I got an email about the Avios eStore Black Friday offers yesterday which I thought was worth a quick mention.
What is the Avios eStore?
Rather like the cashback sites, Avios eStore gives you a rebate (in Avios rather than cash!) for shopping with everyday online retailers if you click through to them from their portal.
As such, if these are retailers you would ordinarily visit, it is a great way of earning Avios on transactions you would have made anyway.
As always, it depends what you’re looking for. One thing that did leap out though was the opportunity to earn 8 Avios per £1 spent with Apple UK.
Given how difficult it can be to get a meaningful discount on Apple products, that’s a pretty good kickback.
Obviously most of the retailers featured will be running their own Black Friday promotions and sales this week too, so there should be some good opportunities to stack them with the Avios eStore Black Friday rates.
It’s always a good idea to check the other Miles/Points eStores (Virgin Shops Away, AAdvantage eshopping, etc) and the cashback sites too, to make sure that a better rebate isn’t available somewhere else, but doing so is particularly important during times like Black Friday (week? month?), when lots of great deals can pop up for short periods of time.
Keep your eyes peeled for some good travel/shopping deals this week – there will be plenty of dross pretending to be good deals, but there’s bound to be a few gems as well! We will be sharing any we find of course, but please feel free to let us know in the comments about any you spot.
You will collect Avios on eligible purchases at selected retailers when you’re logged into and shop via Avios eStore. Eligible purchases vary. Collection rates shown in this email are correct as of 20 November 2017 and are subject to change – you’ll find full details on each retailer’s page at Avios eStore.
The Avios you collect from eligible purchases made via Avios eStore will be added to your account within 35 (thirty five) days. The exception is hotel and travel bookings, which can take up to between 90 (ninety) and 120 (one hundred and twenty) days after you have completed your stay. Avios will not be awarded on items that are returned or cancelled.
Avios accept no responsibility for fulfilment of transactions and delivery of goods, so please check delivery timescales with individual retailers. Standard Avios eStore terms and conditions apply.
Retailer terms and conditions also apply.
