Excellent Avios / Virgin and Tesco deal – act NOW for very cheap miles

(EDIT: Tesco appears to have pulled this offer from its website, even though it was meant to run until late June.)

Tesco Direct has launched an exceptional new promotion on HP printer inks.

This is so generous that I cannot imagine it lasting long and may even be an error.

You receive 1,000 Tesco Clubcard points for every HP printer ink you buy.  Those points convert into 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Atlantic miles.

The cheapest ink in stock is £12!

Even if you throw the inks in the bin, you are only paying 0.5p per Avios point and a little less for the Virgin miles.  However, these inks sell perfectly well on eBay so you should be able to recoup much of your £12!

You can combine this offer with ‘money off’ discount codes, eg £10 off £75, which show on the individual ink pages online. Your miles will get even cheaper.

You even get FREE ‘click and collect’ delivery to your nearest Tesco store.

HP Inks

BE CAREFUL.   Remember that Tesco caps Clubcard accounts at 30,000 points per quarter.  They have also been known to remove points for ‘excessive’ buying, although as these inks are consumables they would be on sticky ground here.

I recommend ordering sooner rather than later.

The list of inks available is here on the Tesco site.

  1. The offer is now back up, but sadly it looks like someone may have added an extra zero the 1st time around, as its now 100 club card points
