christmas shopping

Do you shop online? Make sure you do all your shopping via the AerClub eStore and collect thousands of Avios at the same time!

 

Shopping from the comfort of your own home, there is nothing like it. No trouble getting parking, no battling through crowds and no queuing to pay! I am already a big fan of shopping via the AerClub eStore so when there is an extra promotion, I’m in heaven! My kids are lego fanatics so I was thrilled to hear that the Lego Store are giving 10 Avios for every £1 spent online. Not only were the prices cheaper than what I was paying elsewhere, but I got over 1000 Avios when I spent £100! I also picked up some books from Eason, they are giving 7 Avios for every €1 spent and to get 4 Avios for every euro spent at Apple – well it doesn’t get much better than that! The AerClub eStore offers are not limited to Irish online stores, you can also collect bonus Avios with popular fashion stores like Pretty Little Thing and Topshop and beauty store Lookfantastic.

How does it work?

Once you are logged in to the AerClub eStore you can click through to your favourite retailers and shop online in the usual way at no extra cost, but your purchases will be tracked, and your Avios account will be topped up with points! It really is that simple – you shop in exactly the same way as you would normally shop online but the online shops will see that you came to their website via the AerClub estore. You can also see the stores you have clicked on in your history so you know your transaction is being tracked. For anyone who hasn’t yet joined AerClub, this is the perfect time to do it. Simply click here to join AerClub, it couldn’t be easier!

For those of you who have been following me on my journey, I am delighted to say that I have already accumulated over 60,000 Avios, and most of these were collected by shopping. I’m not spending a fortune shopping, I’m just clever with my purchases. To give you an example I have highlighted some of my favourite stores below, to show you just how easy it is to accumulate points by shopping at the AerClub eStore. For anyone who is not familiar with Avios, read my first post about how to get flights and upgrades with Avios points.
