News in brief:
Earn 500 Le Club AccorHotels points from Laithwaites
There are few ways of earning Le Club AccorHotels points without staying in their hotels. This is particularly frustrating if you just a few points short of another €40 discount voucher.
You can convert Finnair Plus points to Accor at the rate of 7:1, oddly. As Finnair is an American Express Membership Rewards partner, this is a highly dilutive but possible route to boost your Accor balance.
This makes the new Accor tie-up with UK wine group Laithwaites more interesting than it would usually be. Via this link, you can get a case of white, red or mixed wine, two Dartington crystal glasses, free delivery and 500 Le Club AccorHotels points.
The downside is that you are forcibly enrolled in the Laithwaite’s Wine Plan. You will need to call them to un-enroll or you will find a fresh case of wine appearing on your doorstep every 12 weeks.
Double Heathrow Rewards points on fashion
If you’re heading through Heathrow over Easter – or indeed at any point until 30th April – Heathrow Rewards is offering double points on fashion and fashion accessory purchases over £250 in one transaction.
Remember that Heathrow Rewards points convert 1:1 into Avios, Virgin Flying Club, Lufthansa Miles & More, Etihad Guest or Emirates Skywards miles. You would receive 2 miles per £1 spent via this offer.
Oddly for Heathrow Rewards, you must opt in to this promotion – it is not automatic. This link takes you to the right page.
Participating stores are Bally, Burberry, Bottega Veneta, Case, Cath Kidston, Christian Dior, Gucci, Hackett of London, Harrods, John Lewis, Jack Wills, Kurt Geiger, Miu Miu, Mulberry, Paul Smith, Prada, Reiss, Rolling Luggage, Smythson, Sunglass Hut, Ted Baker and Zara.

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.
