LONDON, November 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Tesco Bank's Clubcard Credit Card is set to reward customers once again this Christmas. Clubcard Credit Card customers can collect Clubcard points on all of their spending - receiving one point for every £4 spent on their card.
Tesco is helping Clubcard customers get more for their money with the return of Christmas Clubcard Exchange. Members can exchange Clubcard vouchers and get double the value to spend on a huge range of festive goods in store and online. With 12 departments taking part, there are thousands of products to choose from, including toys and bikes, clothing, beauty products, Finest wine and Finest champagne and Christmas decorations. Customers have until the 5th December to exchange their vouchers and until the 13th December to redeem their tokens. For more details visit: http://www.tesco.com/exchange.
Using the Clubcard Credit Card helps customer's collect even more points and is a great way for them to manage their everyday spending or to put towards bigger treats for those planning holidays over the festive season.
The Tesco Clubcard Credit Card offers customers two choices to help them manage their money:
- 0% interest on purchases for 16 months; or
- 0% interest on balance transfers for 22 months, with a competitive fee of 2.9%.
