NOW TV is partnering with Tesco in a deal that will allow Clubcard holders to redeem their points for triple value with the video streaming provider.
That means £5 of Tesco Clubcard points – which are accumulated with everyday purchases in the chain’s stores, petrol stations, and online – can be converted into £15 credit used toward a NOW TV subscription. The only catch is that the credit can only be used for TV and video streaming products and not NOW TV’s broadband and phone deals.
But with the partnership, you can easily wipe pounds off your entertainment costs each month, just with the shopping you’re doing anyway.
One Clubcard point is accumulated for every pound spent at Tesco stores and translates into 1p of value – or 3p, if they’re used for NOW TV. With fuel spending, you collect 1 point per £2 spent.
With the average family’s weekly food shop coming in at £60.60, you can earn £2.62 worth of Clubcard points a month, which can then be redeemed for £7.86 off your NOW TV subscription. With the extra credit, you can also plump for new NOW TV passes which start at £4 extra a month and give you access to TV channels, film premieres, live sports, or children’s programmes.
Under the arrangement, NOW TV will add a new “Credit Wallet” to its subscribers’ account pages. Customers will be able to add credit to these wallets from their Tesco Clubcard accounts and then spend that credit on NOW TV’s streaming products or passes.
Unused credit will stay in customers’ accounts for up to three years and can be used toward monthly auto-renewals.
NOW TV has said the partnership is in its earliest stages and they don’t have an official launch date yet.
In the meantime, you can redeem Clubcard vouchers with existing reward partners, high street restaurants, attractions, and magazine subscriptions.
