Avios.com has been emailing selected holders of the Lloyds TSB Avios credit cards with a special offer to earn 4,500 bonus Avios.
The promotion is very simple (for once, given Lloyds track record):
Register by 30th June
Spend £200 on the Amex card during June, July and August (this is calendar month, irrespective of your statement start and end dates)
Receive 4,500 bonus Avios
In theory, this offer is targeted. However, if you go here and log-in, then it will say that you are registered.
This doesn’t mean that you will definitely receive the bonus Avios points, of course. However, if you have the card and will achieve the £200 of monthly Amex spending anyway then you have nothing to lose.
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.
