New version of Tesco Clubcard iPhone app submitted

We've submitted a new version of the Tesco Clubcard app to the Apple iTunes App Store.

As well as continuing to feature the on-screen barcode which can be scanned at most checkouts, the updated Tesco Clubcard app now gives you access your live points balance if you have a cellular or wifi internet connection:

A second feature of the app is to allow you to calculate just how many points you can accumulate in a year, in order to use as vouchers or use with Clubcard Deals. The calculator uses sliders that you set when estimating your weekly, monthly and yearly shopping habits with Tesco:

The page scrolls down and covers all aspects of shopping with Tesco from weekly food and fuel shopping to use of Clubcard credit card, electricity and gas bills (where you earn Clubcard points whether due to a partner agreement or paying the bill with a Tesco Clubcard payment card), insurance, mobile phone top-ups, clothing, entertainment, health & beauty, and even Tesco Opticians and the Tesco Direct catalogue:

Once you have set the points level, you can then get an estimate of the savings you'll make in pounds and pence over the year, both in vouchers and deals:

The Tesco Clubcard is free from the Apple iTunes Store and, if you already have the app, the free update will be automatically downloaded when you next use iTunes online or access the 'App Store' icon on your iPhone. Click here to start iTunes to go straight to the app download page.

The updated application, like the original, was built by Ben Martin of Tesco PLC's Group Technology & Architecture team. Ben, you've done a great job!


  1. This all looks great, but any news on an Android app?

  2. The app is no longer on app store any ideas people??

  3. The app isn't in the itunes store. Where can I get it?

  4. Looks like a Miss Marple storyline.."the case of the disappearing iPhone app"
    no clubcard app available in the UK store.

  5. This app is not available in the UK. Why is this. Looks like Itunes has mucked up

  6. Yeah, I keep gettng an error message when I try and download the app from the UK store. Any update on whats going on?

  7. I got the app several weeks ago and it worked fine. Today when I tried to open it, it wouldn't work! I went to app store to get it again ... abd it's gone! Anyone shed any light on this?


As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
