Heathrow Rewards mega-bonus on electronics, watches and jewellery is back!

There is good news for Avios, Virgin Flying Club, Emirates Skywards, Etihad Guest and Lufthansa Miles & More members!

Tomorrow, 1st November, Heathrow Rewards is launching its annual mega-bonus promotion on electronics, watches and jewellery, keen to tap into the Christmas rush.

Worth noting is that World Duty Free is included this year which gives you a far broader choice of products to earn on. Only jewellery, watches and electronics in WDF are included – not perfume, alcohol or giant Toblerone.

This is an excellent opportunity to pick up a large pile of miles.  Dixons Travel is included so this is a good opportunity to cash in on a new iPhone purchase.

Here are the details of the offer, which runs from 1st November until 31st December. Remember that you can convert Heathrow Rewards points into Avios, Virgin Flying Club, Emirates Skywards, Etihad Guest and Lufthansa Miles & More miles as well as into Heathrow shopping vouchers.

If you are not already a member, you can earn an additional 3,000 points (=3,000 miles) when you spend £150 in one day via this promo.

Heathrow Rewards

Here are the deals for 2017:

15,000 extra points when you spend £4000 or more at Bulgari, Cartier, Dixons Travel, Harrods Fine Watch Room, Rolex, Swarovski, Tiffany, Watches of Switzerland, World Duty Free

5,000 extra points when you spend £1500 – £3999 at Bulgari, Cartier, Dixons Travel, Harrods Fine Watch Room, Rolex, Swarovski, Tiffany, Watches of Switzerland, World Duty Free

1,000 extra points when you spend £350 – £1499 at Dixons Travel, Swarovski, Tiffany, World Duty Free

500 extra points when you spend £150 – £349 at Dixons Travel, Swarokski, Tiffany, World Duty Free

I took advantage of this deal a few years ago when I bought my wife a watch at Watches of Switzerland.  I then sat on the points – over 20,000 in total, including double base points as I was a premium member of Heathrow Rewards – and converted them to Avios when BA joined the programme. They were offering a 100% transfer bonus at the time, and I netted almost 50,000 Avios if I remember! That was a serious rebate on the price paid for the watch.

Full details will be available on the Heathrow Rewards website from tomorrow.

  1. Can anyone work out how many HR points i would end up with if i spent £4500 during this promotion how many HR points i would end up with? I have never used my HR card before so i would assume i would get the 3000 bonus for spending over £150, which would trigger the 3000 bonus but would the £4350 left be at the premium membership rate of 2 points per £? Thanks guys

    • You only get the 3,000 if you signed up using the Avios promo code originally.

      Good question about the 2nd bit though ….

      • I suggest you look at what the T&Cs say.

        It was my understanding that the 3,000 bonus points is time limited after your registration.
        From memory you are eligible for double points only once you’ve spent £500 and then you continue to receive double points for the remainder of the calendar year. If you can, split your spend into £500 and then £4,000. Refer to the T&Cs to make sure there is no restriction that the double points does not take effect a day after you become eligible (i.e. take a copy of the T&Cs to use to support any challenge later!)

        As a reminder there are also double points on offer if you reserve and collect (although these did not go through automatically for me so I have contacted their support to get them added).

    I’m looking to buy myself a Tag Heuer watch on the 10th which will qualify for the 15,000 extra points. I have a heathrow rewards card but not used it yet so this will be its first purchase, qualifying for the 3000 bonus for spending over £150 in a single transaction however reading the T&C’s on this current promotion it says “9. Where a transaction may qualify for more than one Heathrow Rewards promotion, ‘Extra Points on Jewellery, Watches & Technology’ will take precedence.”. I’m going to call tomorrow to double check but I’m assuming this means i will get just the 15000 extras points and not the single transaction points? My Wife may buy herself something too so if she uses the rewards card first on a transaction over £150 and then i make a separate purchase of the watch does this mean i will qualify for both?

    Just as a side note i signed up for the Gold Amex (via referral) in order to make this purchase as I’ve hit my spend target for the companion voucher on my BA Premium card already. this one purchase will trigger the sign up bonus of 22,000! and then all the Heathrow reward points and amex reward points to boost! I do love this game!

    Great Blog by the way Rob. Thanks, Jon

    • Yes, you could be right – it might override the 3,000 points bonus.

      Heathrow Rewards works on a day basis, so having your wife buy something beforehand for £150 might not help. It is £150 in a day, not in a transaction. Arguably they could still disqualify you from the 3000 points on that basis because the purchase would be part of your daily spend which took you over £150.

      Perhaps easier (assuming your wife will spend £150 anyway) to open another account – needs to be at a different address, perhaps work – for her. She triggers the 3000 on her £150 spend, definitely. You may or may not get the 3000 on top of your 15000 bonus (and the base points).

      Hi John

      Did you purchase the watch and get the extra points ?

  3. I wonder if you still get the bonus if you pay with rewards vouchers? I’ve got £720 burning a hole in my pocket!

    • Yep, they’re just treated as a form of payment. I received HR points fine when paying by voucher.

  4. Michael Christie says:

    Has anyone had these extra points credited to their account ? Just called Heathrow Rewards contact number and they didnt know anythign about it

    CHeers

  5. I’m not seeing this offer on my account, only double points at Accessorise T3 and 25% extra on Rocketmiles. Is this targeted?
