With big changes around the corner for Tesco Clubcard vouchers in Stratford-upon-Avon, time is ticking to take advantage of the best deals.
Find out what changes are taking place and where you can use Tesco Clubcard vouchers in Stratford-upon-Avon.
What’s changing with Tesco Clubcard vouchers in Stratford-upon-Avon?
If you shop with Tesco, you’ll no doubt collect points on the supermarket’s Clubcard reward scheme. You’ll also know that spending the points instore or online is a bit of a waste. To make the most of those rewards, smart shoppers turn points into vouchers to use with Clubcard Reward Partners – getting up to four times the value of the points to spend at high-street restaurants, shops and services, and on fun family days out at zoos, theme parks and many of Britain’s top attractions.
But Tesco is cutting the very best boosts available, currently at four times the value, to three times the value. And it’s happening soon. Monday June 11 to be exact (it was meant to happen in January, but got pushed back thanks to the fab folk at Money Saving Expert). All of this means that you have three weeks to make the most of your Clubcard points.
As of Monday June 11, Tesco said it “will be offering customers 3x the value of their vouchers with over 80 Clubcard Reward Partners (rather than offering 2x value for some Reward Partners and 4x for others).”
How to beat the changes
However, when you turn your points into a rewards token, tokens are generally valid for six months upon ordering. And, with Tesco honouring any existing tokens until their expiry date, you can order your tokens now at 4x value and spend them before they expire in early winter.
So where can you make use of Tesco Clubcard vouchers in Stratford-upon-Avon?
Top 5 ways to spend Tesco Clubcard vouchers in Stratford-upon-Avon
Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm tickets
One of the 4x value boosts that will drop to 3x value on June 11, you can currently turn £2.50 in Clubcard points into a £10 spend on standard admission tickets at Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm.
With a huge range of butterflies and other creatures, the Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm in Swan’s Nest Lane will keep families entertained for a couple of hours. An adult ticket costs £7.25, children aged 3-16 £6.25 (under 3s free) – so you could get entry for an adult and two older children when you exchange £5 in Tesco Clubcard points before June 11.
Shakespeare Birthplace Trust tickets
Another attraction currently available at 4x value, you can currently exchange £2.50 in Tesco Clubcard points to get a £10 spend on Shakespeare Birthplace Trust standard admission tickets (not 12-month Full Story tickets).
While this is a great offer if you’re only on a short Stratford-upon-Avon trip, or you only plan to visit a couple of the Shakespeare Family Homes (Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Shakespeare’s New Place, Hall’s Croft and Mary Arden’s Farm), you should read the Stratfordblog post on the top 5 reasons to buy a Shakespeare Family Homes annual pass and decide which deal works best for you.
The MAD Museum tickets
Yet another 4x value boost that will drop to 3x value on June 11, you can currently exchange £2.50 in Tesco Clubcard points for a £10 spend on standard tickets to Henley Street’s MAD Museum.
This brilliant, family-friendly attraction has a huge interactive collection of kinetic art and automata. Standard admission costs £7.80 for adults and £5.20 for children aged 6-16 (5 years and under go free).
Eating out using Tesco Clubcard vouchers in Stratford-upon-Avon
While the Clubcard scheme doesn’t have the reach to work with independent restaurants and cafes, something we aim to champion here in Stratford-upon-Avon, you can currently turn 50p of Clubcard points into a £2 spend at Pizza Express in Ely Street, Café Rouge in Sheep Street, and – though they don’t show on the map view when you search for nearby offers on Tesco’s Clubcard website – Bella Italia in Wood Street and Ask Italian in Bell Court. All currently available at 4x value.
That’s £40 (or a pleasant dinner for two) for just £10 in Tesco points. Be quick – the value drops soon, so exchange your vouchers now and use them in the next six months to get the best value. Tokens are generally for food only, not drinks, and to be used against the main menu (not set lunch menus, for example). The terms and conditions are there to see before you exchange your points for tokens.
Book Stratford-upon-Avon accommodation using Clubcard vouchers
There will be no change in the 3x points-tokens value with the local hotels that currently participate as Tesco Clubcard Reward Partners (Best Western Grosvenor, Macdonald Swan’s Nest and Macdonald Alveston Manor).
There is, however, a small change if you want to exchange your points vouchers for tokens to spend with Hoseasons (£15 in points currently gets you £50 in tokens) or Cottages 4 you (now known as Cottages.com; £30 in points currently gets you £100 in tokens), which both feature holiday properties in Stratford-upon-Avon. Both will move in line with the 3x value system being applied by Tesco on Monday June 11.
There are various terms and conditions attached to accommodation vouchers, so check carefully before converting your Tesco Clubcard points.
