What we know about the new Tesco Clubcard points to Virgin Flying Club miles offer

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Tesco Clubcard points from the last collection period should now be showing online at tesco.com which means it is time to think about how to use them.

If you convert to Virgin Flying Clubyou will find that this quarter’s offer is not as good as previous ones.  There is no transfer bonus – we have seen 10% or 20% fairly regularly for the last year or so.

Everyone who agrees to auto convert their future Clubcard points to Virgin Flying Club miles will get 1,000 bonus miles.

Everyone who converts their existing Clubcard points (including those who don’t auto convert) before 12th June will be entered into a prize draw and have the chance to win 50,000 Virgin Flying Club miles.  You get one entry per conversion so, if you have a lot of vouchers, you will increase your chances of winning – but waste quite a bit of time – by doing a separate conversion for each.

We know that BA has a competition of its own in the pipeline for converters, but we don’t have a lot of information about it yet.  We will keep you posted.

You can find out more about the Virgin Flying Club offer on the Virgin / Tesco website page here.
