If this article sounds familiar, it is because I originally ran it last month.
Blinkbox then extended the closing the date of the offer by a month.
It is worth mentioning again though. You have just two days to take advantage of the Blinkbox Books offer which ends on July 31st.
This is how the promotion works:
You receive 100 Tesco Clubcard points (worth 240 Avios, 250 Virgin Flying Club miles) for every ebook you buy
The minimum price to qualify for the 100 points is £1
You can receive the bonus on up to 20 books, for a total of 2000 Clubcard points
The last day to order is 31st July
Here are the terms and conditions in full. It works out at 0.4p per Avios point which is clearly a good deal.
It is easy to find books priced at exactly £1.
Go into a category, such as ‘Childrens Fiction’, search by price and you will find 15 titles priced at exactly £1. There are plenty more across other categories.
Unfortunately, you can only buy one book per transaction. You will need to make 20 separate transactions to order the maximum 20 books which are allowed under this promotion. Use a variety of different credit and debit cards to avoid your card getting blocked due to ‘suspicious transactions’.
The bonus points are posting OK so far. They post in arrears and appear to be posting for everyone at the same time. You may have to wait a few weeks until the next posting run but experience so far shows that you will get them without a fight.

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:
The 30,000 points bonus on Amex Gold runs to 9th November 2021. The 60,000 points bonus on The Platinum Card runs to 2nd November 2021.
Run your own business?
