Redeeming Options

Post by planteria » Sat Mar 09, 2019 9:18 am

i'm surprised we don't have options to Redeem in Clubcard points, Nectar points or by other methods. fwiw cash is fine by me, but it'd be interesting to have other, enhanced options, as are offered elsewhere. and perhaps that would appeal to some people far more.

This has been mooted/suggested/raised several times before. A non starter until/unless we are able to reach a much wider market.

why is it? would Tesco offer an incentive? -it could be mutually beneficial for members and also the site for members to take their cash in clubcard points instead. have we asked them?

Tesco have been retreating on Clubcard points for some time now. The Tesco redemption option at TCB is long gone.

Elsewhere, the enhanced redemptions largely rely on being able to buy giftcards at a discount. It probably only makes sense if there is an API that would allow redemptions in this way to be automated.

not that long gone.. i used it only a few weeks ago. and yes, giftcards at a discount would nail it perfectly.

Tesco e-gift cards are still available via TopCat.. just bagged £40odd.
the only restriction is that you can't include cb generated via icelolly.

Converting TCB to Clubcard points (which is what you mentioned in your first post) was an option up until 2-3 years ago. There is still an option to redeem for Tesco giftcards.

which is fine. the effect is the same for those shopping at Tesco, and there is an uplift from the cash value.
