Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win 18,000 Avios in a new British Airways free draw

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If you want to add 18,000 Avios to your balance (and who wouldn’t), there is a new competition over on the British Airways website this week.

In association with British Airways partner Avis – although the exact link to Avis is not clear – 100 Executive Club members can each win 18,000 Avios points.

British Airways Avios competition

To enter all you need to do is visit this page of the British Airways website and enter your name, Executive Club Membership Number and your email address by 11th October.

You can enter once per day so technically starting today you can enter 8 times in total.  As the T&Cs state that it’s one entry per person per day, I assume you can get additional entries if there are more than one Executive Club members living in your household.

The winners will be notified by email by 1st November and the Avios rewarded within 8 weeks.

The full terms and conditions can be found here.  Good luck.  Let’s see how many winners we can get from the HfP readership …..
