Tesco Clubcard Pay+

Tesco Clubcard Pay+ is an account which comes with a debit card and is designed to help shoppers pay, save and collect Tesco Clubcard points.  Tesco Clubcard Pay+ offers shoppers more control of their money, allowing them to upload and ringfence their grocery spend from any UK current account into their Clubcard Pay account through the free Tesco Bank mobile banking app. 

Customers will collect Clubcard points on most of their shopping, both in and out of Tesco.  Tesco Clubcard Pay+ also comes with a Round Up savings account, which lets customers build a savings pot by rounding up their spending to the nearest £1.  Tesco Clubcard Pay+ is currently being trialled with a limited number of customers, before being launched later this year.

Tesco Bank Savings

Tesco Bank has a range of savings products, including fixed rate and instant access options.  A number of these are among the most competitive in the market following recent increases to interest rates.

Tesco Bank Credit Cards

Tesco Bank has an award-winning range of credit cards to suit customers’ needs, whether they want to transfer a balance, get help building their credit score, or spread the cost of a big purchase.  Tesco Bank Credit Cards also function as a Clubcard and Tesco Clubcard points can therefore be collected with purchases.
