Since BAA WorldPoints relaunched as Heathrow Rewards last year, the sign-up bonuses have been pretty weak, to be honest. Now we have a real return to form.
In conjunction with Virgin Atlantic, Heathrow Rewards is offering 1,000 points to new members who sign up and spend £10 in a single day at Heathrow before 31 May.
Here are the rules, which come from this page (Virgin Flying Club log-in required):
1. Offer is only available to new members of the Heathrow Rewards programme who join using the above link or register their card and enter promotion code VAFEB14 before 31 May 2014.
2. 1000 WorldPoints will be awarded when you spend £10 in a single day before 31 May 2014. Excludes Bureaux de Change purchases. One offer per member on the first £10 spend only.
If you are already a member, you have a couple of options:
You could sign up again under a different post and email address (work vs home etc). As long as you send the miles to a different scheme to your other Heathrow Rewards account (eg to BAEC instead of avios.com) you should be OK.
You could sign up someone who is in your BA or avios.com household account, as you would still benefit from the miles once they had been transferred to their airline account.
Do try to take advantage of this promotion, as Heathrow Rewards bonuses do not get any better.
