20% bonus for converting Clubcard points into Avios points – worth a look?

Three days ago I wrote about the new 15% conversion bonus if you choose to send your Clubcard points over to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club.

As I said at the time, our sister site Head for Points focusses exclusively on frequent flyer miles and hotel loyalty points.  It has written about this offer in detail – see here – so I will only skim the surface here.

From tomorrow (note, tomorrow!) you will get a 20% bonus when you transfer your Tesco Clubcard points to British Airways Executive Club Avios points.

The offer is detailed on the Tesco / BA page of the Clubcard website.

Is it worth moving your Clubcard vouchers across to BA to get some ‘free’ (not really free due to the taxes and charges involved) flights?

BA

There are a few key points to watch:

You only receive the bonus on the first £100 of vouchers you transfer.  I assume that you cannot send over multiple transactions of £100 although the wording is not clear.

The bonus will be added up to 28 days after the end of the offer on 30th November (this is not in the terms and conditions but has been confirmed by Tesco)

If you auto-convert your points to BA and they have already been sent over, you will receive the bonus even though the promotion does not start until tomorrow

This bonus is only available for conversions into British Airways Executive Club.  It is not valid for conversions into avios.com.  If you hold your points in avios.com, you would need to open a BA account and then use ‘Combine My Avios’ on the avios.com website to move them across (no charge).

Amazingly, this is the first widely available Clubcard bonus since July 2012.  This does not mean that you should necessarily jump on board.  If you’re interested, take a look at the Head for Points article first.

The offer runs until 30th November.

Don’t forget that Tesco ‘double up’ returns on 2nd November, allowing you to exchange £5 of vouchers for £10 of Tesco products, which may mean using your vouchers in-store is more attractive than usual this quarter.
