We are going to Legoland this year, or so my five year old son tells me. Looking on the Legoland website it would cost us as a family if we pay on the day £108.57 for a day pass to get in. For one day. Just one. I love Lego as much as the next person but this is not small change and if I wasn’t able to use my Tesco Clubard vouchers as part of the Clubcard Rewards scheme it may be a no- go.
If I use Clubcard vouchers I can get a day pass for £11.50 per person. Obviously I’ve had to use the calculator for this but by my reckoning I can get us all in for £34.50 in Clubcard vouchers. The debit card is safe!
This won’t be the first time we have used Clubcard vouchers for holidays, activities and treats. Last year we enjoyed a visit to Drayton Manor and have a fantastic time in Thomasland, again without having to pay a penny for the entrance fee.
There are over 600 rewards available including days out, restaurants, magazine subscriptions and hotel accomodation. You can exchange your clubcard vouchers for up to four times their face value to spend on rewards and really make the most of them. Basically every £5 in vouchers is worth £20 when you spend them on a reward. Tesco regularly add new rewards and with the February statements due any day now, why not visit the site and have a browse. With Valentines Day around the corner I might point Roy in the direction of the jewellery section. Knowing my luck he may end up looking at the activity days but either way we can treat each other and save some pennies doing it.
We enjoying treating ourselves using our Tesco Clubcard vouchers. It’s great to take the kids out all over and still have the funds left for even more treats and adventures.
You can find out more about the Clubcard Rewards scheme on the Clubcard Deals page. The hardest part is narrowing down what you want to spend the vouchers on!

The lovelies at Tesco are running a fantastic competition which means you (the kids!) could be in for a chance to win an amazing 83 piece art chest or a Crayola set for themselves, plus £500 for books for your school.
It’s really easy to enter and will keep the kids occupied for a while (nice one Tesco, we like quiet and occupied children!). To enter all you have to do is…..
1. Read the exclusive short story He Should have Listened to Grandad by Steve Hartley.
2. Draw a picture to illustrate it (be as creative as you can here kids!).
3. Ask an adult to scan or take a photo of your masterpiece and send it in to us using the form here!
There are three categories – two to five years; six to eight years; nine to twelve years and there’s one winner from each category. The winner of the two to five category will receive £50 worth of Crayola products, the winners of both the six to eight and nine to 12 categories will each win a Reeves Watercolour Art Chest. Each winner will also receive a £500 cheque for their nominated school or nursery to spend on books.
I’m not sure but wouldn’t a donation of £500 worth of books to your school get you out of all bake sale duties from now until the end of your child’s school life? Excuse me while I grab Kieran and the crayons!
The Judge – (Ed Vere) and a chance to win more prizes!
Top author and illustrator Ed Vere is judging the competition. He is taking over the Tesco Magazine twitter account this Monday 12th December at 4pm for a live chat and has also given them a stunning illustration to giveaway as a prize plus books. All the details are here. (Does anyone else think that he looks like a young Richard Branson?)
You can tweet questions in advance using the hashtag #kidsbookclub
This is a great competition and another way to get the kids using their imagination!
Good luck all!!!
