Get free half-term days out using little-known Tesco Clubcard points hack

By Narin Flanders

Half-term is coming and with prices seeming to be rising on, well, everything, finding fun things to do that won't break the bank is getting more and more difficult.

But help is at hand, thanks to a little-known hack using Tesco Clubcard points.

If you regularly shop at Tesco and use a Clubcard then every three months you get sent money off vouchers based on how many Clubcard points you've collected across the quarter.

You can, of course, use these vouchers to get money off your shopping, but instead of taking a few pounds off the shopping you can use any unused ones this half term to get triple the value on fun family days out - including trips to amusement parks, meals out and much more besides.

To find out how to use them, log into Clubcard Plus, check how much you've got to spend and then choose your half-term highlight.

Some venues will accept partial payment while others will need you to have enough vouchers to pay in full for your fun, so make sure to check the terms and conditions for the individual place before you spend your points on them.

Either way, there's plenty of options, with more than 150 venues that will accept them across the UK, so here's our roundup of some of the best:

Go to the cinema

With Addams Family 2 , Paw Patrol the Movie , the latest James Bond and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings all out at the moment there's something for everyone on at the cinema, and for every 50p in Clubcard vouchers you swap for Cineworld tickets you'll get £1.50 off the price of admission.

Head to a dungeon for a scary day out...

It's Halloween after all.

The world-famous London Dungeon, as well as its sister sites in Blackpool, Edinburgh and York will all give £1.50 discount for every 50p in vouchers.

If you're after some other kinds of thrills, you can also spend your vouchers on admission to Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures or any of the UK's Sea Life Centres.

Swap trick or treating for brick or treating at Legoland

Whether you want to go to Legoland Windsor or the Legoland Discovery Centres in Birmingham or Manchester, you can swap your vouchers for triple the amount of money off tickets.

Just make sure to book in advance, as capacity is limited and often tickets for a particular day sell out.

English Heritage Membership

Why limit yourself to one day out when you can choose a reward to last all year?

Pick up English Heritage membership for a third of the price and take your pick of places to go - over and over again.

Three months of Disney+ TV service

If the weather is bad and you don't want to leave the house at all, don't worry we've still got you covered.

Whether you want to watch Black Widow for free just weeks after its cinema release, catch up with the new Steve Martin crime caper Only Murders in the Building or watch Frozen for the umpteenth time, you can get three full months of Disney+ free with just £8 of Clubcard vouchers.

Clubcard Plus points can also be swapped for vouchers to spend on food at Pizza Express, Zizzi, Prezzo and other pub and restaurant chains.
