Avios.com and Shell have launched a special promotion to ‘celebrate’ the launch of new Shell V-Power Nitro+ Unleaded and Diesel.
Until June 3rd, Shell is offering 4x the usual Avios when you buy Nitro+ fuel with your Shell Drivers Club card, assuming you have set up your Shell Drivers Club card to convert points directly to Avios.
The normal earning rate is 10 Avios points for 20 litres of Shell fuel. With Nitro+, you will receive 40 Avios per 20 litres.
Full details are here on the avios.com website. It is not clear if this also works when sending your Avios to British Airways Executive Club rather than avios.com.
