Tesco Clubcard to Avios Conversion Bonus (FINALLY) Returns!

After what feels like a gap of about a century, a new Tesco Clubcard to Avios bonus has finally been announced! – If you’ve been diligently saving up your Clubcard Points for a big bonus though, don’t get too excited:

Did you know that if you use your Clubcard points before 15 November, we’ll give you a bonus 1,000 Avios reward? That’s an extra boost for your Avios balance to put towards your next holiday.

All you need to do is shop at Tesco and turn at least £5.00 worth of Clubcard points into Avios. Remember, you’ll also collect 600 Avios for every £2.50 worth of Clubcard points you use.

As you can see above, to bag the 1,000 bonus Avios all you have to do is transfer at least £5 worth of Tesco Clubcard vouchers across to British Airways Avios, in a single transaction, before 15th November 2018.

If you transferred exactly £5 of vouchers across, you’d end up with 2,200 Avios (1,200 standard + 1,000 bonus), which is an excellent conversion rate.

The terms state that the “Bonus Avios will be credited to the Eligible Participant’s BAEC account within 28 days of the campaign ending”, so don’t count on receiving the bonus Avios anytime soon – though I imagine there’s a reasonable chance they will actually post a lot sooner than that.

The email I received started off with the line, “We’ve noticed that you haven’t turned your Tesco Clubcard points into Avios recently“, which suggested it might be a targeted offer, but the terms are quite clear that it’s open to all: ” An Eligible Participant is a person aged 18 or over and is a British Airways Executive Club (“BAEC”) Member”.

Bottom line

It may not be the most generous Clubcard to Avios conversion bonus we’ve ever seen, but it’s great to see any sort of bonus offer back. I’ll certainly be transferring £5 across myself.

    Great! Now, how many clubcard points have I collected recently? Oh… 😉

    Alas, poor Tesco DIrect, I knew him well.

    • Joe Deeney says

      Nope – 1 transaction only unfortunately. If you’ve got family members who also have some tesco points though, they could transfer £5 and get the bonus too (and BA makes it possible to pool Avios in a household account of course)

  2. GS says

    Has anyone received the 100 Virgin FC miles for the auto opt in back in August? I haven’t seen anything come through yet!

  3. Andy says

    One of the nice things about this promo was that I didn’t realise I had £23 of Clubcard vouchers available, I thought my account was empty!

  4. Henrik says

    I received an email yesterday stating 20% bonus on auto converted club card points to avios. It wasn’t clear if it was just for points EARNED in the quarter ending 18-10-18 or if it would include all the other vouchers sitting in the account. Anyone else get this email?

    • Henrik says

      T’s and C’s:

      To qualify for the 20% bonus Avios the Eligible Participant will need to have opted to have their Tesco Clubcard Vouchers automatically converted into British Airways Executive Club – Avios. Tesco Clubcard points must be earned and in your Tesco Clubcard account by the end of the existing statement period, which is midnight on 18 October 2018. Any points earned after this date will not qualify for the 20% bonus.

      You can automatically convert your Clubcard Points into Avios by signing up to your ‘My Clubcard Account’ and ticking the box to opt in the ‘My Preferences’ page, under ‘My Account Details’.

      For every £2.50 of Tesco Clubcard Vouchers earned within the existing statement period up until 18 October and automatically exchanged will receive 720 Avios.

      Bonus Avios will be awarded with your standard automatic opt in Avios award.

      • Joe Deeney says

        Cheers Henrik – VERY interesting! Do the terms happen to define what an “Eligible Participant” is for that one?

        Actually, would you mind forwarding the email (or a screenshot without any personal details if there are any in the email!) to joe@insideflyer.com ? Many thanks!!

        • Henrik says

          Had trouble doing a screen shot so here is a cut and paste: eligible is any BAEC member over 18….

          We wanted to take the time to say “thank you” for turning your Tesco Clubcard points into Avios.

          So, for every Clubcard point you collect on spending, this quarter we’ll give you a bonus 20% Avios, helping you get one step closer to your next holiday. Don’t forget you can use your Avios towards a part-payment of your next holiday or treat yourself to a cabin upgrade.

          You’ve still got time to make the most of your 20% Avios bonus, so keep spending before 18 October and help turn your everyday spending into something you’ll never forget.

          • Joe Deeney says

            Cheers! – very interesting. The terms are absolutely clear, but my gut says it’s actually meant to be targeted and they just haven’t written the terms properly.

      • Katie B says

        Can I just clarify that it is just points gathered in this quarter that will get the bonus or will it be all points sitting on the account?

        • Craig Sowerby says

          The bonus, assuming you are targeted, appears to only apply to “auto-converted” Avios, which would cover only points earned this quarter.

          However you could spend any existing large denomination vouchers on something small, like £2.50 to Virgin miles or £5 for the Avios bonus. Any excess funds on your voucher would then be recredited to your Clubcard account, and would then be auto-converted with the bonus at the next statement.

          That said, it does seem a bit risky to me as it’s unclear whether the bonus only applies to targeted members or to anybody who sets up autoconvert to Avios…

  5. VK says

    Does it show 1200 + 1000 bonus on the Tesco website cause set up the transfer, it shows only 1200 for £5. I haven’t received the targeted email.

    I don’t want to transfer right away in case there is some ambiguity.

  6. awk says

    My wife received the 1000 bonus email and converted £5 of vouchers. The Clubcard confirmation email says 1200 Avios and we expected the 1000 bonus to be added within 28 days. However, checking her exec club account it shows a credit if 1600 Avios – which doesn’t make any sense.

    Anyone else received them yet?

    • Damag says

      Awk, does your wife have a Tesco platinum credit card? This may be the reason, although the norm is to receive 600 Avios per £2.50 worth of vouchers many moons ago (might have been when Tesco bank took over handling the credit card from RBS) that my conversion rate was increased to 800 Avios per £2.50 and remains that way to this date. My transfers always show the standard rate but I get credited with my boosted rate.

      Has anyone who converted £5 worth of vouchers but had not received the bonus 1000 Avios email received the bonus?
