Anyone who was hoping for a conversion bonus of Tesco Clubcard points to Avios this quarter (but is anyone still that optimistic?!) will be disappointed.
We don’t know what the ba.com offer will be yet, but avios.com has launched another competition.
This is how it works:
For every £2.50 of Clubcard vouchers you convert via avios.com (not ba.com) before 31st August, you will receive one entry in the prize draw
Two people will win 50,000 Avios
Three people will win 25,000 Avios
150 people will win 5,500 Avios
Winners will be notified by 7th October.
We don’t yet know what carrot ba.com will dangle. If you don’t need to convert immediately, you might as well wait a few days and see if they launch a better or worse competition – or something entirely different.
On the other hand, if you need to convert immediately, you might as well convert via avios.com and not BA. Remember that you can move your points from avios.com to British Airways Executive Club instantly via ‘Combine My Avios’.
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.
