Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

240 free Avios for giving Tesco your insurance details – if you got it before, you can get it again

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Tesco Bank runs regular promotions offering bonus Clubcard points if you are prepared to hand over your insurance renewal dates.

It turns out that I haven’t mentioned this deal for 6 months so, as it is a very easy source of free miles, I thought I would cover it again today.

The current offer, running until 28th February, is for 100 Clubcard points.  That is 240 free Avios points or 250 Virgin Flying Club miles.

Here is the form you need to complete.

You only need to give them one set of renewal dates to get your 100 points.  You don’t need to complete everything.

Tesco used to limit this to one set of bonus points EVER.  This rule has now changed.

The terms and conditions now say:

“One offer per customer entering their dates (including previous offers) into the Renewals website within a two year period

If you previously did this offer a long time ago, give it another shot.  If you’ve never done it all, definitely give it a go.  I get the occasional complaint that the points didn’t post but, personally, I have never had a problem.

    Not available abroad which I suspect quite a few HFP readers are at the moment.

  • Mr Bridge says:

    remember you need to earn 250 cc points from tesco bank before your points get converted in cc vouchers, and you need 250 for convert to avios. tesco bank cc points are not added to your normal balance

    • Andy S says:

      Actually I think its 100 points min so should be fine in this case, its when they offer 75 points that doesnt work.

  • Clive says:

    If anyone is interested BA and VS are offering very cheap Y flights to Dubai in the first quarter of 2017. Just saw £260 and lower. Happy New Year

  • kevino says:

    Is it click bait for Tesco’s benefit?

    If you try and claim those free, but have been there in the last 2 years, not only will you not receive them, but you have probably restarted the 2 year exile.

    Who knows when they last claimed….not I!
