how to pay for flights with Avios

Collect 500 Bonus Avios When You Shop Via The New AerClub eStore Before October 21st!

Looking to boost your Autumn wardrobe or doing some early Christmas shopping? Why not shop via the AerClub eStore before the 21st of October and collect 500 bonus Avios!


AerClub, the frequent flyer club of Aer Lingus, have launched a new-look AerClub eStore. You can shop over 100 brands online and collect Avios from the comfort of your own home! Shopping via the AerClub eStore couldn’t be easier, simply log in using your AerClub log in details, and see all your favourite brands in one place! You won’t pay any more for shopping this way. Prices are exactly the same, but you will accumulate Avios while you shop. And now if you shop via the eStore before the 21st of October you will also collect 500 bonus Avios, so you have the perfect excuse to try it out!

Note this bonus will be issued on the first qualifying transaction only, i.e you don’t get 500 extra Avios every time your make a purchase. For those of you who are used to shopping via the Avios eStore note the promotion will not apply here – you need to shop via the AerClub eStore to collect the 500 bonus Avios.

Bonus Offers from Marks & Spencer & Eason

Some retailers are giving additional Avios during the promotion period so it’s a win-win! Marks & Spencer are offering 7 Avios for every €1 spent instead of the usual 4 Avios, and Eason are offering 8 Avios for every €1 spent instead of the usual 5 Avios. To put that into perspective if you spend €100 in Marks & Spencer you will collect 700 Avios plus a bonus of 500 Avios! So maybe it is time to stock up on some cosy knits from M&S or some light reading from Eason – just what you need for winter nights in.

How to spend Avios

You only need 8000 Avios for a return flight to Paris and 26,000 for a return flight to New York (you need to pay taxes, fees and charges). You can also use Avios to pay for hotels, car hire and travel experiences. See five ways to spend Avios here. I am a big fan of Avios and I have already collected over 60,000 Avios, most of which were accumulated by shopping. For more details on how to get flights and upgrades by shopping click here. In case you didn’t know, Avios are a reward currency that are used by many airlines including Aer Lingus, British Airways and Iberia, as well as various hotel websites and high street stores.
