Tesco Direct has launched another attractive pre-order deal for a ‘soon to be released’ entertainment product.
This time, it is for John Whaite’s new cookbook, “John Whaite Bakes”. John won the Great British Bake Off in 2012 …. apparently.
Anyway, I’m sure he’s a great bloke, whoever he is. Tesco loves him enough to be offering his new book for just £10, a 50% discount. You also receive 400 bonus Clubcard points!
400 Clubcard points are worth 960 Avios or 1,000 Virgin Flying Club miles, which makes the book a good deal even if you give it to Oxfam. Although your Mum would probably like it.
Unfortunately, there seems to be an issue with the Tesco website at the time of writing.
As per this link you can clearly see the book advertised with 400 bonus Clubcard points. However, on the order page, it is not mentioned. You would expect to see the 400 bonus points showing when you click ‘pre-order’, but it only shows the 10 base points.
Keep an eye on this page, though, because Tesco will presumably fix the glitch soon. Alternatively, order now and keep a screen shot showing the 400 Clubcard points offer so you can ring up to claim them if / when they do not post automatically.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (February 2024)
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. These points convert at 1:1 into Avios.
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 10,500 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.
