How to boost your Tesco Clubcard points

You can now use your Tesco Clubcard points to cut your monthly phone bill with Tesco Mobile. Here's a look at what's changing, as well as some top tips to boost your points for spending elsewhere.

Double your points and cut your phone bill

Tesco Clubcard members can now 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: just yesterday we wrote how it was voted joint-best mobile phone provider (along with Sky) 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're looking for more ways to boost your Clubcard points haul, read on as the rest of this guide is full of brilliant tips.

Earn extra points using the Pay+ app

Shoppers can earn up to 25% extra points by using Tesco's Pay+ app until 31 August as the supermarket giant looks to get more people spending through its app.

The Pay+ app allows you to earn points and pay for your shop by scanning your smartphone at the till.

Normally, shoppers can earn one point for every £1 spent at Tesco. But, if you use the app, you'll collect one extra point for every £4 you spend in Tesco; five points in total.

The 25% bonus offer has appeared on-and-off since September, so its extension until the end of August provides a major opportunity to earn points.

You can also use the app at Tesco petrol stations but there's a maximum spend of £250.

The Pay+ app is available for iOS and Android and links your Tesco account with a credit or debit card.

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 two Clubcard points 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. Read more in Tesco Bank Current Account: everything you need to know about the rates and rewards.

Use the right credit card

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

With the Premium Credit Card you'll collect two points for every £1 spent in Tesco (helping you accumulate points faster) and one point for every £4 spent outside Tesco.

All the other credit cards will earn you one Clubcard point for every £4 spent in Tesco and one point for every £8 spent outside Tesco.  

There's also Tesco's low APR card has a 5.9% rate and charges you no interest on spending in the first month.

Fuel your motor

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

Until June 2019 at Esso stations, you’ll get one point for every £3 spent on petrol and diesel at any Esso forecourt with a Tesco shop.

You’ll also collect a point for every two litres of petrol or diesel bought at other 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.

Switch mortgage

It doesn't matter if you're moving home, remortgaging or a first-time buyer, Tesco Bank has a range of mortgages on offer. 

Choose between a two, three or five-year fixed-rate mortgage (up to 95% LTV) or a two-year tracker mortgage (90% LTV). 

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

Of course, this shouldn't be the main reason you take out or switch your mortgage. Find the right home loan for you at the loveMONEY mortgage centre.

Switch your mobile contract

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.
