Avios has launched a new competition, “Twin to Win”. It was being promoted via their Twitter feed, although it may be linked to something else that I haven’t seen yet.
The prize is a good one – 200,000 Avios points.
There is a tiny catch, but it comes with an upside. The catch is that, if you win, the points will be isolated from your normal points and subject to special rules:
You will have to spend them in one redemption, with any remaining balance being lost
You will need to travel before 20th June
Avios will pay ALL of the taxes and charges on your booking!
It is quick and easy to enter. Simply go to this website and enter your details (deleted as now dead). You will also need to name a holiday destination which shares its name with somewhere in the UK, eg Washington. It asks for your Avios membership number but the rules say that this is an optional field, so no need to dig it out.
The closing date is 12th December. Good luck.
