EVEN MORE BARGAINS IN YOUR BASKET

TESCO has teamed up with LivingSocial to offer customers in Sheffield the opportunity to exchange their Clubcard vouchers for experiences through the daily deals website.

The pilot deal will allow Tesco Clubcard holders to purchase £15 of LivingSocial Deal Pounds for just £7.50; effectively doubling the value of the Clubcard vouchers.

LivingSocial offers shoppers the chance to enjoy great value local experiences and services, with savings typically ranging from 50-90%, whilst also helping people to rediscover their local area and sample new experiences on their doorstep.

The social commerce site offers something for everyone, with previous deals in the steel city including spa getaways, meals out and luxury weekend breaks.

Peter Briffett, Managing Director of UK and Ireland, said: “LivingSocial is committed to supporting local businesses by connecting them with their target consumers and cannot think of a better partner than Tesco to support this goal. By joining forces, we are in a strong position to offer supermarket shoppers the opportunity to get even more bargains in their basket.

“With social media and exciting local experiences at the heart of our business, we thrive on great stories that our members are keen to share with their friends - as the 63 million sales we have delivered to date demonstrate."

Ian Simkins, Freetime Director of Tesco added: “Tesco prides itself in helping local communities and this is further testament to that.

“Sheffield has a wealth of exciting and unique activities on offer, and by partnering with LivingSocial we are inviting our Clubcard members to rediscover the very best of where they live.”

Clubcard holders should visit www.tesco.com/clubcard/sheffield to access the deal.
