Reminder: Get 500 free Clubcard points for trying PayQwiq

Here is a reminder of the current Tesco PayQwiq offer in case you missed our last article last month.  It would be a shame to miss out on these easy Clubcard points.

In total, you can earn 500 free Clubcard points when trying PayQwiq over the next few weeks.  And it is now available wherever you live.

This is pretty generous as all you need to do is download an app, link a credit or debit card and use your phone to pay.

Until recently you were only able to use this paying method in around 1,300 shops throughout the UK. This has finally been extended and you can now use PayQwiq in Tesco stores throughout the UK.

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  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.

  1. Used three weeks ago but not had any bonus points added yet?

  2. Wife’s had her 500, I’ve had mine, & daughter currently at 350 points

  3. I’ve used it 7 times and had a lump sum of 500 points added at around use 3 or 4. Don’t really understand why…. Meanwhile a friend at work has used it 5 or 6 times and hasn’t had anything yet.

  4. My wife and I are both existing customers, and collected the 500 points last time round.

    We did get an email from them in January saying that it was now available in all stores, but I’ve just checked the email and there was no mention of the bonus points this time round.

    However, we have both been receiving the 50 point bonuses during February.

  5. After the 500- will it be offering any points for future its future use? There is no advantage over say Apple Pay otherwise


  6. I had £500 points added after 5th use

  7. Julie Avenell says

    I got 200 Tesco points just for downloading the PayQwiq app. I have then got 50 points per shop for 6 shops so far. The 50 points take about 3 weeks to come through.

  8. I still have not had any bonus points from the first time, also my local Esso has signs for
    double Clubcard points on purchases and I have only had these points once,
    despite the signs still advertising Double Clubcard Points.
