Last month, Avios was offering 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!
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.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (January 2023)
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:
SPECIAL OFFER: Until 21st February 2023, the sign-up bonus on the British Airways Premium Plus American Express card is increased to 35,000 Avios from 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
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 10,500 Avios.
SPECIAL OFFER: Capital On Tap has increased its sign-up bonus to points worth 30,000 Avios if you apply by 4th February. This is exclusive to Head for Points readers. Click here to apply.
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.
