Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Tesco Clubcard is dropping Uber as a partner – the best Clubcard redemption is going away

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

The best use of Tesco Clubcard points at the moment is probably Uber and Uber Eats credit.  At least, I think it is and that is where I have been sending my points for the last 18 months.

Living in London, Uber credit is as good as cash to me.  It makes no sense redeeming £1 of Tesco Clubcard points for 240 Avios when I can get £3 of Uber rides instead.  This would mean I was ‘paying’ 1.25p per Avios if I took miles instead, and I don’t value them anywhere near as highly.

Unfortunately, Tesco and Uber are parting company.

Tesco Clubcard dropping Uber

As you can see on this page of the Tesco website, you need to convert your Clubcard vouchers to Uber by 10th July.  Nearer the time we’ll do another piece on what is best remaining Clubcard deal.

It is ironic that I found out about this literally 10 minutes after leaving a meeting where I had highlighted this as a great example of an ‘added value’ redemption which genuinely made Clubcard, and therefore shopping in Tesco, more attractive.

    OT — 15% back on Gett taxi (black cab) bookings appeared on my Platinum today. Expires 23rd June.

    O/T anyone successfully added a supplementary card to their online amex profile very recently? I can’t add a card to my profile (supp on husbands card). This has happened to me in the past and usually a different browser or mid week addition worked but not his time. Amex online chat said new rules around credit reporting means no supp cards allowed to be added to main profile, will need to create a new profile just for the supp card……

    • Anna says:

      Ways around this have been reported, however I have my supplementary card for my OH’s BAPP attached to my own BAPP account which is just as convenient.

      • Tracy says:

        This is what I am trying to do, I am trying to add my supplemetary card for my husbands Plat account to my own amex online account (used to have multiple cards on this account but all have been closed except my own BAPP). I have successfully added a supp in MY name to MY existing online amex account previously but was told today by Amex online chat no can do anymore…..not sure I believe them lol

        • Tracy says:

          Lol, what a load of s**t I was told by Amex online chat. Tried a couple times this morning to add the card on different browsers but no luck. Online chat no luck. Just tried again just for the sake of it and supp card now added to my account…..

        • Grant says:

          I was trying to do exactly the same with a supp Plat card and got the same story. I ended up creating a new account which is a pain. Even now if I remove the card from my second account and try and add it to my main one it won’t work.

        • Tracy says:

          Unlucky Grant, took me quite a few goes but it just suddenly accepted it…no idea. But online chat is definitely talking nonsense….

    Revolut could lose its EU banking licences according to the Telegraph Business section, it seems it would be enough for Lithuania to find it has illegal links with Russia & withdraw its banking licence for the same to apply across the EU

    [If Lithuania finds Russian influence, Revolut could lose its European banking licences, which allow it to offer current accounts and loans across the EU. The move would also be a blow to Revolut’s plans to expand services.
    The resolution will request that a Lithuanian national security committee investigates Revolut to “reassess whether Revolut’s activities are in line with the national security interests of the Republic of Lithuania”.]

    • CC says:

      Cant see that being a problem, Lithuanians are easily paid off.

      • RussellH says:

        I would not like to comment on that. But in general, Lithuanians would love to put up a couple of fingers at the Russians, I would expect.

    • Lady London says:

      Wonder which of Revolut’s competitors is stirring this up?

    Cathay Pacific cracks down on petty theft by cabin crew of Hong Kong carrier’s in-flight supplies
    Airline sources say staff are being searched on leaving aircraft after loss of property cost company ‘untold hundreds of millions’ over the years
    Six members of staff have been placed under investigation awaiting possible disciplinary action
    A crackdown by Cathay Pacific Airways on flight attendants helping themselves to company supplies has sent shock waves through the cabin crew community after several were caught red-handed over the weekend.
    Such petty theft at Hong Kong’s biggest airline had long been treated as an unofficial perk, with staff taking home everything from cutlery and wine glasses to bottles of champagne and even pieces of bread, according to company and cabin crew sources.
    At least six employees – a mix of senior and junior crew – were placed under investigation on Saturday awaiting possible disciplinary action after spot checks by professional security teams at Hong Kong International Airport.
    The sources said the theft of items that could have been used for future flights had cost the carrier “untold hundreds of millions” over the years.
    One of the most popular items had been the small pots of Häagen-Dazs ice cream served in-flight. Cabin crew had been known to have freezers at home packed with the product.

    • Relaxo says:

      Might sound like a ridiculous thing to pinch/stock up but a small pot costs a minimum of HKD40 (£4).

      • Lady London says:

        Knowing this will increase my pleasure next time I grab one in CX lounge at Hong Kong.

    • BJ says:

      OT @Harry, just noticed an interesting element to your MoreThan tip. They do £35 back on contents only insurance policies. Benefits on contents only policies are much harder to get than combined policies and many HFP readers are living in flats so worth a quote.

    • Andy says:

      But how do they get the ice cream home without it melting? Hong Kong isn’t in the arctic 😂

  • KBuffett says:

    OT – If I get a business AMEX, does the statement show my MR balance?
    Ideally, I’d like for my collegues not to see that info.

  • Matthew says:

    I looked at ex Stockholm flights. In the end I bought 3 return tickets to HKT, from Lhr for just over £1750 each. Used netflights on a BA flight code. Get my 560 tier points, loads of avios, about 25,000 and no detour to and from Stockholm. Other consolidator were quoting up to £2500 each, so worth shopping around . Booked a mix of flights, one on the new A350-1000 plus 900 and 787, various.
    I much prefer Airbus to Boeing .
    I am looking forward to my trip

    • BJ says:

      Good choice, that’s around the regular price recently for a one stop from the region’s too. Beats the hassle of positioning flight IMO, I only consider those if I want to make a short break out of it.

  • s879 says:

    OT: I can’t write the cash back site as it gets blocked I think but have done the earnings transfer to Avios with 25% bonus offer. Just wanted to ask how long the transfer time is as I know many were transferring earlier this month. It says 10 working day on the website which is quite a long wait!

  • Anna says:

    OT – Concorde Lounge etiquette. Do you just find a free table or wait to be seated? Hoping to fit in a leisurely breakfast plus spa treatments before transferring to B concourse so don’t want to waste any time!

    • meta says:

      There is a separate dining area and you get seated by one of the staff. For Spa, you just come to the desk, fill the form, wait and then the therapists escorts you to one of the curtained areas. You can also do spa at B lounge, but last time the therapist there was quite rude and said she only does facials. I didn’t pre-book as was flying in CW, but I was shocked by the way she spoke.

    • Clive says:

      I would pre book your spa treatments through you First 30 days prior to your departure.

    • Anna says:

      Thanks, yes, going to try and book the spa treatments 28 days out. I’ve found it hit and miss in CW, half the time there’s something available but the other half, nothing!
