Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Last call for Tesco Clubcard to Avios conversions

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Hopefully you don’t need a reminder, but tomorrow – Monday – is your last day to convert Tesco Clubcard points to Avios.

Transfers must be initiated on the Clubcard website by midnight on Monday.

Meanwhile, TODAY – Sunday – is your last chance to turn your existing points balance into vouchers.

As long as you have earned 150 Clubcard points in the current quarter, you can convert them NOW into Clubcard vouchers. This is called ‘Faster Vouchers’.

Your points will be turned into vouchers within 24 hours. This means that you will have a voucher code in time to transfer it by midnight on Monday.

I was sitting on 157 points on Thursday so I converted 150. The voucher code did appear within 24 hours as promised, and when I get a minute today I will convert my existing £29.50 of Clubcard vouchers.

You can learn more about Tesco Clubcard ‘Faster Vouchers’ in this article.

    Annoyingly unable to get faster vouchers now on my account now.

    Think this is down to the following:

    ‘ Collection periods are quarterly, (May, August, November and February but exact dates may vary). Members will not be able to turn points into vouchers for 2 weeks before the end of each collection period.‘

    Could have done with the article being a few days earlier!

    • Scott says:

      This is why I converted a few days ago.
      Discovered the 2 week lock of faster voucher conversion last year when trying to get some extra Avios.

      • Number9 says:

        I converted yesterday, I always thought leaving it till last couple of days was unwise.

  • kitten says:

    No chat thread up today. I’m missing our Sunday (s)trolls already. Weird as it’s usually the first one up daily well ahead of the others.

    • Baji Nahid says:

      Im wondering if thats me as im up super early haha 😂

      • Louie says:

        Something a bit odd going on. The chat thread is accessible from the latest articles sidebar but it is not on the homepage.

        • kitten says:

          will reduce readership if it is not seen

          • Rob says:

            Fixed 🙂

            For techies … I normally copy the post from the day before. For some random reason I copied Friday’s instead. However Friday’s had already been flagged as ‘hidden’ so the new one posted as ‘hidden’. Sorry.

  • Will says:

    Ideally you leave some behind and auto convert to virgin to get the 2000 virgin bonus.

  • Jon says:

    Quick question on Curve: internet threads are awash with discussion but it’s all about a yr old. If I got curve metal to pay my HMRC bill / premium bonds- would Tesco credit card treat this as a cash transaction?

  • avstar says:

    all of a sudden the mystery behind the huge limit raises for curve users is over. question is how long does this bonanza last…

    • Andrew porwol says:

      I just thought the same! My limit left enroute to the moon, maybe helped with fund raiser, but at least myself and others have viable limits.

    • The Urbanite says:

      Make hay and all that…!

  • Oli says:

    My Tesco delivery was scheduled yesterday 9-10am but the points were in my account at 8am yesterday, I requested faster vouchers which arrived at 3am today and I’ve now sent my £39.50 balance to Avios.

    • Cheryl D says:

      How did you send them?
      My points normally convert automatically to Avios so I’ve never used the app before. It’s showing me the Vouchers are there but I can’t see how to convert them to Avios.

  • SkiSunday says:

    Perhaps now Curve can afford to install a phone line or improve upon their customer service enquiry turn around times…seems customer service there is worse than ever. I got a replacement card a month ago and still have not been able to activate it. They even told me the sms i got saying it was on the way was a scam sms as they don’t send them, the card duly arrived though…don’t ask them where their elbow is…

    • Cuchlainn says:

      Snap ! Replacement card and 3 months later still unable to activate it.
      Never fear “our engineer department is looking into it”…

    • Ben says:

      This! Recently and about 6 months ago I tried to add Curve to Apple Pay. The text message doesnt come through so you have to phone them. The call goes through to a receptionist who asks a million personal security questions and then 3 days later someone else phones you back. Its such a bizarre old system for a company that is supposedly FinTech and has raised millions!

  • Save East Coast Rewards says:

    For ‘normal’ users I see two advantages of Curve:
    It provides a means to get your card into Apple/Google Pay if your card provider doesn’t support it
    It means you don’t need to take your cards outside with you, so if your curve card gets lost, stolen or its details copied and used fraudulently you block the Curve card and there’s no need to cancel the underlying card
    I’m a big fan of anything that reduces the need for me to use my actual cards in person because I remember what a hassle it was when I had my card details stolen somewhere in Prague in 2013 and by the time I tried to check into a hotel in the UK the card was already blocked. If Apple Pay and/or Curve had existed at that point and I had used it then the fraudster wouldn’t have had the details of my underlying card
