Tesco Loyalty Program

Tesco is one of the first retailers to launch a club card for shopping in supermarkets. Back in 1993, the first club cards were successfully tested. The first version of Tesco's loyalty program simply encouraged customers, but did not collect personal data. However, already in 1994 the scheme was revised and became one of the first systems to process personal data of customers. Today, the club card system is in operation in the United Kingdom and several European countries. As of 2017, the Tesco Buyers Club has over 17 million users in the United Kingdom alone.





Tesco Bank Credit Card. Customers can order Tesco Credit Card.


Tesco Credit Card is a convenient bank credit form of payment for purchases from Tesco Bank.

To activate a Tesco Bank credit card, you need to download the Tesco Mobile Bank mobile application and fill in the fields provided. This is a simple process. You can activate your card by calling 0345 300 4278* (Minicom 0345 671 0676*). You will need to provide a 16-digit credit card number.

  1. Hi, what about Clubcard Prices and Top picks? Is it any point from it? For expl: Mcvitie’s Jaffa Cakes Twin Pack 244G here is Regular price £1.60, Clubcard Price £0.90. Offer valid from 30/09 until 20/10.

    Clark_SM, If the Clubcard Price doesn’t show in the guide price/order total, don’t worry, we’ll only charge you the Clubcard Price, which you’ll see it on your final receipt.

  3. I would like Tesco loyalty card, as I need gluten free food and i think it would be cheaper for me.

  4. looking forward to getting my new club.
