100% bonus on Heathrow Rewards transfers (it makes the sign-up promo worth 6,000 Avios!)

Heathrow Rewards, the loyalty scheme for shopping at Heathrow, has quietly launched a 100% bonus on transfers to various airline programmes.

This is not mentioned on the front pages of the Heathrow Rewards website.  However, when you go to the page to redeem Avios (log-in required) it says:

Earn double miles on all Heathrow Rewards Points to Avios transfers before 31 December 2015

The same message appears under:

Emirates Skywards

Virgin Flying Club

It does NOT appear for:

Etihad Guest

Lufthansa Miles & More

Heathrow Rewards

This is why the deal is especially interesting:

As I wrote last week, you can currently earn 3,000 Heathrow Rewards points by opening an account and spending £100 in one day.

This is a very generous offer – the most generous I have ever seen, actually.

Combined with this transfer bonus, it is fantastic.

Open a Heathrow Rewards account, spend £100 in a day and you will receive your 3,000 points.  Convert these to Avios, Emirates or Virgin and you will receive 6,000 miles!

Whilst the 3,000 point offer runs until February, the ‘double miles’ offer requires you to make the transfer by 31st December.  You should therefore try to make your £100 spend before Christmas to ensure the points arrive at Heathrow Rewards before 31st December.  You might be pushing your luck if you make a transaction between Christmas and New Year.

You can read more about the 3,000 points sign-up bonus in this article.

It would also double up with the ‘up to 15,000 points for a jewellery or electronics purchase’ promotion that is currently running.  I wrote about that one here.  Spend £4,000 and your 19,000 points (15,000 bonus points plus 4,000 base points) would earn you 38,000 Avios.

  1. Does anyone know how long it takes to credit to you BA a/c once you request a transfer ?
