Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

1,500 Avios auto-convert bonus arrives …. and an Avios / Shell / Avis promotion

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (www.shopperpoints.co.uk), which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

Last month, Avios was offering a 1,500 Avios points if you turned on auto-convert in your Tesco Clubcard account to automatically send your Clubcard points to avios.com each quarter.

A quick heads up that my 1,500 points posted yesterday, so check your avios.com account if you also signed up for this.

Now, as I wrote last week, Tesco messed up when they sent Avios the data file sending the names of people who had activated auto-convert.  I don’t know if this will impact the receipt of the bonus or not, although I have mine.

Don’t forget to turn off the auto-convert in your Tesco account if you don’t want future points to be automatically sent over!

Shell Drivers Club

Whilst I was in my avios.com, I also noticed a special promotion from Shell, apparently targeted at anyone who has ever received Avios points from Shell Drivers Club.

You will have a voucher in your avios.com account offering you £35 off an Avis car rental booked via the avios.com website.  There are no conditions about minimum rental length, so for a short rental you could get a bargain.  You must book by 2nd July for a rental date up to 30th November.

    Do you think they will be running this promotion again at some point? Just discovered this blog – will be checking daily!

      Something similar tends to run a few times a year. Keep an eye on Head for Points each day and you’ll be ready to jump in next time!
