    I have 400 tesco points on one account right now, if I auto opt in today, will I get exactly 1937 VS miles by the 31st of August and no more?

    Do you know if the VS account needs to be registered in the UK for this to work? Or do they need the exact same name? (I know there are various problems with the name and address when converting to

    This is perfect for me as I currently have 18064 VS miles, plus 1937 = 20001 which will give me 40K HH points and I can close my VS account, since I fly BA now. Want to minimise waste as much as possible (although considering wasting ink just to get the points on another ac for the other promotion!)
