Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

You can no longer earn Avios points from Pizza Express

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

The direct partnership between Avios and Pizza Express seems to have been a short one.

Pizza Express was originally working with loyalty app Bink to allow you to collect Avios via their platform.  Avios then dropped Bink and allowed members to collect Avios directly at Pizza Express by simply registering their credit card via the Avios estore.

It looks like this partnership has come to an end.  You can still find the dedicated Pizza Express page on avios.com but once you click the link to register the company is no longer there. We could also not find anything on the BA website.

PS.  Debenhams appears to have disappeared as well …..

    OT – there’s an offer in BA’s Club (online) magazine this month for the Intercontinental in HK. 4 nights for 3 and a guaranteed upgrade to Harbour views with Club access for 2. Valid from 1st March to 29th December (with some blackout dates). Haven’t looked at full T&C’s but might help some people out here… http://theclub.ba.com/february-2018/en/exclusive-club-offers/

    • Rob says:

      That is a decent deal with the harbour view and Club, to be honest, despite the construction on both sides.

  • Cate says:

    oOOH! Thank you Anna.

  • JamesB says:
