Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The new ‘Tesco to Avios’ conversion incentive is ….

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (www.shopperpoints.co.uk), which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

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.

Clubcard vouchers

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.

    Results: about 40 Pay.com cards sitting on the hooks in my smallish Tesco supermarket.

      Managed to find some myself today too, so the water bill has been paid now! 🙂

      Two whole hooks full in Tesco Uttoxeter.

    It does lead to the natural questions (since nothing much has changed):

    – why the name change?
    – why the de-stocking & hiatus?
    – what HAS changed?

    I suggest that ye get in quick since the only valuable thing is 150 points.
