Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win 1 million Avios if you convert Tesco vouchers into this quarter

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If you convert your Tesco Clubcard points into Avios, you are probably doing it via British Airways Executive Club.

As I wrote 10 days, British Airways is running a competition this quarter:

For every £5 in Tesco Clubcard vouchers you exchange for Avios by midnight 31 May 2016, you’ll receive one entry into a prize draw, which includes a pair of Club Europe return flights and three nights in a 4* hotel, in either Chania, Crete; Biarritz, France; Palermo, Sicily or Menorca, Spain — some of our new summer short haul destinations.

You can find more details on the ‘Tesco to British Airways’ page of here.

I didn’t find this hugely exciting although, if you won, it is a pleasant prize. has now launched its own competition.

This is what has on offer:

We’ve got 1 million Avios to give away to one lucky winner, plus 24 prizes of 25,000 Avios and a further 100 prizes of 9,000 Avios. To be in with a chance of winning simply exchange your Tesco Clubcard vouchers for Avios between 16 May-16 June 2016. For every £2.50 you exchange you’ll receive one prize draw entry.

I think this is a better competition than the British Airways one.  The top prize is certainly more valuable and you then have another 124 prizes to go for.  The other 124 prizes are also worth having, which is not always the case.

You can see the competition featured on the website here.

It is NOT currently mentioned on the Clubcard to conversion page, but I doubt you have to worry about given that is promoting it so openly.

Of course, if you don’t need the Avios for immediate use then there is nothing to lose by keeping your Clubcard vouchers as they are until next quarter.  You never know when an Avios conversion bonus, or even a great offer with a new partner, may materialise.

    Just called up Avios to see if my points had come through and lo and behold Tesco have opened up a new Avios account for me. They say its Tesco’s fault as they don’t take the avios number from the customer at the time of ordering. In my case they said my Avios was set up as William and tesco has it set up as Wills (which is nonsense as my Tesco account is set up as William). Anyway Avios tried to get me to use the new account tesco created but after protesting they have agreed to merge both accounts. Good luck
