Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win 200,000 Avios points with “Twin to Win”

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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.

    Just entered thanks, put down for Brentwood, California.

  • Bento says:

    Where it says “Holiday destination anywhere in the world” are we supposed to enter the destination we plan on visiting or is it also for a UK city that shares its name with another destination?

  • Mandy says:

    Ts&Cs say winner can redeem for 4 economy flights to Miami “or an alternate Avios destination”. It’s not clear if the 200k could be used for premium travel, or just economy.
