, from Tesco ie website :

Top-ups can be made in multiples of 50c up to an overall maximum of €360

yes but if what it says on the irish site is correct the additional money you pay in come back as top up vouchers not clubcard vouchers, and can only be used in store, not for deals. Its just like a christmas club I suppose

If your bro in-law works at Tesco Head Office and he's aware of this, surely that must mean that the offer is legit.

£360 is still better than nothing, which works out £1,440 per year and if you have multiple cards, you can put the yearly limit on each card and still get a great holiday.

:!: It's a misunderstanding.
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]If you do a google search for ]Tesco Christmas Saver (whic is what this deal seems to be about) you will find that it links to the ]Ireland site, as has already been pointed out, and it is in euros, so it probably does not apply to the UK.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]It says:[/SIZE]
[INDENT][COLOR=black]What about existing Clubcard Vouchers which I have at home?[/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]If you have any existing valid Clubcard Vouchers, these can also be taken to the checkout and used to top-up your savings. They will be treated in the same way as a cash top-up[/COLOR]
[/INDENT][SIZE=2]In other words, you can only convert your clubcard vouchers into savings at the cash rate, which as you all know, is a very bad thing to do. It is probably even worse than using them as cash, because the money is tied up for a while.[/SIZE]

on tesco clubcard site under where it says wine club etc it does say christmas club & the £360 limit etc, so they may do it in UK, BUT even if they do I am sure it is the same terms

Plus it also means having your points held back until november every year, so for people who use codes etc to get lots of extra points you would have a very big balance after a year which could look suspicious!!

My B-I-L heard about this ages ago, but with all of the offers they have through, he just deleted it. He also mentioned that Tesco's are setting up recycling centres where you get a club card point for every piece you recycle.

The only thing you have to work out is if you are actually getting a good deal. It may not work out as good as you think.

It is in essence a christmas club. They are giving an opportunity to take the place of that company that folded last year with all of the money lost!!!

Am confused. IUf i order £600 worth of vouchers for virgin i can book a week in NYC worth £2400 and use the vouchers. So all it will cost me is £600

This sounds to good to be true.

Paul..Theoretically yes...But I doubt that the OP has got it right:thinking: Youre right.... too good to be true!. Everyone would simply 'buy' the tokens and then get 4x face value in deals. eg £4000 holiday for £1000 vouchers. Just wont happen!! Even Tesco's massive profits would take an almighty hit. I hope I am wrong and Christmas comes early. Got my hands on some readies to rush to Tesco with...Just in case.:thumbsup:

Yep - ours in Dunfermline do too.!! 1 point for every plastic tesco bag you recycle. I have found a good one to be recyling toner cartridges for inkjets etc. While there are some restrictions to type - 50 points a cartridge. Bags instore.

I think we need to try this out so if anybody does decide to go to tesco and purchase vouchers plese lets us all no!!!!

Really hope this is true coz it would b amazin
