Approval for any credit card will depend on your status. The representative APRs shown represent the interest rate offered to most successful applicants. Depending on your personal circumstances the APR you're offered may be higher, or you may not be offered credit at all. Fees and rates are subject to change without notice. It's always wise to check the terms of any deal before you borrow.
Tesco Bank offers a range of rewards credit cards that allow you to collect additional Clubcard points along with your regular Tesco Clubcard. You can redeem these point on your next shop or you can spend them on holidays, meals out, leisure attractions and more with its partners.
Tesco Bank credit card points and regular Clubcard points
Your Tesco Bank credit card is considered your Clubcard, so there’s no need to swipe both at the till.
With most Tesco Bank credit cards, you receive 1 point per £4 spent in a Tesco store or online, in addition to the standard Clubcard rewards system of 1 point for every £1 spent. So for every £4 spent in Tesco, you could receive a total of 5 points. With this earn rate, to obtain 150 points (£1.50 voucher), you would need to spend £120 with Tesco.
Alternatively, if you use your credit card for purchases elsewhere, you will receive 1 point per £8 spent.
Tesco Bank offers Premium, World, Classic and Platinum credit cards with higher earn rates, such as 1 point per £1 or £2 spent. However, these are unavailable to new customers and may only be offered to you once you have banked with Tesco for some time and meet other criteria.
How do you redeem Tesco Clubcard points?
Every three months, your points automatically get turned into vouchers that you can spend at tesco.com, in store, on Tesco fuel or with one of the Clubcard Reward Partners. They will usually be sent to you in February, May, August and November.
Most of the reward partners accept Clubcard vouchers, which you can change into partner vouchers. This includes Virgin Atlantic Flying Clubcard miles, which can be redeemed using your Tesco Clubcard points. You could previously also convert your points to Avios air miles, but this scheme ended in early 2021.
Tesco Clubcard vouchers usually have an expiry date of two years. However, if you exchange your Clubcard vouchers to partner vouchers, these are usually only valid for a much shorter period.
Tesco Clubcard Plus
In October 2019, Tesco launched Clubcard Plus, a subscription-based scheme that offers additional Tesco benefits. Clubcard Plus works from the Tesco app and costs £7.99 a month. You’ll still earn your regular Clubcard points, but you’ll also get:
- 10% off 2 shops a month. Up to a maximum of £200 each (£40 discount a month). It only applies to in-store shops, not online.
- 10% off on all Tesco brands. All the time. There is no maximum spend limit, but again, you need to do your shopping in-store.
- Double your mobile data on Tesco Mobile. So for example, if you’re on a 4gb monthly deal with Tesco Mobile, you’ll get 8gb instead.
These benefits can be worth way more than your monthly subscription, but only if you use them constantly. Tesco says you can unsubscribe anytime, so you can also give it a go for a couple of months and then decide if it’s worth keeping it up.
Just be careful because you’ll only make the most of it if you do two big shoppings a month – you won’t get good value for money if you shop regularly but always spend small amounts.
Tesco Clubcard Plus credit card
Tesco also has a Clubcard Plus credit card. It’s an exclusive deal for Clubcard Plus subscribers and has 0% interest on purchases for up to 24 months after opening the account. Unlike the rest of Tesco’s credit cards, it doesn’t charge any foreign transaction fees.
