    15% extra only showing on £50 and £100 gift cards for me. £30 and above on the Digital Gift Card Still nice to see some offers! (typically after I'd already got some!!)

    10% off with Tesco online and in store.

    Not great, but better than nothing.

    Anyone seen any decent in-store offers recently?

    Seems like back in the day it was easier to accidentally run into some special offer at the likes of HMV, WHSmith or Boots and pick up a few extra cards...

    Thanks for the info - as per usual the Tesco buying process dies and rejects my card several times - but eventually it worked - just waiting for the codes now (takes a day or so to email it out for some reason).

    Yeah, it doesn’t appear to be automated and needs human interaction for some reason. So they only go out work days.

    I order 2 * 25 Pound ones yesterday but I am still waiting for the codes. I assume it isn't automated to avoid fraud? Have your codes arrived yet?

    I ordered mine about the same time as my last post - I received the codes a couple of minutes ago. All good!

    Mine did turn up the following day, quicker than my previous experience - but I'm saving money so I can't complain too much!

    This is my first ever post on here and I am going to ask what you will probably think are some stupid questions so please be gentle with me thanks!

    How do these things work...do Tesco send you a code for each gift card purchased that has a combination of letters and numbers in the same way as they would appear on a physical iTunes gift card?

    If so I guess to is safe to assume that there is no expiry date on them.

    My Apple Music subscription expires on 2 February so if I purchase 4 x £25 cards from Tesco today it will only cost me £85 to renew if I don't use them until February.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, Tesco send you an email with a code for each individual gift card. The code is actually in an attached pdf file and the code itself is a link (see pic - I’ve already redeemed these). You can just click each code and it takes you to the correct page to redeem it. When I clicked my links, they all ended up redeeming automatically without me having to input the long code anywhere.
    I don’t think there is an expiry on the gift codes, but if you redeem it straight away, it will be fine there for a long time anyway. I’m not going to renew my Apple Music until January, but I’ve now got the £100 I need for the year in my Apple account and it only cost £85.

    I assume that when Tesco runs these offers... they are only available online and not instore?
