    I work for Tesco and I've not even heard of this; where did you first hear of this scheme?

    Thanks.

    Tesco used to have a scheme called Clubcard plus which was a prepaid account that you used in store.

    This seemed to have resurfaced as Tesco prepay +

    In the Tesco pay+ app in you scroll right it it gives info about it

    I have an app Tesco Pay+, I think it debits from my Tesco Bank card. I don't remember too well, maybe it was offered to me somehow, around September, supposed to give extra points when used. I tried it once and the checkout girl knew what to do, scanning it from a distance to better capture the generated Qcode. There was something wrong and it gave me no points, I emailed to enquire and they quickly credited them to me, but I haven't bothered with it since.

    Edit: now I realise, what I describe is already well known and you are referring to a new prepaid version...

    I can see the new prepay facility advertised but I can't see why anyone would want to use it... Am I missing something? There don't appear to be any benefits / bonuses etc.

    Just wondering that....with the Tesco pay + there was a small extra benefit of Clubcard points.

    However from a budgeting point of view if me and wife can set up a standing order each for a set amount then thatís good for us.

    Nope. Looks like it's just a waiting list in the Pay+ app.

    Unless they offer a discount or bonus clubcard points it will be pointless, much like Tesco Pay+.

    I'm only using the Tesco Pay+ because of the bonus points - it's horrible to use and simply tapping with my Tesco Debit Card is quicker and easier. Once the promo ends, back to easier transactions

    I have now signed up for this and it appears so far that there is no extra Clubcard points for doing so

    Tesco is losing interest in Clubcard.

    One of the main drivers behind the introduction of Clubcard was the massive collection of data about customers:

    The first response from the board came from Tesco's then chairman Lord MacLaurin, who said, "What scares me about this is that you know more about my customers after three months than I know after 30 years.
    Time marches on. People shop around more now. Many of us shop online and Tesco can now obtain data from our online shopping habits for free.

    I've used the Tesco Pay+ (and it's forerunner) app to get a few free points. I can't think of any reason I would want to pre-load the app with money, rather than pay with my credit card.
