Where can you spend your vouchers?
Your vouchers can be used in a number of different ways:
The Tesco Internet guarantee
With a Tesco Clubcard Credit Card you can shop online with confidence. We guarantee to cover you against fraudulent transactions carried out without your consent when you use your card at Tesco.ie or anywhere else on the Internet.
Chip and Pin
Tesco has joined forces with the Irish banks, building societies and other retailers to combat increasing credit card fraud. Instead of signing your name on the receipt, you will be asked to enter a 4-digit PIN on the keypad. This means only you the cardholder who knows your PIN number for your card will be able to authorise purchases made on your card - Do not share your PIN number with anyone.

If our FraudSafe specialists become suspicious that someone is using your card details without your knowledge, we will call you as soon as possible on the contact numbers you have given us.

World wide, credit cards have become an almost indispensable financial tool in the system of payments.
They are deceptively convenient and make it easier to spend money.
People are often surprised when they receive their monthly statement at some of the costs involved in using a credit card.
There is so much competition in the market today, however, that it’s possible to find a card that is a good match for your financial habits, as long as you do your homework, and will help keep the cost low.
There are a number of things to look out for when deciding on a credit card, not just the APR rate, and it’s important that you arm yourself with the appropriate information before making a choice.
Make sure you understand your credit card fees by reading the terms and conditions of your agreement, and by paying off your balance every month.
Many credit cards carry a variety of fees you may not discover until you have to pay them. These include application and processing fees, late payment fees, transaction fees, fees for exceeding your credit limit, and balance transfer fees.
Some say cash is king while others are of the opinion that it is just a matter of time before cash becomes obsolete.
There’s no doubt that we are using credit cards more these days to pay for everyday items like fuel and food. With the convenience of internet shopping and the security a credit card offers, consumers are becoming more comfortable paying with plastic than in cold hard cash.
Why paying with plastic is safer
Every credit card issued has a spending limit.
This is the amount of money you are able to borrow on your credit card. Check your monthly statement to see what your limit is.
