2,000 Avios for £8.74 is not a bad deal. And you don’t even need to leave the house for this one, should you be sick of visiting Tesco stores trying to find 3V cards ….
You can even get something potentially more valuable for your £8.74, like a £20 Waitrose voucher.
Let me explain the deal
Mighty Deals is a daily deals site run by www.moneyexpert.com. Money Expert is a price comparison website which owns Simply Switch amongst other things.
Until Monday, they are promoting this offer:
The headline is misleading.
It looks like you are paying £10 for a £20 Shell fuel voucher. However, when you read the small print, you are not. You are paying £10 for a Shell Drivers Club membership card which comes pre-loaded with 4,000 points.
Now, you can – if you want – redeem those 4,000 Shell Drivers Club points for a £20 fuel voucher. However, you can also redeem them for:
2,000 Avios points
£20 Waitrose voucher (note: Waitrose only, not John Lewis)
£20 to exchange for gift cards at your local Shell garage
How do I order?
Remember that you can now transfer TopCashback money to Tesco Clubcard, so that £1.26 gets you 126 Clubcard points which gets you an extra 300 Avios.
(If you are not a TopCashback member, this link allows you to sign up under me for their ‘refer a friend’ promotion, for which I am grateful).
You will need to create an account at Mighty Deals before you can order. They accept Visa or MasterCard but not Amex or PayPal.
Once you order, you receive an email saying that you will receive your Shell Drivers Club card in the next 10 days.
Once you have registered your Shell Drivers Club card and set your earnings preference to Avios, your 4,000 points should transfer across at the end of the next quarter, which is 30th June.
If you select the Waitrose vouchers instead, you will also have to wait until 30th June for those to be issued.
What if I already have a Shell Drivers Club card?
I don’t know, to be honest. Frankly, the Shell Drivers Club website is antiquated and is unlikely to spot or block duplicate accounts. I have gone ahead and ordered with no worries.
The deadline for ordering this deal is Bank Holiday Monday.
PS. Mighty Deals has, looking online, had issues in the past because it sold deals offered by merchants who were ‘dubious’. You should bear this in mind, but also remember that Money Expert (the parent) is a respectable business. Shell is also clearly a respectable partner. Bearing this in mind, I still feel happy to promote this deal.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 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.
