Heathrow Rewards, the Heathrow Airport shopping loyalty programme, has launched a special offer until the end of March.
You will receive double points – 2 per £1 spent – on all transactions in Terminal 3 and Terminal 5 until 31st March.
Converted to Avios, that means 2 Avios points per £1 spent.
The wording is a bit odd, to be honest. It reads:
Collect double Heathrow Rewards points when you spend at the airport during 1 February and 31 March 2016. Whether you’re treating yourself or gifting for someone else, you can look forward to boosting your Executive Club balance or redeeming for a shopping voucher on your next visit.
Receive double points on all transactions in Terminal 3 and Terminal 5 at Heathrow including Official Heathrow Parking and Heathrow Express trains.
So, what does this mean?
This promotion is being run in association with British Airways, who use Terminal 3 and Terminal 5. That explains why those two terminals are specifically mentioned. The email confirmation I received after registering did mention the ‘Double points in Terminal 3 and Terminal 5’ promotion.
However, if I were you, I would register even if you will only be using other terminals before the end of March. It only takes a couple of seconds and it would be a shame to miss out in case other transactions do trigger the bonus.
Note that double points are restricted to the first 10 transactions, so if you are planning a major purchase in March you may want to hold off using your card for smaller purchases before then.
I will be in T2 on Tuesday so I will buy a magazine and see what happens.
PS. Don’t forget that you can still receive 3,000 Avios (or Virgin, Etihad, Emirates or Lufthansa) miles by joining Heathrow Rewards and spending £100 in one day before the end of February. Full details of this Heathrow Rewards offer are here.
