Martin Lewis’ website shares hack that could extend Tesco Clubcard vouchersMay 23, 2022
Millions of Tesco Clubcard vouchers will be expiring this year – meaning Brits could be losing out on a lot of money.
Clubcard vouchers expire after two years – and the supermarket estimates £17million of them will run out on May 31.
Luckily, there's a tip on how to extend the vouchers as reported by The Mirror.
MoneySavingExpert, a website founded by consumer expert Martin Lewis, has published a way to give these a new lease of life .
The site said: "While Clubcard vouchers are valid for two years, if yours are expiring but you don't want to use them yet, there's a crafty way you can extend their expiry date for another two years but you must do so before 11:59pm on May 31."
To do this, you have to buy something using your points on the Tesco Clubcard Rewards site.
Doing this means you get any remaining points paid back to your account.
Tesco Clubcard Rewards allows you to swap points for treats like restaurant meals or day trips.
So if you have a £20 voucher that is expiring, and spend £1 on a reward, you will get the remaining £19.50 paid back to you with a fresh two-year expiry.
You can then use that money to get money off your shopping or fuel.
However, you will need to do this for every expiring voucher.
Last week The Daily Star reported that Tesco is shaking up its Clubcard scheme with up to a third off prices – and deals on healthy and eco-friendly products.
From May, automatic statements and vouchers will stop arriving through letterboxes anywhere in the country.
Thish could be frustrating for those who rely on them to save cash – but, luckily, you will be sent paper copies if you specifically request them from the supermarket.
For those happy to make the change, any accumulated points will be moved over into email vouchers with a barcode for customers to scan at the checkout. You can do this on your smart phone.
Tesco revealed it will make the change for those who shop online – and they will receive an email letting them know about the tweak.
Not all customers will be affected, however, so keep an eye on your inbox to check if you will be.
If you have received an email and want to keep receiving your quarterly Clubcard statement and vouchers by post, you'll need to actively opt back in.
