Tesco Direct has launched a new promotion offering bonus Clubcard points when you pre-order certain upcoming video games.
There are 79 titles included in the offer when you include multiple formats! FIFA 16, pictured below, is included.
You will receive 500 Clubcard points for every title you pre-order, which converts into 1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin Flying Club miles. If you don’t want to use the points for airline miles, this page on our sister site Shopper Points shows the best value Tesco Clubcard Boost redemptions.
Note that this offer is NOT available in-store, which means that we can’t repeat some of the great pre-ordering tricks of old …..!
Most are priced at £40 – £44 so, assuming that Tesco is pricing in line with Amazon etc, the Avios will mean a decent rebate on the price paid.
There isn’t enough margin here to justify buying the games to resell on eBay if you don’t want them for yourself. The closing dates for the offer vary depending on the actual release date.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (August 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 with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
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.
