Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

1,200 Avios with a Tesco Wine order and 600 Avios with Google Chromecast

Tesco has launched two new promotions offering bonus Clubcard points which would convert into a decent chunk of Avios points or Virgin Flying Club miles.

500 Clubcard points for spending £60 at Tesco Wine

Via a new moneysavingexpert.com code, you will receive 500 Clubcard points when you spend £60 at Tesco Wine.  500 Clubcard points is worth 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.

This offer is open to everyone, whether or not you are an existing Tesco Wine customer.

The discount code you need is XXPPGG.  You must spend £60 and place your order by Sunday 11th October.  The code will work a maximum of 3,500 times.

Delivery is free if you spend over £50, which you will be.  The code works OK even if you order some of their discounted cases.

The Tesco Wine home page is here.

250 Clubcard points with Google Chromecast

Tesco Direct has launched a promotion with the 2nd generation (with a new round shape) Google Chromecast – see here.

This is a device which plugs into your TV’s HDMI socket and allows you to send selected content from your laptop, phone or tablet to your screen.  It is especially useful if you are a Netflix subscriber as it is an easy wire-free way to get your Netflix content onto your TV.

You don’t usually see these discounted, so getting 600 Avios or 625 Virgin Flying Club miles for your £30 spend is a decent deal.

The offer runs until October 16th, so if it is out of stock when you look, keep checking back.  The link to buy is here.

    Just tried dummy order with Tesco Wine and code still giving 500 bonus CC points at at 3.30pm Fri

    Just for info code still working at 21:42 Friday. I am a bit of a wine geek. In my opinion Tesco are a bit lame in general on the wine front but a good everyday white quaffer is their “finest” albarino which is “on special” at the moment .
