News in brief:
Tesco makes changes to the Tesco Premium Credit Card
Tesco removed the 2,500 bonus Clubcard points (6,000 Avios or 6,250 Virgin miles) sign-up bonus from the Tesco Premium Credit Card yesterday, as scheduled.
The offer has not been replaced with a new promotion. The other interesting bonus – a £50 discount coupon off a British Airways Club Europe flight – has also gone away as of 31st December.
With the annual fee remaining at £150, it is difficult to recommend this card at the moment unless:
you want the annual travel insurance policy which comes free with it
you spend £5,000 in Tesco, including fuel, per year and would qualify for the 5,000 Clubcard points (12,000 Avios / 12,500 Virgin miles) annual bonus
If neither of these apply to you, I would hold off until a good sign-up bonus comes back.
Full details of the card can be found here. I am obliged to remind you that the representative APR on this card is 56.5% variable, including the £150 annual fee, based on a notional £1200 credit limit.
British Airways drops London City to Madrid and Alicante
BA has dropped the London City to Madrid route due to poor loads. The flight is being pulled with undue haste, with the last service departing on 29th January. Ticket sales were suspended yesterday.
Even more impressively, the Alicante service has been scrapped before it even started! It was due to operate from 26th June to 4th September.
Thanks to Michael.
