    Just spoke to them on the Freephone number and the lady said it should go back to 3x in June.

    I will probably pay cash for train travel in the meantime. Not wasting my vouchers for 2 x when I can get 3 x in June.

    Also be aware that 57 reward partners are leaving the scheme.

    I wonder if Tesco are changing what they pay to them so have decided not to renew rather than been dumped. Speaking to one of the management at a local animal park recently talking about another local attraction that has pulled out from the end of year citing inflexibility forced on them. They said they get £4 from Tesco for a £10 days out voucher. They are quite happy to keep with the scheme as actual costs per visitor are low and they hopefully will get an income boost from the shop & restaurant. It is a relatively small stand alone concern within a larger organisation so probably anything is better than nothing.

    I am another annoyed at the Red Spotted Hanky going back to 2x until June. I wish I had converted some while they were at 3x briefly. Thanks Martin Lewis (not!) for you campaign.

    If I convert part of my voucher, what is the validity date for the remainder? Suppose I have a £5 voucher expiring next month. If I convert £2.50 of it to a reward, what happens with the remaining £2.50? I have over £50 vouchers expiring before June and I would like to use for train vouchers at 3x once they change it.

    At one time they would convert the old vouchers into new ones if they were about to expire if you phoned. Guess they no longer do this? Perhaps it is worth asking.

    They downgraded vouchers for Stena from x4 to x3 a few years ago- but they are still worth having 'though I don't shop there as often as I used to now we have an Aldi.

    I cashed in £12 on 15th January and got £36 in Chef and Brewer Vouchers instead of the usual £48. Following this sites' advice I have just given Tesco a call on 0800 505 555. I was given an extra £20 in C & B vouchers to cover my loss and a couple of quid for my time.

    If you have cause to ring the Clubcard helpline within the next few weeks, fingers crossed you don't get a Scottish accent.
    Why, the Cardiff CSC is closing on Feb 16th, I suspect those there may be a bit more generous, than Dundee!

    used one for Sainsbury (£3.00 off £30.00)
    I seem to have stopped getting these in the post... Last set was probably November if not earlier.

    Has anyone had a book of Sainsbury's money off vouchers since the start of 2018?

    Yes, two - one following on immediately from the other - following quite a large gap.
