Should you convert Tesco Clubcard points into Eden Project tickets?

Is it worth converting your Tesco Clubcard points into Eden Project tickets? And how do you do it? Today I want to look at whether the Eden Project 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 Eden Project tickets

You can convert your Clubcard vouchers into Eden Project tickets on this page of the Tesco website.

You will need £8 of Clubcard points for a day ticket for an adult and £4.50 for a child day ticket (children under 5 are free).  Following a recent change, tickets are now sent by email and not by post.

The ticket is valid for six months from the day you redeem.

Is Eden Project a good way to spend your Clubcard points?

It’s not too bad!

A Eden Project ticket on the door is £25. If you book online in advance you save 10% and pay £22.50. A senior ticket is £22.50 (£20 online), a student ticket is £20 (online £18) and a childrens ticket is £14 (£12.60)

(If you book in advance via the Eden Project’s website you need to select a start date and your tickets will be valid for 28 days from that date. A Clubcard ticket is valid for six months.)

On that basis, you are getting (£22.50 / £8 of Tesco vouchers) 2.8 x face value when looking at a pre booked ticket for an adult.  This is definitely at the upper end of what you can realistically get for your Clubcard points.

At certain times of the year it seems that there are discount codes and even the occasional 2-4-1 voucher available for the Eden Project.  Over the peak season, however, you are unlikely to find a better deal than this.  2.8 x face value for your Clubcard vouchers isn’t bad at all, although you might also want to consider redeeming for one of the other high value Clubcard point redemptions on our list.

  1. Having redeemed for this attraction recently a few points to note: 1) Concession tickets do not appear to be available for £6.50, just ‘Adult’ or ‘Child’; 2) Voucher codes are delivered by email, not post; 3) The clubcard voucher code is valid for 6 months, and you have to visit the Eden Project website to turn this into an actual ticket you can use on site. You do not select a day to attend and no obvious expiry date is shown on the ticket. Eden Project advised me that they do not think there is an expiry date once converted into an Eden ticket, but this requires clarification. All in all, I think it works out as good value if you were going to pay the entry price anyway!

    • Thanks David. Updates made.

      This article was written a few weeks ago and the rules of the deal seem to have changed since then. Tesco has even created a new Clubcard page for the deal.
