Today I am looking at why Goldsmiths is one of my preferred Tesco Clubcard redemptions.
If you’ve looked at our list of Clubcard redemptions ranked by the multiple of face value you receive, you will see that it comes with a caveat.
Not all Clubcard redemptions are as good as they seem.
Let’s take Pizza Express as an example. In theory, you receive 4 x the face value of your Clubcard vouchers when you redeem for Pizza Express meals. In reality, you may receive less because – at least midweek – Pizza Express often has voucher codes or email deals available which cannot be combined with Tesco vouchers.
Similarly, when I looked at redeeming Tesco vouchers for Hilton hotels, you may remember that you need to pay the ‘cancellable’ price with your Clubcard vouchers – even though your stay is not refundable.
In this new occasional series, I will be taking a look at my pick of the best redemptions in terms of getting a genuine bargain. I am starting with my reasons for using Tesco Clubcard vouchers at Goldsmiths.
I want to start with the jewellers Goldsmiths because it is a redemption I have done myself in the past, getting myself a very smart Montblanc pen.
As you can see here at tesco.com, you receive 3 x the face value of your Tesco Clubcard vouchers when you redeem them at Goldsmiths.
As Goldsmiths is generally ‘firm’ on its pricing (most jewellery manufacturers discourage discounting to the extent possible by law) it enhances the value of your points.
There are some restrictions:
You cannot redeem Tesco Clubcard points for Rolex watches
You can only use one converted Clubcard code per transaction, which means you cannot mix points from multiple accounts
You cannot use your tokens online – the product you want must be available instore (note that some online products are ‘online only’)
Sale products are excluded
Unofficially, some people have had trouble redeeming Tesco Clubcard vouchers for limited edition watches where stock has been heavily restricted
Apart from that, you can do whatever you like. There is no cap on the points you can redeem at Goldsmiths and it is perfectly acceptable to pay 100% of the price with converted Tesco Clubcard vouchers.
Goldsmiths stores tend to vary in stock depending on what part of the country you are in. The one at London Victoria has more high-end brands than usual, as do Bishopsgate and Canary Wharf in London. TAG Heuer watches, for example, are only in selected stores.
There are 700 reviews on the Tesco Clubcard / Goldsmiths webpage and almost all are very positive. If you are looking to use your Clubcard vouchers for a genuinely good deal it is well worth a look.Want to earn more Clubcard or Nectar points?
