Advantages: Double points, convert to deals
Disadvantages: Statements in the post only once a quarter
I have only recently started taking full advantage of my Tesco Clubcard and I am just starting to reap the rewards! I have had my clubcard for years but I never really understood how it all worked and therefore always forgot to use it whenever I shopped in our local Tesco Express.
At the moment Tesco have a promotion of double clubcard points. This means you receive 2 points for every £1 spent as opposed to the usual one point per pound. Often, Tesco will have Clubcard promotions where you can gain an extra 50, 100 or 200 points for buying a certain product which helps dramatically boost your total.
To use your clubcard just hand it to the staff on the tills when you pay for your shopping, or if you shop online, enter you clubcard details onto your profile and these will be saved for all purchases that you make online.
100 points will get you £1 to spend in store, but you can also use your points for various rewards such as eating out, days out, cinema tickets, theme parks, theatre tickets etc. When you convert your vouchers to use in 'deals' they quadrouple the value, for example this means that £10 worth of Tesco vouchers would be worth £40 in restaurant vouchers.
In my opinion the Tesco Deals is a better way of gaining your rewards as your points are worth 4 times what they are worth in cash value. Some people even sell theirs on eBay making close to four times the actual face value but please not some deals have the persons name on the voucher and therefore cannot be used by anyone else.
The vouchers are posted to you once a quarter and you can either take them along with you on the next trip to the store, enter the code online to get them discounted off your shopping or convert them into deals online.
Recently I had saved up £7.50 in vouchers so I headed on over to the website to see what deal I could cash them in for. I chose restaurant vouchers for Bella Italia and as they are worth 4 x, I received £30 of vouchers in the post within a week.

I think this is a really good rewards scheme if you do some or all of your shopping in Tesco.
5 stars from me!
Summary: Worth collecting for the deals
