The current Clubcard collection quarter ended on 21st July. Your vouchers will start to drop through your letterbox, or into your online account, very soon.
Anyone holding out for a ‘Tesco to Avios’ conversion bonus is going to be disappointed (again).
Who’d have thought your Tesco shop could send you on the holiday you’ve been dreaming of this summer? Well, from 1 – 31 August, Avios are giving away 1,000,000 points, as well as 10 prizes of 10,000 points – so you could be seeing a lot more of the world this summer.
Simply exchange a minimum of £5 worth of Tesco Clubcard vouchers into Avios throughout August, to be in with a chance of winning one of these great prizes.
And if you already choose to have your Tesco Clubcard vouchers exchanged to Avios, there’s no need to worry, you’ll be entered into the competition automatically.
It’s not hugely exciting, especially as the odds of winning are small. Entry is automatic, it seems, so at least you don’t have to go to any specific effort to enter.
Note that Northern Ireland residents will not be entered due to the odd competition entry rules enforced over there.
Avios.com may still launch a different promotion but it is highly unlikely that they would launch a bonus when British Airways did not.
Virgin Atlantic may run a bonus but, based on recent experience, if they do it will be something modest like 20%.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (August 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.
