UK-based parcel delivery company, Evri is enabling its customers to collect Tesco Clubcard points for every parcel they send as part of a new partnership with the retail giant.
It marks the first time that Tesco has agreed this type of Clubcard partnership with a parcel delivery firm. The initiative is aiming to help ease cost-of-living pressures for customers as the festive parcel-sending season approaches.
In a statement, the firms said that consumers will be able to collect one Tesco Clubcard point for every £1 spent at evri.com. Customers will then be able to turn points into vouchers to get money off their Tesco shop. Alternatively, consumers can choose to donate to charity – or double the value of their points with more than 100 Tesco Clubcard Reward Partners.
Evri’s Clubcard partnership with Tesco represents the latest step forward in its UK growth strategy and comes after it recently announced a £46 million investment to boost its customer service and operations in preparation for its busiest period of the year for parcels from Black Friday to Christmas Day.
A key part of the investment is the hiring of more than 6,500 additional staff members including couriers, customer care team members and workers for its hubs and depots, as well as a new automatic callback function via a dedicated phone line.
The collaboration follows Evri’s partnership with Tesco, which launched in 2021, when Evri’s ParcelShop services were made available in Tesco Express stores across the UK enabling customers to send, receive and return parcels as they shopped.
“We’re proud to make sending a parcel even better value, through our partnership with Tesco Clubcard. Collecting points is an extra benefit we’re delighted to offer in addition to our market leading services, giving consumers control, choice and convenience as we approach the busy festive season,” said David Saenz, Chief Growth Officer at Evri.
“It is great to see two large and successful customer brands come together to help customers at a time when household budgets are under pressure,” he added.
