TESCO shoppers have just hours left to use their Clubcard vouchers before they expire for good.

The supermarket chain said that there were more than £15million worth of Clubcard points due to expire after May 31 earlier this month.

The points, which were first issued in May 2021, have to be redeemed within two years.

Shoppers can use Clubcard vouchers in-store and online to save money on their Tesco shop. 

If you decide to use your vouchers for your Tesco shop, every 150 points can be exchanged to the value of £1.50.

Your vouchers can also be used to cut the cost of car fuel and can even be tripled in value to spend at over 100 reward partners including Pizza Express and Zizzi.

You can also swap vouchers for money off your Tesco mobile bill.

You can find out how many Clubcard points you have in the app. Just head to your account and select statements.

But if you’re struggling to decide what to spend your points on, Martin Lewis has a handy trick to extend and triple the points before they expire at midnight.

Martin recently explained on Good Morning Britain how to do this.

He said: “Go online and check, or on the app, and check whether you have any of these vouchers, it will tell you if you have any unused vouchers.

“It’s worth noting that currently you can trade in a £5 voucher for three times the value – £15 worth – on things like Pizza Express or Legoland.

“From June 14 they’re going to be double, but if you trade them in now, it’s valid for a year.”

But, in order to extend them to triple their value you’ll need to follow Martin’s handy trick.

Just make a small purchase on the Tesco Clubcard Rewards website and you’ll get the remaining points credited back to your account.

Martin explained: “Say you’ve got a £10 voucher, you go online, you login, you spend say 50p of your £10, so you’ve now got £1.50 in restaurant vouchers – because 50p becomes £1.50.

“For the rest of the £9.50, they re-issue it and it lasts another two years.

“So if you spend just a little bit of the voucher, the rest of it is re-issued and it lasts another two years.”

You won’t get this if you buy something in-store or online using the voucher though – it’s only if you’re using them on rewards.

You can find out how many Clubcard points you have in the app. Just head to your account and select statements.

The app is available for both iPhone and Android users.

You can log in to the Tesco Clubcard website, which shows your voucher history, including points that haven’t been spent yet.

How does the Tesco Clubcard scheme work?

Tesco’s Clubcard was launched in 1995, allowing shoppers to earn points as they shop which can then be turned into vouchers for money off food or other partner schemes. 

Each time you spend £1 in store and online, you get one point when you scan your card or app.

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.
