Most of us are familiar with the likes of the BA shopping portal or the Avios eStore (or even TopCashback) – where you can earn extra Avios for shopping online.

However, you can also earn bonus Avios when shopping with certain retailers in-store.

In short, you simply register your payment card online and then when you use it to pay at the store in question, you’ll earn the applicable number of Avios per £1 spent.

Earnings range from 2 bonus Avios per £1 spent up to 11 Avios per £1 spent.

Which retailers are available?

In-store Avios can be earned at the following retailers:

  • American Golf
  • Ask Italian
  • Barrhead Travel
  • Blue Inc
  • Byron
  • Cafe Nero
  • Chef & Brewer
  • David Clulow Opticians
  • Debenhams
  • Eating Inn
  • Ernest Jones
  • Fayre & Square
  • Flaming Grill
  • H Samuel
  • Habitat
  • Heal’s
  • Hungry Horse
  • National Express
  • Officer’s Club
  • Old English Inn
  • Prezzo
  • Sunglass Hut

Not a vast selection, but keep an eye on the in-store Avios opportunities, they were recently added to and should continue to expand.

My suggestion is to simply register all your payment cards (you can register up to 10 credit/debit cards) and then just forget about this option. You’ll end up being pleasantly surprised when your shopping nets you unexpected Avios.
