A few years ago, Tesco launched a business called Tesco Tyres. This has now been closed down, but the company which ran it – Scottish group blackcircles.com – continues to offer Clubcard points via its own website. These can be easily converted into Avios points or Virgin Flying Club miles.
blackcircles.com is an online tyre retailer but with fitting agreements with 1,500 garages across the UK. You select your garage and your tyres are then delivered directly to the fitter.
The standard earning rate is 1 point per £1 spent. At present, there are bonus deals running:
4 points per £1 on Quality Choice, Michelin
2 points per £1 on Hankook, Kumho, Yokohama
1 point per £1 on Bridgestone, Firestone and own-label
blackcircles.com has a price match policy if you can find cheaper tyres elsewhere, so the Avios should be a genuine bonus on top. The company has a decent reputation from what I have read about it, although I have not used it personally.
