Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Coming on Monday: Win 100,000 Avios points with Bink and Head for Points

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

On Monday morning we will be launching a major new competition, exclusive to Head for Points readers.

In association with new loyalty app Bink, we are giving away 100,000 Avios points to one very lucky reader.

Bink is a new app-based loyalty platform which allows you to collect Avios at High Street retailers without showing your Avios card or the Bink app.  All you need to do it register your payment cards and your Avios number with Bink.


When you make a payment in a participating shop using a registered payment card, Bink will automatically add Avios points to your account.

The first partner is PizzaExpress.  We have tested PizzaExpress with Bink and it worked perfectly.  In a tough assignment, I sent Anika and my wife down to PizzaExpress where they ate, paid with an Amex card registered in Bink, and a few days later 260 Avios appeared in Anika’s account.  Easy.

You will learn more about Bink on Monday.  More importantly, you will learn how to win 100,000 Avios points!

Do NOT download the Bink app today – wait until Monday when we will explain exactly what you need to do to enter.

On the other hand, if you do not already have an account, as opposed to a British Airways Executive Club account, you may want to open one here at  You will need it in order to use Bink and to enter the competition.

    Re: pizza express bonus 1000 avios, did anyone’s credit to Avios yet?

    • Alex W says:

      Yes, the base Avios came on 30 Nov and the 1000 bonus (from collecting with a new partner) came a few days later.

      • Nick Haley says:

        There were two promos weren’t there? 1) any new collection partner meant 1000 avios and then 2) using bink and pizza express meant another separate 1000? Then yes of course there was the x Avios per pound too.

        Don’t think my part two has showed up, unless I got confused.

        • Rob says:

          Avios deliberately misled you. The small print to the PizzaExpress email said that the 1k is the same ‘new partner’ bonus.

    • Rob says:

      This is the new partner bonus (hidden in small print) so if you got that already, you’re not getting another 1k.

  • Dark says:

    I downloaded and activated bink two weeks ago, started using it with pizza express, points from pizza express awarded few days later, plus extra 1000 point for using new retailer. Now waititng for instructions how to enter the competition for 100k points! 🙂

  • Ja says:

    Looking on Avios site under Pizza Express they are fully supporting Blink so I will probably only have the Avios card loaded up on the app at the moment till it’s establushed. Will be curious to know what other shops can use direct with payment card and have Avios credited.

  • Anon says:

    If/when this ties up with using a Pizza Express gift cards that would be good.

    Semi O/T: seen the £5/meal at PE & O2 Priority? Quite handy.

  • Sam says:

    I dont have smartphone can I still get this deal by downloading the app onto my PC?
