I will write a full article on this topic tomorrow.  However, I thought you would be keen to see this story from the Daily Telegraph today as soon as possible.

Read it here.

From December, Tesco is to halve the earning rate on the Tesco Clubcard Mastercard. This is currently the most generous Mastercard or Visa for earning Avios points unless you meet the strict eligibility criteria for HSBC Premier.

    Does anyone know whether HSBC premier would match an account for a customer with a Natwest Black account…..? Could do with this premier master card paying avios, not sure what the HSBC premier benefits are though? Natwest black is a pretty strong set of benefits

      You either meet the criteria or you don’t unless you work for them or can show you are on a strong career trajectory. Premier is free so is actually a better proposition than Black unless you get your moneys-worth from the NW benefits.

    I have started to use USA credit cards for all my spending, even in the UK; much better sign up bonuses and most don’t charge any foreign transaction fees. I tent to receive 1.5 avios points per $ spent.

      I was thinking about this, I presume you have a U.S. Address too?

    • Stuart McIntyre says:

      I have a US address I can use, but don’t you need a US SS number too? I’m guessing that would be the biggest hurdle?
