Avios Ireland: Triple Avios in AerClub with SuperValu!

As a reminder, our coverage of Avios Ireland (AerClub) is exclusively on the Head for Points website.  You will not receive these articles via our daily emails unless it is a deal which UK residents can take part in.

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

We have written about the relationship between SuperValu and AerClub a few times.


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 31st August, however you will get triple Avios when converting Real Rewards points into Avios

This means 1 Real Rewards point is worth 3 Avios!  All the UK Tesco Clubcard collectors will be jealous ….

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.

  1. Do any of our resident Irish members have info on credit card bonus Amex or mc or visa, opportunities in Ireland atm? My sis is desperate to join in this hobby, but just cannot earn enough at super value alone. I have directed her to BOI card for ongoing spend, but doesn’t appear to be any Amex bonus activity at all over there. Shame really. Thanks in advance.

  2. Ireland has tight regulations against promos’/earning on CCs so theres a VERY limited number of ways to earn any meaningful points. In not an expert but this is what I believe is possible;

    1. Amex internaitonal currency card – MR possible
    2. BOI business card – gets you access to Aer Lingus lounges / fast track
    3. Tesco Clubcard (if you have a UK clubcard, you earn 1 point per euro in store and 1 point per 2 euro on petrol, but NOTHING on an irish clubcard [they have their own clubcard boost which is rubbish])
    4. Supervalu
    5. Buy via TCB UK and use parcel motel to deliver to ROI for alot cheaper delivery costs.

    I am lucky to have a UK tesco card and put a lot of food/petrol through it per month which brings in a good few avois

    • Tnx Rob and Stuart, worth thinking about. As l told her, it takes much planning and orgnisation to get to the stage of even getting a single avios flt over there it seems. Even as long term gold circle members it was next to useless. We never seemed to earn enough miles. Hope aer club fare better. Don’t have much faith. But the Amex card will be an interesting option.

      David, isn’t that a sad experience you just had. Esp the NYC route, it’s usually very good.

  3. Just back from NY and possibly my last BA redemption for a long time. Crew didn’t bother offering us breakfast and the lounge just appears to be toast – more Cruz cuts. Guess I’ll be collecting Virgin Atlantic from now on.
