Supermarket makes major change to its loyalty scheme -here's how it could help you save cash | The Sun

A MAJOR supermarket has made a huge change to its loyalty scheme – and it could help you to save cash.

As part of a shake-up, customers using the Tesco Clubcard app will be able to look back at their spending habits.

Around eight million shoppers will be able to use the new Clubcard Unpacked tool, according to Tesco.

Shoppers will be able to see their three most shopped items, favourite meal deal combo, favourite aisle and most-visited store.

The new tool will also reveal how much customers saved by using the supermarket's loyalty scheme.

Tesco said it will also allows shoppers who haven't spent their points to see how they can get the most value from them.

With Tesco's Clubcard, you get one point when you scan your card or app each time you spend £1 in store and online.

You also get one point for every £2 spent on fuel.

One point equals 1p, so 150 points gets you £1.50, for example.

You'll need a minimum of 150 points to request a voucher.

Once you have enough points, you can turn them into vouchers worth the face value to spend in store at Tesco, or you can triple their worth to spend at reward partners, including restaurants, and on days out.

Members can also benefit from Clubcard prices, which are lower for those with a loyalty card than regular shoppers.

How can I see my Clubcard Unpacked?

Members can see their Clubcard Unpacked in the Tesco Grocery and Clubcard app, or through their online account.

But given there are 20 million Clubcard holders in total, not everyone will able to access it.

To be valid for Clubcard Unpacked, you must:

  • Be a Clubcard member with a valid email address
  • Have collected a minimum of 150 points in the year up to December 16, 2022
  • Have opted in to receiving marketing communications
  • Have bought one item or more on Clubcard prices in the past 24 weeks
  • Have received two Clubcard statements in the last year

The Clubcard app is free to download from the Apple app store for iPhone users, or from Google Play for Android users.

How does Tesco compare to rivals?

Tesco offers personalised coupons to its loyal customers.

Asda Rewards allows customers to collect "Asda pounds" every time they buy Star Products and complete Missions in store.

Shoppers get cash back on their shopping when they buy certain own-brand and big brand products.

Cashback is personalised, with rewards offered on the items you're most likely to buy.

Meanwhile, Sainsbury's revamped the Nectar loyalty scheme in 2019 to also offer personalised discounts.

Customers can see the deals on the website or app each week, then collect the extra points if they buy the item in store or online.

To get one Nectar point you need to spend £1 in Sainsbury’s store, or you get one Nectar point for every litre of fuel purchased in Sainsbury’s fuel stations.

Morrisons shoppers can no longer collect points through the My Morrisons loyalty scheme after the scheme was overhauled in May 2021 and points collecting scrapped.

Instead of getting points, shoppers now receive digital coupons that can be used for instant savings in stores. 

So you won't be able to earn anything on your shopping, but you'll get "personalised offers" and coupons to get money off your groceries.
