Tesco launches Clubcard Pay+ to 20m customers
Tesco has unveiled a new debit card, which will be available to all 20 million Clubcard holders.
The banking arm of the supermarket giant launched the ‘Tesco Clubcard Pay+’ card on 18 March 2021 to a limited number of customers. Since then almost 45,000 cards have been taken out, and from today (10 January), all Tesco Clubcard holders who are UK residents and aged 18 or over can now join the scheme.
Shoppers will now be able to pay the grocer with the new card or use it via Apple Pay. It is also available through Tesco’s own digital wallet.
Shoppers can add money and ringfence their grocery spend from any UK bank account into their Tesco Clubcard Pay+ account, using the free Tesco Bank mobile banking app.
“Tesco Bank has designed a smarter way for Tesco’s 20 million Clubcard members to shop. Tesco Clubcard Pay+ is a clear demonstration of Tesco Bank’s strategy to focus on products which closely align to the needs of Tesco shoppers,” Tesco Bank chief executive Gerry Mallon said.
“We’re very encouraged to see Tesco Clubcard Pay+ help give shoppers the confidence to start saving while managing their budget and picking up extra Clubcard Points wherever they shop.”
Tesco chief customer officer Alessandra Bellini added: “Tesco Clubcard Pay+ combines a new method of payment with all the value of Clubcard membership and a range of additional features.
“It enables households across the UK to feel more in control of their finances and their grocery budget. It also gives families and shoppers the power to make their money go further through Clubcard points and saving while they shop.”
