    Yet there still isn!!!8217;t any information surrounding the Choice Rewards Duo and what their plan is with that scheme...
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your credit history. Any replies are my own personal opinion and not a representation of my employer.

    I'm going to miss this card. The upgrade voucher is pretty much the only one tailored for the solo traveller, and I've gotten upgrades to India and Korea out of it.

    There is some more info and speculation on the Headforpoints website. Whether I'll be able to get one last voucher out of it will depend on when I receive my letter...

    So, this is slightly related... I have the Lloyds duo Amex/Mastercard thing going on, have been for years and have collected loads of Avios.

    But now, Avios have been moved to British Airways Executive Club. My Avios from flights are there, but not from my Lloyds spend. And I cannot, for love nor money, find out to claim for them... any ideas?

    The Avios from Lloyds spend should be auto crediting to BAEC, that's if your Avios.com account has actually been closed. If you have an Aer Lingus Aerclub account, for example, that used Avios.com, so your Avios account remains open. Confused yet?

    Indeed, and I can still pull Avios into it from Iberia. I am also an AerClub member, so my Avios.com account won't close apparently, are you also a member of AerClub by any chance? A lot of points and miles collectors will be (Aer Lingus' new loyalty programme, also using Avios).
