Tesco Direct has launched another pre-order promotion on up-coming CD’s and DVD’s.
You get 150 bonus points (360 Avios, 375 Virgin miles) for every product you order. The cheapest product is a Bon Jovi CD, coming in at £5. Assuming you do ‘click and collect’ to avoid postage charges, this works out at 1.38p per Avios less whatever you can resell the CD for!
£5 is the same price that Amazon is charging, so you should be able to recoup a couple of £ via eBay.
Tesco has recently taken its Tesco Entertainment division back in-house, so hopefully the historic problems with the posting of bonus points from Entertainment (ie they never did post!) will be a thing of the past. The points for this promotion do show in your basket at check-out.
You may also be able to combine this promotion with code TD-KNTW for £5 off a £35 Tesco Entertainment order. This code expires on 11th November.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
