Tesco Direct is running another printer offer which, amazingly, is an even better deal than the one which ran a couple of weeks ago.
Tesco Direct is currently offering 2,500 bonus Clubcard points when you buy a HP Envy 4504 wireless colour inkjet printer.
The price is £44. ‘Click and Collect’ delivery is FREE otherwise you will pay £3 for standard delivery to your door.
The link to buy is here. The deal is valid until 3rd December.
At the time of writing, it is out of stock. However, it was coming and going throughout Saturday so I would keep checking back over the next few days.
Let me explain how silly this deal is.
You do not need to spend a penny to take advantage of this.
At the moment, you can get double the face value of your Clubcard points when you spend them at Tesco Direct. This is what you do:
You buy the printer for £44 and pay using 2,200 Clubcard points (assuming you have £22 of vouchers in your account)
You receive 2,544 points for buying the printer
You have earned 344 Clubcard points and got yourself a printer – FOR FREE.
However, let’s assume that you want to earn some cheap Avios points via this deal instead. I’ll assume that you take the printer and throw it in the nearest dustbin (or, preferably, give it your local charity shop).
You will earn a total of 2,544 Clubcard points for the purchase. This will get you 6,105 Avios points or 6,360 Virgin Flying Club miles.
That works out at 0.72p per Avios point or 0.69p per Virgin Flying Club mile.
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.
If you are prepared to put in some time, of course, you can get this price down by selling your printer via eBay.
Let’s assume that you are left with just £10 after eBay fees and postage in a worse case scenario. That takes your cost down to £34. That would work out at 0.55p per Avios point or 0.53p per Virgin mile.
Remember that Tesco takes a dim view of bulk buying. If you buy more than one through the same Clubcard account, you are at serious risk of not getting the points. HFP readers have been caught out by this many times in the past. The deal does not appear to be available in-store.
To be honest, you will need to be lucky to nab one of these. However, as the offer does not close until Thursday, there is plenty of time. The link is here.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (December 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.
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 10,500 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.
