Travel hackers in the UK are sadly aware that Tesco, under new management, has cut back drastically on the opportunities to earn bonus Clubcard Points, which were then spent ANYWHERE other than Tesco for outsized value.
Perhaps this restraint has hit the bottom line harder than Tesco hoped (or more likely its main partners), as an Avios conversion bonus has recently returned. You can read about it by clicking here.
The other main travel hack available from Tesco is the Virgin Atlantic Flying Club 1,000 mile “opt-in” bonus. Most quarters you can:
- Step One, sign up for Auto Opt-In
- Step Two, wait for 1,000 miles to post to your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account
- Step Three, turn OFF Auto Opt-In (make sure to do this well ahead of the next statement)
Rinse and repeat until somebody decides to stop it…
The opt-in bonuses have been reaching Virgin Atlantic accounts this week, so it’s time to set your Tesco Clubcard account back to “vouchers”.
Normally I know enough to keep my mouth (and keyboard) shut when an unexpected bonus comes along, but I decided to share this anyhow so that readers can see the potential benefits of playing this little game… 😉
Enjoy your free miles, and hopefully this offer will come back again at the next Clubcard statement cycle in November.
