(or how to get 4800 avios for £10)

This is another in my loose series of "how to get avios for next to nothing"

Previously I've shown how you could get 12,000 avios for £10 (it's still a valid way of accruing Avios, and you can see the original posting here), and how you could get 4,800 avios for £10 (which has now expired)

This posting will show you a very simple way of getting over 4,800 avios for £10 outlay. If it seems familiar, it is because it is identical to the previous 4800 for £10, except the relevant game has changed. Tesco in-store are allowing you to pre-order Call of Duty GHOSTS for either PS3 and Xbox 360. You pay £5, and you get the rights to buy a game on launch day (some time in Nov, it actually doesn't matter too much). The important thing is that they are giving 1000 Tesco CC points with every one you pre-order in-store.

You are not committing to buying the game on launch day, merely buying the option of getting one in-store on launch day. Buy 2 pre-orders and you end up with 2010 Tesco clubcard points, which at the standard transfer rate will turn into 4824 Avios.

Note that Tesco do have history in retrospectively removing points from accounts when multiple games have been purchased, so I'd advise only buying 1 game of each type, per Tesco clubcard account. If you want the game, so much the better, if not, then you have basically bought 4824 Avios for £10. That's less that 0.2p per avios. Worth bearing in mind that Tesco can withdraw these bonus clubcard offers at very short (read no) notice. The last offer was only around for a day or two. It is thought that it might last until Aug 18th. Also some stores are displaying the offer, others are not, but the offer is available in ANY store that is carrying the games (until of course the offer is withdrawn).

If tesco should repeat an offer they did around a year ago of 50% bonus transfer for transferring from Tesco to Avios, you would end up with 7236 Avios for the £10 outlay !
