Millions of Tesco shoppers are likely to see the value of their Clubcard points slashed from next month – but you can beat the cuts by acting now.
Under the popular boost scheme, customers have been able to get four times the value of vouchers with partner firms like Pizza Express, Zizzi, Cafe Rouge and event family destinations such as London Zoo.
But from June 11, this will change to three times.
Essentially, it means that families could get £10 to spend at certain restaurants and days out with a £2.50 Clubcard voucher – but from next month they will be worth a maximum of £7.50.
But probably causing a bigger impact will be the fact that Britain’s biggest supermarket is also severing ties with 57 of its Clubcard partners including Halfords, HMS Belfast, Cutty Sark and Leger Travel.
Tesco had initially planned to roll out the changes in January but it pushed back the changeover until June, following a backlash from customers.
The changes have also angered Martin Lewis, founder of MoneySavingExpert.com, who urged the supermarket to rethink the shake-up.
Fortunately, you can beat the cuts if you act right now.
Tesco says its rewards tokens are valid for six months “unless otherwise stated,” so by swapping your Clubcard vouchers for rewards token now you’ll be able to boost their value.
This is great if you’re planning a big family day out, a birthday or a meal over a summer.
