Head for Points and hotel booking site Kaligo.com, which awards Avios points with every hotel you book, are running an EXCLUSIVE promotion this week.
It is a simple, straightforward and potentially lucrative one.
If you spend over £350 on hotels before midnight on Sunday 31st January, across one or numerous bookings, you will receive 5,000 bonus Avios points.
These points are in addition to the base Avios points you will receive for your booking.
The stays can be booked at any point until January 2017 – a full year.
You MUST register before you book at this promotional website in order to receive the bonus.
As usual with such promotions, you need to check your pricing before you book. Kaligo.com is not always the cheapest place to book – it depends on the property. However, when you factor in the value of the 5,000 bonus Avios points – plus the base Avios you earn from the stay – they should be looking pretty good.
Remember that you will usually not earn points for your room spend in any hotel loyalty programme linked to the property you book if you use Kaligo.com (or indeed any third-party hotel booking site). Depending on the hotel, you may receive status benefits or points for your food and drink spend.
This offer only runs until midnight on Sunday. I would start to think about your hotel plans for the next few months and see if you can find £350-worth which you can divert to Kaligo.com!
It is fair to say that Kaligo.com’s customer service is excellent – their representatives even pop up on social media to answer queries – so you should have no concerns at all about your bonus posting properly. The company is also very punctual at posting your Avios posts once you have checked out.
Thanks to the team at Kaligo.com for making this exclusive deal available to Head for Points readers.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (August 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 with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
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.
