This is a tricky post to write, because it has the potential to go wrong and I cannot test it myself!
However, two people I know have made transfers from Heathrow Rewards, the airport shopping loyalty scheme, to British Airways during the past 10 days.
In both cases, they received a 20% bonus on their Avios points!
There was no mention of another transfer bonus in the most recent Heathrow Rewards newsletter, or on their website. However, as BA is currently running transfer bonuses on a lot of hotel programmes and on American Express Membership Rewards transfers, it is not a total surprise.
Unfortunately, my Heathrow Rewards balance is 19 points so I can’t test this. There is also the risk that, even if there is a bonus, it may have stopped by the time you try it.
I am therefore NOT advocating that you jump in and do a huge transfer to Heathrow Rewards. However, if you were thinking about doing one, now is as good a time as any. You will have no recourse to Heathrow Rewards if you don’t get a bonus, though!
