Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Tesco Direct is to close – it’s the end of a Clubcard points-earning era!

Tesco surprised the market yesterday by announcing that it is closing Tesco Direct on 9th July.

Whilst some products will continue to be sold via the Grocery website, it is very likely that we have seen the end of the generous points bonanzas of the past – although, to be fair, pickings have been slim over the last couple of years.

This was always of great interest to Avios and Virgin Flying Club collectors due to the ability to transfer Clubcard points into airline miles.
