Got a miles or points question? Ask it here!

(Edit:  I have now closed this page to new comments, as I have enough questions to cover the spots over Easter.  Keep an eye out next week for my responses.)

It’s Easter, so we are off on holiday again for 10 days.  Need to keep the kids occupied somehow!

This is therefore a good time to open the blog up to the floor.  If you have burning question about any specific loyalty scheme, loyalty credit card or miles and points in general, please post it below.

Question mark

I will pick a few of the interesting ones and answer them on Head for Points next week, for the benefit of anyone else who may have a similar issue.

(This also has the added benefit of allowing me to pre-write a few days of posts for when we are away ….!)

So, jump in.  What’s on your mind?

    Great site raffles – couldn’t live without it!

    I have just got my wife the platinum Amex for the 77,000 MR points (inc referral). I want to cancel my ba premium plus – what’s the deal with this card if you have the platinum, is it free, or £30 or full price? If its worthwhile I will take it out in my wife’s name to retain the 2-4-1 offer on 10k spend

    • Unfortunately, there is no longer a discount on the BAPP fee for Platinum cardholders, you have to pay the full fee.

      The 2-4-1 voucher is well worth having – it can easily save you 100,000+ Avios each year. Best bet is to refer your wife for her own card (so you get the referral bonus) and then cancel your card once it has posted to your account.

      Once your wifes card has arrived, get yourself a supplementary card on it. You will then be able to help her work towards the £10k voucher.

  2. I want to do a BA Tier Point run to/in the US later in the year but am confused about how to maximise points. Are BA or AA flight numbers better, how do I work out whether connections count as separate flights or just one for TP earning purposes? Could you FAQ my Qs?

    • BA numbers earn more Avios than AA ones. No difference in TPs. I’ve opted for AA ones on my upcoming TP run as it meant I could buy it all through AA’s website on their stock and thus hopefully easier to get rebooked in case of irrops. If different flight numbers they should count as different segments – there’s a very good BA TP run thread over on FlyerTalk I’d check out.

    • This is, unfortunately, not my specialist area! I’m others can chip in.
