Of the reward schemes on the market today, Airmiles remains the UK’s most popular loyalty scheme, enabling holders to save rewards on the purchase of everyday essentials at over 200 online, supermarket and high street partners.

Andrea Burchett of Airmiles says: “Airmiles has been rewarding members for everyday spending for over 20 years and with over 200 collection partners, members are rewarded with miles for their grocery shopping, utility bills, online shipping and everyday credit card purchases.  It’s really easy and quick to clock up enough miles for a free holiday or special day out in the UK or abroad."

Airmiles can be earned on the Lloyds TSB Airmiles Duo credit card which offers a market leading reward value where holders can receive a cash back equivalent of up to 6.57% of the money spent.

Also, unlike many other loyalty cards, The Lloyds TSB Airmiles Duo customers can claim their valuable rewards easily and conveniently, with all free flights inclusive of airline taxes, fees and surcharges.

MBNA offer travel credit cards for major airlines such as BMI, Virgin Atlantic, United and American Airlines.

Their recently launched a AAdvantage Amex card, with American Airlines, offers every new customer, signing up 5,000 AAdvantage bonus miles when they spend  £250 within the first 90 days.

The points accumulate at 3 miles per £1 spent in supermarkets, petrol stations and on American Airlines tickets for the first six months after that the rate decreases to 1.5 miles for every £1 spent. If you book travel with American Airlines using the card your payment will be interest-free for a year after taking up the offer.

60,000 miles will get you a return flight to the States from the UK or you can use your points against flights on one of the 20 partner airlines, including British Airways.

BA also offer their own travel incentives scheme through their British Airways American Express credit card.
