A Head for Points scoop …. the Heathrow Rewards card and details of new member benefits

Here you go, a little Head for Points exclusive to round off the week :

Heathrow Rewards

At last, confirmation that BAA WorldPoints will become Heathrow Rewards next week, and we will all be sent a little purple card like this!

It seems that Heathrow Points lost the battle in the internal discussions to decide on the new name ….

I also have some more information on the new benefits that will come with the Heathrow Rewards card:

Points will not expire (they currently do)

Members will get free Wi-Fi at Heathrow (not sure what the small print is around this)

Full details will be emailed to us all next week.

    That’s good news, as I suspect they will likely launch several promotions to advertise it – hopefully leading to more Avios and deals!

  2. R E Ward – oh, they ARE a bunch of wags.

    • vindaloo says:

      Well that explains the name choice. P O Int doesn’t really work.

  3. “we will all be sent a little purple card like this”

    Or maybe more than 1 with all the recent promos {wink}

    • Would be good to have a recep on the best way to ‘shutdown’/close/remove a worldpoints account….

      • umm, unsubscribe from their emails and your account will close in 3 months.

      • James67 says:

        Following Raffles first post on issue I immediately emailed them and closed down my account and 3 others! Here’s hoping for a good signup bonus.

      • Only 1 way … Unsubscribe from the email list. That automatically closes your account.

    looks nice

  5. Phillip says:

    I hope they maintain the double points/rewards for high spenders!

  6. Raffles, I’ve currently got a worldpoints card with points on. Will the points get transfered over to the new card? Or should I close the account and hope for a sign up bonus?

    • Yes, the points will transfer over. It takes 3 months to close an account (you unsubscribe from emails on line and that closes the account 3 months later) so if there is a deal next week you would need to use a different address.

    So far there web pages (within Heathrow pages) is only offering 100 points to rehister. Hoprgully their own pagr will bring a better offer than this. Avios conversion reported at 1:1.

  8. GlennM says:

    Dear all,

    New website launched:
    https://rewards.heathrow.com or via http://www.baaworldpoints.com

    Not a sniff of a new offer!

    Dear all,

    In addition to my last update on the website now been live, I’ve seen the follow new membership benefits, I think these are broadly in the usual category of the last card, but more formalised. Glenn
