Save 10% on BMI Regional flights

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

One thing I picked up on my trip to ITB in Berlin this week was a discount code for BMI Regional.

Discount code captain will get you 10% off your next flight.

It is valid for bookings by, and travel until, 31st December 2018.  Codeshare flights are excluded.  The discount only seems to apply to the base fare.

You still get complimentary drinks, snacks and checked baggage with BMI Regional too.

    OT re: Accor. Got email the other day about earning points via their shopping portal. Not seen this before but brilliant way of topping up Accor balance to get the 40€ off voucher. Is this a new facility?

    • Stuart_f says:

      It would be very interesting if it reset the expiry date on the points too.

      • Rob says:

        Someone said last week that Club Opinions no longer worked in resetting the expiry date. Not sure if there is a wide clampdown. To be fair the rules say you must do a stay even though historically any earning did the trick.

    • RussellH says:

      I was not aware of this either – potentially useful as I need just 14 points to reach 2000.

      A quick browse did not show anything of even vague interest though. Maybe I need to look harder?

      • Lady London says:

        I deleted it. Now I’m interested. If anyone still has the link could they post it please?

        • Lady London says:

          Thank you @SH83

      As an aside – Accor dont issue vouchers anymore.

    OT Marriott Travel Package: I am thinking about transferring my Marriott points to a United Airlines travel package. However on travel package page it refers to RewardsPlus. Do I need to be a RewardsPlus member to transfer or just a UA member? I have not used my UA account for ovef 11 years so I have lost track of all the rules and I’m trying to get to grips with the current ones.

    • Lyn says:

      JamesB, it looks as if they are using RewardsPlus as a marketing name (Marriott Rewards + MileagePlus?) to encourage United elites to stay with Marriott.

      You certainly don’t need to be a RewardsPlus member to transfer Marriott points to United with the 20% discount (relative to other airlines such as AA) as reflected in the tables of how many points translate into how many miles in the different airline programmes.

      I imagine this would be the same for travel packages, but I don’t actually know.

      • JamesB says:

        Thanks Lyn, I tried signing up with RewardsPlus this evening but got an error. I will call VS tomorrow and ask them to do it for me. From a few things I have read today I believe you are correct but will still join if I can.

    OT. Just received my first ever Amex PRGC (never bother with churning up until now, but I thought I should do it while it is still possible!). I tried to add it my existing Amex on-line account (BA) but it would not allow this. I had to set up a new on line account with a new user ID. Is this normal for Amex? (Also tried adding the BA card to the new account, but couldn’t do that either).

    • Rob says:

      Not normal if you have never had the card before. Can often play up if you have. Pain as you cannot use the app fully now.

      • NIck_C says:

        First Charge Card. Only had the BA card before. Its an inconvenience but I can live with it.

        But on a positive note, I’ve received 4000 Avios on my BA account for referring myself! Not sure who posted that tip, but it was a good one! (I’m using the free BA card currently as I have a couple of vouchers banked).

        • Luthar says:

          Does this work with all Amex cards? Can I refer myself for a BA card if I have the Gold card?

      • john says:

        My wife had this with BA card but it’s in her married name rather than maiden name of her previous cards so assumed this was the reason.

    • sunguy says:

      When we changed from corporate AMEX to M/C I got a personal BA (Free) AMEX card.

      The card refused to be added to my online account, despite the fact that the AMEX was now showing as closed….(and had been for > 3 months).

      I was told by Amex that certain types of cards cannot be mixed in the online portal and I needed a new online account…..

      • Cate ⛱️ says:

        I was told the same. I said thank you, put the phone down, called back later and the next CS operator added it ????

  • Karen says:

    OT. Has anyone else had any issues with the bonus points from the Membership Rewards to Hilton posting? I did the transfer on the 31st January and deleted the email and now Amex are saying the offer doesn’t exist.

    • Tracy says:

      Mine posted fine, got last lot of bonus points on 15th Feb for a transfer on 31st Jan.

  • Ade says:

    OT – Marriott Travel packages,
    Just had email from Marriott, that they are offering 10% bonus miles on travel packages, I guess this will stack with the 35% miles bonus that BA are offering, so their usual 120k miles become (120 x 10% x 35% ) 178k

    Seems a very generous offer

    • New Card says:

      Nooooo I’ve just redeemed for 2 of these for the 35% bonus (without the 10% uplift)…
      Interesting that they’ve decided to do a promotion on these – am hoping this signals they’re not going away after the SPG merger

      • Roger says:

        Saw this too.
        Not too sure, if it not for UA (United Mileage Plus only)?

    • JamesB says:

      Did your email say avios? Mine is for United. Hence my earlier question. I heard about it yesterday before receiving email confirmation this afternoon. I thought it was for the RewardsPlus scheme.

      • JamesB says:

        I should add that RewardsPlus seems to attract a 10%bonus anyway so it is ubclear if email just refers to that or if it is an additional 10%.

    • New Card says:

      Ah, that would perhaps explain it. I think UA RewardsPlus always has a 10% bonus offer from Marriott.

  • Tracy says:

    O/T I know this is asked just about every day but is there a current gold to platinum upgrade link? Thanks 🙂

  • Tracy says:

    Sorry another O/T, I am trying to transfer MR points to Starwood, what is the work around for inputting your SPG number? I sort of remember something about adding zeros…….?

    • Roger says:

      IIRC, it is four leading zeros before actual numbers

      • Tracy says:

        Lol, I tried four zeros at the end earlier in the week and the points have been returned to my MR account. Will try zeros at start….

    • JamesB says:

      I recommend you call them Tracy. I called yesterday to both register and transfer. I was told it would take up to two weeks but points hit my SPG account today.

      • Tracy says:

        Will try a few zeros at start of account number, if no luck I will give them a call, thanks

  • Roger says:

    Men took two days to transfer, although it was to an already registered account.

    • JamesB says:

      Yes, I was very surprised as the amex rep said yesterday that SPG were very slow at the moment.
