My favourite travel hack finally stopped working last time around, but that won’t stop me from being optimistic or sharing the deal with readers… Tesco Clubcard is yet again offering 1,000 free miles from Virgin Atlantic Flying Club! All you must do is set your Clubcard account to auto-convert before 13 December, 2019.
Going forward, you don’t actually want to automatically convert your Clubcard points into Virgin Atlantic miles either, because you’ll want to save any vouchers and hope for a conversion bonus to Avios or Flying Club.
What you want to do instead is:
- Step One, sign up for Auto Convert
- Step Two, wait for 1,000 miles to post to your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account
- Step Three, turn OFF Auto Convert (make sure to do this well ahead of the next statement, which should be mid January 2020)
Setting up Auto Convert 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.
Even though Tesco / Virgin Atlantic appear to finally be enforcing the “once in a lifetime” proviso on the free 1,000 miles, you never know what might happen…
And if you have never gotten around to earning your 1,000 free miles, now is a good time to do it!
