Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

How to earn Avios via Clubcard by taking gas and electricity from E.ON

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

E.ON is one of the lesser known Tesco Clubcard partners.  This is because, since the end of 2013, you do NOT earn Tesco Clubcard points directly from them.

E.ON has its own rewards scheme – E.ON Rewards – and it is those points which can be converted into Tesco Clubcard.

The other reason it is low key is that E.ON Rewards is an ‘opt in’ scheme.  If you don’t sign up, you don’t earn any points, even though E.ON is supplying your fuel.

E.ON Rewards is simplicity itself.  You can find an introduction to the scheme here.

You earn a capped 1,500 E.ON Rewards points per year for being on an eligible electricity or dual fuel tariff

Points accrue daily and are awarded monthly

You can either transfer these to Tesco Clubcard (1:1, no minimum) or for Bonusbond high street shopping vouchers (500 = £5 voucher)

Points expire after two years if not redeemed

Points do NOT transfer automatically.  You need to go onto the E.ON Rewards website to move them across.

As you can see, E.ON appears to be quietly hoping that many customers either fail to opt-in to the scheme or, if they do, forget about it and let their points expire!

1,500 Clubcard points per year is worth 3,600 Avios or 3,750 Virgin Flying Club miles.  Given the size of the most gas and electricity bills, however, this is a drop in the ocean.  Your first priority should be to find the cheapest supplier and only then, if it is E.ON, take the points into account.

Details of how to convert E.ON Rewards points to Tesco are here.

    I switched recently due to the fact the eon deal was second cheapest in the market. A few pence different between the cheapest so 1500 extra CC points better off and saving moneyon my old tariff.

  • pj says:

    A tried & trusted independent switching comparison tool from The Telegraph

    • mark2 says:

      Now that cards seem to be flooding into Tesco you can get loads more by that route.

      • pj says:

        and the Amex MRs on top! another 7,200 Avios

        • Jason says:

          Energy providers will soon be paying the customers at this rate 🙂

        • pj says:

          You’d have to switch more frequently or rinse more energetically!

          But I think my modest 3 switches a year strategy combined with fairly minimal rinsing will save me c.£500 per annum on a £1200 energy bill

          or put another way = 50,000 Avios

        • Polly says:

          Ok PJ, you seem to be the HFP expert on this energy switching process. Time you started an energy for points! !!! Excuse the pun ! Blog, so we can all follow like lemons! And BTW NOT even ONE of those pay. Com cards in my local tesco… V sad, checking daily!

        • Polly says:

          Hi PJ, thanks for the detailed reply below…. Will look at your link. V useful info….

      • Liz says:

        Are you paying £1200 upfront using the cards to 3 energy companies then getting refunds for unused energy?

        • pj says:

          Yep. OVO will even pay you 3% per annum interest for credit balances.

          Nothing like prudently putting away some money before the big winter bills! – the energy companies are all happy to see you managing your account so carefully.

      • joe says:

        blimey, I’d forgotten about cards (and therefore Tesco). I’ll see what I can find tomorrow….

  • Mike says:

    Thought these points would transfer automatically – clearly not, so thanks for the reminder. I’ve just checked and have a few hundred lying in my Eon account,

  • pj says:

    Surprised more people don’t get on board. Free, almost unlimited, Avios usually a tad more attractive.

    Shrewdly, I know that when Raffles does his write-up, this will be red hot.

    Must be some indication of which readers, read what (etc).

    Planning on buying 20 P.Cs on Thursday – some talk online about Tesco till staff having been briefed to accept cash only for these – which seems an odd directive – we shall see.

    • Rob says:

      I have been holding back until I can find a few and try them out. Trip to Earls Court this afternoon proved fruitless so I will need to try a Plan B!

  • David says:

    Hi – how can I use cards. I was a fan of the £50 visa cards (with a £4) fee and got used to buying them and paying direct into NS +I can I do the same with cards ?

    • Rob says:

      No. AFAIK all finance routes are closed. If you search for my old 3V articles you will see a list of utility companies who take them, plus Sky, Vodafone etc.

  • pj says:

    Stacks of cards round us. I started using them last week as Sky TV a/c needed topping up.

    Same password & user ID as 3Vs, worked fine.

    Next up will be funding the EDF a/c now that I’ve kicked out OVO & got my refund of a/c balance.
