You know that homemade Subway app we mentioned a few days ago? The maker of that has now turned his hand to creating a Tesco Clubcard app, meaning any UK shoppers who’re registered for Tesco’s point-saving scheme can use their phones to keep track of their loyalty card.
And you’re much more likely to have your phone on you in the supermarket than your Clubcard, right? Here’s how it works:
Enter your regular UK Clubcard number off your card and optionally your postcode. Your clubcard barcode will be displayed for Tesco staff to scan your phone and allow you to collect clubcard points. Current limitations with the Tesco tills mean that it doesn’t work on self service tills, baskets only tills or at Tesco Express.
If you have entered your postcode and your card is registered under that postcode (and not a temporary card) then it will also show your current points balance.
And a couple of screenshots:
We can foresee the manager being called to the till the first time you try to get a checkout operative to point their scanner at your phone.
