Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get bonus Avios and Virgin Flying Club miles from Tesco Clubcard via the Pay+ app

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

Tesco Clubcard bonus point deals are thin on the ground these days, so it is good to see the Pay+ promo back – and it runs until the end of August.

Tesco has a smartphone payment app called Pay+ (previously PayQwiq, a name that was dropped when they realised no-one could remember how to spell it).

It is Tesco’s payment app which let’s you pay your shopping and automatically collect Clubcard points.  Pay+ works a bit like Apple Pay or Android Pay, but with the added benefit of automatically adding your Clubcard number to the transaction so you don’t need to dig out your blue card.

Tesco Pay+ bonus clubcard points

To encourage people to try Pay+, until 31st August 2019 you will get 1 extra Clubcard point for every £4 spent in Tesco.  This is a decent offer, worth an extra 0.6 Avios per £1 or 0.625 Virgin Flying Club miles for every £1 of Tesco shopping you do.  Once you’ve set it up you’re good to earn bonus miles for the next six months.

You can read more about Pay + here. You will still receive all your usual loyalty points from your credit card too.
