What is interesting about the deal is that it covers their stores as well as online, so you can earn Avios however you choose to shop.

Avios earning at Charles Tyrwhitt

It is a long time since I bought any shirts from Tyrwhitt – my disproportionately large neck compared to my slim waist means I always struggle with fit and I ended up getting some shirts made.

They do offer a large combination of sleeve length and neck combinations, however, so as long as the neck vs waist fit works – and there are the options of classic, slim and extra slim – then you won’t have any trouble getting sleeves that look good.

How many Avios do I earn at Charles Tyrwhitt?

The standard earning rate is 4 Avios per £1 spent.

How do I earn Avios?

ONLINE:

The Charles Tyrwhitt website is here.  You shop as normal and add your Avios or BAEC number under the ‘About You’ section at check-out.

IN-STORE:

Show your BAEC or avios.com card number at the till.  You don’t need the physical plastic card.

MAIL ORDER:

Tywhitt catalogues will include a box on the order form for you to add your number.

TELEPHONE:

If you ring up to order, the operator can take your card number.

In all case, points will not be credited until 28 days from purchase to allow for refunds.

You continue to earn Avios even if you are buying in a Charles Tyrwhitt sale or taking advantage of a discount code.  We cover Charles Tyrwhitt promotions on Head for Points when they come along.
