It appears that Tesco, along with HP, is running a very generous promotion on HP ink cartridges – offering 1,000 Bonus Clubcard Points per cartridge.
It is very simple: if you buy an eligible HP ink cartridge sold directly by Tesco, you will earn 1000 bonus Clubcard Points on top of your ordinary earning and credit card and shopping portal bonuses.
To get this offer, simply visit Tesco Direct, search for HP ink cartridges and purchase selected items. It looks like you can only buy up to 10 cartridges but you can add the numbers up by simply buying different types of cartridges. I tried making a second order with the same items in the basket and I have no issues getting them to the payment page.
Remember, in order to ensure you earn the bonuses, make sure the cartridges are sold directly by Tesco, not their partners. You will earn zero bonus points from the partners. I think this is a legit promotion and I hope Tesco will fulfil its promise on the bonus points.
Also, Tesco caps Clubcard balance on an account to 30,000 points. Any extra earnings above that may be wiped out.
How to earn even more points on this purchase?
To earn even more points, I suggest you visit British Airway’s shopping portal, as you will earn 2 Avios per £1 spent with Tesco Direct.
Here is a screenshot of payment summary of my order. I bought 10 HP 364XL High Yield Black Original Printer Ink Cartridge and 5 extra HP 342 Tri-colour Original Ink Cartridge. They each cost £19 and £20, with a total of £290. However, if you use the code TDX-HKFY, you will get £20 off £150 or more on electrical and gaming items.
Given 600 Avios can be exchanged for every £2.50 voucher, this is a rather excellent deal.
For £270, I would earn 36,600 Avios points – and there is the possibility of reselling the cartridges too of course.
I personally think this deal is an excellent way to top up your account for any upcoming future trips. I usually redeem Avios points for last minute flights, even as late as when I arrive at the airport, so I have no issues in making the £270 back, even before I resell the cartridges via sites such as eBay.
