Good news! Tesco has launched a ‘Clubcard to Avios’ conversion bonus. The bad news is that it is strictly targeted to a few people, seemingly people who have not converted to BA or avios.com before.
This is the deal:
Exchange £5 of Clubcard vouchers to BA or avios.com before 7th September
You will receive 6,000 Avios instead of the usual 1,200 Avios
As you can see from the accompanying logo on the emails …
…. Avios is promoting this as a ‘Part Pay With Avios’ opportunity. They are NOT suggesting that you use the Avios for free flights – which is a good job, as 6000 won’t get you far.
This is the text:
For every £2.50 in Clubcard vouchers you exchange, you’ll usually receive 600 Avios. But as a specially selected Clubcard customer, if you exchange £5 in Clubcard vouchers by 7 September, we’ll top up your balance to 6,000 Avios. That’s enough for £40 off a pair or £20 off two British Airways flights to a European destination.
I doubt many HfP readers will have got this. If you did get it on the account of a family member, you might want to do it and then create a Household Account with that person – or simply use their account to book a redemption or get the discount for yourself.
