100 Avios if you persuade a Clubcard-collecting friend of the wonders of avios.com

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?

Is avios.com feeling the pressure, post devaluation, of persuading Tesco Clubcard collectors of the wonders of the scheme?

It may be, because they have come up with one of the least rewarding refer-a-friend deals ever seen :-)

If you can persuade a Tesco Clubcard-carrying friend to convert vouchers for the first time to avios.com, you will receive 100 bonus Avios points.  Your friend will also receive 100 bonus Avios points.  Control your excitement at the back …

Note that you CAN take advantage of this offer if you have previously converted to British Airways Executive Club.  All that matters is that you have not converted into an avios.com account before.

Avios refer a friend

Keen to trip you up, the promotion comes with complex rules:

You, as referrer, MUST have previously converted Clubcard points to avios.com

Your friend MUST NEVER have previously converted Clubcard points to avios.com

Your friend must not be a member of an avios.com Household Account

You must know the email address which your friend has linked to their Tesco Clubcard account and also the email address linked to your Clubcard account

To trip you up further, the email promoting this scheme says that

“they get 100 bonus Avios for the first time they exchange £10 of vouchers”

However, the small print says:

“You will be awarded 100 Avios for every friend who exchanges a minimum of £2.50 in Tesco Clubcard vouchers for Avios”

And if the bonus Avios points don’t post for either of you?

“no correspondence will be entered into.”

However, it isn’t quite that bad!

There is a competition linked to this process which makes it slightly more interesting.

If your friend makes their first conversion before 26th June, you will both be entered into a competition.  Four winners will each share 200,000 Avios points between the referrer and the referred person whilst 600 runners-up will each share 2,000 Avios points.

This sweetens the deal a bit.

Whether your friend needs to convert £2.50 or £10 of vouchers to enter, of course, is still up for debate!  The competition rules do mention £2.50 but the covering email says £10.  I would assume £2.50.

If you want to earn you 100 Avios for referring a friend, the referral website is here.  Thanks to Dan for this.

Please note that every Avios reference on this page refers to avios.com and NOT British Airways Executive Club.  Your friend need to be a first-time converter into avios.com and you must have previously converted into avios.com (not BAEC) in order to make a referral.

If you have never converted into avios.com before and want to take advantage of this offer, I can refer you if you don’t know another referrer.  Email me at raffles at headforpoints.co.uk with your first name, last name and email address – this MUST match the email address on your Tesco Clubcard account.  Please give me 24 hours to get back to you.

  1. Hahah what a great offer, kudos avios.com, I’m sold!

  2. Great idea! Follow BA s LCC rebranding with their own version.

    Hardly an incentive considering you can usually clear 100 avios when a new Avios suitcase sticker arrives!

    • Exactly my thoughts too! Seems a lot of effort when you can answer a couple of reward for thoughts/e-rewards surveys or collect a sticker for the same reward!

      Perhaps they missed a couple of 00’s of the end!

    • hup!

    As this offer is such a joke – OT

    It appears Head for Points has hit the big time in the Travelex world appearing on the “featured in” banner next to Reuters and Mailonline. https://www.supercard.io/

    I have noticed a letter from American Express stating that in order for them to maintain BA card they have to increase APR from 19.99 to 29.99%.

    This means that the pool of users and transactions on BA card(s) have been shrinking considerably.

    • I have an offer on my BA amex offering 2.99% for a year, so maybe its different for each person?

    • James67 says:

      Anybody know if amex ever offers extra points offers in an effort to stimulate activity on inactive accounts? I’ve had barclaycard do that so I’m considering suspending use of some of my cards a few months to see what happens.

    • Odd – website still shows 19.9% on the paid card. Frankly, you are stupid if you run a balance on the BA cards anyway given that there are SUBSTANTIALLY cheaper credit cards out there. People paying interest should NOT be thinking about miles, they should be thinking about a low interest rate.

      It means absolutely nothing of the sort…

    OT; Until 31/5 you can ean double club card points at Esso service stations when you fill up with Esso Supreme petrol or diesel (the expensive fuel) no signs on the pumps or in store, I did not know about it until I filled up my car and the comment was on the docket so I have missed out. It applies to all participating sites.
