On-Demand Pick

Game Of Thrones Blinkbox

The fourth series ended on Monday night on Sky. If you missed it, there’s a great deal from Blinkbox to buy it. You can download all 10 episodes for £17.99 (£23.99 in HD). It’s not a bad price, and the DVD won’t be out for a while.

But what makes it a great deal is that you get 1000 Clubcard points. These are worth £10 in cash in Tesco, but can be traded in for £40 of meal vouchers at Pizza Express, £20 to spend on train tickets and much more (Read our 6 Best Uses Of Tesco Clubcard Points article for our fave ways to take advantage of the scheme.) Plus you get a free 10″ pizza voucher to use at Tesco, worth £4.25.

So for £17.99 you could be getting:

Series 4 of Game Of Thrones
A free pizza
£10 off your groceries

Total worth £31.24

Or

Series 4 of Game Of Thrones
A free pizza
£20 train travel voucher at Red Spotted Hanky

If you also want to own the previous three series, you can download them from Blinkbox too. Each series is currently £17.99 for standard definition, but you’ll also get 250 bonus Tesco Clubcard points with each purchase. The points are worth £2.50 in spend at Tesco, but worth up to a tenner if you trade in for meals, vouchers and other goodies with Clubcard Boost.
