Hi all,

I've just had a quick phone call with the Avios team that look after these Lloyds upgrade vouchers, as I still have one left to use.

I can confirm that they have now extended the expiry of these vouchers through to March 31st 2021.

Great news, as I had heard from a couple of sources that it was going to be 'impossible' to extend beyond the end of 2020, but this is clearly no longer the case.

Hoping others here find this info useful. The lady I spoke to said the policy was only changed yesterday, November 16th.

Thanks so much for posting this here. Called up today and requested the extension, very friendly lady called Amanda sorted both my vouchers out in a matter of seconds, hold time under a minute too which is impressive. Hoping I can use these for an xmas 2021 trip if we're allowed by then!

Thanks for this. Just phoned and vouchers extended to March 2021, all done within 4 minutes. I also had a voucher that I let expire unused in October and they were able to extend that one as well to March. Added to my pile of Amex vouchers, FTVs, and e-vocuhers!

Forgive me - but I have looked - can you point me to the way to upgrade vouchers please? I cannot see any mention in the Wki. I have a Lloyds Avios account - but there again I cannot find any information

These were available on certain Lloyds cards affiliated with avios.com after spending a certain amount (7000? iirc). Lloyds removed the upgrade voucher program from the terms and conditions of the cards in 2018, but there are still a some vouchers out there.

Actually their loss was the problem. Water under the bridge, but a card that cost 24/year and saved me far more than that in FX alone, plus a voucher that could be worth hundreds, plus 1.25 Avios (from memory) per GBP was never going to last in the age of capped fees. I do miss it.

Edit: Is it not still one of the better non-Amex Avios earning cards if you have the Lloyds Club account, I think it's then 0.5 Avios per GBP, and no fee. Although the method of calculating the Avios favours few large transaction amounts over lots of small, if spend total the same.

Oops I hit quick reply instead of quote. This is intended for PUCCI GALORE!

I don't know how long you've had the account and therefore don't know if you have any vouchers, but I think they used to send a letter to let you know if you had earned one.

Anyway, perhaps call this number: 0344 493 3349 and give them your details. They will likely ask for you avios membership number, but I can never remember mine so I just give them my postcode etc and they start from there. If you have any vouchers I'm sure they will be able to tell you.

Good luck!

Yes I seem to remember it was 1.25 avios per 1 spent, and for the first nine or twelve months it was double that. I still have the MasterCard version and it earns me c.1200 avios per month just from regular spending. Not amazing but along with some tactical BA eStore spending it all adds up!
