Tesco competitions: list of text prize draws

Tesco always have a selection of great text (SMS) competitions, most of them with lots of prizes! They’re quick and easy to enter, and for most of them you don’t need to make a purchase in store.

One of the main problems is finding details of them all, as Tesco are not very efficient at putting their displays out in store, or at keeping their Competitions page updated. So I’ve decided to collate all current (and recently closed) Tesco comps into a list here on SuperLucky.

Tesco text competitions are all sent to the shortcode 60110. They are not included in your mobile provider’s free texts allowance, and will cost you SNR (Standard Network Rate) to enter. This is usually 15p but some providers might be a little cheaper.

At the end of the post I will also list recently closed Tesco competitions – it can be helpful to have this information easily accessible if you receive a winning text message, so you can check to see what prize you have won.

Tesco competitions are advertised in store, in the Tesco magazine (which you can read on the Issuu website) and on the Tesco groceries website.

How to enter Tesco text competitions

Tesco always use the same shortcode of 60110, but the promotions have different formats.

To enter, simply text the keyword, then leave a space, add your full name, another space and your postcode and then send it to 60110. For example NESTLE DI COKE BN16FR.

Each promotion will have a separate keyword, and depending on where it’s advertised there will be a number at the end of it – eg. BELVITA5 is the code on the display units by the entrance in my Tesco. Using a number makes no difference to your entry – all texts all go into the same prize draw. The numbers are just to help Tesco see how effective each form of advertising is.

You will receive a ‘bounceback’ message – depending on the format of the promotion, you will receive either a reply confirming your entry into the draw, a reply with a link to upload a receipt photo, or an instant win/lose message. If you accidentally enter too many times, you’ll receive a ‘Sorry, you have exceeded the entry limit for this service’ message.

Unless otherwise stated below, all Tesco prize promotions listed here are open to UK residents aged 18 years and older.

Tesco text competition formats

  • Prize draw with a single closing date – you can only enter once and all winners are drawn at the end of the promotion
  • Daily prize draw – winner(s) chosen every day – you can send a text entry once every calendar day
  • Instant win – if you’re the first person to text in after a random ‘winning moment’ you will receive an immediate reply to let you know you’ve won a prize
  • Product purchase and receipt upload – after sending your text to 60110, Tesco will reply with a unique link to upload a photograph of your Tesco receipt, showing a purchase of the relevant product (this must be a purchase made within the promotional period). The purchase can be made in store or online – for a Tesco.com purchase, upload a photo of your delivery receipt or a screenshot of your online order.

What happens if you win a Tesco text competition?

If you win a Tesco text entry competition, you will usually get a text message congratulating you on your win, although it could be a phone call. Winners will need to email a specific address @tescoprizes.com within a set period (usually 14 days) and may be asked to provide a photo of their ID to validate the win. See example winning texts below!

Tips for Tesco text competitions

  • On an iPhone, use text replacement (Settings > General > Keyboard) to set a quick shortcut for your full name and postcode – eg. I’ve created a shortcut of ttxt, so when I type it, it converts to my full name and postcode
  • Not sure if you’ve already entered? Just search for the keyword in your text messages, or find 60110 in your message history and scroll back to check
  • Encourage family members to enter too – but keep in mind it’s usually only one prize allowed per household
