Yes, you read that correctly. This week on Head for Points we are giving away 100,000 Avios points in association with the new British Airways Executive Club hotel booking partner Kaligo.
There is only one prize.
There will only be one winner.
It could be you!
The competition is being sponsored by hotel booking website Kaligo (www.kaligo.com).
Kaligo is a Singapore-based company which is already partnering with American Airlines, Air Asia, Asia Miles, Jet Privilege and US Airways Dividend Miles. The new tie-up with Avios is their first partnership with a European airline.
Kaligo has an inventory of over 300,000 hotels worldwide predominantly in the 3-star to 5-star range.
The company is effectively rebating part of its commission to you in the form of Avios. You can earn up to 20 Avios points per £1 spent on hotels which is a very decent earnings rate.
To celebrate their new partnership with the British Airways Executive Club, Kaligo is offering 3,000 or 10,000 Avios with your first booking before 31st January. This is on top of the standard Avios points you would receive from them. You need to register via this site to receive your bonus before you book your hotel.
You will receive 3,000 bonus Avios if your first booking is for £999 or less. Bookings of over £1,000 will receive 10,000 bonus Avios. If you booked a hotel which paid their highest rate of 20 Avios per £1, you would collect 30,000 Avios from a £1,000 booking!
How can you win 100,000 Avios?
First, you need to visit www.kaligo.com/ba-avios and register with Kaligo. This will make you eligible for their launch promotion of up to 10,000 bonus Avios with your next hotel booking. There is no obligation to actually make a booking. If you have already registered with Kaligo, you do not need to register again.
Second, you need to complete the automated form at the bottom of this article using the same email address. You gain one entry for filling in your email address and you can earn a second entry if you tweet about the competition.
The deadline for entries is midnight on Friday 9th January. The winner will be announced on Head for Points next week.
You can only enter if you are a UK resident – I apologise to Head for Points readers in other countries. If you are UK-based but travelling this week, you will need to email a friend back home with a link to this page to enter for you.
100,000 Avios can get you a long way. It gets two people in Economy to California, Cape Town, Barbados etc – or to Dubai or New York with 20,000 to spare! It would fly one person in Club World to Las Vegas or Antigua – or two people if you have a British Airways American Express 2-4-1 voucher to use. Even if you stay closer to home, it would get you 11 return flights to France, Germany, the Netherlands etc or 6 return flights to Italy or Spain. Taxes, fees and charges, as we all know, will be applicable *.
Please read this before you enter:
Entrants must be aged 18 years or over.
The competition will launch at 6.45am on Monday 5th January and close at midnight UK time on Friday 9th January.
