Bits: Tallinn BA tier point run, 10% Clubcard to Virgin transfer bonus, 500 Avios with Iberia wine offer

News in brief:

Tallinn tier point run on BA

Tallinn is being launched by British Airways as a new route next year as we wrote over the weekend.

In the meantime, British Airways is running a very attractive offer if you want to check out the city.

For £234, ba.com will sell you a Business Class return flight from Heathrow to Tallinn.  You can fly on either BA or Finnair.  This will earn you 200 tier points for the return trip because you need to change planes in Helsinki for a Finnair ‘all economy’ connection.

Even better, selected Finnair flights between Heathrow and Helsinki are operated by long-haul A350 aircraft which means you will get a flat bed!  I reviewed the Finnair A350 here and it is VERY impressive.

This is a very attractive deal which gets you a weekend away in a very attractive city and give you a leg up towards status (re)qualification.  Pop over to ba.com and have a play around with dates.

Tesco to Virgin transfer bonus launched

Virgin Atlantic has launched a transfer bonus if you convert your Tesco Clubcard points – 10%!

I’m not sure what prompted them to offer something so weak.  20%-25%, which we have seen recently, seems like a minimum bonus to make it worth the effort.  An extra 10% of anything will never make a bad deal into a good deal.

At least there is some bonus, which will be a small benefit to anyone desperately trying to top up their Virgin Atlantic account before a lot of redemptions go up in price on 16th January.

You can find full details here.  The deadline to convert is 13th November.

500 Avios with Iberia wine deal

In the absence of any codes for bonus Clubcard points on Tesco Wine deals, you may be interested in this new Iberia Plus wine offer.

Via their UK wine partner Vinoseleccion, you can order a six bottle of case of two wines for half the usual price – £50 instead of £100 – and receive 500 Avios and get free delivery.

Remember that you will need an Iberia Plus account to receive the Avios, which can later be transferred into British Airways Executive Club or avios.com.

  1. The Tallinn flights are no longer on BA.com?

  2. Morning Rob, Everyone 🙂 does a BA Holiday to Tallinn count for a points run if I book Business class? e.g., will it get me the same amount of tier points (sorry if a silly question!)

    • Yes, you still get TPs on flights booked through BA holidays. Hotels booked as part of the holiday would not (normally) accrue status credits/points.

  3. Can anyone still find that fare? Seems like it’s gone. 🙁
