If you collect Tesco Clubcard points with the intention of converting them into airline miles, you probably wait for a conversion bonus to come along. (unless you have an immediate need for a top up)
One such conversion bonus has recently been announced, except it is one of the weakest I have ever seen. But it is news, and it might be useful to somebody. According to the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club website…
Convert your Tesco Clubcard points into Flying Club miles from 1 February to 15 March 2017 for the first time and earn an extra 10% bonus on the points that you transferred.
Woo Hoo! Instead of receiving 250 miles for each £1 of Clubcard voucher, you will receive 275 miles, and only if this is your first time converting.
I had actually been expecting a juicy conversion bonus to accompany the recent changes. But I suppose that those changes were actually positive for the vast majority of Tesco / Virgin Atlantic customers, who probably fly on Economy rewards a whole lot more than we travel hackers do in Upper Class.
However, since we’ve seen fairly regular bonuses of between 15 and 30% on Tesco Clubcard to Virgin Atlantic conversions over the last 2-3 years, I wouldn’t rush out to take advantage of this offer unless you meet the first-timer criteria and really need the Flying Club miles.
