AerClub was, it seems, officially launched yesterday as a press release dropped into my inbox. I’m not sure why Aer Lingus waited a few months from the actual launch before formally telling people, but there you are. AerClub is now official and there are apparently 400,000 people signed up.
The German nightclub owners of aerclub.com will be delighted with the extra traffic!
Until 4th April, you can pick up 500 easy AerClub Avios by making a purchase from the SuperValu eShop. The minimum transaction size is €1.
You need to be a first-time user of the SuperValue eShop. You will receive 500 Real Rewards points for making your first transaction before 4th April, and those 500 Real Rewards points will convert into 500 AerClub Avios points.
Full details can be found on the SuperValu eShop page here.
PS. A reminder to new readers – our articles on AerClub will only appear on the Head for Points website. They will not be emailed to our mailing list.
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.
