Exchange Tesco Clubcard points for Cineworld tickets

Tesco Clubcard sells vouchers to use at Cineworld. You get £1 for every 50p of points you use. It’s not a bad deal, but we reckon there are better uses of Tesco Clubcard points – here are our top picks.

Cineworld memberships

There are two memberships for Cineworld, though only one will get you access to as many films as you like. There are sometimes discounts on Unlimited which we’ll also share here.

Cineworld Unlimited Card from £9.99 a month

MyCineworld booking discount

Register for MyCineworld Plus and you get a 10% discount on all online bookings. However the cost is £5.95 a year. But if you book six or so tickets online you’ll probably make the money back.

Cineworld gift card discounts

There are a few ways that you can buy discounted Cineworld gift cards, including from Costco, if you’ve got a membership. 

Tesco and Amazon often run promotions where you can get a Cineworld gift card at 15%-20% off, so these are worth checking out too.

The nice thing about buying discounted Cineworld gift cards is that you can still make the most out of other discounts, like Meerkat Movies. 

You’ll need to remember to use the full gift card before it expires, otherwise you’ll just lose money. We’ll share any offers available here.

Another way to save money on Cineworld tickets is to use cashback sites to buy Cineworld gift cards. These include JamDoughnut, TopGiftCards, Cheddar or HyperJar. We have a section covering this in our discounted gift cards guide.

If you’re a new member of some of these sites, you can get up to £15 for signing up and making your first purchase, too.
