Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Quadruple Heathrow Rewards points with Apple at Dixons Travel

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Dixons Travel is running a promotion with Heathrow Rewards during March which could prove attractive.

The company is offering bonus Heathrow Rewards points on all Apple branded products:


You receive double points for spending £300-£499

You receive triple points for spending £500-£999

You receive quadruple points for spending £1,000+

A £1,200 MacBook would earn you 4,800 Heathrow Rewards points, which would convert into 4,800 Avios, Virgin Flying Club or Miles & More miles.  You could also claim £48 of Heathrow shopping vouchers.

You can combine this with the ‘home delivery’ promotion as well.

When you are travelling within the EU or UK during March and spend £300 or more at Heathrow, you can have your products delivered to your home for free.  You will even receive a bonus of 100 Heathrow Rewards points for doing this.

Your purchases will arrive within 3-5 working days.  Heathrow guarantees them for safe delivery up to a maximum of £2,000.

Full details of both of these promotions can be found by logging in to the Heathrow Rewards website.

If you are not already a Heathrow Rewards member, you can earn 1,000 Avios easily via their current sign-up bonus.

    Sounds a great deal – thanks Raffles.

    Just a word of warning for business travellers, you obviously won’t get a VAT receipt when buying ‘duty free’ so often the real cost of good purchased from Dixons Travel ends up being significantly higher than buying from a normal supplier (say the Apple Store) and claiming the VAT back. That’s caught me out a few times…

    • Rob says:

      Surely, if you show them an EU boarding pass, you WILL get a VAT receipt. They have no choice.

      • Alan says:

        Indeed, intra-EU they only match the prices down to duty free levels, they can’t actually provide it duty free so you potentially do even better with the getting VAT back on top if you’re a VAT-registered company!

        • David says:

          Well they don’t match down to duty free levels, but it is a lower duty inclusive price, so if you were going to VAT reclaim on a business basis, you can only be up as a result of buying it there.

          Just make SURE they record you are on a European VAT Area flight – they (Dixons) obviously have a commercial advantage if you are on a non-European VAT Area flight as they can pocket more money, and … they have been known to make mistakes with which flight you are on.

    Strange, I got the email on this earlier this week but my wife hasn’t, has anyone else had the offer sent to them?

    • Rob says:

      It’s on the website and they even advertise it instore (I was there yesterday) so not targeted.

  • CV says:

    Just a mention that the 1000 points from the VS promo worked out ok, points credited to Heathrow Rewards account (set up on iphone whilst on train to Heathrow at the weekend!) and swiftly transferred over to Avios.

  • Jonathan says:

    Yes I got my 1000 bonus points (+100 sign up bonus as well) for using the Heathrow car park. Do remember if you use the Heathrow business and long stay car parks you should provide your rewards number so you get the points for that as well.
