Starting tomorrow – and just for the Summer peak – Dixons Travel is letting you collect Avios points on all of your duty free electrical purchases in Heathrow Terminal 5.
Coupled with the potential to earn additional Avios via Heathrow Rewards this could potentially be very lucrative.
The earnings rate is surprisingly decent.
You will earn 2 Avios per £1 on transactions up to £500 and 4 Avios per £1 on transactions over £500. All products at Dixons Travel are included.
You will need to show your British Airways Executive Club or avios.com card when making your purchase.
You will also earn the standard 1 Heathrow Rewards point per £1 spent, doubled to 2 points per £1 for those on the ‘premium’ scheme who spent over £500 last year. These convert 1 : 1 to Avios points, as well as Miles & More, Virgin Flying Club or Etihad Guest miles or for Heathrow shopping vouchers.
If you are on the Heathrow Rewards premium tier, you could potentially earn (4 + 2) 6 Avios per £1 for your spending – plus any Avios earned via your credit card!
Remember that you can arrange for purchases of £300 or more at Heathrow to be delivered FREE to your home. This saves you from taking a new product with you on holiday.
Dixons is only offering Avios points from 1st July to 31st August – it is not going to be a permanent deal. It is also only valid in the two airside shops at Heathrow Terminal 5. No other airports or terminals are participating.
