Earlier this month UK-based Avios and Virgin Flying Club miles collectors got the bad news that a long running source of easy points looked like it was going to dry up. Tesco announced that their offer of 150 Clubcard Points (convertible to 360 Avios or 375 Flying Club miles) for spending £50 on gift cards was going to end on 25 September and no details were given on what, if anything was going to replace the offer. Now we know.
Virgin Atlantic have announced a 20% bonus when shoppers, with Tesco Clubcard balances, convert their Clubcard points to Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles. Tesco Clubcard points are earned at a rate of 1 point per GBP spent with Tesco (except on fuel where the rate drops to 0.5 points/GBP) and each Clubcard point is worth 2.5 Flying Club Miles.
