Bicester Village, the discount luxury shopping outlet in Oxfordshire, is running a special sale until 3rd November.
As part of this promotion, Bicester Village is also offering double Avios. The standard Avios rate is 5 Avios per £4 spent. During this sale period, you will receive 10 Avios per £4 spent. This includes food and drink spend on site.
You do not claim your Avios in each individual store. You need to take your receipts to the Visitor Centre who will process them in one transaction.
Amusingly, Bicester Village imposes a £30,000 per calendar year cap on your Avios earning at the base rate. If you spend more than £30,000 in a calendar year (!) you will only earn 5 Avios per £20 spent above the cap.
You can find out more on this special BA page of the Bicester Village website.
Note that Bicester Village works with MANY other airline partners so if Avios is not your core focus you should still find a partner to suit you.
