British Airways Executive Club has announced a 40% transfer bonus for anyone who earned Avios from Shell Drivers Club in the past three years.
The bonus will run until the end of 2019. It is not clear if it applies to people who converted points to avios.com or just to British Airways Executive Club.
The promotion is to encourage drivers to switch to Tesco forecourts, or the remaining Clubcard-participating Esso garages, although ALL Clubcard points will attract the bonus, not just fuel purchases.
Members who are opted in to BA emails should have been contacted this week. If you are opted out, you may or may not be included – you may want to try a small test conversion from Clubcard to Avios via this page just in case.
Bonus Avios will be credited to the Eligible Participant within 1 month of the base Avios being credited to their BAEC account.
