Tesco is continuing to push blinkbox, its digital movie and book service, via the carrot that is bonus Clubcard points.
First we had the chance to earn 100 Clubcard points for buying a £1 ebook (still running, but at the poorer rate of 100 points per £2 book) and then 1,000 points and a free pizza when you rented ‘Game of Thrones Season 4’ (now over). There was also 500 Clubcard points for buying ‘The LEGO Movie’.
Here is the latest deal:
Until September 13th, you will earn 500 Clubcard points (1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles) when you buy ‘Spiderman 2’ from blinkbox. Note that you need to buy the film and not rent it. Full details can be found here on the blinkbox website. If you have a passing interest in seeing the film, it is not a bad deal.
The movie only costs £9.99. As you will receive 1,200 Avios back, you are only paying 0.8p per Avios point. I can live with that.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2023)
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 with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
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 10,500 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.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
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.
