    It's a bit of a kerfuffle to get the discount but i guess £10 is £10

    May have been mentioned before but railcards can be bought for £14 worth of Tesco Clubcard vouchers.

    ...which is a terrible thing to spend those vouchers on as £15 will get you £45 (possibly £60 soon) of Red Spotted Hanky travel vouchers.

    That would be even more fantastic. Do you have any idea when this offer might come alive?

    It looks to me at the moment that RSH will stay at 3x value with just a few rewards that are cheaper for Tesco to buy going to 4x. Shame, but Tesco have to make a profit!
    I'd like to be proved wrong though.

    It is highly unlikely that RSH vouchers will increase from 3x to 4x. The only ones to increase are "Days Out" and "Restaurant" vouchers, because Tesco can negotiate a lower price with the suppliers (as "2for1" vouchers are often available in these sectors).

    It's probably worth mentioning here how to get more Advance tickets out of the TP website.
    e.g. for Liverpool to Newcastle you must search for trains at 6am (as that is the only direct service). Then click on the 'Click here to check if slower routes with cheaper tickets are available', choose an Advance fare price, then navigate through the day using the 'later' option.

    It won't always work for all advance fares, because if there is a long period in the day without any then it will fail.

    The e-voucher is in the form of 500 loyalty points and is valid for a year. No minimum spend.

    I successfully signed up today, but no points have been credited yet, although it does say it will be 'within 4 days.' Good luck.

    That offer is not as good as it sounds - no Railcard or child discounts. That rules out a lot of people! :(

    Saw that earlier I'm not convinced it is that good an offer and in fact looks like it may be more expensive if you can't get a railcard discount on the offer, also London to Edinburgh the offer is only about £10 cheaper without a railcard.

    I agree - I tried my Railcard and there was no discount, still £25, and the fare was only applicable from Leeds rather than Ilkley where I travel from. As a result, if you were booking early, the difference was marginal,.
    Definitely not as good as the previous offer, I managed to go from Ilkley to Glasgow via East Coast this week for £17.85 1st class each way (with Railcard), with meals and drinks thrown in.
