Anyone who has followed various reports on Head for Points about the Lloyds Duo Avios credit cards will know that they have suffered from some customer service failings. However, the 20,000 Avios sign-up bonus on the Premier Duo card was attractive.
The latest sign-up bonus ended yesterday. This was a pretty decent one, as long as you were prepared to jump through the various hoops required to qualify. But, as of yesterday, there is no sign-up bonus at all. See here for example.
This is a little odd, especially as BA continues to give out a bonus on their Avios cards. If you were interested in these cards, give it a few weeks. I’m sure something new will be along.
