15th January was the last day to pick up 500 free Clubcard points with Tesco’s PayQwiq payment app in their Christmas promotion, but don’t worry if you didn’t get around to trying this new paying method.
A new offer was launched yesterday letting you earn another 500 free Clubcard points when trying PayQwiq.
Until recently you were only able to use this app to pay for your Tesco shopping in around 1,300 shops throughout the UK. This has now been extended to the rest of the UK. Wherever you live, you can now use PayQwiq in Tesco.
How does it work?
You install the PayQwiq app on your smartphone (Android or Apple)
You link your Clubcard number and one or more credit cards to PayQwiq
When in a Tesco store, you pay by scanning a barcode in the PayQwiq app. This automatically credits your Clubcard account with the relevant points and charges your linked credit card for the purchase.
There is no additional cost, or saving, to paying with cash or a credit card.
Get 500 Clubcard points for giving PayQwiq a try
Tesco is currently offering an extra 50 Clubcard points with each of your first 10 PayQwiq transactions as the Tesco Payqwiq site explains. This offer expires on 7th May 2017 so there is enough time to make the most of this offer.
The only two bits of small print you need to remember are:
- you must keep the app installed for 14 days
- the 50 bonus points for each of your first ten transactions will be added in arrears
If you want to give PayQwiq a go, take a look at the details of this offer online, download the app and try it out in your local store. There is no minimum transaction size – I have seen reports of people who have bought items for under £1 and still received the bonus.
Existing or new customers?
PayQwiq has sent an email about these bonus points to some (not me!) existing PayQwiq customers with this small print:
One offer per customer. Offer available only to existing PayQwiq customers who receive this email directly from PayQwiq. Clubcard points will be added to a future Clubcard statement.
There is no mention of whether you need to be an existing customer in the FAQs on the PayQwiq website:
Only one offer per customer. If you close your PayQwiq account within the first 14 days you will not receive the Clubcard points. Clubcard points will be added to a future Clubcard statement.
This probably means that if you are an existing customer you can only collect the 500 Clubcard points if you received the email.
On the other hand, if you are new to PayQwiq you will definitely receive the bonus if you sign up. The Tesco Payqwiq page is here.Want to earn more Clubcard or Nectar points?
