It’s good to see that someone at Tesco still has a sense of humour despite the terrible financial results recently.
Blinkbox, Tesco’s ‘video on demand’ subsidiary, is running a new promotion to celebrate the release on ‘video on demand’ of Game of Thrones series four.
For £17.99 in standard definition, you receive:
Game of Thrones Series 4 to stream from Blinkbox
1,000 Tesco Clubcard points (2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club miles)
A voucher for a free Tesco Finest 10 inch pizza!
The offer runs until 31st July and you have until 3rd August to claim your free pizza.
There is also a less interesting offer of 250 Clubcard points for ordering any previous series of Game of Thrones.
Purely for the Avios points, this is not a bad deal. Assuming you value the pizza at its cost price of £5 then you are effectively paying £12.99 for 2,400 Avios – just 0.54p each.
A HP ink deal too ….
This isn’t worth a full post but I will squeeze it in here.
Until July 3rd, Tesco is offering (in-store only) 250 Clubcard points when you buy 2 HP printer inks.
In the past this deal offered 500 points. I once bought the cartridges and resold them on eBay at a small loss but gaining all of the points. This won’t work here as the points are not enough to justify it. If your printer uses HP cartridges you might want to stock up for personal use.
The ink deal runs until July 3rd. It is not available online even for online grocery orders.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2021)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
There are two official British Airways American Express cards. Both have increased sign-up bonuses until 2nd November 2021:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points, such as:

Run your own business?
