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.
