UK-based retailer Tesco is set to roll out a new contactless Clubcard that will allow shoppers to tap their card at checkout to add any earned points from their transaction instantly.

The loyalty card, which will be launched on 7 July, can be used instantly.

The retailer has also made significant improvements to the Tesco Clubcard app, which allows new users to sign up to Clubcard immediately, while they shop in store. And existing customers can avail their vouchers at the checkout, at the touch of a button.

Tesco chief customer officer Alessandra Bellini said: “Tesco Clubcard is one of the most uniquely helpful things we do and it’s our way of saying thank you to our customers for shopping with us.

“We’ve listened to customers and we’re delighted to have made Clubcard even simpler and easier to use, introducing a brand new contactless card, an upgraded Clubcard app, and added to our list of partners too.

“Clubcard is the most rewarding loyalty scheme in the sector and we’re looking forward to seeing how customers respond to the improvements.”

Furthermore, Tesco is also adding 400 brands in its Clubcard Rewards Partners scheme, which allows members to increase the value of the vouchers they receive by spending them elsewhere. Uber and are joining the scheme.
