Making The Most Of Your Everyday Spend With Avios eStore

Lists, my whole life is made of lists: book a haircut, pick up some food shopping, buy school shoes –there’s lots and lots of things that I have to constantly remember to book and buy, and I’m continually spending money from the housekeeping budget on things that are hardly exciting. Sorry, call me a diva, but I struggle to see my daily latte as exciting. However, what would happen if I told you that all your day-to-day family spending could earn you extraordinary rewards, such as flights to faraway places like Prague or even the States? Or maybe you would like to upgrade your stay to a 5* hotel? Well, say hello to Avios Travel Rewards.


Avios Travel Rewards programme allows you to collect Avios through your everyday spending, giving you the opportunity to spend them on flights and lots of different exhilarating experiences.
The team at Avios set me the challenge of recording everything I spent over an average week, which they then analysed to see how many potential Avios I could collect over a year if I were to shop via the Avios eStore and their other partners. They also showed me where this amount of Avios could take me and Boo.

Firstly, errmmmm it’s ridiculously scary to see your weekly spend in black and white – every single penny! Coming away from this I need to address my coffee shop spending, it’s insane; however the Avios team calculated that over the year and making minor changes to my spending habits i.e. booking my train tickets using a different website, I could potentially collect nearly 100,000 Avios – that’s enough for two return tickets to the Big Apple, with only the taxes and fees to pay. Suddenly all those boring purchases made throughout the year seem rather attractive to this wanderulust family.

There’s a multitude of ways to collect Avios: from your weekly food shop to booking train tickets, there’s an almost endless list of retailers available on the Avios website and it didn’t take me long to realise that there’s lots of small swaps you can do, to find a retailer to purchase from which allows you to collect and maximise your accumulation of Avios.

Signing up to Avios rewards is super quick and easy. After just a few minutes you’re set up and ready to go – the simplest way to explain how the collection of Avios works is it’s akin to the cash back systems that people are familiar with. By logging in to Avios website it allows qualifying purchases from partner retailers to be added to your account and before you know it, you can be sunning yourself on the beach or exploring a European city with a rewards flight using the Avios you collected. The only monies payable are taxes and surcharges. And redeemable flights start from 9,000 Avios. You can also use your Avios on hotels, car hire and experiences such as family trips out.

To help jump start getting you closer to your holiday goal, Avios are giving away 10,000 Avios to one lucky winner, plus two prizes of 5,000 Avios and 3 prizes 2,500. If you’re new to Avios or would like to top your Avios balance, make sure to enter!

Not everyday can be a travel adventure for me and Boo, but with Avios our everyday spending can allow us to travel the world – surely proving that my hefty coffee shop habit is in fact good for us…

    Oh I love this idea!! We don’t really travel a lot due to the expense but we do spend a lot in our daily lives so I guess this would soon add up to contribute to our travel plans!! It sounds like a great incentive, and actually those coffee shop purchases of yours can be justified with travel points!!

    We love our Avios! We earn loads as both my husband and I have American Express cards which earn us Avios with every £ spent. We manage to earn enough for a free flight for us both occasionally, which definitely makes a family holiday far more achievable. We’ve not spent any lately though, so they’re building up again. Hmmm… time to start planning the next holiday I think!

    I’d heard of Avios before, but didn’t release how many places who can earn them from. I really should sign up to this as we love to travel and seem to spend loads on all sorts of things each month!

    I never realised we could save Avios rewards through everyday spending online! Will look into this for saving towards next years holidays!

    How have I not heard of this before? I’ve told my husband about it and he is now investigating! I think we need this in our life, anything to help us along a bit would be great x

    Oh my goodness I’d hate to see all my spends down on paper! This sounds like a great idea though, I’d be interested to give it a go x

    Why have I never heard of Avios before? Such a fantastic idea to save up for other things x

    I love getting extras without actually spending anything! This looks great for travellers

    I’ve never heard of avios but it sounds like such a good idea and rewards would soon mount up without even realising.

    Oh my goodness I had no idea that this was possible! I’m so looking into this as I hate to think what our weekly shopping would equate to. It would be good to have something fun to look forward to 🙂 x
