Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Ever heard of Jin Jiang J-Club? They are a new Avios partner.

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

I have been travelling for 25 years.  I have been seriously interested in the world of miles and points for at least 15.  And yet, somehow, I have never come across Jin Jiang J-Club before.

All that is about to change, because British Airways Executive Club has added them as a hotel partner.  Should any of you have any J-Club points (and, to be honest, of the thousands of you who will read this I am willing to bet that we are talking double figures max!) you can now convert them at the ratio of 6,000 J-Club points to 600 Avios.

Jin Jiang JClub Avios

If you are travelling to China, you will have come across Jin Jiang.  It is a big company operating under the Jin Jiang Hotels, Jin Jiang Inn, Bestay Hotel Express and Goldmet Inn brands.

I am quietly impressed with British Airways for seeking out niche partners such as this as they push forward with making Avios a global loyalty brand.

Full details of ALL British Airways hotel partners can be found here.

    Spending £1 (roughly 10 RMB) gets you a maximum of 60 points, which is convertible to 6 avios. Not a bad deal.

    Is there a points arbitrage opportunity here?
