Re-claim your 'lost' clubcard vouchers

Do you have a Tesco clubcard? Maybe you don't use it all that often. If you've shopped in Tesco over the last 2 years read on, you might be in for some 'free' money - the best kind, right?!

I don't shop at Tesco for my main shop, but do pop in as it is nearby.  I never really paid much attention to the clubcard vouchers.  I've spent a few in store and exchanged a few for meals out.  I guess I assumed if I didn't spend them they'd 'roll-over'.  I'd never noticed they had an expiry date on, and that they are valid for 2 years.

You know how these things start. I think there was an email from Money Saving Expert recently (I am subscribed but I have to confess I rarely read them!). My brother must have read it, and followed the instructions and 'found' some unspent vouchers. He then told my mum who did the same, and 'found' a tidy stash. She told me, and I found over £40 worth of unspent, lonely, forgotten vouchers.

The other night I mentioned this in Twitter, I talked a few people through how to check and lo and behold, they 'found' their lost vouchers.

So now, I'm sharing with you...

First you need to go to the Tesco website.  Click on the little Clubcard icon at the top of the screen.  That should take you to this screen...




Click on the 'My Clubcard account' tab at the top.  If you've never registered online, you'll need to do that now - with your clubcard number and address details. Otherwise, log in with your email and password.

Then click the 'your vouchers' button in the centre right of the page.  Ta-dah! This will show you all the vouchers you have been sent in the last 2 years, all those you've spent and crucially, those you haven't spent will be shown as a balance.



The voucher code is shown (although I've blanked mine out above!) so you can spend them online and triple/double them up for rewards depending on the current offer. Or you can request they are re-sent and you can spend in store (if you are doing this make sure your address details are up to date).

That's it.  Easy!

If you 'find' any unspent vouchers, please pop back and leave me a comment to let me know xx

  11. Bizzare, it says I have had £39 in the last 2 years but actually we receive about that amount with each mailing. Dh does loads of work shopping with our Tesco credit card - great for our days out!

  15. Just had a nose at this! I don't tend to shop on line with them, but do shop in store. Always forget to bring my vouchers with me when I go, so they always end up lost. just checked on line and I have £43.50 to spend, so they are posting them out to me! Yay!
