With the cost of living rising by the day and fears of more increases in energy prices to come this autumn, the impending school summer holidays could place another financial strain on families. With six weeks of freedom for the kids, many parents struggle to find ways to keep them entertained without forking out a small fortune.
There are so many walks and trips to the park you can do – which is where a little-known hack using Tesco Clubcard points comes in. The Lemon Aid parenting newsletter says days out are available at 150 venues across the country, so there should be something near you.
It says: “If you regularly shop at Tesco and use a Clubcard then every three months you get sent money off vouchers based on how many Clubcard points you’ve collected across the quarter, with you getting 1 point for every pound spent either in store , online or on petrol. You can, of course, use these vouchers to get money off your shopping, but instead of taking a few pounds off you can trade them in for three times the value on fun family days out nationwide. “
Instead of taking food 5 off a food bill, it means you can get 15 to spend out and about. To use them, first you will ned to log into Clubcard Plus.
Check how much you’ve got to spend and then choose your holiday highlight. Some venues will accept partial payment while others will need you to have enough vouchers to pay in full for your fun.
Make sure to check the terms and conditions for the individual place before you spend your points to avoid any disappointment and wasted points. There are plenty of options, with more than 150 venues accepting them across the UK.
