Just in time for Christmas, Tesco is offering 1,000 bonus Clubcard points on £99 LeapPad Ultra XDi tablet computers for children.
(My 3-year old has managed to master a proper adult iPad so why you need specific kids tablets is a mystery to me!)
Tesco is also offering a discount of £10 when you spend £100 on toys before 23rd November and use code TDX-GWNT at check-out. It is therefore worth throwing in an extra item to get above £100. The LeapPad tablets are £90 or £95 depending on colour.
What is interesting is that these tablets are also included in the current Tesco Boost promotion. You could therefore redeem Clubcard vouchers for double their face value for part or all of the cost and then receive 1,000 bonus points back. The net cost of the £90 pink tablet would only be 3,410 Clubcard points ie £34 of vouchers assuming you used 4,500 points to pay in full and then received 1,090 back.
The offer runs until tomorrow, 10th November.
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.
