Last chance to convert Tesco Clubcard points for Avios

Today is the last day for Tesco Clubcard holders to convert their points into Avios as the reward scheme partners are parting ways.

Tesco Clubcard customers can collect points for in-store and online spends and these can then be converted into vouchers to use at reward partners where their value can be tripled.

Currently, every £2.50 in vouchers can be converted into 600 British Airways Executive Club Avios.

But, as warned in October, the partnership scheme is closing on 18 January 2021, meaning Clubcard holders will no longer be able to exchange points for Avios after this date.

What you need to know

While the scheme shuts tonight, unfortunately, if you didn’t request ‘faster vouchers’ by 17 January, then you’ve missed out.

These ‘faster vouchers’ allow Tesco Clubcard app and online account users to avoid waiting for their next statement and instead they’re processed and ready to use within 24 hours.

Given this timeline, these customers now have until the end of today to exchange the vouchers into Avios.

Anyone awaiting a quarterly statement (next one due in February) will also have missed out on the scheme deadline.

Once exchanged, Avios will be valid for at least 36 months.

If you’ve collected Avios through the Clubcard but haven’t received them, you’ll need to contact British Airways Executive Club and fill out a missing Avios claim form online by 31 March 2021.

It will then investigate any missing Avios inquiries.
