Martin Lewis has revealed how shoppers can extend their expiring Tesco vouchers.

Tesco Clubcard holders are handed vouchers four times a year, with those deals expiring after two years.

And the supermarket has said that £17million worth of vouchers are due to expire at the end of May, sparking worry among customers.

But now, Mr Lewis’ Money Saving Expert website has explained how people can extend their deals, with the help of a quick trick.

Money Saving Expert 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.

“Make a small purchase on the Tesco Clubcard Rewards site (not in store or on other Tesco websites) and the remaining balance is credited back to your Clubcard account as points.

“They'll then be reissued as new vouchers (with an expiry date up to two years in the future) when you next get a batch. So if you spend 50p using a £10 Clubcard voucher, you'll get £9.50 back as new vouchers.

“There's no minimum spend, but the aim's to shell out as little as possible. A good option might be a 50p restaurant voucher (worth £1.50 at your chosen restaurant).

“Bear in mind you'll need to do this for each individual voucher though, so weigh up if it's actually worth it for smaller denominations.

“For example, if you've a £10 voucher it's probably worth it – if you've got a handful of £1 vouchers, maybe less so.”
