We will shortly be saying goodbye to three generous Avios collection opportunities. If you want to take advantage, this weekend is the time to do so.
Last day for 360 Avios per £50 Tesco gift cards
On Sunday, Tesco is ending its longest running – and possibly most generous – promotion.
You currently receive 150 bonus Clubcard points, worth 360 Avios or 375 Flying Club miles, for every £50 you spend on third-party gift cards at Tesco. Third party means that you can’t buy Tesco’s own gift cards or those for any Tesco subsidiary company.
You can stock up on M&S, Starbucks, book tokens, iTunes, Next, New Look, Costa or whatever else your local store has to offer.
If you are in a Tesco this weekend, you should seriously consider dropping £50 or £100 of gift cards into your trolley whilst you still can.
Last day for 3,600 Avios when you spend £75 on LEGO Friends
There has been a generous Tesco Direct promotion on LEGO Friends running this week. It ends on Sunday.
As you can see on this page, you will receive 1500 bonus Clubcard points when you spend £75 on LEGO Friends before Sunday That is worth 3600 Avios or 3750 Virgin Flying Club miles.
That means you are basically getting the LEGO for half price if you value the Avios points or Virgin miles at 1p each.
Even better, code TDX-PKMH gets you £10 off a £75 Tesco Direct spend. The snag, though, is that you need to spend £75 after the discount to get the 1500 Clubcard points. This means that you need to buy £85 of LEGO Friends, for which you pay £75 and get 1500 points.
Oddly – and I tested this – you cannot buy £75 of LEGO Friends and £10 of something else and then apply the £10 coupon. It wipes off your bonus points. There needs to be £85 of LEGO Friends in your basket.
Last chance to spend on your bmi Diamond Club credit card
If you do decide to buy any of the items above, make sure you pay on your bmi Diamond Club credit card.
These cards stop accruing Avios points on 30th September. However, the transaction must have posted to your card statement by the 30th.
As the timing of this is outside your control, I would ensure that any major purchases you intend to make with the card are completed by Sunday. This gives them 5 days to hit your statement which should be fine.
