Double Heathrow Rewards points on Apple computing

Heathrow Rewards is offering double points until 30th September when you buy any iMac or Macbook at Dixons Travel.

You can reserve an item in advance – and check prices – via this page of the Heathrow website.  This allows you to make an informed choice in advance of your trip on whether the tax free price is genuinely good value or not.

Heathrow Rewards points convert into Avios, Virgin Flying Club, Emirates Skywards, Etihad Guest and Lufthansa Miles & More at 1:1 – or more if you hold off for a conversion bonus.

  1. Why is it that the Network Railcard is never part of these promos?? Really annoying as none of the others apply to me

    • Because they don’t need to encourage you to travel by train. They would get rid of it if they could

  2. Frank De Jongh Swemer says:

    Also, at Charles Tyrwhitt the code TUBE discounts all shirts online or in store to £22.95, Handy if you just want to get one shirt. This add has appeared on London Underground in the last week.

  3. Stephen C says:

    Slightly OT, has anyone used their £5 Heathrow Rewards vouchers yet from the conversion promo in May? Just wondering how long they take to put them through, particularly in Dixons

  4. Nigel Huggins says:

    Dont forget that just £15 of Tesco shopping vouchers gets you a 12 month rail card absolutely “free”.

    • Jordan D says:

      Although annoying the Network Railcard isn’t on that offer either.

      • Aeronaut says:

        The Network Railcard never has promotional offers on.

        I can think of only one years ago run by South West Trains, that’s it.

        As a commenter above suggested, we could perhaps just be grateful it exists at all – unlike the ‘national’ Railcards, its existence is not protected by statute.

        • If you find someone with an annual gold card, they can get you a railcard for £10…

        • Aeronaut says:

          True, but they can only do this once per annual Gold Card (unless the ticket clerk doesn’t do what they are supposed to do!).

        • @aeronaut – I’ve never known the ticket clerk to do what they’re supposed to do yet. And for those of us on a split ticket gold card (I.e I have two and save £400 by doing so) the opportunities are doubled!

  5. The CT offer comes on the heals of their price hike! It was 4 shirts for £100 but the last brochure that hit my mat had higher prices.

  6. OT my daughter is travelling on a Hand Luggage only ticket on BA to Stockholm Friday afternoon. I’m trying to remember how the self check in machine trick for picking seats works? Does she check in on her phone but not print or save boarding pass today? Or do nothing today?
    If anyone with status fancies guesting her into the lounge that would also be amazing 🙂 (Her flight is at about 5pm)
    Thanks in advance….

  7. Looking to use avios to book Christchurch to Cairns – no direct flights so need to change in Brisbaine. The BA website is showing availability with Qanta only in business but cannot book it online.

    Anyone know how many miles I would need and the cost?
    Also is the cancellation charges same as when booking BA flights? Thanks

  8. Railcard – The 10% discount is for the one year only card- not for the 3 year Railcard- not surprising i guess.

  9. Optimus Prime says:

    The Avios Iberia Plus deal from Groupon Spain is back:

    2.000 Avios Iberia Plus 19 €
    4.000 Avios Iberia Plus 59 €
    8.000 Avios Iberia Plus 99 €
    15.000 Avios Iberia Plus 189 €
    20.000 Avios Iberia Plus 249 €
    34.000 Avios Iberia Plus 429 €

    I’ve successfully used the 15% discount code VIVEGRPN for new customers.

    And Iberia Plus Store is giving 13 Avios per € 1.

    • Good spot, thanks. This is what I normally treat myself to with my Curve Rewards points. Sadly I don’t have enough for €19 this time!

    • Andrew H says:

      2000 packs close to selling out.

  10. the real harry1 says:

    2000 for £17.24

    take off the 15% £14.68

    £14.68/ 2000 = 0.73p/ point

    sounds ok if I got the math right 🙂

    not much good for higher quantities

    • Peter K says:

      Also every little helps to hit Amex targets, though 3% fee of course.

      • the real harry1 says:

        I think we’d be happy with 0.65p

        remember to go through PayPal for the extra security if something goes wrong

  11. OT I received an email from Virgin America Elevate today offering 10,000 bonus miles for activating a Mileage Plan account as didn’t have one previously. Could be worth checking for any Elevate members if they got the offer as well as free 10k Alaskan miles!
