6,105 Avios for £44 – and a FREE colour printer! (but in and out of stock)

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?

Tesco Direct is running another printer offer which, amazingly, is an even better deal than the one which ran a couple of weeks ago!

Tesco Direct is currently offering 2,500 bonus Clubcard points when you buy a HP Envy 4504 wireless colour inkjet printer.

The price is £44.  ‘Click and Collect’ delivery is FREE otherwise you will pay £3 for standard delivery to your door.

The link to buy is here.  The deal is valid until 3rd December.

At the time of writing, it is out of stock.  However, it was coming and going throughout Saturday so I would keep checking back over the next few days.

Let me explain how silly this deal is.

You do not need to spend a penny to take advantage of this!

At the moment, you can get double the face value of your Clubcard points when you spend them at Tesco Direct.  This is what you do:

You buy the printer for £44 and pay using 2,200 Clubcard points (assuming you have £22 of vouchers in your account)

You receive 2,544 points for buying the printer

You have earned 344 Clubcard points and got yourself a printer – FOR FREE.

However, let’s assume that you want to earn some cheap Avios points via this deal instead.  I’ll assume that you take the printer and throw it in the nearest dustbin (or, preferably, give it your local charity shop).

You will earn a total of 2,544 Clubcard points for the purchase.  This will get you 6,105 Avios points or 6,360 Virgin Flying Club miles.

That works out at 0.72p per Avios point or 0.69p per Virgin Flying Club mile.

If you don’t want to use the points for airline miles, this page on our sister site Shopper Points shows the best value Tesco Clubcard Boost redemptions.

If you are prepared to put in some time, of course, you can get this price down by selling your printer via eBay.

Let’s assume that you are left with just £10 after eBay fees and postage in a worse case scenario.  That takes your cost down to £34.  That would work out at 0.55p per Avios point or 0.53p per Virgin mile.

Remember that Tesco takes a dim view of bulk buying.  If you buy more than one through the same Clubcard account, you are at serious risk of not getting the points.  HFP readers have been caught out by this many times in the past.  The deal does not appear to be available in-store.

To be honest, you will need to be lucky to nab one of these.  However, as the offer does not close until Thursday, there is plenty of time. The link is here.

  1. (Sorry to comment here, but comments on the relevant article appear to be closed). I converted £100 clubcard deal to Avios mid November, I can see that the 24,000 Avios were credited on 27 November but my 4800 bonus Avios haven’t been credited. Is anyone else still waiting?

    So, tonight I get a stock alert email for this printer and happily click through… only to find that the 2500 bonus points have miraculously disappeared.

    My belief in Tesco’s integrity is in the toilet right now… :(((((((
