Clubcard members can exchange reward vouchers for up to three times face value, so that £5 in Clubcard vouchers could be worth up to £15 as part of a limited time deal.
Tesco’s “flash sales” are not daily, localised deals such as those offered by Groupon and do not require a specific number of people to buy them, but are promotions that run either until the product runs out or until the time ends.
The supermarket is working with multi-channel technology firm IVIS Group to offer “flash sales” that count down the time left for customers to take advantage of the offer or how many products left to claim.
Emma Lawrence-Jones, Clubcard marketing manager at Tesco says: “The count-down functionality adds an element of excitement and hype to our Rewards promotions for customers
“Customers can see stock levels counting down in real-time as the products are being sold. This helps creates a ’me too’ effect with others rushing to get their hands on the great deals.”
