Avios is giving away 10 lots of 18,000 points across two separate social media competitions at the moment.  Both close at midnight on Monday if you want to have a go.

First up is a Twitter competition.

This is what you need to do:

Anyone over the age of 18 who ReTweets the following post on Twitter including their dream destination in the copy using #WinningWithAvios and tagging @AviosUK will be entered into a Prize Draw to win one of 5 prizes of 18,000 Avios.

So, something like (feel free to cut and paste!) ‘New York #winningwithavios @aviosuk’ will do the job.  Use that disposable Twitter account which I know you all keep for use with HfP competitions!

The Facebook version is very similar.

Here is how you enter this one:

Anyone over the age of 18 who comments on the following post on Facebook including their dream destination in the copy, using the hashtag #WinningWithAvios will be entered into a Prize Draw to win one of 5 prizes of 18,000 Avios.

The post you need to respond to is pinned to the top of the Avios UK Facebook page which you will find here.

There were 466 entries at the time of writing so, whilst your odd are not great, they are not so terrible either.

Note that Avios is sticking to letter of UK competition law and has banned residents of Northern Ireland from taking part in either draw.

Remember that both competitions end at midnight on Monday.

    I’ve entered both competitions so fingers crossed! If it’s not me then hopefully a fellow HFP reader will win them! Cheers Rob

  • Corrine says:

    Oooooh thank you, this is why I love this site! I am so avios poor after our last trip, would love to win this 😉

    Just under 1300 comments on the Facebook page currently, a lot of them are the Avios page themselves as well as a good number of people who haven’t followed the rules and didn’t include #WinningWithAvios in the post. So the chances of winning are probably quiet good if you do it correctly.

  • Graeme says:

    Thanks Raffles! I wouldn’t have seen these otherwise.

    Fingers crossed someone on here will win some – you know, those who need them most!

  • Yan says:

    Thank you Raffles! I’ve just won a prize through Twitter. As said above I wouldn’t have entered without reading your blog
