Back in June 2012 I wrote about this Tesco promo for buying HP ink cartridges. It seems to come around every few months.

HP 364

Well, the deal is back. Buy 2 cartridges and get 500 bonus Tesco Clubcard points. The cheapest is £8.50 (if it doesn’t show on the list, it is sold out) so £17 for 512 Clubcard points, which is 1,228 Avios. This is roughly 1.5p per Avios point earned, so it only works as a deal if you actually want the cartridges or are happy to sell them on ebay.

You must order the cartridges from Tesco Direct directly, so be careful not to select cartridges being sold by third-party sellers using the Tesco website.

This offer is also available in Tesco stores which sell HP inks.

    So taking the Tesco quarterly limit into account and starting from having earned 1200 points so far this quarter:

    I could then buy 7 orders as suggested by ‘chris’ to earn circa 28700 points, for a ‘cost’ of about £210 once I’d sold each set of 4 cartriges on ebay for £22.95 (not including fees/postage etc). So presuming the whole process works as planned I would earn about 72,000avios from £210? 0.3p/mile is surely worth the effort right?

    Am I missing something?
