Is it worth converting your Tesco Clubcard points into Thorpe Park tickets? And how do you do it? Today I want to look at whether Thorpe Park is a good use of your Clubcard vouchers.
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 Thorpe Park tickets
You can convert your Clubcard vouchers into Thorpe Park tickets on this page of the Tesco website.
You will need £12.50 of Clubcard points for a ticket for either an adult or a child. Your ticket is emailed to you directly to print at home.
The ticket is valid for six months from the day you redeem.
Is Thorpe Park a good way to spend your Clubcard points?
On the face of it, yes.
A Thorpe Park ticket on the door is now a shocking £51.50! If you book online via the official website here 1-4 days in advance that comes down to £30.99 and more than 5 days in advance the ticket is £27.99.
(Booking in advance commits you to a particular day whatever the weather. A Clubcard ticket is flexible as long as you use it within six months.)
On that basis, you are getting (£51.50 / £12.50 of Tesco vouchers) 4.1 x face value. This is great.
However, there are often many special offers available on Thorpe Park 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. Thorpe Park is included. This would halve your entry cost for paying cash if 2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 1 child go.
However even if you book online in advance and use the Kellogg’s 2 for 1 voucher, you will still pay £44.99 for two tickets (1 child + 1 Adult). Your Clubcard vouchers are a better deal as you can get two tickets for £25.
However compared to the Kellogg’s offer you are only getting (£44.99 / £25 of Tesco vouchers) just under 2 x face value when using your Clubcard vouchers.
Thorpe Park is a good way to spend your Clubcard points, if you can’t find a 2-4-1 promotion currently available, but you might also want to consider redeeming for one of the other high value Clubcard point redemptions on our list.
