Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Was dead, now working again!: 2,400 Avios [currently 3,600!] when you pre-order ‘Diablo 3’

Tesco Direct is now accepted pre-order for ‘Diablo III’ on PlayStation 3.  This may mean something to you, although frankly it means nothing to me!

What DOES interest me is that Tesco is offering 1,000 bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order a copy for £40.  That is worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Flying Club miles, plus the base points from the purchase.

Diablo

The key here is what you can get for the game when it is released, in order to recoup some of your costs.  Tesco only accepts pre-orders from games which it expects to be massive hits, so in theory you should be able to resell it easily.  You could use ebay or sell directly to CEx.

If you could get £30 for it on ebay (so, say, £25 net of all postage, ebay and Paypal costs) then you would have paid £15 for 2,400 Avios, which is a pretty decent deal.

The link to the game on Playstation 3 is here.  It is released on September 3rd, but Tesco will charge you immediately and add your 1,000 bonus Clubcard points straight away.

You can also pre-order the Xbox version here although that is not released until December!  The price is also £40.

It is worth noting that the 1,000 bonus points comprises a 500 point bonus for pre-ordering Diablo III and a 500 point bonus for spending over £30 on pre-order video games in general.  This latter deal will also kick in if you buy any other pre-order game.

    I used a code TDXR-THNR on Tesco direct for £5 off >£20 spend which brings the price down even further. Not sure if that code is targeted at me, or whether anyone can use it?

      Doesn’t work for me: “This eCoupon is linked to another customer account and it can only be used in that account. “

    • bookish says:

      I have the same code in my latest round of coupons. Suspect it is linked to your account?

  • Craig says:

    Does anybody know when the game is actually released? The Xbox version says 30 Dec and the PS3 version has 3 Sept…

    • Rob says:

      Both versions are actually Sep 3rd. New Years Eve is not a clever time to release a game, missing Christmas!

  • Neil says:

    Just ordered one of each – it’s still giving 1500 bonus CC points with both versions of the game. If you want to do this, you need to do two separate orders rather than ordering the PS3 and XBox games at the same time. Putting them both on the same order only gives 2000 bonus points as opposed to 3000 if done separately.

    It’s now giving 2000 CC points per order !! Just ordered a few for the wife and I lol – at 4800 avios per game it’s fill your boots time !!

  • JimmyG says:

    The extra points – 2000 CC per order still working at 2.47am!

    Fingers crossed they honour it!
