Avios Ireland: 100% bonus on SuperValu transfers into Avios!

Whilst Tesco has a major presence in Ireland, AerClub has teamed up with supermarket chain SuperValu.

You earn one Real Rewards point for every €1 you spend in SuperValu.  You can convert Real Rewards points into Avios at the rate of 1:1.  This makes it roughly half as generous as the Tesco partnership which gets you 2.4 Avios per £1 spent.

Until 30th April, however, there are two 100% bonus offers running.  During this month you will get:

1 Real Rewards point = 2 Avios points

€2.50 Money Back Voucher = 500 Avios points

The minimum transfer level is 50 Real Rewards points or a €2.50 Money Back Voucher.

Full details can be found on the AerClub site here.

SuperValu

SuperValu partnership opens up a Bank of Ireland Avios card option

Don’t forget that, if you have a Bank of Ireland personal credit card, you can now leverage this to earn a handful of Avios points on your day to day spending.

If you link your Bank of Ireland credit card to your SuperValu Real Rewards account, you will receive:

1 Real Rewards point for every €1 you spend in SuperValu on your credit card

1 Real Rewards point for every €10 you spend elsewhere

Frankly, 1 Avios point per €10 spent is weak.  It even makes the 0.25 – 0.3 Avios per £1 on UK Visa and MasterCard products look good.  However, if you’re doing the spending anyway, you might as well get some rewards.

The SuperValu / Bank of Ireland partnership is outlined here.

  1. SuperValu also operate here in Northern Ireland. Can we residents here earn EI avios from this I wonder? I already convert my Tesco points to BA Avios but this would add to it, as I shop in both!

  2. Nope, unfortunately the rewards scheme doesnt operate in n.i.

  3. OT Expecting the answer- NO: Is there any way to get avios or other reward points when payment has to be with a debit card or bank transfer? I’m shortly to make 2x 10k payments which can’t be by credit card and the thought of not getting points is breaking my little HfP-trained heart.

    • Genghis says:

      Not sure of the nature of the payment but have you tried Curve? Sometimes goes through as a debit card.

      Other than that, pointless

    • Tesco debit card (as long as not for a financial transaction) would be an option…

      • Seconded. Despite opening mine basically as a ‘savings’ account I find I do actually use the debit card a fair bit for anything I can’t do either on a credit card or through contactless (for TSB 5% cashback). I refused to bother with Curve.

    • Thanks to all who replied.

  4. On the subject of poor earning/conversion rates:

    when the Daily Mail/MOS monster switches its daily back page number from Mailpoints to Nectar, the rates will be:

    1 Nectar point = 2 Mail Points
    1,000 Nectar points = 2,000 Mail Points

    Not sure how ell this will go down with Mail readers who were using their points for Tesco, M&S vouchers etc, as they’re now locked into Nectar.

    • RussellH says:

      Note: nowhere on the MyMail website (where you actually enter the 12 digit codes from the back of Daily Mail/MOS) does it say that you have to actually pay for the papers… The code from the back of each copy of the MOS is worth 25p in M+S vouchers. The only Tesco gift card we ever got from them had never been loaded with any value, but the M+S ones work fine.

      Our nerarest supermarket is Sainsbury, so we have an outlet for Nectar, but M+S is a sort of treat…
