Even more points when you buy gift cards in Tesco

Buying gift cards for third party retailers (ie anyone except Tesco itself) is one of the easiest ways to generate totally free Clubcard points!

As I covered numerous times on Shopper Points, you receive 150 Clubcard points when you spend £50 on gift cards in a single transaction.  (A £100 purchase earns 300 points etc).

Heading to Pizza Express this weekend?  Buy some gift cards in Tesco and pay with those.  And so on, and so on.

You can see participating gift cards here on tesco.com.

Gift cards

Here is what has changed:

The new Tesco magazine, the Christmas edition with a big pudding on the front, is now out.  Free copies should be available in your local store.

On page 120, there is a coupon for 100 Clubcard points when you spend £20 on a single gift card.

In theory, you can use multiple vouchers per transaction.  Pick up five magazines and you get five coupons.  Buy £100 of gift cards – in £20 denominations – and you would get 500 Clubcard points from the five x 100 point vouchers plus 300 Clubcard points from the standard gift card bonus.

That is a very easy 800 points for, effectively, nothing – as long as you use the gift cards in shops where you would normally spend anyway.
