Back in January I wrote about a Tesco pet insurance deal and as this deal is coming to an end soon, here is a reminder for those who didn’t see the post and would love to get their furry friends insured.
If you take out pet insurance before 1st March 2016 you will receive 4000 Clubcard points.
The offer is working OK. People are receiving their 4000 points roughly 6 weeks after applying.
Here is how it works:
Simply enter the code TOPPET and your Clubcard number when getting a quote on the Tesco Bank website.
There are 4 different levels of pet insurance to choose from which you can compare on the website, but only Extra and Premier Cover will give you 4000 Clubcard points. As that is potentially worth over £100 of Clubcard Boost deals (this is our list of the most attractive Clubcard redemptions), this is a deal you should take a serious look at.
Out of curiosity I did a quote for my cat (see below!) here in London and also checked what the price would be in Wales. The result is not surprising – just slightly annoying.
If we lived on a farm in Wales, Extra Cover with an excess of £60 would cost just £8 a month. This would mean that, if I managed to get £100 of value from the 4000 points, I would effectively be getting a years coverage for free.
In North West London surrounded by busy streets the same insurance costs £20 a month. 4000 Clubcard points is still an attractive incentive to switch, as long as you are not currently paying something similar via another insurer.
The rules for the Tesco pet insurance promotion are:
- You have never had any pet policy covering this pet that has been declared void or been cancelled by Tesco Bank.
- You are the owner and keeper of the pet.
- You and the pet on the policy live in the UK, Isle of Man or Channel Islands.
- Your pet is at least 8 weeks old.
- Your pet is not on the list of uninsurable breeds.
- Your pet is not used for business, commercial breeding or for monetary gain.
- And if you’re insuring a dog: Your dog is not trained to attack, used for commercial guard or security purposes, or for any form of racing.
- If you cancel your policy within the first 30 days you will not receive the Clubcard points.
Unlike the recent life insurance deals where Tesco was giving you the Clubcard points in quarterly chunks, you will receive the points all at once here. This means even if you decide after a few months that the policy isn’t right for your needs, you can keep the full amount of Clubcard points.
It does not say how long Tesco will take to award your 4000 points but readers who took out the policy after we first wrote about it informed us that the points arrived within 6 weeks of taking out the policy.
Remember this offer is available until 1st March 2016 and is not available if you visit the Tesco Pet Insurance site from a link on a price comparison website.Want to earn more Clubcard or Nectar points?
