Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Tesco Clubcard

Clubcard is the loyalty program of UK supermarket chain Tesco. Every purchase you make earns you Clubcard points which you can convert to a number of different programs, including Virgin Points.

Avios ceased to be a Tesco Clubcard partner in January 2021. It remains a partner with Virgin Flying Club.
