Tesco shoppers warning as £17million worth of Clubcard vouchers due to expire today
Vouchers issued in May 2020 will expire at the end of today
Tesco shoppers are being warned that £17million worth of Clubcard vouchers are due to expire at the end of the today.
Clubcard holders are given vouchers four times a year, with those deals expiring after two years.
The vouchers that will expire at the end of the today are those issued in May 2020.
Alessandra Bellini, Tesco chief customer officer, said: “We know it’s tough right now, which is why we want to show customers all the ways we can help them spend less.“
But Money Saving Expert’s Martin Lewis has previously provided worried customers with a way to extend their expiring Tesco vouchers, but you’ll have to be quick.
Mr Lewis 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.”
