It is Tesco Clubcard voucher time again. Your vouchers for any Clubcard points earned in the last quarter should start to arrive soon. People with auto-convert may find that they are already there.
Virgin Atlantic, as I wrote last week, is offering a 20% bonus when you convert your Clubcard points into Virgin Flying Club miles. That means you receive 300 miles per £2.50 voucher. Full details are in my article here and on the Tesco site here.
British Airways is NOT launching a conversion bonus.
Instead, there is another competition.
For every £5 you convert into British Airways Executive Club Avios before 18th June, you will receive one entry into a prize draw.
The prizes, to put it mildly, are not outstanding:
4 winners will each receive 7,500 points
6 winners will each receive 4,500 points
40 winners will receive an amazing 1,500 points.
Why they couldn’t just give away 50 lots of 7,500 points – which in itself is not hugely exciting – I don’t know!
This promotion is not yet live on the Tesco / British Airways webpage but should appear in the next day or so.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2021)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
There are two official British Airways American Express cards. Both have increased sign-up bonuses until 2nd November 2021:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points, such as:
The 30,000 points bonus on Amex Gold runs to 9th November 2021. The 60,000 points bonus on The Platinum Card runs to 2nd November 2021.
Run your own business?

You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies. This card has a limited time offer of 60,000 Avios when you sign up:
