If you convert £5 or more of Tesco Clubcard vouchers to Avios (via British Airways Executive Club) before 30th June, you will receive a bonus of 1,000 Avios points.
The terms and conditions are slightly contradictory. They start off by saying:
“1000 Avios bonus offer is open to customers who have not previously exchanged Clubcard vouchers for Avios”
but carry on to say:
“Customers who have exchanged Clubcard vouchers since 29 April 2012 are not eligible for the bonus but will earn standard Avios.”
The latter is presumably correct.
It is unlikely that many Head for Points readers will qualify for this promotion, but if you usually convert your vouchers to avios.com then it would make sense to convert them via British Airways Executive Club this quarter. You can combine Avios points across the two schemes by using ‘Combine My Avios’ under ‘My Account’ on the BA website.
Full details of this promotion can be found at ba.com but you must be logged in. Look under ‘Executive Club Offers’ under the ‘Executive Club’ tab.
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.
