Shirt maker Charles Tyrwhitt has launched a new partnership with avios.com and British Airways Executive Club.
What is interesting about the deal is that it covers their stores as well as online.
The standard earning rate is 4 Avios per £1. However, until 31st March, you will earn 8 Avios per £1. This offer is not mentioned on the Tyrwhitt website but is promoted over at avios.com.
You can also save 10% on online orders until 4th April with Charles Tyrwhitt promotional code UKAFB4.
It is a long time since I bought any shirts from Tyrwhitt – my disproportionately large neck compared to my slim waist means I always struggle with fit and I ended up getting some shirts made.
(My view is that you are better off paying for made to measure shirts than a made to measure suit, especially if the suit jacket is just going to sit on a coat hanger all day, but that is a different article for a different site.)
They do offer a large combination of sleeve length and neck combinations, however, so as long as the neck vs waist fit works = and there are the options of classic, slim and extra slim – then you won’t have any trouble getting sleeves that look good.
How do I earn?
The Charles Tyrwhitt website is here. You shop as normal and add your Avios or BAEC number under the ‘About You’ section at check-out.
Show your BAEC or avios.com card number at the till. You don’t need the physical plastic card.
Tywhitt catalogues will include a box on the order form for you to add your number.
If you ring up to order, the operator can take your card number.
In all case, points will not be credited until 28 days from purchase to allow for refunds.
8 Avios per £1, during this special introductory offer until 31st March, is not a bad deal. The fact that is stacks with other promotional codes, which Trywhitt release with great frequency, means that the Avios are genuinely an additional bonus.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 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.
