Those who already use the original Clubcard app won't need to sign up again. 

You can press ‘Download or open the app’ in the app banner straight from the Clubcard app.

This will automatically move your account to the Tesco Grocery and Clubcard app and you'll be able to use your Clubcard as normal immediately. 

Speaking to Which?, a Tesco spokesperson said the new app would be "the easiest way" to get the most out of what Clubcard has to offer.

They added: "With the combined power of Clubcard Prices, coupons, vouchers, alongside our reward partner codes, Clubcard is the best way to get value at Tesco, and our Grocery and Clubcard app is the easiest way to make the most of all your Clubcard has to offer.

"You can avoid getting caught out at the checkout by downloading and switching to the Tesco Grocery and Clubcard app.

"You won’t lose any points, vouchers or coupons, as these will still be available in the new app or via your online account."
