Following on from the Lily Allen offer (now ended), Tesco Direct is offering 150 bonus Clubcard points on a few other pre-order CD’s.
This is what seems to be available:
Coldplay – Ghost Stories (150 bonus points for £10, to May 18th)
Michael Jackson – Xscape (150 bonus points for £9, to May 11th)
Ed Sheeran – X (150 bonus points for £10, to June 23rd, deluxe edition also available at £13)
Sam Smith – In The Lonely House (150 bonus points for £9, to May 25th)
Black Keys – Turn Blue (150 bonus points for £10, to May 12th)
All of these items are covered by the Tesco price promise. If Tesco is selling the product at less than the above price on the day of release, you will receive a refund for the difference. This does seem to work OK in my experience.
None of these deals are worth it purely for the Avios or Virgin Flying Club miles (360 Avios, 375 Virgin miles) but it is good value if you were planning to buy it anyway.
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.
