While vouchers that were valid until August have had their expiry dates extended until February 2021.

Earlier this year, Tesco also extended the validity of vouchers that expired in May until November 2020 – an end-date which remains.

Through Tesco's loyalty scheme, shoppers are given one point for every £1 spent and each Clubcard point is worth 1p when you shop.

These points are sent as vouchers every three months and are valid for two years.

If they aren't spent – either in store or online – they are lost and cannot be refunded.

How to reclaim your lost Clubcard points

IT’S easy to claim back lost Clubcard points so you don’t miss out.

First log in to the Clubcard section on Tesco.com and click on the "My Vouchers" tab which shows your voucher history, including which points haven’t been spent yet.

These unused ones can then instantly be spent online. To use them in store, you'll need to print the vouchers yourself.

Bear in mind that you'll have to make sure you're registered with Tesco first to log into the website.

You can also sign up for Faster Vouchers – which means you don't need to wait for your points statement every three months.

To do this log into your Clubcard account and select the button that turns your points into vouchers.

Select "request vouchers" and the vouchers will appear in your account within 24 hours.

Points can also be redeemed for reward vouchers which are up to three times more valuable – and these are usually valid for six months once exchanged.

But Tesco has once again extended the validity of the vouchers and rewards to help shoppers with expiring points during the pandemic.

It comes as some may want to avoid shopping in-store, while others will be unable to claim rewards at cinemas and restaurants, which remain closed in England due to the second lockdown.

Shoppers themselves don't need to do anything to get the extended expiry dates.

Paper vouchers will be accepted at the till until the later expiry date, while Clubcard vouchers in the app or online will show the new expiry date.

Meanwhile, most newly exchanged reward vouchers will now automatically be valid for a year.

The only exception is if you've swapped for air miles with Avios or Virgin Atlantic Flying Club, in which case there's no change.

In other Clubcard news, Tesco is giving out £5 vouchers to loyal customers – will you get one?

While a Tesco shopper was recently left shocked after receiving a Clubcard addressed to Mr T*T W**K.

Meanwhile, shoppers have praised Tesco’s Christmas ad where the naughty list is scrapped – but "tired" parents have asked for it to be dropped as they can't bribe kids.
