Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Superb Heathrow Rewards deal …. 1000 Avios / Flying Club / Miles & More for £10 spend!

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

Since BAA WorldPoints relaunched as Heathrow Rewards last year, the sign-up bonuses have been pretty weak, to be honest.  Now we have a real return to form.

In conjunction with Virgin Atlantic, Heathrow Rewards is offering 1,000 points to new members who sign up and spend £10 in a single day at Heathrow before 31 May.

1000 Heathrow Rewards points can be converted into 1000 Avios, 1000 Virgin Flying Club miles, 1000 Lufthansa Miles & More miles or a £10 Heathrow shopping voucher.

Heathrow Rewards

Here are the rules:

1. Offer is only available to new members of the Heathrow Rewards programme who join using the above link or register their card and enter promotion code VAFEB14 before 31 May 2014.

2. 1000 WorldPoints will be awarded when you spend £10 in a single day before 31 May 2014. Excludes Bureaux de Change purchases. One offer per member on the first £10 spend only.

The link to sign up is here.

If you are already a member, you have a couple of options:

You could sign up again under a different post and email address (work vs home etc).  As long as you send the miles to a different scheme to your other Heathrow Rewards account (eg to BAEC instead of avios.com) you should be OK.

You could sign up someone who is in your BA or avios.com household account, as you would still benefit from the miles once they had been transferred to their airline account.

Do try to take advantage of this promotion, as Heathrow Rewards bonuses do not get any better.

    The official heathrow parking says you can collect Heathrow Reward points through their website. If I purchase parking for the summer – does anyone know if the points go on straight away (as i pressume the payment is taken straight away also) and therefore count towards this promotion?

  • Anon says:

    Does Heathrow Rewards encompass every shop in Heathrow then? I don’t really know how it works.

    • Rob says:

      Yes, everything, landside and airside, plus the car parks and Heathrow Express.

      • Charlie says:

        I probably spend more money on the short term car parks than anything else (picking up friends and family)!

        Hope I can get some Heathrow rewards for that!

        • Ed says:

          Parking is probably the easiest way to get the points if you are local or passing. Park up for just over an hour – go get a coffee and leave. Parking costs exactly £10 for 1-2 hours in the short-stay.

          • vindaloo says:

            Parking is also the best way to spend the points. You get 2p per point, versus 1 Avios per point. If, like me, you spend a lot on Heathrow parking, you effectively get 2% cash back on your spend, and this sign -up bonus is worth £20.

    It seems to only be allowing one sign up per address? Cannot add wife?

  • Frankie McPolin says:

    They seem to only be offering 100 points now… not 1000 🙁

  • Frankie McPolin says:

    No need to reply Tim. I guess the T&Cs are stated when you log into Virgin – I don’t have a Virgin account. Thanks for explaining though

    • Rob says:

      As long as the Virgin code is in the ‘Promo Code’ box on the signup form you’ll be fine. What is even better is that the promo runs until May, so if the bonus doesn’t hit you can still point them to the promo and they can’t deny it ever existed!
