UPDATE – JUNE 2022: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
You will receive a mystery bonus of 40% to 55% when you buy Marriott Bonvoy points by 15th July 2022. Click here to buy.
Marriott Rewards has launched a new promotion offering 2,000 bonus Avios (or other airline miles) at 250 hotels across Europe this Summer.
You need to stay for a minimum of two weekend nights (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) between now and 13th September.
You need to use code M11 if booking via marriott.com. The code is added automatically if you use the links from the promo page.
This deal is only valid for people who have their Marriott Rewards account set to collect airline miles instead of Marriott points from their stays. Some hotels may have a separate points bonus on offer for points collectors.
As always with these promotions, you need to take care that you are not paying for the 2,000 Avios via an inflated rate. I checked the Marriott York, for instance, and the promotional rate was the same as the standard cancellable rate which was good. At a Courtyard in Berlin, however, you had to give up free breakfast to get the 2,000 Avios rate.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (June 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards.
Until 18th July 2022 there is an astonishing special offer on these cards. You get 50,000 Avios on the Avios Plus Mastercard and 10,000 Avios on the free Avios Mastercard. You can apply here. We strongly recommend getting the Avios Plus card whilst this offer is running.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
SPECIAL OFFER: The sign-up bonus on Amex Gold is increased from 20,000 Membership Rewards points to 30,000 Membership Rewards points until 19th July 2022. This card is free for the first year.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
