(EDIT: Virgin has now announced a bonus, full analysis tomorrow)
To be fair, this doesn’t mean there won’t be one. It just means that it hasn’t appeared yet – which means the odds are against it.
Avios.com and BA are running competitions, however.
The competitions are not life changing but better than a slap in the face. As the Tesco / avios.com page states:
Win 15,000 Avios
We’ve got 25 prizes of 15,000 Avios to give away. To be in with a chance of winning simply exchange £2.50 in Tesco Clubcard vouchers for Avios between 29 January and 29 February 2016. For every £2.50 you exchange, you’ll receive one prize draw entry.
The British Airways competition is different – 1 entry for every £5 you exchange. This makes me think that they are being run separately and there are two prize pots.
However this does not mean that it is a worse competition as it makes no difference to your odds of winning whether you get one entry per £5, £2.50 or even 1p exchanged!
No word of anything from Virgin …….
