    From MSE:

    As a bonus, if you sign up now, until 15 January 2017 you can get an extra 100 Clubcard points each of the first five times you use the app (minimum £1 spend). The bonus points will be added to your account within two weeks of making a transaction.

    I work for Tesco and whenever I use Clubcard I find it takes two-three days (depending on when I've made a purchase) for any points to filter through.

    Whoops, not sure how I missed that line. I'll look out for the points appearing later. Just thought it was odd that I couldn't find any mention of the offer on the site!

    How do you find the app out of interest?

I used a self checkout, the barcode took a bot of effort to scan but once that happened it only took a couple of seconds for the payment to register. But still, it was more hassle than contactless so I doubt I'll keep using it.

    Given that I no longer carry my physical clubcard any more, I still need to scan my phone as well as using contactless, therefore PayQwiq means I only need to scan once to pay and clubcard so its a lot less hassle than contactless.

    Good point, if you scan your phone anyway for Clubcard then this is definitely easier.

    A daft question, but how do you add your Clubcard details to your PayKwik account?

    It should prompt you to enter the details on sign up I think. But if you already set up the app then go to settings then clubcard and there is an option to change the clubcard number.

    Before I merged my Clubcard accounts I used my phone to scan my loyalty card using the app's QR code at my nearest Extra a couple of times.

    Now I've got my discount card I'm unable to do so and whilst it's a shame Tesco haven't added the ability to present Clubcard in Wallet (iOS) using TouchID at least I won't need my Clubcard when PayQwik launches in my store next year.

    You've misunderstood. Its not the provider having access that concerns me, its having to rely on the providers services for access to the app in the first place. No phone service no access.

    (Use a VPN as well, obviously.)

    When it was announced earlier on in the year about the closure of Clubcard Boost MSE seemed to suggest they were going to copy Sainsbury's and allow customers to redeem points instead of waiting for vouchers every quarter.

    Although that's yet to happen it adds a layer of security-if someone found your plastic card on the street they could fraudulently clear your earnings.

    payqwik still not accepting Tesco Clubcard Plus bank cards!!??? Been a loyal customer for many many years and have found their attitude over this to be appalling. Rang them to query this over 2 weeks ago and they promised to look into and call me back. No-one did. I've just rung them again to be told they are looking into it. Find it hard to believe they are having problems getting their own app to accept their own bank account cards! I notice that someone on this chat was "fobbed" off by them last September. nice way to treat your loyal customers Tesco! Sainsbury's Nectar points are the way to go in future. Maybe Martin Lewis can highlight this on his next programme?

    Malware or Rooted
    anyone else getting an error message from Payqwiq: 'won't work on a device that has malware or is rooted'? I'm pretty sure my device isn't rooted and two different apps find no malware. But not sure what to do next now

    You can use Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard, MasterCard Debit, Maestro and American Express.

    That'd be why you're having trouble adding Clubcard Plus.

    I think the Tesco Clubcard Plus is actually just a Maestro debit card and that's why it works at the till when used to pay for groceries. That being the case it should be relatively easy to enable these Plus accounts for use with PayQwiq. I suspect that the will simply isn't there to resolve this issue.

    I've contacted PayQwiq multiple times via telephone, email and Facebook Messenger since it was launched and get the same "it's coming" story. That must be at least a year now. I've even offered to be a guinea-pig if they wanted an actual customer to try it out with.
    No reliance should be placed on the above.

    I had a nice email from them today because I haven't used PayQwik for a while (almost as soon as I'd amassed the 500 point bonus.) 100 points for another transaction before 30th July. It does state that it's by invitation only, so check your emails.
