Here is advance notice that we are running another exciting competition next week on Head for Points.
To celebrate the move of the final airlines into the new Terminal 2 at Heathrow last month, we have teamed up with the Plaza Premium lounge in Terminal 2 to offer seven prize packages, each worth £80.
Each winner will receive entry to a Plaza Premium lounge at Heathrow PLUS a 30-minute ila signature massage in their impressive spa.
Even if you can already access the Plaza Premium lounge via Priority Pass or Lounge Club, the added bonus of the massage means that it is still worth entering. Winners can choose to receive either one or two prize packages depending on whether they normally travel with a partner or alone.
The prize will be valid in any of the following three lounges:
Plaza Premium departure lounge in Heathrow Terminal 2 (now open)
Plaza Premium arrivals lounge in Heathrow Terminal 2 (opening later in 2014)
Plaza Premium departure lounge in Heathrow Terminal 4 (opening in early 2015)
The vouchers will be valid until May 2015, so if you are likely to be using Terminal 2 or Terminal 4 before then – or are willing to come over to the Terminal 2 arrivals lounge from another terminal – you should definitely enter.
Full details of how to win will be on Head for Points on Monday.
How to get FREE airport lounge access via UK credit cards (May 2022)
As a reminder, here are the four options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:
The Platinum Card from American Express comes with two free Priority Pass cards, one for you and one for a supplementary cardholder. Each card admits two so a family of four gets in free. You get access to all 1,300 lounges in the Priority Pass network – search it here.
The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Avios, if you apply by 1st June 2022.
If you have a small business, consider American Express Business Platinum instead.
Additional lounge visits are charged at £20. You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card.
There is no annual fee for Amex Gold in Year 1 and you get a 20,000 points sign-up bonus. Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.
HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard gets you get a free LoungeKey card, allowing you access to the LoungeKey network. Guests are charged at £20 although it may be cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card for your partner.
The card has a fee of £195 and there are strict financial requirements to become a HSBC Premier customer. Full details are in my HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard review.
