Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New British Airways Wine Explorer deal – get 14 bottles and 1,000 Avios points for £55

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

The British Airways Wine Explorer club, run by Laithwaite’s, has launched a new deal. And it is a pretty good package.

If you are a new customer, you will receive:

A 12-bottle wine case, chosen from three options (mixed, reds or whites)

2 free bottles of Marlborough Sauvignon and two Dartington Crystal wine tumblers worth £41

1,000 Avios (250 Avios if you are an existing Laithwaite’s customer)

Free delivery

….. for a total cost of £55.

Full details and the order form are here.

There is one snag you need to deal with.

By ordering, you are signing yourself up to Laithwaite’s Wine Plan. Every 8-12 weeks they will automatically send you another 12-bottle wine case. It is very easy to stop this happening – simply give Laithwaite’s a call to cancel your Wine Plan membership, there is no penalty – but you must trust yourself to remember.

The offer runs until 30th September 2018.

It is also worth taking a look at the main BA Wine Explorer website here which has a range of other offers, albeit none with a 1,000 Avios bonus.

    How do I get the offer? I called up and nobody is aware of it. Is there a code that I need to quote?

    • Rob says:

      The 1000 Avios offer? It should show automatically when you click the article link. If it doesn’t work on mobile try desktop which is definitely OK.
