Tesco is axing its Pay+ app meaning customers will not be able to use the app in superstores as well as Tesco Express and Tesco Metro branches. The app is useful as it allows customers to have their Clubcard available at all times.
The app is being discontinued from April 18 and shoppers will need to download the Tesco Grocery & Clubcard app instead.
Shoppers will be able to use the app to access the cheaper Clubcard prices for items and to get their vouchers to use in-store.
The app will allow customers to collect Clubcard points and instantly turn them into vouchers, and it has a feature for creating shopping lists.
Those who do not download the app will be able to get their points on their online account. People can download the app through their current Clubcard app.
The app can also be downloaded for Apple devices and through Google Play. A person’s account will automatically be transferred to the new app.
Prices for everyday groceries have soared over the past year. The cost of eggs in the UK has increased by 33.5 percent over the past year.
The overall rate of inflation peaked at just over 11 percent last year and has dipped since then but many prices are continuing to rise.
Britons will see many household bills go up from next month including water bills, council tax and mobile and broadband bills.
Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announced in today’s Budget the energy price guarantee would continue to cap the price of energy at the current rate, for another three months.
This means a typical household will continue to pay average bills of £2,500 a year for energy.
However, people in England, Scotland and Wales will see a real-term increase in their bills next month as the final instalment of the £400 energy bills discount went out this month.
The base rate is currently at four percent with some analysts predicting it could rise further this year.
Wholesale prices for energy have decreased recently with figures from Investec predicting average bills for a typical household will drop to £2,165 a year from July.
Many benefits including Universal Credit, PIP and Pension Credit are increasing by 10.1 percent in April.
