Heathrow Rewards has launched its annual bonus promotion on electronics and jewellery, keen to tap into the Christmas rush!
Here are the details of the offer, which runs from now until 31st December. Remember that you can convert Heathrow Rewards points into Avios, Virgin Flying Club and Lufthansa Miles & More miles, as well as into Heathrow shopping vouchers.
15,000 extra points when you spend £3,750 or more at Tiffany, Omega, Mappin & Webb, or Watches of Switzerland
7,500 extra points when you spend £1250 – £3749.99 or more at Tiffany, Omega, Mappin & Webb, Watches of Switzerland or Dixons Travel (7,500 is the cap for Dixons Travel purchases, even if over £3750)
3,000 extra points when you spend £500 – £1249.99 or more at Links of London, Swarovski or Dixons Travel
750 extra points when you spend £175 – £499.99 at Links of London, Swarovski or Dixons Travel
I took advantage of this deal a couple of years ago when I bought my wife a watch at Watches of Switzerland. (They will order items in for you if you want, if you are willing to ring and pay a deposit a couple of weeks before you travel.)
I then sat on the points – probably about 20,000 in total, including the base points for the watch – and converted them to Avios when BA joined the programme last year. They were offering a 100% transfer bonus at the time, and I netted almost 50,000 miles if I remember! That is a serious rebate on the price paid for the watch.
Even 3,000 points on a £500+ spend at Dixons Travel looks attractive if you were planning to buy an iPad air for Christmas. At the top end, this deal is slightly less generous than last year – the threshold for 15,000 points has increased from £2,500 to £3,750. Tiffany is included for the first time in 2013, replacing Bulgari.
