Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Exclusive: Tesco Clubcard to Avios November promotion revealed

Tesco Clubcard vouchers will soon be dropping through letterboxes. The key question is ‘Will Avios be running a conversion bonus this quarter?’

The answer is no, unfortunately.

Instead, there is a competition.

Every day from November 4th to December 4th, there will be a prize draw for everyone who converted that day. Six winners will receive a random prize of between 1,500 and 100,000 Avios.

You receive one entry for every £2.50 you convert.

If you automatically convert your Clubcard points to Avios, you will receive ONE entry every day. Anyone who has a very large amount of points autoconverting will be worse off whilst anyone with a small total will be better off.

This is not desperately exciting stuff, to be honest. There is no word yet on whether Virgin Flying Club will be running a conversion bonus.

    Noticed Virgin is also having a competition this quarter.

    Convert your Clubcard points into Flying Club miles between 7 November and 5 December 2014 and you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win our top prize of 50,000 miles plus our ultimate pre flight experience – a Guest List Package, or one of four prizes of 50,000 Flying Club miles.
