Sainsbury’s has also revamped its Nectar card scheme giving customers personalised offers to boost their points
Tesco is launching a new Clubcard subscription service offering discounts on shopping for a monthly fee.
New and existing Clubcard customers can subscribe to the new Clubcard Plus for £7.99 a month.
Benefits include 10% off big shops in-store and 10% off selected Tesco brands such as F&F, Fred & Flo, Go Cook, Tesco Pet, Carousel, and Fox & Ivy.
The new Clubcard Plus service will launch later this year and will be available to use in all UK Tesco stores.
Clubcard Plus holders will also be able to get double data from Tesco Mobile, while Tesco Bank credit card users won’t have to pay foreign exchange fees abroad.
You will be able to manage all of the new benefits on the Clubcard app.
Alessandra Bellini, Tesco chief customer officer, says: “New Clubcard Plus is a breakthrough innovation giving customers even more ways to get the best value while shopping at Tesco, for their everyday essentials, weekly shops, mobile and banking.”
Tesco Clubcard was first launched in 1995 and then relaunched in 2018 with contactless cards.
With Tesco Clubcard you collect one Clubcard point for every £1 you spend in Tesco and one point for every £8 you spend everywhere else. The points can be turned into vouchers, so 150 points are worth £1.50.
Sainsbury’s revamps Nectar card
Sainsbury’s is also rolling out a new Nectar card scheme, which will allow customers to boost their points.
Currently, Nectar shoppers earn one point for every pound they spend but the scheme will help them earn even more perks on top of this.
Customers will be sent a range of point-boosting offers via the Nectar app based on their shopping habits each Friday with the aim of boosting points.
To get the bonus points all you have to do is scan your Nectar card or the app at the till.
If you are an existing user you can update the app to get the benefits while new users can register online.
With a Nectar card you two points for every £1 spent in Sainsbury’s and one point for every £5 spent elsewhere. If you spend £6,000 a year on your card in Sainsbury's then you'll earn the equivalent of £60 (500 points = £2.50).
James Moir, managing director of Nectar, says: “We’re delighted to be unveiling a new world of Nectar to our customers, making it easier than ever before for them to get the most out of our hundreds of partners and rewards on offer.
“During the trials in Wales and the Isle of Wight, we listened to what our customers wanted and how they like to receive offers, in an increasingly digitised world.”
You are mixing up the points given by the loyalty schemes and the points given for the supermarket credit cards.
With the loyalty cards you don't earn points elsewhere on amounts spent unless it's a special offer or partner offer.

It would be nice to see these dates so we can see how old the article is. Thanks.
"If you spend £6,000 a year on your card in Sainsbury's then you'll earn the equivalent of £60."
Not correct. You will receive 6000 points, which is worth a miserly £30.
