How to spend even less on your Tesco shop

Tesco is bringing back its popular Clubcard Prices promotion that gives Clubcard holders big discounts on selected products during September.

It will officially launch on Monday (9 September) and will run until 2 October with the aim of getting more people to sign up for its Clubcard.

There are currently around 19 million Clubcard members, who will gain access to over 400 additional money-saving deals this month, ranging from staples like coffee to big ticket items like TVs. 

There will be new deals introduced throughout the month, but below is a selection of offers that are available from today.

While not everyone is a fan of the promotion, it's undoubtedly going to prove popular with cardholders – and potentially encourage a few more shoppers to hand over the personal details in order to get one.

Don’t forget to tap or scan your card or Clubcard app at the till to get the special prices. Online customers should get their discounts automatically.

Of course, getting discounted prices is just one advantage of the Clubcard.

Regular Tesco shoppers can use it to rack up loyalty points that can't be spent on anything from discounts on their next shop to days out with the family.

So let's look at some of the ways you can rack up more Tesco Clubcard points without having to buy things you didn't need anyway.

Please note the rest of this article is an evergreen guide to boosting Tesco points. Regular readers will likely be familiar with the tips as it has featured in the newsletter before.

Pay with the right credit card

Tesco Clubcard credit cards are a great way to earn extra Clubcard points wherever you shop.

With most Tesco credit cards, will earn you one Clubcard point for every £4 spent in Tesco and one point for every £8 spent outside Tesco.  

Obviously, make sure you clear your debt in full each month or you'll rack up far more costly interest charges.

Bank with Tesco

The Tesco Bank Current Account allows you to earn points on almost everything you buy with your debit card.

You can currently collect one Clubcard point for every £1 you spend in Tesco and one point for every £8 you spend everywhere else.

Clubcard points aren’t the only perk of the Tesco Bank Current Account.

You can also earn 1% on balances up to £3,000, but you must pay in at least £750 every month and have at least three Direct Debits.

Double your points and cut your phone bill

Tesco Clubcard members can use their points to slash their Tesco Mobile phone bill.

If you have 200 Clubcard points, you can double its voucher value to use with Tesco Mobile from £2 to £4. 

If you aren't a Tesco Mobile customer, it might be worth considering switching: we recently wrote how it was voted best mobile phone provider in terms of lowest customer complaints. 

Below is a handy graph showing the savings you can enjoy (if you spend enough every month).

If you sign up with Tesco Mobile, you can collect one Clubcard point for every £1 you spend on topping up in-store, online or over the phone or for what you rack up on your pay monthly bill.

Fuel your motor

You can collect one Clubcard point for every £2 spent on Tesco Unleaded, Tesco Diesel and Tesco Momentum at selected forecourts.

You can collect a point for every £3 spent on petrol or diesel bought at participating Esso Service Stations and a point for every £1 spent on shop products (some exclusions apply) or car washes at participating Esso service stations.

Have a mortgage with Tesco Bank?

Tesco Bank no longer accepts mortgage applications and recently sold its mortgage business to Halifax, which is part of Lloyds Banking Group.

But if your mortgage is managed by Tesco, you can continue to collect Clubcard points. 

You'll automatically get one point for every £4 you pay on your monthly mortgage payments, including overpayments.

According to reports, Tesco is also giving mortgage customer a one-off ‘gift’ of Clubcard point depending on the type of mortgage they have.
