Is it worth converting your Tesco Clubcard points into Kensington Palace tickets? And how do you do it? Today I want to look at whether this is a good use of your Clubcard points.
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 Kensington Palace tickets
You can convert your Clubcard vouchers into Kensington Palace tickets on this page of the Tesco website.
You will need £2.50 of Clubcard points for a £10 Clubcard token to be used on any ticket bought on the door (children under 16 are free). Your tokens will be posted to you within 7 working days so this is no good for a spur of the moment visit.
The tokens are valid for six months from the day you redeem.
Is Kensington Palace a good way to spend your Clubcard points?
On the face of it, yes.
A Kensington Palace ticket on the door is £18 (£16.50 November to February). If you book online in advance that comes down to £16.90 (£15.40 November to February).
(Booking in advance commits you to a particular day whatever the weather. Using Clubcard tokens is flexible as long as you use them within six months.)
You can only exchange Clubcard vouchers in multiples of £2.50, so £2.50 gets you £10 of tokens, £5 gets you £20 of tokens etc. Because the tickets are priced at £18 each, you will have to either top up with cash or order more tokens than you actually need.
Assuming that you are not willing to commit to booking in advance, you do get 4 x face value for your Clubcard tokens which is great. Even if you were willing to book in advance, the saving is relatively modest (less than 10%) and doesn’t seriously impact the value you get from using Tesco points.
However depending on the amount of tickets and the additional cash you might pay the face value will be slightly below 4 x. If you only want one £18 ticket, for example, you need to exchange £5 of Clubcard vouchers for a £20 token – and you won’t get £2 change back!
Kensington Palace is a good way to spend your Clubcard points, but you might also want to consider redeeming for one of the other high value Clubcard point redemptions on our list.
