If all goes to plan, we should have a fantastic competition to win a very large pile of Avios exclusively for Head for Points readers over the next week or so.
In the meantime, you might want to have a look at this Avios / Avis competition to win 100,000 Avios points.
It has been knocking around for a few weeks but I missed it until yesterday. The deadline for entries is Wednesday 30th so don’t hang around.
Entering is easy. All you need to do is visit this website and fill in your name and address. Note that the (optional) box for your Avios account number is for an avios.com number and not a British Airways Executive Club one.
No purchase is required and you don’t need to have rented from Avis recently either.
There is no need to watch the video, but it has lots of nice Irish scenery in it – but not many jokes. Sorry Jarlath ….
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (August 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 with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
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.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
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.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
