Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

News from the beach: Avios Suitcase / Tesco Wine bonus / Free Club Carlson Gold

I would normally have covered these deals in more depth, but we are still on holiday and I don’t have the time to do full posts!

Avios Suitcase

Yes, you’re rich! A new ‘sticker’ worth a whole 10 Avios points is now available if you watch a video.

(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, start here in this post.)

Avios Suitcase

50 bonus points per bottle of Tesco wine in Scotland

Until 27 April, Tesco has brought back its offer of 50 Clubcard points when you buy wine.  This is only available in Scotland, because the new pricing laws for alcohol there mean that Tesco can no longer offer cash discounts beyond a certain level.

This new offer appears to work on any bottle of wine, not just Tesco Finest.

The cheapest item seems to be this very dodgy Black Tower stuff at £1.19, which would be 1p per Avios even if you pour it down the sink (which may be the best option!).  Scotland only, remember.

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (, which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

Free Club Carlson Gold

This offer (deleted as now dead) was targetted at specific American Express cardholders but is working for anyone.  If you open a new Club Carlson account, it will be opened at Gold level.  This will give you decent additional benefits on your next Radisson, Park Inn or Park Plaza sale.  Importantly, you will also be able to book their special ‘2 for 1’ and ‘4 for 2’ weekend packages which often offer great deals.

    Apparently this dodgy Black Tower stuff at £1.19 also triggers the 50 Clubcard points! (Scotland only, remember)

        I Saw that. Wouldnt risk a kicking off the missus to save 30p though 🙂
        We are just back from 10 days Costa Del Sol, so I thought it was worth the risk slipping a Spanish white in.
