Tesco Bank has launched a new pet insurance offer, and it is the most generous we have seen for a long time.
Why is this relevant? Let me explain.
Via a new promotion with Money Saving Expert, you will earn 3,000 Clubcard points when you take out a new policy with Tesco Pet Insurance.
How long I do need to keep my policy?
Here’s the key thing. According to the rules, you only need to keep the policy for 35 days to earn the bonus. This means you need to make two monthly payments.
The points should arrive within 80 days although it is usually faster.
What can I get with 3,000 Tesco Clubcard points?
3,000 Tesco Clubcard points converts into:
7,500 Virgin points
£90 of Hotels.com credit (but your stay doesn’t earn Hotels.com Rewards stamps)
…… or many other deals from Tesco Clubcard partners.
How do I apply?
You MUST click through from Money Saving Expert to qualify for the bonus. This means visiting this page of MSE, scrolling down until you see the Tesco logo and this offer, and then click the link to redirect you to the Tesco Bank website.
Note that the cheapest ‘Accident & Injury’ policies do not count. You need to buy a Standard, Extra or Premium policy.
You must not be an existing customer of Tesco Pet Insurance.
Here’s a tip: there is usually no box on the application form for your Tesco Clubcard number. Tesco Bank finds your account by matching email addresses. It is essential that you use an email address which matches the one on your Tesco Clubcard account.
The last date to apply is 31st December 2020, so there is no rush if your existing pet insurance policy still has some time to run. As with all insurance, be wary of switching if your pet has pre-existing conditions.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
