Last week I highlighted a pre-order offer on the new Noel Gallagher CD. It offered you 100 Clubcard points (240 Avios, 250 Virgin miles) when you bought the £10 CD.
The offer is still available here if you are interested. It is not a good deal unless you were planning to buy it anyway. The deal ends on March 8th.
A new CD promotion is a bit more generous.
If you buy ‘The Brits Awards 2015’ CD for £11 before March 8th, you will receive 150 Clubcard points. That will convert into 360 Avios points or 375 Virgin Flying Club miles.
Again, this is not one to buy purely for the miles. However, it looks like a decent compilation – it is a 3-disc set – and may make a suitable gift for a relative. I doubt you could sell them on eBay for enough to make it worthwhile.
A new Lego deal
Bonus Clubcard points turn up on Lego items with surprising regularity and now they are back again.
You will receive 1,000 bonus Clubcard points (2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin miles) when you £60 on the plastic brick stuff.
Full details are here at Tesco Direct. You need to order by March 2nd.
Here is an even odder offer. 500 bonus Clubcard points (1,200 Avios) for buying a pink iPod! The cheapest is £39. Full details here. Order by March 15th.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 2022)
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.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
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.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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 10,000 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.
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.
