Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New Tesco CD pre-order deals for 360 Avios or 375 Virgin miles

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Tesco Direct has launched another raft of bonus Clubcard point deals on various CD pre-orders.

The CD’s sell for between £10 and £13 and you will receive 360 Avios (ie 150 Clubcard points) for each title you buy.  Now 88 offers 200 points so 480 Avios or 500 Virgin miles.

This means, clearly, that these CDs are NOT worth buying purely for the points.  If you were planning to get the title anyway, on the other hand, it is a good deal.

Here are the titles available, listed by expiry date:

La Roux – Trouble In Paradise (ends TODAY, 7th July)

Now 88 (ends 20th July)

The Pierces – Creation (ends 31st August)

Ella Henderson – Chapter One (ends 21st September)

Morrissey – World Peace Is None Of Your Business (ends 21st September)
