Tesco is helping families get more for their money this Christmas with the return of Christmas Clubcard Exchange

Tesco is helping families get more for their money this Christmas with the return of Christmas Clubcard Exchange.  From today, 15.5m UK households will receive their Clubcard statements.  And from 1st November, members can exchange Clubcard vouchers worth £5 for £10 in tokens, giving them twice the value to spend on a huge range of festive goods.

With 12 departments taking part, more than ever before, Britain’s leading retailer is helping families make the most of Christmas by offering great savings on everything from toys and gifts, to decorations, frozen food and drinks.

Ian Crook, Online and Digital Marketing Director at Tesco, said “We know our customers want this Christmas to be really special despite tight household budgets, and we’re happy to help make that possible.  That’s why we’ve carefully selected the departments for Christmas Exchange to make sure we offer great discounts across everything families need for a very Merry Christmas.  And by combining Exchange vouchers with other in-store promotions, our customers are getting some fantastic deals this Christmas.”

The 12 departments taking part in Christmas exchange are:

  • Toys and bikes
  • Clothing
  • Finest wines and Finest Champagnes
  • Christmas trees, lights and decorations
  • Domestic appliances and personal electrical
  • Home and furniture
  • Phones and accessories
  • Books
  • Skincare, cosmetics and fragrance
  • Opticians
  • Horticulture (flowers and plants)
  • Frozen food


For the first time, we’re also reprinting unspent vouchers for 2.5 million customers to make sure they can take full advantage of Christmas Exchange.  “We really don’t want people to miss out so we’re making it even easier for members to claim previously unspent vouchers.” added Ian Crook.
