Tesco is plotting yet another shake-up of its Clubcard scheme, after axing nearly 60 brands from its partner programme earlier this year, with at least two of the most popular deals for train tickets and car hire facing the chop.
According to reports, customers will no longer be able to spend their vouchers with train ticket site RedSpottedHanky after January 31 while Europcar will be pulled in February. Both deals offer three times the face value of the vouchers.
Europcar has confirmed it will be extending its partnership with the rival Nectar loyalty points scheme in 2019.
In January, the retailer announced that 57 brands would will leave the scheme, including Viking River Cruises, Halfords, RSPB, Red Driving School and Figleaves.
However, other deals are being enhanced, including those for Railcards and Cineworld, which will fall in line with the new regime which allows customers to triple the value of their points.
A Tesco spokesman said: “We are constantly reviewing our Clubcard Reward Partners to make sure we offer the best possible range of benefits to our customers.”
In an effort to appease customers who were miffed by the changes, Tesco has launched a new “faster vouchers” scheme, which allowing members to cash in their vouchers without having to wait up to three months for rewards to arrive.
