Tesco’s upcoming subscription service, Tesco Clubcard Plus, will go live in early November, and it’ll bring with it a tidy selection of perks. The biggest of these is that it will get you a 10% discount on your shopping − twice every month.
By signing up to Clubcard Plus, you’ll also unlock access to a couple more things, including additional data if you’re on Tesco Mobile. Read on for everything you need to know about Tesco Clubcard Plus, including its price, launch date and sign-up instructions.
How much does Tesco Clubcard Plus cost?
Clubcard Plus costs £7.99 per month, which adds up to £95.88 over the course of a year.
How to sign up to Tesco Clubcard Plus
You’ll be able to subscribe to Clubcard Plus from Friday, November 8.
Existing Clubcard users can expect an email prompting them to upgrade to Clubcard Plus around launch day. But you can also sign up here.
If you don’t already have a Clubcard, you can order one here, and then sign up to Clubcard Plus.
Tesco says you’ll be able to cancel your Clubcard Plus subscription anytime.
Will you receive a new physical Clubcard?
No. Instead, Tesco Clubcard Plus will live inside the existing Tesco Clubcard app, which you can download by clicking the following links:
How to get 10% off your Tesco shop with Clubcard Plus
Probably the biggest reason to sign up for Tesco Clubcard Plus is the 10% discount you’ll be able to get off two shops per month.
The discount applies to shopping trips totalling up to £200 but no more than that, which essentially also means that the discount is capped to £20 per shop.
That discount will of course come in handy for anyone, but Clubcard Plus probably makes more sense for families.
You can earn that £7.99 per month subscription fee back by doing one £80 shop each month. If you’re the kind of person who tends to nip into a supermarket for a couple of items on the journey home from work, it might be time to change your shopping habits.
However, only in-store shoppers can take advantage of the 10% discount. There’s a chance that online shoppers will be included at some point in the future, but there’s no guarantee of this.
To get your 10% discount, you’ll have to fire up the Tesco Clubcard app and scan a barcode at the checkout. If you forget your phone or it runs out of battery mid-shop, you won’t be able to claim your discount.
Also, the 10% discounts won’t roll over to the following month if you forget to cash one or both of them in.
Unfortunately, a multitude of products and services aren’t eligible for the 10% discount. These are the following:
- Fuel and motoring related products
- Lottery tickets
- Gift vouchers and gift cards
- Savings stamps and postage stamps
- Tobacco products and accessories
- Infant baby formula milk
- Prescription medicines
- Newspapers and magazines
- In-store third-party concession products
- Bureau de change
- Carrier bag charges
- In-store café or coffee shop
- Alcoholic drinks subject to 25% discount off 6 bottles, or to the extent the discount would reduce the product value below the Minimum Unit Price
- Products which are subject to the separate Always On Discount
Tesco Clubcard Plus subscribers will, however, get 10% of Tesco brands (F&F, Fred & Flo, Go Cook, Fox & Ivy, Tesco Pet, Carousel) all the time.
Tesco Mobile customers get double data
If you’re on Tesco Mobile, there’s another reason to sign up. If you subscribe to Tesco Clubcard Plus and you’re on a pay monthly Tesco Mobile contract, you’ll start receiving twice as much mobile data every month.
If you don’t really need double data, it can be gifted to another Tesco Mobile user.
Tesco Bank credit card
In the New Year, Tesco will roll out another Clubcard Plus perk.
In 2020, Clubcard Plus subscribers aged 18 and over will be able to apply for a Tesco Bank credit card, the headline feature of which is no foreign exchange fees when you use it abroad. We expect more details about the perk to emerge next year.
