TODAY ONLY: Win £100 in Heathrow shopping vouchers with Official Heathrow Parking

TODAY ONLY we are running a one-day competition on Head for Points in association with Official Heathrow Parking.

One lucky reader will win £100 of Heathrow shopping vouchers, valid at any participating shop, restaurant or bar at Heathrow Airport*.

Introducing Official Heathrow Parking

Official Heathrow Parking is the dedicated airport parking service run directly by Heathrow Airport. For the business or leisure traveller who is primarily concerned with convenience, Offical Heathrow Parking is by far the easiest solution – letting you park as near as 45 metres from the terminals!

You may not be aware of the full range of products available. These include (services vary by terminal):

Heathrow Short Stay – no paperwork, no shuttle bus, you keep your keys, walk to the terminal. Pre-book for great savings compared to the drive up price.

Heathrow Valet Parking – drop your car on the terminal forecourt and when you return it will be waiting for you

Heathrow Pod Parking – available at Terminal 5 only, park close to the terminal and transfer in a driverless pod (see photo below)

Heathrow Business – available at all terminals except for Terminal 4 with a shorter bus journey than the long stay car park

Heathrow Meet & Greet – leave your car in a dedicated area in the short stay car park, staff will park your car and have it waiting for you when you return (pre-book only)

Heathrow Long Stay – a cost-effective option for longer trips with a shuttle bus to the terminal, you keep your keys

Heathrow Drop & Ride – available at terminal 4 only, leave your car at the reception area in the long stay car park and immediately jump on the shuttle bus, staff will park your car for you

Whatever your parking requirements, the added convenience and unrivalled reputation of Official Heathrow Parking should make it a serious option on your next business or leisure trip.  You can check out the website here.

  2. Just checked prices and the meet and greet was it’s usual 30pct higher than the competition- yawn

    • Didn’t know there was an alternative for Meet & Greet at LHR. Which company?

      • Sam Wardill says:

        I used Maple Manor last time booked via Holiday Extras. They seem well reviewed and I had no complaints. They were much cheaper than Heathrow.

  5. Shouldn’t the Ts & Cs state it ends st 23:59 today rather than midnight? Didn’t midnight on the 14th actually happen last night?

    • Possibly …. 🙂

      They’ve always said midnight I think.

    • RussellH says:


      Which is why timetables, whether, rail, ferry or airline always say 2359 or 0001, not 2400 or 0000. The great USA, of course, excepted, where they have still not realised that there are 24 hours in a day, but that times post 1200 are bold.

  6. Any chance you can remove the form’s region restriction? After all, your (UK) readers like me are often, you know, travelling 😉

  7. Nate1309 says:

    I do love the POD

  8. Graham Walsh says:

    Same issue for me, travelling in Oslo this week. VPN is not available as our VPN is to our Oslo office.

  9. Sam Wardill says:

    I stopped using LHR parking after I got stung for a late pickup. They charge the day rate if you overstay which, for the on-site car park, is 4 x the pre-booked rate .

  10. Any chance of a way of entering for those of us who don’t like social media and don’t have a twitter, instagram or facebook account? I keep getting told I need to log in ‘for verification’ 🙁

    O/T re bonus 1000 Avios offer – Live Chat

    [Ricky] The 1000 bonus Avios from our offer will be awarded by the 30th January 2017.
    [Ricky] You can see the terms and conditions clicking this link –

    Suggest you/ we diarise this, Raffles

    • the real harry says:

      yep but nothing more I can do until after 30th January. Maybe the shopping portal 1000s are getting added manually

      • Sussex Bantam says:

        I’m in the same position – shopping portal transactions haven’t triggered the 1000 bonus but other types of transaction have. Seems odd – but will need to wait until end January I guess.

    • If this is for collecting with a new partner they post much much quicker than that!

      • the real harry says:

        not for shopping, apparently

        made 7 or 8 purchases and the base points only started posting now – after about 4 weeks

        • the real harry says:

          04/10/2016 Pending 6

        • I’m meaning the bonus posted quickly after the partner earnings did – so hopefully now your base points have come through the bonus might make it through this week?? Will be interesting to see…

    • Heathrow rewards bonus posted verz quicklz too.

  12. the real harry says:

    O/T check Amex offers online a/c

    Donald Russell £10 credit for £60 spend – combines nicely with any other offers out there – there are always tons to find, easiest being Groupon

    top meat

    • 100 off 150 spend at Naked wines on one of my cards, should stack with the £60 voucher freely available so approx £210 of wine for £50

      • the real harry says:

        ooh was it £100 off £150 – saw Naked Wines & skipped on – I’m going back 🙂

        • the real harry says:

          nice one 🙂

          Naked Wines

          Spend £150 or more, get £100 back

          Save to Card to get a £100 statement credit on an eligible transaction of £150 or more online at Naked Wines by 27 November 2016. Valid once per Card. Terms, delivery and payment restrictions apply.

        • the real harry says:

          wife & I both got it – anybody care to recommend the decent £210+ cases 🙂 (that we’re going to get for £50 lol)

        • I skipped straight over that too, a genuinely worthwhile offer, so I’ve ordered 18 bottles for a smidgen over £50 after stacking with the £60 voucher in the link. Email confirmation of Amex came through immediately… happy days 🙂

      • You sure it’s stackable? Previous Amex offers have been through a code / link rather than payment card cash back.

        • the real harry says:


          OFFER TERMS

          •Only one statement credit per UK Card.

          •Available online only at

          •Market Place deals and Angel orders are excluded from this offer.

          •Offer only valid on deliveries to the UK.

          •Payment is required in full on the American Express Card to which the offer is saved.

        • the real harry says:

          should be able to get free wine out of this eg

          many more vouchers around

          so find a £150 wine case, apply your £60 voucher, get your £150 Amex statement credit, you’re £10 up 🙂

        • Nice. Shame not on any of our cards…

        • Don’t think that would work Harry as you still need to spend £150. So min of £210-£60-£100 = £50

        • the real harry says:

          cracked it 🙂

          just going to order then I’ll tell you 🙂

        • Harry are you not committed to paying them an ongoing monthly amount now that you have redeemed their voucher?

        • @Liz. You can easily cancel

        • The Naked Wines deal is stacking with the naked wines ‘Amex16’ code available online earlier this year! Code gets you a £100 discount at the checkout so I upped my basket to £256.32 so the cost payable still activates the current spend £150 save to card offer.

          Go via first.

          -£100 Amex16 voucher
          £156.23 paid on Gold card with the offer.

          27 bottles of plonk for £56.23 / £2.08 a bottle 🙂

          Got Amex email after about 15 minutes to say deal redeemed so all good.

          Wife has it on one of her cards too……….could be an interesting Christmas.

        • the real harry says:

          Liz – no, because I declined that

          But if you didn’t see it, perhaps you end up sending £20 to them before you see your statement

          nae problemo – you contact them, cancel it – & they refund you

          No financial risk whatsoever

        • Ok thanks

        • the real harry says:

          offer was too good 🙂

          looks like Amex have pulled it – try & save to your card

        • Looks like it – just went to try and redeem and no email. Mine is saved to card so I will call Amex and ask them to give me the credit.

        • the real harry says:

          pls let me know how you get on – still got to redeem my wife’s offer – which is saved to card

        • Email got delayed – now come through saying offer redeemed so presumably ok

        • the real harry says:

          great – I’ll give it a go later then 🙂 (when my wife’s not looking)

  13. Can you spend the voucher at heathrow parking?

    • O/T Tesco Delivery Saver

      A while back there used to be regular bonus points/50% off offers to sign up for these plans.

      Anyone know if these still exist?

      • No. You get the first month free and can use CC vouchers to pay.

      • We got Delivery Saver half price in 2014 for £30, usual price £60. After that we cancelled for a bit hoping for them to offer us another £30 for the year but it didn’t transpire so payed the full whack.

        • We did the same, but then moved to Ocado instead of paying… they keep offering me 3 month trials…

    • Don’t see why not.

  16. TGLoyalty says:

    OT but linked to Heathrow

    For a limited time only you can now turn your Skywards Miles into even more Heathrow Rewards points. Until 31 December 2016, every 6,000 Skywards Miles you redeem will earn 3,000 Heathrow Rewards points instead of the usual 2,000. Meaning an even better reason to get to the airport early before your flight, so that you can explore myriad shopping opportunities in Europe’s best airport

    • Note this points are ring-fenced and cannot be transferred to Avios. I did an article on this recently.

      • TGLoyalty says:

        Yep, but if you have 6k skywards points you can’t use for anything else then some money off your next Heathrow shopping trip is better than nothing
