Tesco Clubcard Pay+

Post by Sarah » Fri Apr 29 2022 10:32am

Just received an e-mail from Tesco Bank Credit Card with an offer to receive a £25 gift card for joining Tesco Clubcard Pay+ by 12 May 2022. This offer doesn't appear on their website and the link they provided is unique/personalised, so I won't post it here, but hopefully anyone else interested in the £25 incentive might have received the same invitation e-mail.

So, what is Tesco Clubcard Pay+?

It looks like some combination of Tesco Bank account, Visa debit card and banking app.

I've not found any fee details on those pages, so presumably it's currently free!

Their branding is quite a mess; the new Tesco Clubcard Pay+ could so easily be confused with these different but similar named services that also exist...

I also rec'd this and yes it is a personalised link and they make it clear in the email that the voucher is not available unless you are invited and use the link in the email.

In their efforts to innovate and to try and compete they have made things very complicated. I will not be making use of the link.

I encountered multiple faults while getting this account up and running. It can use Open Banking for top-up payments, yet this failed both times I tried it, despite initially reporting success (somewhat alarming, but no payments were actually taken). My debit card doesn't seem to be activated properly; it isn't recognised at the Tesco checkout.

Thankfully the £25 gift just arrived, so it no longer matters if I go swiftly to the exit now.

£30 at TCB for sign-ups (although I've had to submit a claim for mine)

Slightly annoyingly the app started nagging me to activate my card several days before the card arrived

Yeah, it did that for me too. Once the card arrived, it failed to activate successfully, the app stopped asking and I can't even find an option to manually try again, so my card has never worked. I could hopefully call Tesco Bank to resolve this mess, or since they've already paid the incentive, simply close the account.
