Tesco Toy Sale Tips
As with any popular sales event it always pays to try and visit it as early as you can, ideally in the first couple of days if you really want to take advantage of bargains from the whole range of offers.
The longer the sales go on the more lines they will sell out of.
Always use your Tesco Clubcard whenever you shop at Tesco as well as the other options too for collecting more Clubcard points which we have highlighted in this Tesco Clubcard Worth page.
Cashback 2 to 5% cashback
However, this is a way to get some good rewards using Zilch which is the buy now pay later option. However, the best thing is not to use the buy now pay later option but instead use the “Pay it all now” option. This means you effectively use Zilch as a middleman to make the purchase which is funded directly from your bank account so there’s no debt.
In doing so you can currently earn 5% in rewards which means:
- Spend £50 get £2.50 free
- Spend £100 get £5.00 rewards free
Even if the cashback reward is dropped back to 2% it’s still a saving you wouldn’t have otherwise had.
You can use it at almost every retailer including Amazon.
To top it off you can get started with a £10 Zilch referral freebie without even spending any money.
Here you can find out more about how Zilch works.
Just because a toy is in the half-price sale doesn’t mean it’s not available cheaper elsewhere.
It’s always worth a quick price comparison via sites like Pricespy.co.uk or a search in Google Shopping to see if ita available cheaper.
Do bear in mind delivery costs if you are ordering online.
