These Pounds go into a "Cashpot" which you then convert into vouchers to get money off future purchases.

For example, one of the tasks available today sees customers who spend £5 on chilled burgers and buns have £1 added to their Cashpot.

You can also get a 10% boost on your Pounds when buying "Star" products which are updated on the app regularly.
