Britain’s best-value retailer Tesco will do its bit to make this Christmas the best ever by offering its customers real-life seasonal savings up to an astonishing £1.3 billion!

Spread across the 16 million Clubcard members in the UK, this means typical households could save more than £80 each. And these aren’t gimmicky deals: Tesco always offers real savings that help customers every day. Here’s how:

Price cuts and promotions worth £800 MILLION! Between now and Christmas, Tesco will be slashing prices and offering great promotions like buy-one-get-two-free deals on a wide range of groceries, and up to half price on lines such as small electricals, TVs, toys, bikes, Christmas decorations and cookware and dining. Watch out for details!

The Big Christmas Exchange: Following the hugely successful Big Exchange in August, Clubcard members will in their November statement receive vouchers that will allow them to DOUBLE the value of their Clubcard points across a wide range of products – and that’s on top of the Double Points they already enjoy. We expect Clubcard members to double some £50 million in vouchers into a whopping £100 MILLION of value!

Clubcard delivers more: The November Clubcard statement will be Tesco’s biggest ever. Thanks to Double Points we will be giving 16 million Clubcard members an astonishing £200 MILLION in vouchers to help with their Christmas shopping. Not only that, we’ll be issuing an extra December Clubcard statement that will top up the nation’s Christmas kitty by a further £70 MILLION!

Coupons for you: And there’s more: Clubcard members know they always get great value coupons in their statements in addition to the vouchers they have earned. The November and December statements will contain coupons worth up to £200 MILLION! And because it’s Clubcard, these are coupons closely tailored to your shopping preferences, not just random offers you probably don’t need.

Tesco Commercial and Marketing Director Richard Brasher said:

“We know customers are feeling the pinch right now but that’s all the more reason to make sure everyone can enjoy this special time to the full.

“We will offer the best value in the marketplace at a time when many households are looking to make savings. The £1.3 billion in real value we’re giving to customers this Christmas is a great way of saying thank-you – customers know that no-one tries harder for them all year round than Tesco.”
