At the moment, Clubcard users are sent their vouchers every quarter. Great if the letter drops through your letter box just before you head off on a big shop, but infuriating if you return laden with bags only to find that you could have saved a packet if you’d held off until tomorrow.
With Faster Vouchers you will now be able to turn your points into a voucher within 24 hours.
How do I convert my Clubcard points into a Faster Voucher?
In order to turn your points into a Faster Voucher, you need to log into your Clubcard account either through the website or the app.
Your points balance will be displayed, as well as how much those points are worth in voucher terms. You can then select to turn them into Faster Vouchers, and that amount should then be available for you to spend within 24 hours.
It’s important to note that you won’t be able to request Faster Vouchers for the two weeks before your May, August, November and February statements are due. Because August’s vouchers are currently being sorted and sent out, you won’t be able to use Faster Vouchers just yet.
You’ll also need to have a minimum of 150 Clubcard points – which is worth £1.50 – in order to request a voucher.
If you do opt to use Faster Vouchers, you have to convert as many points as possible when you do so. That will be your total points rounded down to the nearest 50p.
How will I receive my Faster Vouchers?
With Faster Vouchers, you’ll get an email when your points have been converted into a voucher.
You can then print them off at home and take them into store, or if you prefer hand your phone with the app running to the person on the till so they can scan the voucher.
Using Faster Vouchers does mean that your quarterly statement will be emailed to you, rather than sent through the post, though you can opt back into receiving postal statements if you prefer.
Where can I spend my Faster Vouchers?
While Clubcard vouchers can come in really handy when you want to save a few quid on you groceries, they really come into their own when you spend them with the scheme’s partners.
That’s because you can convert them into much bigger discounts.
The same is true of Faster Vouchers. It’s completely up to you how you spend them, whether you use them in-store or trade them in for bigger savings with reward partners.
How long are the Faster Vouchers valid for?
Your Faster Vouchers are valid for use for up to 21 months from the day you convert them.
The vouchers will have the expiry date displayed on them to help you keep track.
