    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?

    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!)
