The UK Avios programme has a generous special offer for joining Heathrow Rewards which we have plugged a few times recently.
Heathrow Rewards gives you 1 point for every £1 spent in Heathrow (1 per £10 on foreign exchange) or on Heathrow Express tickets (online bookings only). Once you’ve earned 250 points you can exchange them for miles or shopping vouchers.
As you can see on this page, you will receive 3,000 bonus Heathrow Rewards points when you sign up using code AVIOSAO18 and spend £150 in one transaction before the end of the year.
Some people may find £150 too much. In that case, it turns out that Aer Lingus AerClub has an offer of its own.
As you can see on the Irish Avios site here, you will receive 1,500 bonus Heathrow Rewards points when you sign up using code AERCAO18 and spend £75 in one transaction.
It is only half as many bonus points – but you only need to spend half the money.
You are not obliged to send your bonus points to Avios despite using the Avios code – you can use them for any Heathrow Rewards redemption option.
