News in brief:

Tesco Clubcard to Virgin Flying Club bonus now running

It turns out that Virgin Flying Club is running a low-key conversion bonus for anyone with Tesco Clubcard vouchers this month.

It isn’t very exciting:

you only get the bonus if you have never converted Clubcard vouchers to Virgin Atlantic before

the bonus is only 10% anyway

You would be getting 2.75 Virgin Flying Club miles for every 1p of Clubcard vouchers converted.

The bonus is not mentioned on the Virgin Tesco page or the Tesco Virgin page!  It is, however, mentioned on the Virgin Flying Club ‘special offers’ page here.  The offer runs until 23rd June.

3,000 Virgin Flying Club miles from Avis

Virgin Flying Club is also running a ‘triple miles’ promotion with Avis at the moment.

The best Virgin car rental offer is usually Hertz (1,000 Flying Club miles per rental) but this one is better if you can make the restrictions work.

You will earn 1,500 Virgin miles for a 3-6 day Avis rental and 3,000 miles for a 7+ day rental.

You must book by 30th June for rentals between 1st July and 31st December.  Only rentals in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia qualify.

Full details are on this Avis site.  It isn’t clear if you need to book via that specific page or not.

5,000 Lufthansa miles with a hotel booking

Finally, Lufthansa Miles & More is running another very generous deal to push the new Miles & More Hotels booking website.

If you book a hotel for €100+ before 30th June – for a stay at any date – you will receive at least 5,000 Miles & More miles.   Miles & More miles are a little tricky to earn in the UK, and the opportunity to earn at least £50-worth of miles on a £80 hotel stay is exceptionally attractive.

You only get the bonus once during June but you can get it again if you booked via a similar offer earlier in the year.

You must book via this webpage to see the bonus offer.  These will be treated as third party bookings so you won’t earn any hotel points on top if you pick a branded hotel.

    Hi, just another datapoint here but my wife did not earn the last bonus as, according to the Virgin email, despite transferring in March when the Tesco to Virgin bonus was on, the transfer period advertised was from 01 May to 23 June:

    “We have investigated the below issue and can confirm that the addition 10% bonus was not earned because the offer period was 01MAY to 23JUN2017 and you have completed the first transfer in March 2017. The offer was published in the March ready for 1st May launch.”

    So I guess it pays to keep an eye on the dates

      Nonsense. Go to the VS page for Clubcard. Click on ‘terms’. It still, as of Sunday, stated the dates for the last bonus in March. (Cannot check myself as on a flight.)
