Tesco is running another competition this quarter for people who convert their Clubcard vouchers to Avios.
This competition is targeted, and if you have not received an email about it then you are not pre-qualified to enter.
Basically, if you convert £10 of Clubcard voucher to 2,400 Avios points by 31st August, you will be entered into a competition. There are 50 prizes, each of 10,000 Avios.
Now, the key thing to note here is that the transfer needs to be to avios.com, not to British Airways Executive Club. You can move your Avios across to BA later using ‘Combine My Avios’ but the initial transfer must be to avios.com.
So, is this worth a go?
I have two takes on this.
If you were planning to transfer your Clubcard vouchers to BA, you have nothing to lose by sending them to avios.com instead and moving them to BA. You might be a winner!
If you were planning to save your Clubcard vouchers for a 50% ‘Clubcard to Avios’ conversion bonus, then I wouldn’t bother.
Let’s assume you value Avios at 1p each. By converting £10 of vouchers to 2,400 Avios, you are losing a potential £12 if a 50% conversion bonus comes along soon. Using the same valuation, the prize of 10,000 Avios is only worth £100.
You are effectively giving up £12 for a chance to win £100 (assuming that there IS another conversion bonus at some point) and I don’t consider this a good deal.
