As a reminder, our coverage of Avios Ireland (AerClub) is exclusively on the Head for Points website. You will not receive these articles via our daily emails unless it is a deal which UK residents can take part in.
We have written about the relationship between Irish supermarket chain SuperValu and AerClub a few times.
Basically, 1 SuperValu Real Rewards point (which you get for spending €1 instore) converts into 1 Avios point.
Until 10th August, you will receive 200 bonus Real Rewards points for EVERY online shopping transaction made via SuperValu eShops. This contains over 100 retailers.
This time around, SuperValu has brought in some exclusions. The following merchants do not count: eBay, AliExpress, GearBest, iTunes SuperValu Getaway Breaks, SuperValu Home, Travel and Car Insurance and SuperValu Online Grocery Shopping. Last time there were also tracking issues with ebooks bought via Kobo.
Because you can earn the bonus an unlimited number of times, there may be some potential here for multiple purchases of low value items.
Don’t forget that AerClub is offering a TRIPLE bonus on transfers of SuperValu points to Avios before 31st August. If your 200 bonus points arrive in time then you’d be getting 600 Avios for every SuperValu eShops purchase. However, this is unlikely for most products as transactions will not validate until the deadline for returning the product for a refund has passed.
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.
