360 Avios for £3 with Lemon Popsicles and Strawberry Milkshakes!

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (www.shopperpoints.co.uk), which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

No, I haven’t gone mad.  Don’t worry.

“Lemon Popsicles & Strawberry Milkshakes: Love, Love Me Do” is a ‘Various Artists’ compilation CD (3 CD’s actually).  I have no idea what it is about, and frankly I’m not really bothered!

What I AM bothered about is the fact that a) it only costs £3 and b) Tesco Direct is giving 150 bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order a copy!

The Tesco Direct link is here.

The maths here is compelling enough to order a copy.  Even without a Clubcard to Avios points conversion bonus (which is highly likely at some point in 2013), you are getting 363 Avios for £2.97, so just 0.82p each.  A 50% conversion bonus would take that down to 0.55p each.

Postage is free as well, so you don’t even need to bother doing ‘Click and Collect’.

If you give it to Oxfam, they’ll probably sell it for £5 and (if you’re a 40% taxpayer) you’ll be able to claim £1 tax relief if you sign up for their Gift Aid scheme.  (Which you should … Oxfam has sold £1,000 of our stuff this year.  They get an extra £200 because of the Gift Aid, and we get £200 back via  our tax returns.)

  1. Apologies if I’m being the “slow one at the back” here, but even when I take this right up to payment (but don’t actually pay, obviously) it’s still saying I’m only getting 3 clubcard points.

    Is there any magic required to add the bonus points?

  2. Ignore me, there’s actually another “lemon popsicles…” CD, again for £3 that doesn’t have the bonus points.

  3. “Postage is free as well, so you don’t even need to bother doing ‘Click and Collect’.”

    – Collect at store is actually greyed out, ‘These items can only be delivered.’

    Given it is free delivery that will not be a problem for most people. But for some of us that is more awkward than collect at chosen store, especially if it might need signing.

  4. Thanks for this. Just stretching the offer, the bonus is per item so 300 extra CC points for £6 for example

    The CD seems to be another ‘oldies but goodies’ package recycling old hits so our Swiss family who love this kind of thing almost had an extra Christmas present. As the CD is due for delivery in January, they’ll have to wait for it.

  5. OK, now it’s my turn to be the slow one at the back. I cannot see any reference anywhere to the clubcard offer – only that it’s points. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

  6. Ah, yes, thanks.

  7. Cheers Raffles – I was wondering how to get Avios on my secret santa gift.

  8. Your secret santa target may be a little put out when they get their gift on 15 January though…

  9. Singing Dwarf says:

    Or order 7x copies for £21 and 1,068 CC points – use voucher TD-HGKH to get £3 off £20 spend (0.75p / Avios not accounting for any conversion bonus)

  10. Thanks Raffles, will purchase and donate the cds 😉

    Given that it’d only need a few hundred to get in the top 100, I’m sure it will chart, the question is where. If it hits number one I think it will be the writing on the wall for us.

  12. Sir Stamford says:

    Each Tesco point is worth 2.4 Avios. Based on my maths for each CD – 3 base plus 150 bonus = 153 points x 2.4 = 367 Avios.

    • thanks for explaining – i guess we’re all stashing ready for a 2x conversion bonus on avios then ….

  13. More ethical than the fellow on FT who bought lots of chicken nuggets or something and brought them to the dumpster!
