Martin Lewis Saving Tesco Clubcard

Customers who have a Clubcard will earn points each time they shop, with one point given for each £1 spent at Tesco. They can also earn points when buying Tesco fuel, with one point for every £2 spent. The points soon add up and can be used to take money off your shop in store or online, with 150 points worth a £1.50 Tesco voucher. However, customers can also triple the points' value by spending them with one of Tesco's partners such as Pizza Express or Now TV.

As the Covid-19 crisis continues across the country, many of us are not frequenting our local supermarkets as often as usual. And this means Britain's biggest grocer has announced a shake-up when it comes to its famous loyalty and rewards schemes. The supermarket giant - which operates multiple stores across Birmingham - announced the shake-up and rule change today. In an alert to customers, shoppers were informed of the big changes coming to Clubcard points. But it is very good news indeed.

Tesco operates stores across Birmingham and throughout the Midlands region, with supermarkets from the city centre to further afield. The chain has operated its Clubcard scheme, giving customers a raft of benefits and rewards, for years. Many shoppers are currently struggling to get to the supermarket or order home delivery slots online without having to wait for hours at a time. That said, some of us haven't been able to get to our favourite supermarket for some time, and have instead been opting for closer, smaller or more convenient stores. However, this has meant that shoppers have struggled to spend their loyalty points, and risk them expiring before they've been used.

Tesco understands this, and has issued a statement to shoppers confirming that Clubcard points due to expire this month will be extended. Zoe Evans of Tesco's customer engagement centre said: "We appreciate that, for many reasons, most of us aren't shopping as often as we did before lockdown. "As a little help from Clubcard, we want to give you more time to use your vouchers which were due to expire on 31 May 2020.

"Any vouchers issued in May 2018 will now not expire until 30 November 2020, giving you an extra 6 months to use them. "We'll update the expiry date on your digital vouchers, and we'll continue to accept paper vouchers in-store until the extended expiry date. "We really hope it helps, and take care."
