Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Exclusive: Get 100% bonus using Heathrow Rewards for shopping vouchers

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

If you have a stack of Heathrow Rewards points sitting around, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for to unload them.

(Heathrow Rewards is the loyalty scheme covering the shops, restaurants, money exchange and parking facilities at Heathrow Airport.  You earn 1 point for every £1 you spend, or 2 points per £1 once you’ve spent over £500 in a year and been upgraded to the premium tier.  Points can be redeemed for Heathrow shopping vouchers, parking vouchers or miles with a variety of airlines including British Airways, Miles & More, Emirates, Etihad and Virgin.)

Heathrow Rewards

Starting today, and running until next Monday 29th May, you will receive a 100% bonus when you transfer your Heathrow Rewards points into Heathrow shopping vouchers.

Every 250 points you transfer will get you a £5 Heathrow voucher.  This can be spent on virtually anything in the airport, except foreign currency.

This is a very strong deal.  It makes little sense to redeem your points for airline miles at 1 mile per point when you could get 2p of shopping vouchers instead.

Heathrow Rewards has been running a series of 100% bonuses on transfers of points into airline miles.  These may or may not come back in the future.  However, even if you hold off in the anticipation of a 100% bonus at some point, you would still be ‘paying’ 1p per mile compared to cashing in now – and that assumes that airline transfer bonuses will come back.

If you’ve got a stash of Heathrow Rewards points, and as long as you are passing through Heathrow on a regular basis, you should have a serious think about redeeming this week.

The offer will be live at some point during today.  If it isn’t showing when you log in, I recommend waiting for a couple of hours and trying again.

    Just did £150 shopping at duty free, at check out, they applied £10 discount plus a free Elizabeth Arden cream. No idea what is the offer for, but had to buy something extra to take me to the £150 limit to trigger bonus.

  • sang says:

    I have 42200, worth 420 pounds, but when i try to convert, the maximum its allowing is 100 vouchers, which will amount to 500 pounds.

    Is there a limit on conversion?

    • Alan says:

      Have you tried doing a repeat conversion after the first one? They may have just limited their system to batches of 100…

    • Rob says:

      Per transaction, but not overall.

  • Wayne says:

  • WorldTraveller says:

    Heads up, they send the vouchers by mail instead of instant confirmation via email! Here is the message I received, so plan accordingly…

    “Please allow up to 10 working days for voucher delivery in the mail. Vouchers are delivered to the address registered to your Heathrow Rewards card – please check this address is correct and up-to-date before proceeding.”

    • Alan says:

      The shopping vouchers have always come by post, though? Not sure where email delivery was mentioned?

      • Rob says:

        There may be some confusion with the ‘instant redemption’ option?

  • Harj says:

    Anybody got their vouchers yet? Flying out on Saturday so hoping they come in the next few days!

    • Rob says:

      Not got mine and ordered on first day.

      • EwanG says:

        Still waiting for mine too and ordered on first day like Rob.
        They do say to allow 10 working days for delivery – although I have a feeling they may have underestimated demand which has come from this coverage on HFP. Will they have enough vouchers…?

        • EwanG says:

          Just arrived this morning, sent Royal Mail Signed For.
