Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

1,000 bonus Avios for a Clubcard conversion IF you've not converted for a year!

British Airways has launched a tiny bribe to encourage people to convert their Tesco Clubcard vouchers to Avios points this quarter.

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.

Clubcard vouchers

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.

    So I did this yesterday. Converted £5 CC vouchers to BAEC Avios via the Tesco Clubcard site (didn’t click on the link from BAEC, does that matter?).

    Today, I checked my BAEC account and I’ve only got 1,200 Avios sat there. Hoping that the bonus will be added soon! This is a new BAEC account and this is the first CC redemption I’ve made to it.

    I cannot find this offer showing up anywhere on the BAEC site. I would prefer to take a screenshot before I do the transfer in case I need to argue later. Anyone have any advice how to pull it up? I tried filtering to UK and Ireland but there is no ‘Holiday sooner with 1000 bonus’.
