Tesco is really making an effort at the moment to encourage people to use Blinkbox, its digital movie and book service. First we had the chance to earn 100 Clubcard points for buying a £1 ebook (still running) and then 1,000 points and a free pizza when you rent ‘Game of Thrones Season 4’ (also still running).
This new offer is certainly more family-friendly than ‘Game of Thrones’.
Until August 3rd, you will earn 500 Clubcard points (1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles) when you buy ‘The LEGO Movie’ from Blinkbox. You will also receive some vouchers for half-price entry to LEGOLAND. Note that you need to buy the film and not rent it.
Even if you don’t have kids, this is a decent deal. The movie only costs £9.99. As you will receive 1,200 Avios back, you are only paying 0.8p per Avios point.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 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.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
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.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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.
