Is it worth converting your Tesco Clubcard points into London Dungeon tickets? And how do you do it? Today I want to look at whether the London Dungeon is a good use of your Clubcard vouchers.
You can find out more about the London Dungeon on their website here.
Not all Clubcard Boost offers are a great deal. This page of Shopper Points helps you decide which is the best Clubcard redemption by listing ALL Clubcard Boost offers based on the multiple of face value you get.
As you can see, offers range from 4 x face value (days out vouchers, restaurant deals) down to 2 x. Even at double the face value, of course, you are getting a better deal than redeeming your vouchers in a Tesco store at face value.
Spending Clubcard vouchers on London Dungeon tickets
You can convert your Clubcard vouchers into London Dungeon tickets on this page of the Tesco website.
You will need £8 of Clubcard points for a ticket for either an adult or a child. There is no age restriction, however the London Dungeon is recommended for children aged 12 and over. Under 16 year olds are only allowed admission when accompanied by an adult aged 18 and over.
Your ticket will be delivered by post within 5 days of ordering.
The token can only be used against standard admission and not for special events.
Entry is not guaranteed during busy periods due to safety reasons.
The ticket is valid for six months from the day you redeem.
Is London Dungeon a good way to spend your Clubcard points?
Let’s say ‘it depends’.
As you can see from their website, a London Dungeon ticket on the door is now £28.95 (£24.45 for children under the age of 16). If you book online in advance that comes down to £19.95 (£18.50 for children under the age of 16).
The advantage of booking in advance FOR CASH is that your entry is guaranteed as you can choose a specific time slot for your arrival. If you have a Clubcard ticket, you might have to queue longer and could end up not getting in at all. It would be useful to call the Dungeon prior to your visit and ask them about the least busiest time slots.
If you have a Clubcard ticket, you can NOT choose a time slot in advance.
The good thing about the Clubcard ticket is its flexibility, as long as you use it within six months. If something comes up last minute, you can always go another day.
On that basis, you are getting 3.6 x face value compared to tickets bought on the door (£28.95 / £8 of Tesco vouchers). This is ok.
However, there are often many special offers available on London Dungeon tickets.
Some brands of Kellogg’s cereal, for example, currently have a ‘buy a child ticket and get a free adult ticket’ coupon printed on them. London Dungeon is included. This would more than halve the cost for paying cash if 2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 1 child go.
If you want guaranteed entrance, it is worth going for the Kellogg’s ‘Kids go free’ offer instead of redeeming your Clubcard vouchers as you can book those tickets online in advance and choose a time slot. As a ticket for a child is £24.45 under this offer, each ticket (based on 1 free adult and 1 paying child) would be £12.22. That’s 50% more than the face value of the Clubcard tickets, but entry is guaranteed – and getting £12.22 of value for £8 of Clubcard vouchers is a poor deal anyway.
If you can find a Kellogg’s voucher or another 2-4-1 deal there are better ways of redeeming your Clubcard points than for the London Dungeon. You should consider redeeming for one of the other high value Clubcard point redemptions on our list.
