20% Conversion Bonus and 1,000 Free Miles from Virgin Atlantic and Tesco

Tesco Clubcard Vouchers

Every three months, it seems that I get to cut-and-paste from a prior post.

Between now and 15 March, 2018, conversions of Tesco Clubcard vouchers into Virgin Atlantic miles will receive a 20% bonus. This means that you will receive 750 Virgin Atlantic miles for each £2.50 of Tesco Clubcard voucher you convert.

I can’t find any mention of the promotion on the Tesco or Virgin websites, but I did receive an email this morning.

Tesco Clubcard members can also earn 1,000 Virgin Atlantic miles for signing up for Auto Opt-In. This is where you automatically convert your vouchers into miles each quarter.

Normally, this is a bad idea! You should accept standard Tesco Clubcard vouchers, and hang onto them until a conversion bonus comes along or you find an excellent, high-value use for your vouchers.

Last time around, this trick didn’t work automatically for me, although that didn’t stop some readers from chasing their 1,000 miles from Tesco regardless!

  1. Step One, sign up for Auto Opt-In
  2. Step Two, wait for 1,000 miles to post to your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account
  3. Step Three, turn OFF Auto Opt-In (make sure to do this well ahead of the next statement, which should be late April 2018)

Setting up Auto Opt-In is simple. Simply log-in to your Tesco Clubcard account, visit the “Voucher Schemes” section of “Account Management”, choose “Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles” and enter your Flying Club membership number. Don’t worry, any existing Clubcard vouchers will remain as vouchers and won’t be automatically converted.

Presto! 1,000 free miles at zero cost to you. (just remember to turn OFF Auto Opt-in before your hard-earned Clubcard points are converted to miles sans bonus! )

Since this offer and the Avios prize draw seem to repeat each quarter, you should never convert your Clubcard vouchers before finding out details of the quarterly promotion…

    Thanks for the tips! I can’t see anything about the 1000 mile bonus. Where is that offer listed, so I can try to access it?
