On September 1st, I wrote about the Tesco ‘My Kitchen’ promotion, running exclusively on Facebook.
They were giving away 2,000 prizes of 500 points. And, as I wrote originally:
It all sounds a little odd to me! However, one thing is clear – 1 million Clubcard points is a lot of points. And, as this is a new scheme, there are unlikely to be that many people involved at the beginning. Your odds of picking up a prize should not be too bad – there are 2,000 prizes of 500 points.
And, lo and behold, 500 Clubcard points posted for me yesterday. If you took part in this game, have a look at your Clubcard account – you may have a little present waiting for you.
The game is still running, so if you haven’t visited the site yet you still can. Even those who have already won should pop back to try to pick up another 500 points next quarter.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 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.
