Shoppers are being warned that some major new changes to the Tesco Clubcard scheme are officially taking effect from today.
Loyalty schemes are pretty much commonplace in UK supermarkets nowadays, with the Tesco Clubcard being by far one of the most popular – but today, after weeks of reminders, the supermarket has introduced a significant new change that’s set to affect the more than 20 million people signed-up nationwide.
The supermarket chain already closed its separate Tesco Pay+ app on Monday 27 February, but from today (18 April), shoppers will no longer be able to use their Clubcard app and will need to download the new ‘Tesco Grocery and Clubcard’ app to continue earning points.
So how does it work then? And what exactly is changing?
Well, the new app is essentially replacing the two older apps, and looks set to combine the features of both into one place to make it easier for shoppers to use.
Appearing to work in relatively the same way as the old Clubcard app, the new ‘Tesco Grocery and Clubcard’ allows shoppers to pay, view their points balance, spend Clubcard vouchers, order deliveries and check stock in stores all in one, according to Tesco.
Customers can also use their physical Clubcard to earn points.
A Tesco spokesperson told consumer group Which? that the new app will be “the easiest way” to get the most out of what Clubcard has to offer.
“With the combined power of Clubcard Prices, coupons, vouchers, alongside our reward partner codes, Clubcard is the best way to get value at Tesco, and our Grocery and Clubcard app is the easiest way to make the most of all your Clubcard has to offer,” the spokesperson explained.
They also crucially added that shoppers won’t lose any points, vouchers, or coupons during the switchover, as these will still be available in the new app or via your online account.
This isn’t the only Clubcard change Tesco shoppers need to be aware of in the coming months either.
The supermarket has already announced that, from 14 June, it will reduce the value of Clubcard vouchers – which customers can currently exchange and triple their value to save more, or use with rewards partners such as Zizzi and Pizza Express.
But when the new change comes into force, customers only can double the value when they redeem at any of Tesco’s 100 rewards partners.
You can get half-price fish and chips for just £3.49 at all Morrisons cafes today
Morrisons is giving hungry customers the chance to tuck into a hearty helping of fish and chips at half the price for just one day only today.
And it’s all to suitably celebrate National Fish and Chip Day.
A popular annual event in the British foodie calendar, National Fish and Chip Day falls on Friday 2 June this year, and to mark the special occasion, Morrisons has slashed the price of its usual chippy offering at hundreds of its in-store cafes nationwide.
The major supermarket has more than 400 cafes inside stores right across the UK, and the half-price food offer is believed to be available at all of them.
Adults can enjoy Fish, Chips and Peas for just £3.49, while the children‘s Mini Fish, Chips and Peas meal has also been reduced to £2.74.
Not a bad bargain at all, right?
The only catch is though, you’ll need to be signed-up to the supermarket‘s loyalty scheme and scan your Morrisons More card at the cafe checkout if you want to claim the half price offer.
Morrisons’ half-price fish and chips offer also comes after it relaunched its popular ‘Ask for Henry’ initiative towards the end of April after a successful run when it was first introduced amid the rising cost of living crisis in 2022.
‘Ask for Henry’ saw the retailer team up with Heinz for scheme that’s aimed at helping those struggling with their finances get themselves a free hot meal.
