News in brief:
2,400 Avios with £60 LEGO spend
Tesco Direct is running a ‘short but sweet’ offer on LEGO.
Until Wednesday night, you will receive 1,000 Clubcard points (worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club) when you spend £60 on the plastic stuff.
Special Etihad economy deal to Hong Kong
Etihad is running a special promotional code on Hong Kong flights at the moment. Using code JUNE30 you can fly from Heathrow to Hong Kong for just £344. This is exceptional value for such a long trip and is £25 cheaper than the current Cathay Pacific sale prices – albeit that flight is direct and earns Avios.
I’m not sure of the exact travel dates but I was able to find dates in June at this price.
15% off Iberia flights from the UK – today only
Iberia has been running a special discount for its newsletter subscribers this week which I forgot to mention over the weekend.
It is still valid today, however, and you can fly until the end of the year (July and August excluded).
The code ‘INTERNET’ used on iberia.com will get you 15% off economy or business class flights departing from the UK.
It is valid only on Iberia and Air Nostrum. No stopover are allowed.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (October 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.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
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.
