Yesterday I wrote about how to earn 5,000 Clubcard points with Tesco Life Insurance. However, Tesco is also running a second promotion at the moment. This lets you earn 2,000 bonus Clubcard points (4,800 Avios or 5,000 Flying Club miles) when you take out their home insurance.
The rules are simple:
Apply by 24th September
Quote code 2000HOME
Must buy combined buildings and contents insurance (so renters are disqualified)
The points are posted immediately, not over the course of the year. However, you are obviously paying for the full year of cover up front anyway.
Whilst you should obviously shop around for a product like this, it could be a decent deal. If you value 4,800 Avios at, say, £50 then that is a sizeable rebate on the cost. The Tesco website says that 60% of its customers have a premium of £195 or less.
A new code has emerged for 1,000 bonus Clubcard points when you spend £50 on groceries from Tesco online. The code is XXJKTT. This code can only be used by someone who has not previously ordered from Tesco online groceries – but if you have multiple Clubcards, you may well have one which has not already been used.
PS. Don’t forget that Tesco also offers 1,000 bonus Clubcard points when you take out one of their credit cards via a referral. The Tesco MasterCard has the highest Avios earnings rate of any Visa or MasterCard – click here to read my review and for details of how I can refer you. You can even get the points if you have already got the card, as long as you applied in the last three months.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 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.
