Collect Triple Avios Points From SuperValu in December!

Collect triple Avios points from SuperValu on all your Christmas grocery shopping and your money back vouchers!

 

With Christmas only around the corner, I am delighted to tell you that you can collect triple Avios points from SuperValu by converting your real rewards points or money back vouchers to Avios, before the 31st of December. Instead of the collecting the usual 1 Avios for every €1 spent with SuperValu you can collect 3 Avios during December. This means that a €200 grocery shop will give you 600 Avios points! If you have received €10 in money back vouchers, that will give you a staggering 3000 Avios!  If you haven’t received your money back vouchers yet don’t worry, you can convert them easily online, or by using the SuperValu app and still collect your triple points. See here for more details or check out this short video.

How to spend your Avios

Once you have collected Avios points, you can spend them with Aer Lingus and partner airlines, and there are thousands of destinations to choose from. When you have accumulated 13,000 Avios you can book a return flight to Paris, while 26,000 will give you a return flight to New York. Note these exclude taxes, fees and charges and are based on off-peak travel. You can also part pay for your ticket with Avios or buy Avios if you have not accumulated the required amount of points for your destination.

I love that I can use my Avios to upgrade economy tickets to business class and that no taxes or fees apply. For those of you who have been following me on my journey, I am delighted to say that I have already accumulated 33,000 Avios this year. I just need another 4,000 for a business class upgrade to New York with Aer Lingus – which I should accumulate by the end of December, by Christmas shopping in SuperValu and shopping via the eStore! Most of my Avios were collected by shopping cleverly and taking advantage of the many promotions that Avios run during the year – such as this one! For anyone who is not familiar with Avios, read my first post about how to get flights and upgrades with Avios points and start your journey now.

Win Business Class Tickets to New York for 8 People with Avios Points

New York City Photo Tips

Imagine flying business class to New York with seven of your friends….It could be you, if you convert your Real Rewards to Avios points!

 

SuperValu and AerClub have launched an amazing competition to win one million Avios points! As an Avios millionaire you could treat yourself to a host of holiday destinations or fly business class to New York, Boston, Chicago or Toronto with seven of your friends! (T&Cs apply). There are also 100 prizes of 10,000 Avios points and one lucky AerClub member will also win 2 return tickets to New York.

What I love about this competition is that you can enter as many times as you like. All you need to do is convert a minimum of 50 SuperValu Real Rewards points to Avios points to enter. Every time you convert 50 points, this counts as 1 entry. If, like me, you are a regular shopper in SuperValu, the chances are you have hundreds of Real Rewards just sitting in your account. Just make sure you convert them to Avios points before the 31st of October 2017, and convert 50 at a time to get as many entries as possible. If you haven’t already converted SuperValu points to Avios points, it literally takes minutes on the SuperValu website.

Why should I join?

As an AerClub member, Avios points are so easy to accumulate; you don’t have to be a frequent flyer to collect them. In fact you will collect much more by simply shopping. You can collect points in stores like SuperValu, Kildare Village and Appleby and in top highstreet stores online at the Avios eStore. You can collect a staggering 30,000 Avios points by subscribing to the Irish and Sunday Independent or 500 Avios points by making a restaurant reservation online by using Restaurant Circle. Of course you can also collect points every time you fly with Aer Lingus or their partner airlines such as British Airways, Iberia and United. I’ve been collecting points for 10 months now and I almost have a business class upgrade to New York. Almost all of these points were collected by shopping. Still not convinced? Read my no nonsense guide on how to get flights and upgrades with Avios points or check out this short video.

Still not joined SuperValu Real Rewards?

Just pick up a Real Rewards card in your local SuperValu and log onto the SuperValu website. Add your AerClub membership number and convert your Real Rewards points to Avios points in minutes. Just remember to convert 50 at a time to get as many entries as possible.

 

Good luck!

I get very excited when I hear about Avios promotions! Yes, I will no doubt be doing some serious online shopping this weekend, to take advantage of the Avios eStore Double Avios Weekend!

 

For those of you who have been following me on my journey, I am delighted that have already accumulated almost 30,000 Avios points this year. I just need another 7,000 for a business class upgrade to New York with Aer Lingus – how cool is that! Most of my Avios points were collected by shopping, I have only collected 2469 points by flying. I shop in Supervalu regularly and convert my Real Rewards to Avios. Occasionally I shop in Kildare Village, but the majority of my points were accumulated by shopping through the Avios eStore. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not spending a fortune online, I’m just clever with my purchases. Recently I bought the kids school supplies from Easons, their uniforms from Marks & Spencer and new runners from Adidas. Those three purchases accumulated 6000 Avios! For anyone who is not familiar with Avios, read my first post about how to get flights and upgrades with Avios points.
