An and Tesco competition – but no sign of a BA or Virgin bonus

(EDIT:  Virgin has now announced a bonus, full analysis tomorrow)

There is, so far, no sign on any British Airways Executive Club or Virgin Flying Club transfer bonus for Tesco Clubcard collectors this quarter.

To be fair, this doesn’t mean there won’t be one.  It just means that it hasn’t appeared yet – which means the odds are against it. and BA are running competitions, however.

The competitions are not life changing but better than a slap in the face.  As the Tesco / page states:

Win 15,000 Avios

We’ve got 25 prizes of 15,000 Avios to give away. To be in with a chance of winning simply exchange £2.50 in Tesco Clubcard vouchers for Avios between 29 January and 29 February 2016. For every £2.50 you exchange, you’ll receive one prize draw entry.

The British Airways competition is different – 1 entry for every £5 you exchange.  This makes me think that they are being run separately and there are two prize pots.

However this does not mean that it is a worse competition as it makes no difference to your odds of winning whether you get one entry per £5, £2.50 or even 1p exchanged!

No word of anything from Virgin …….

  1. BA have just emailed offering “For every £5 in Tesco Clubcard vouchers you exchange for Avios between 1 February and 29 February 2016, you’ll receive one entry into a prize draw to win one of 25 prizes of 15,000 Avios…”

    Not exactly awe inspiring! :-)

  2. Just converted my Tesco points to Avios. Wasn’t asked for my Avios account no. Is it likely that the points will be put in the correct account or will the system create a new one?
