Should you convert Tesco Clubcard points into Alton Towers theme park tickets?

Is it worth converting your Tesco Clubcard points into Alton Towers theme park tickets? And how do you do it? There is no doubt that it is a great place to visit, but today I want to look at whether Alton Towers in Staffordshire 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 Alton Towers tickets

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

You will need £13 of Clubcard points for a ticket for either an adult or a child (children under 3 are free). Your ticket is emailed to you directly to print at home.

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

Is Alton Towers a good way to spend your Clubcard points?

On the face of it, Yes.

An Alton Towers ticket on the door is now a shocking £55! If you book online 1-4 days in advance that comes down to £35, 5 days in advance the ticket costs £27.50.

(However, booking in advance for cash commits you to a particular day whatever the weather. A Clubcard ticket is flexible as long as you use it within six months.)

On that basis, you are getting (£55 / £13 of Tesco vouchers) 4.2 x face value. This is very good.

However, there are often many special offers available on Alton Towers tickets.

Some brands of Kellogg’s cereal, for example, currently have a ‘buy a child ticket and get a free adult ticket’ coupon printed on them. Alton Towers is included. This would halve your entry cost for paying cash if 2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 1 child go.

Your Clubcard vouchers are not as good a deal if you can get one of these vouchers – you would be getting 2.0 x face value if you redeemed for Alton Towers tickets. This still isn’t too bad but you should also consider redeeming for one of the other high value Clubcard point redemptions on our list.

How do I book my Alton Towers tickets via Clubcard?
