Earlier this week we told you that the Daily Mail is ending its relationship with Nectar.
You will no longer be able to collect points by submitting codes from printed copies of the newspaper as of 14th September. Anyone with a digital or printed subscription can continue to collect until the end of November.
It seems that the Mail has a few Nectar points to use up, because it has launched a decent subscription offer.
For £20, you will receive a one year digital subscription to the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, plus 4,000 Nectar points.
4,000 Nectar points converts into 2,500 Avios, so you are getting 2,500 Avios for £20.
(If you drink Caffe Nero coffee, you’re getting 11 drinks @ 350 points each for £20!)
The only snag is that your subscription will auto-renew after one year at the full price of £120. You will need to cancel it before that point, and looking at the T&C this is only possible by telephone. It could be a little expensive if you forget.
This offer is definitely not targeted. If you go to themailsubscriptions.co.uk you will see it come up.
Anyone who remembers the Mail subscription deal of a couple of years ago which was targeted – and led to everyone who wasn’t targeted getting their subscription cancelled – can rest easy.
In a bad piece of UX, you need to input your credit card details before you see the screenshot above which confirms the offer. You can still back out at this point though.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 2023)
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 with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
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 10,500 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.
EDIT: Applications for this card are temporarily suspended due to IT issues with the British Airways On Business SME loyalty scheme.
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.
