For those of you in the United Kingdom who shop at Tesco, their current Clubcard collection period is coming to an end on Saturday 4th May.
To ensure that your Clubcard points hit your account by the deadline ensure any spend is complete by Thursday 2nd May as it takes 2 days for spend to hit your account. Any other spend might not hit in time and may be carried forward to the next collection period.
Tesco Clubcard points are convertible into useful mileage or travel currencies such as:
- Avios va British Airways Executive Club or Avios.com
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles
- Monarch Airways
- Red Spotted Hanky (for Rail Travel)
- Le Shuttle
- And many other things…
As always, value is where you find it, be it in travel items, Avios, Monarch vouchers or even use the vouchers for your shopping.
So far, there has been nothing special announced from Avois/Flying Club/Monarch etc, so my advice is to convert only expiring Clubcard vouchers (Vouchers are valid for 2 years from issue) if you have to spend vouchers. Otherwise – if you’re after Avios (and bonus Avios in particular), I’d wait to see if a bonus promotion opens up…
