TODAY (Monday) is the last day to get a very generous discount on what is bound to be the best selling book of the year – Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
The much-hyped (and apparently very good, given feedback from the previews) play opens next Saturday in London’s West End – and the printed version of the 2-part stage play follows the next day.
If you pre-order Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts I & II (Special Rehearsal Edition) at Tesco Direct before the TONIGHT (Monday) you will not only make sure to receive the book as soon as it’s been published, you also pay just £10 instead of £20 and receive 100 extra Clubcard points.
If you value the Clubcard points at 3 x face value, this means that you are getting the book for just £7 instead of the £20 recommend price.
Interestingly, the book – in the form – will only be available until the end of 2016 so it will even have novelty value in years to come. A 2nd version, containing the final cut of the script – it will have changed slightly during the rehearsal process – will be released in early 2017 and will replace this edition.
The story is inspired by J. K. Rowling and has been written exclusively for stage by Jack Thorne and John Tiffany.
This is the play’s official synopsis:
‘It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places’
Remember that you will be covered by Tesco’s pre-order guarantee. If Tesco ends up selling the book for less than £10 when it is released next Sunday, you will be refunded the difference between the £10 you paid and whatever the price ends up being.
As you are getting 100 Clubcard points (potentially worth £3 or more if spent cleverly) and paying just £10 for a £20 book, this looks like a good deal.visit the Shopper Points home page for the latest news and offers. Come back every day for new deals or join our email list.
