Virgin Atlantic has launched a Tesco conversion inducement.
It seems that Virgin Atlantic is NOT offering a transfer bonus this quarter to anyone who is thinking of converting their Tesco Clubcard points to Virgin Flying Club miles.
There is, however, a bonus of 1,000 Virgin miles for anyone who sets their Tesco Clubcard account to auto-convert future vouchers directly into Flying Club.
I do not recommend this, because it makes more sense to keep control over your vouchers and only redeem them when you need to book a flight. This means that you won’t miss a future conversion bonus or a good deal from another Clubcard partner.
However …. you can turn on auto-convert and then, as long as the 1,000 miles arrive in time, turn it off before the next Clubcard mailing. There is also no risk in turning it on if you don’t expect to have a lot of Clubcard points next quarter.
Instructions on how to set up auto-convert can be found on the Clubcard page of the Virgin Atlantic website here.
The offer runs until 16th June.
