A couple of days ago I wrote about BzzAgent, a product testing business which awards you with Tesco Clubcard points in return for testing new consumer products and writing reviews and social media posts about them. The business is a Tesco subsidiary.
Tesco runs a similar business called The Orchard. This is focussed on testing new Tesco products, experiences and services in return for keeping the products and receiving Clubcard points on top.
The Orchard at Tesco website is here and it has a sign-up page.
As with BzzAgent, I don’t have much feedback from members as to how good or bad it is. If you are a member, please let us know.
One member commented in my BzzAgent piece that The Orchard is a better programme – possibly because Tesco is genuinely seeking your views (you are reviewing their own products) instead of effectively selling your time to third-party manufacturers.
If you have the time to get involved then it might turn out to be interesting as well letting you pick up a few extra Avios along the way.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (May 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. 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.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
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.
