It’s back – 500 Clubcard points (1,200 Avios) for joining TopCashback

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

It’s back! If you missed this deal when it ran earlier in the year, now is your chance to jump on board.

TopCashback, like Quidco, is a site which allows you to earn a small amount of cashback on your day to day shopping by clicking through to participating merchants.

What makes TopCashback better is that it has a feature allowing you to pay your cashback directly into your Tesco Clubcard account – and give you a 5% bonus on top!

This dramatically increased the value of TopCashback cashback versus Quidco:

£10 of cashback earned at Quidco earns you £10

£10 of cashback earned at TopCashback earns you £10.50 (with the 5% bonus) paid into your Tesco Clubcard account. That gives you 1,050 Clubcard points. These convert into 2,520 Avios points or 2,625 Virgin Flying Club miles. You are effectively ‘buying’ Avios points for just 0.4p each.

I have had a ‘refer a friend’ link to TopCashback on the site for a while, and I am grateful to everyone who used it. If you haven’t already joined up, there is now a generous incentive.

Until 10am on 27th May, if you join TopCashback via our refer-a-friend link, you will receive 500 Clubcard points when you have earned £10 of cashback. You must use a refer-a-friend link or you will not receive the bonus.


There is no time limit on how long you have to earn your £10 cashback – a month, three months, six months, whatever. You therefore have little to lose, if you are not already a member, by signing up now.

Note that your 500 points are not deposited directly into your Clubcard account. Once you have earned £10 cashback, TopCashback will put a further £5 in your TopCashback account. However, you can only withdraw this £5 to your Tesco Clubcard account.

You can transfer up to £50 of cashback per year from TopCashback to Clubcard (a year runs from the date of your first Tesco transfer, not the calendar year or from the date you joined). This means that you can earn up to 12,000 Avios per year this way! Your £5 / 500 point sign-up bonus does NOT count towards your £50 per year cap.

Once you have hit your £50 annual cap on transferring to Clubcard, you can transfer further cashback directly to Avios points if you want. For every £1 of cashback you earn, you will have the choice of taking £1 as cash into Paypal or your bank account or receiving 105 Avios points.

The only condition is that you join via a refer-a-friend link. If you sign up directly on the TopCashback site, you will not receive your 500 Clubcard points.

What next?

If you are not already a TopCashback member, you should open a TopCashback account now and use it for your day-to-day online shopping instead of Quidco.

(If you are already a member, why not refer your partner – as long as they have their own Clubcard account – via your own refer-a-friend link, which you can find on the TopCashback site?)

There are two membership levels at TopCashback – a free version and a £5 annual fee version. The £5 level pays slightly higher cashback and has improved customer service if you have any problems. However, you will receive the 500 Clubcard points whichever level you choose. To be honest, I would start at the free level and only upgrade when you have decided that you like the site.

The terms and conditions of the offer can be found here.  When you click through to join, you will probably not see this offer advertised.  Don’t worry – all ‘refer a friend’ applications made before 27th May will receive the 500 points.

You may want to take a look at some of ‘easy money’ offers on TopCashback, or even their ‘free money’ offers. If you know what you are doing, some of the gambling and bingo sites offer effectively free money for signing up and betting a small minimum. You can minimise losses by having your partner sign up and then taking opposite win/lose bets on the same sporting event.

I receive a commission for referring you, once you have triggered your bonus, which helps to support HFP. Thank you.

  1. Talking about clubcard…I have 3000 BA avios sitting there since last february and it has never posted into my BA account, any explanation for that? I did the automatic conversion, it shows on my clubcard account that I have got 3040 avios but it doesnt seem to indicate how and when this will post into BA, could someone advice?

    • Raffles says:

      Hi Marly. Sorry, can you clarify – do you mean you have 3000 Clubcard points in your Tesco account to convert? Or do you mean you have (3000/2.4) 1250 Clubcard points not converting?

      • Sorry Rob, I meant I have 1250 clubcard points and on my clubcard page I have a section at the top showing my clubcard points and a section at the bottom showing the equivalent in BA avios

    OT- But related to CC points…..

    I have just come across a huge stack of the re-branded 3v cards (PAY.COM) in my local Tesco! No doubt coming to a store near you, keep your eyes open!

  3. Hehe kinda means what it says 😉 If you’ve currently got, or in the last six months have had, either the BA free Amex or the BA Premium Amex then you’d be ineligible. The Preferred Rewards Gold that you have is find though, as it earns Membership Rewards points. Those are of course transferable to Avios, but Amex views it different to those that earn directly in Avios.

  4. Thanks Tim, it was the clubcard number that was missing not sure how it happened perhaps because I switched to auto convert of clubcard points to Virgin for a quarter to take advantage of the 1,000 points bonus, will see if the change has been made in 72 hours as got to wait that long before requesting a payout
