News in brief:
Win 50 x 18,000 Avios with Tesco
There is no transfer bonus for Tesco Clubcard to Avios conversions this quarter.
Instead, if you convert into British Airways Executive Club, there is a competition.
As per this page of ba.com, there are 50 prizes of 18,000 Avios to be won. You receive one entry for every 500 Clubcard points you convert to BAEC Avios points between 1st May and 31st May.
If your Tesco account is set to auto-convert, you won’t miss out. In fact, you will automatically receive two entries for every 500 Clubcard points which are auto-converted.
It remains to be seen if avios.com will run a similar, better or worse competition – or nothing at all. There isn’t anything showing on the Avios website at the moment.
Get 2,400 Avios with £60 worth of LEGO Star Wars
Speaking of Tesco, Tesco Direct is giving away 1,000 Clubcard points (2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin miles) when you spend £60 on LEGO Star Wars.
The deal runs until 8th May. Click here to see the sets included.

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.
