News in brief:
Tesco capping Clubcard accounts at 30,000 points again
I have written before about the occasional practice at Tesco of capping Clubcard accounts at 30,000 points per quarter – which is actually in the rules.
This quarter they appear to have been especially keen, stripping people of points even when they only exceeded 30,000 points due to receiving ‘change’ on voucher redemptions.
You can read the story in full – and see the letter Tesco is sending out – over at Shopper Points today. The message, though, is that you need to be careful to restrict your earnings per person when a super-generous promotion like the pre-Christmas printer deal comes along.
Tesco wine deals ending
On another Tesco note, today is the last day to take advantage of two wine offers – 1,200 Avios (500 Clubcard points) for spending £100 at Tesco Wine and 1,800 Avios (750 Clubcard points) for spending £150.
The Tesco wine sale is still running so you could double up with cash savings and bonus points.
The codes you need are:
- XXLKMJ for 750 Clubcard points when spending £150+
- XXJJRJ for 500 Clubcard points when spending £100+
The Tesco Wine sale page is here. Delivery will be free as you are spending over £50.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 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.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
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.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
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.
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.
