Guys, tell me you’ve got Tesco’s Pay+ app already? No? First off, it hurts my feelings you’re not reading all my blog posts ;), but most importantly if you shop at Tesco, you need to get this free app. It’s a game changer.
Even better, right now Tesco is offering 1 extra Clubcard point for every £4 you spend when using the Tesco Pay+ app throughout September till 14th January 2018. Extra point this good are few and far between, so it’s so worth getting the free app now.
What is the Tesco Pay+ app?
The app is available for both Android and iOS smartphones, and once you’ve set it up, you can pay for your Tesco shopping with just your phone. It’s super quick, and unlike a contactless card which limits you to a £30 spend, you can pay for goods up to £250.
At the till, whether manned or self-service, the phone will display a barcode which is scanned for the payment to be made.
It’s perfect for people like me who first off, manage to forget their wallet constantly, and never remember to bring along my Clubcard. What’s useful is that your Clubcard is automatically added to the app when you log in with your Tesco details, meaning one quick swipe means you’ve paid and your point have been added to the account.
What you need to do
- Download the Tesco Pay+ app to your apple or android phone (it’s free)
- Enter all your details (your Clubcard will be automatically added)
- When in a Tesco store or at one of its petrol stations (at the kiosk, not the at the pump), you pay by scanning a barcode generated by the app. This automatically charges your linked card and credits your Clubcard account.
It’s one of those little things that simplifies life. No more digging about in your bag, no more remembering your PIN number (I’m always forgetting – don’t judge!) and it takes a few seconds.
What can you do with the extra Clubcard points?
Generally, when you swipe your Clubcard at Tesco, you get one point per pound spent. So with this offer, you’re getting an extra 25% of Clubcard points.
When you earn over 150 points in a three-month period, Tesco sends your points as Clubcard Vouchers to use in-store or online. Now, many people spend these vouchers on their shopping. Which is fine, but I like to be a little smarter than that.
So, as 500 points equal a fiver (and it will be quicker to reach with the Pay+ app, you can trade it for double, triple or even quadruple the value if you boost the points via Tesco’s partners.
For example, if you’re an Uber user like I am, you can get £1.50 worth of travel with 50p worth of points. Another good one is £2.50 worth of Clubcard points gets you a £10 spend at Prezzo.
Just got onto the Clubcard site, click on the ‘partners’ tab and take a look at the offers.
If you shop at Tesco – you need to download the app (especially if you’re doing a shop soon thanks to the offer). It’s easier, and you get more points for your money.
