Martin Lewis has just issued a two week warning to Tesco shoppers in the latest instalment of Wallet Wednesdays.
The Money Saving Expert himself has warned those with an affinity for a cheeky big Tesco's trip to keep their eyes peeled for some upcoming key dates over the next couple weeks.
Joined by his co-host, Susanna Reid, Lewis has urged the British public to double-check their Clubcard vouchers to help save an extra couple of quid.
The supermarket chain is also reducing its Clubcard Reward perk from 3x to 2x.
The official Tesco website explains: "Time's running out to get 3x more value with our Reward Partners."
It continues: "From 14 June, you can exchange your Tesco Clubcard vouchers for 2x their value. To give you more time to use your codes, we've extended the validity period for all codes ordered until 13 June, from 6 months to 12 months."
Tesco has since informed customers why the company is making the change.
"We’re making this change to the scheme to make sure we can continue to provide a wide range of rewards that meet the needs of all our Tesco Clubcard members, while keeping prices low for everyone," it notes.
"Tesco Clubcard continues to have the biggest and most generous Reward Partner scheme with access to over 100 Partners at 2x your Clubcard voucher value."
So, for example, customers can currently can trade in a £5 voucher for three times the value until the end of the month.
Lewis told shoppers to have a gander online to see whether they currently had one of these shortly-expiring coupons and also shared a nifty tip on how customers can extend their perks.
He said: "You go online, spend 50p on a restaurant voucher of your £10. So you now have got £1.50 of your restaurant voucher because 50p becomes £1.50.
"For the rest of the £9.50 they re-issue and it lasts another two years. So if you spend just a little bit of a voucher the rest of it is reissued and it last another two years. But otherwise the older vouchers become invalid on May 31."
Every little helps indeed.
