Tesco has been slowly but surely revamping its Clubcard scheme over recent months. The supermarket giant has been heavily promoting its PayQwiq app and seems to have stopped offering bonus points for gift card purchases.
Today they announced some much more interesting changes. Excitingly, this includes partnerships with Uber & Hotels.com as well as upgrades in their contactless technology.
What You Need to Know:
- Uber & Hotels.com added as a reward partner on the Boost scheme.
- You can swap your Clubcard vouchers for 3x the value with either of these two partners.
- These partners have been added to the Clubcard site today.
- The minimum value of the vouchers you can use on the Boost scheme has decreased.
- For many Boost partners, the minimum value voucher you could exchange was £2.50, this has dropped to 50p for many partners, including Uber.
- However, the minimum value for Hotels.com is £5.
- The smartphone app is being revamped.
- You can apply for a Clubcard instantly via the app.
- Even better, you can access your Clubcard vouchers on the app – no more paper vouchers necessary.
- New look contactless Clubcards/key fobs are being sent out over the next week or so.
- Don’t fret, your current ones will continue to work.
Unfortunately, there is no news yet as to if/when the Tesco Clubcard credit card will become contactless.
Tesco Clubcard Changes Bottom Line:
There’s always a creeping feeling of trepidation when a new loyalty scheme change is announced these days. Fortunately, I view these changes as pretty positive. Obviously, Uber has its fierce critics and I wouldn’t be surprised if this partnership leads to some people pushing for a Tesco boycott.
On the other hand, I’m a fan of contactless technology and a regular user of Uber and Hotels.com. I haven’t had chance to check the small print yet, but if there isn’t anything too prohibitive involved when redeeming vouchers at 3x face value for Uber and Hotels.com, I can definitely see myself taking advantage, and moving away a bit from converting Clubcard Points into Avios.
