TESCO has issued a stark reminder about the imminent expiration of Clubcard vouchers set to occur this week. The supermarket giant has cautioned that these vouchers, a valuable form of loyalty reward, will lose their validity after a two-year period from the date of issue.
Customers are advised that Clubcard vouchers issued precisely two years ago are due to expire on Thursday, November 30. With a mere 72 hours left on the clock, Tesco underscores the urgency for individuals to utilise these vouchers promptly. Astonishingly, an estimated £16 million worth of these vouchers remains unclaimed, heightening the significance of this deadline.
To ascertain the status of their Clubcard vouchers, particularly for those still in possession of paper formats, customers can easily check the expiry date. The process involves accessing the Tesco Clubcard website, navigating to the ‘Clubcard account’ section, and selecting ‘Vouchers’. A Tesco.com account is necessary for this, and individuals must be equipped with their Clubcard number, obtainable from physical Clubcards or Clubcard key fobs. The website will display available vouchers and their respective expiry dates. Additionally, the Tesco app, within the Clubcard section, provides a convenient alternative for checking voucher status.
Tesco also reveals an enticing incentive to encourage customers to make the most of their Clubcard vouchers. By utilising them at Tesco’s ‘Reward Partners’, such as Disney+, Legoland, and Café Rouge, customers can double the value of their vouchers. For instance, while 500 points typically equate to a £5 spend in Tesco, they can be exchanged for codes to spend with a Reward Partner, elevating the value to £10.
Among the notable options, customers can use their vouchers for a Disney+ subscription, starting from just £4.99 per month. Moreover, ongoing Black Friday deals at Legoland provide an opportunity for a complimentary second day with any booking.
For those seeking an extension of their vouchers’ lifespan, Tesco offers a strategic approach. By making a modest purchase on the Tesco Clubcard Rewards page (distinct from in-store or other Tesco pages) or donating to one of Tesco’s partnered charities, the remaining balance is credited back as points to the Clubcard account. For instance, a 50p spend using a £10 Clubcard voucher results in 950 points being credited back (£9.50). Customers can subsequently manually swap these points for vouchers or wait for automatic conversion with the next statement, receiving new vouchers with a fresh two-year expiry date. It’s worth noting that this process needs to be repeated for each individual voucher, making it most beneficial for higher-value vouchers.
Emma Botton, Tesco Group Customer Director, emphasises the value of Clubcard in enhancing customers’ household budgets. She urges customers to capitalise on the £16 million worth of expiring Clubcard vouchers by either spending them now or strategically using them for early Christmas shopping. As households navigate budgetary constraints, Tesco positions Clubcard as an invaluable means of maximising value and making every pound count.
