Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Important dates for your diary – offers about to close which you shouldn’t miss (Aug ’17)

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

Here is the latest edition of our regular feature which summarises offers that are ending soon.

It pulls together the different deals mentioned on our Top Avios Points Earning Offers, Top Hotel Bonus Points Offers and Top UK Credit Card Offers pages.

Miles and points offers which are about to close

As usual at this time of year, it is fairly quiet until the end of month.  The only deals worth flagging are 15,000 American Airlines miles for getting their new £70 credit card (ends 22nd August) and the generous Avios deal with Alan Boswell Insurance – details here – which ends on 15th August and is worth up to 10,000 Avios per policy.

There is also the BA Club Europe holidays flash sale, which ends on Monday.  My article from yesterday is here.

  • The Original Nick. says:

    Has anyone had any 2000 Avios post to their BAEC accounts from the Hilton Promo?

  • The Original Nick says:

    Ummm, my qualifying stays were mid June and still haven’t transferred over to my BAEC account.

    • Paulm says:

      I got one from the beginning of June added this week after I chased Hilton on it, so I would get into them.

  • David says:

    Did we ever find out whether you can get further 2k avios bonuses if you start to credit to Iberia?

    I’ve got the 10k to BAEC and a few stays coming up…

    • Marc says:

      Yes, I’m crediting to IbPlus and getting the 2.000 Avios per stay!

      • Rob says:

        Was their a registration page or did you just switch preference?

        • marcw says:

          Rob, the link is supposed to be , but surprosingly it doesn´t work. If you ask via Twitter of Fb (or calling) they are able to register you into the offer. It works. Two stays credited already.

    • Alex W says:

      I’ve just emailed Honors about this twice and they are adamant the 2000 Avios is only for BA and not Iberia. I even sent them the link to the Iberia website but no joy.

      • Alex W says:

        As mentioned, I already sent them the link to the Iberia site. Gees, it’s like trying to deal with Hilton again!

        • Rob says:

          Someone emailed me yesterday who had got Hilton to add the promo manually and had been getting the points. Probably the only person in the world!

  • Von Schmallhausen says:

    I hate Hilton points – 2 stays points posted to BAEC in c.5 days, another 2 still waiting 6 weeks later. Almost as bad as Shell who I have to email to get ANY points posted…

  • Kai says:

    OT – if I buy a Selfridges gift card online, will it trigger the spend £100 get £30 back amex offer?

    • Rob says:

      Instore, yes. Online – should be OK as long as it is processed directly. Some shops sell their vouchers via third parties.

  • Denis says:


    Accor claims I am not entitled to their 2000 bonus points as part of the deal when I stayed at Novotel Suites Cannes Centre a month ago. My further 2 emails left unanswered.

    The booking info in my email says (and I have a proof of it) :
    “….Special terms 3:
    Bonus: on top of earning Le Club AccorHotels points, you will receive 2000 bonus points within a week after your stay, representing a EUR 40 reduction to use on your future stay. ~ ”

    Did anyone have the same experience 1) not having bonus points credited, 2) lack of customer service?

    Thank you in advance.

    “Tuesday 15th August
    Last day to earn double Avios – up to £10,000 – with your household, business or landlord insurance”

    typo with the pound sign 🙁

    btw, i got a quote for contents only insurance from them – not even the Avios would have made it competitive.
