Using My Tesco Clubcard Vouchers To Travel: MegaBus

Since the withdrawal of the Tesco Clubcard points boost a couple of years ago I’ve been left stranded as to what to do with my mountain of points.

I’ve over £200 worth at the time of writing and with many due to expire in the coming months I’m working out where and when to spend my points to ensure maximum value. 

Unlike dining out, one thing Helen and I do a lot is travel. Whether it be in the UK or abroad we’re always heading somewhere. Which is why I was so excited to find that Tesco Clubcard has given customers the ability to convert vouchers into credit for the UK’s leading inter-city budget coach service, Megabus.

Exchanging your Tesco Clubcard points for credit to spend on Megabus isn’t the best value for money. In fact, they’ll only double you’re money. Alternatively, some restaurants will offer up to four times the voucher in credit.

However, we we’re looking to take this journey regardless and Megabus was already the cheapest option. So, in this scenario we figured – why not…

Already in the process of booking our trip. I was really pleased to get our voucher delivered to our email instantly allowing us to continue booking our trip.

The vouchers are rounded. So while our booking came to £5.40 I could only use £2.50 to convert into a voucher for £5.00. Which did mean we had to pay £0.40. Sure, it’s not a huge deal but it’s certainly worth knowing.

Entering the code that Tesco emailed me couldn’t be made easier thanks to a dedicated button for Tesco Clubcard Token on the payment processing page on Megabus.com
 

All you have to do is enter a couple of details (I assume this is for security) and the voucher will be dedicated from your total amount. 

In conclusion, while this isn’t the best value for Tesco Clubcard points. It is a fantastic way to cut the costs of you’re domestic travel across the UK.

    I have some clubcard points that I need to use too, but I have no idea what to use them for! I think I’ll have to go through their site and pick something.

      I have three other posts scheduled to discuss this further as I figure out where best to spend them.

      The weird thing is there’s so much choice so it’s not like I am / should struggle. I’m just determined to get the best value from them / use them on something I would be buying anyway 🙂
