REMINDER: Get 10,000 Avios for opening an ISA with Nutmeg

It is a couple of weeks since I first mentioned this, so I thought it was worth a reminder that wealth management group Nutmeg has brought back its generous Avios offer, just a month after the previous offer closed.

You will receive up to 10,000 Avios points when you open a Stocks & Shares ISA or a pension with Nutmeg before 30th November. 

Full details can be found on the Nutmeg website here.

As I wrote back in September, Nutmeg is an innovative online wealth management service which offers a fully managed, discretionary, investment service at a far lower cost than its competitors.  If you are using St James’s Place, Hargreaves Lansdown etc then the Nutmeg fee structure of 0.3% – 0.95% should be of interest.

Nutmeg Avios promotion

Using exchange-traded funds, which keep your costs to a minimum, Nutmeg claims to offer no fixed fees, no transaction fees, no trading or commission fees and no exit fees.  You only pay your annual management fee.

Your money will be invested in “a robust, diversified portfolio that spreads risk across asset classes, geographies and industries.”  Your Money has voted Nutmeg the ‘best online Stocks and Shares ISA provider’ for two years in a row.

How much do I need to invest?

The minimum contribution is £500 with additional monthly contributions of £100.  This will earn you a bonus of 5,000 Avios points.

If make an initial lump sum contribution of £5,000 or more, you will receive a bonus of 10,000 Avios.

The maximum you are allowed to invest in an ISA per tax year is £15,240.  Anything you commit beyond that will be placed in a general investment account.

This offer is valid for applications made until 30th November.  Your bonus can be credited to either an or British Airways Executive Club account and you will receive your Avios within 45 days of making your initial investment.

Here is the small print if you close your account:

If a customer withdraws their account balance within 12 months of opening their account, in the event of 5000 Avios being issued, Nutmeg reserves the right to withdraw £50 from the closing balance before returning funds. In the event of 10,000 Avios being issued, Nutmeg reserves the right to withdraw £100 from the closing balance before returning funds.

You need to apply via this special landing page to earn Avios.  Applications via the standard Nutmeg home page will not earn any points.

Remember that, as with all investments, the value of your portfolio can go down as well as up.

    How many months do you need to pay in? T&C don’t seem to say only that you can’t withdraw it

    • As far as i know (i have an ISA with Nutmeg opened with this offer), you need to stay at least one year with them. If you withdraw earlier they will charge you 50£ if you invested less than 5000£ (and you received 5000 Avios from them) or 100£ if you invested more than 5000£ (and you received 10000 Avios).
      Hope this may help

    Does anybody think that the Uber codes will work TO the airport or only FROM the airport?
