Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

10 more free Avios via Avios Suitcase

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

If you have been taking part in the Avios Suitcase ‘game’ on Facebook, another badge has been added.

Avios is getting less generous with this promotion as it goes along.  This new badge is only worth 10 Avios points.  In order to earn it, you need to share a badge on your Facebook timeline promoting the fact that you can earn points for joining car breakdown group RAC.

Avios Suitcase

You can adjust your Facebook settings at the point you share the badge so that only you see it, not your friends.

If you haven’t played Avios Suitcase before, you can earn a couple of hundred Avios points by completing all of the existing tasks.  I seem to have 15 badges now.  You can learn more about it in this article.

    I just set my Dad up with an account and got him 470 Avios.

    There were 3 quizes about the Big Reward (Paris, Rome and New York) which are still working which I don’t think were mentioned on HFP, the link for the Paris quiz is below, just change the id to be 37 and 38 in the link to see the other 2.

    In fact you can see all the stickers that have been available by starting with an id of 1 of going up from there, not every number has a sticker though and most of the ones that do don’t work now.
