Urgent warning for 3million Tesco shoppers who have just weeks left to use £15million worth of points | The Sun

MILLIONS of Tesco shoppers have weeks left to use up their Clubcard points or risk losing them for good.

The supermarket chain has warned that there are more than £15million worth of Clubcard points due to expire after May 31.

The points, which were first issued in May 2021, have to be redeemed within two years.

Shoppers can use Clubcard vouchers in-store and online to save money on their Tesco shop. 

If you decide to use your vouchers for your Tesco shop, every 150 points can be exchanged to the value of £1.50.

Your vouchers can also be used to cut the cost of car fuel and can even be tripled in value to spend at over 100 reward partners including Pizza Express and Zizzi.

You can find out how many Clubcard points you have in the app. Just head to your account and select statements.

How does the Tesco Clubcard scheme work?

Tesco's Clubcard was launched in 1995, allowing shoppers to earn points as they shop which can then be turned into vouchers for money off food or other partner schemes. 

Each time you spend £1 in-store and online, you get one point when you scan your card or app.

You also get one point for every £2 spent on fuel.

One point equals 1p, so 150 points gets you £1.50, for example.

You'll need a minimum of 150 points to request a voucher.

Once you have enough points, you can turn them into vouchers worth the face value to spend in-store at Tesco, or you can triple their worth to spend at reward partners, including restaurants, and on days out.

Clubcard holders also get cheaper prices on over 8,000 items thanks to Clubcard Prices.

Clubcard prices save the average member £351 their annual shop, according to Tesco.

But Tesco is making some major changes to its Clubcard scheme later this summer.

How is Tesco's Clubcard changing this year?

From June 14, Clubcard points spent with reward partners will be worth less.

Customers can currently exchange and triple the value of these vouchers at various reward partners including Pizza Express and Zizzi.

But from June 14, Clubcard vouchers will only be worth double their value if exchanged at any of Tesco's 100 reward partners.

The move will mean that their value won't go as far as it used to on things like family days out at Alton Towers Resort, meals at PizzaExpress, sunny getaways with Hotels.com and much more.

Customers wishing to avoid the points devaluation for as long as possible can do so by ordering partner codes before June 14.

These codes will still be worth the current rate and shoppers will have 12 months from their issue to redeem them.

Drivers using Clubcards can also currently get one point for every £2 of fuel they buy.

But fom June 14, you will collect one point for every two litres instead.

The current average cost of a litre of unleaded in the UK was 145.69p as of May 5, according to the RAC, so two litres cost almost £2.91.

That means the majority of people will be getting less Clubcard value from buying fuel.

The change excludes Esso filling stations with a Tesco Express store.

For Tesco Bank customers, the number of points you collect will also depend on whether you use your card to collect points for fuel, to pay for fuel, or both.
