Avios and American Express have come together to launch a new partnership with the upmarket men’s clothing retailer Hackett.

When I was first told about this, six months ago, it was meant to be a similar partnership to the Charles Tyrwhitt one.  I’m not sure what has changed, but the deal is now restricted to British Airways American Express cardholders as opposed to anyone with an Avios account.

This is how it works.

Hackett Avios deal

On the ‘Offers’ tab of your British Airways American Express card online statement page, you will find the Hackett offer.  Click ‘Save to Card’.

Once you’ve done that, you will earn 25 Avios per £1 spent on your BA Amex at Hackett until 28th April.

Note that some readers are reporting getting a lower 15 Avios per £1 spent.  It looks like there is a bit of market testing going on.

The offers work in stand-alone Hackett stores – but not department store concessions or outlet stores – and you can also buy on the Hackett website here.


How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (March 2023)

    Anyone having problems paying IHG card with Revolut? It has been working fine previously but the last couple of days I’m getting payment not successfull errors.

    • Alan says:

      Have you given it a break for a few days? Pretty low limits allowed.

  • Alex says:

    I know WT redemptions are poor, but never knew they were *this* bad. I’ve just found a return to NYC at Christmas for 40,000 avios + £374. The same flight on the BA website (with luggage) is £407. Considering you can get £40 off for 5,200 avios, this is quite a terrible deal…

    V similar on Virgin

    • marcw says:

      Fuel surcharges are a rip off. Use a few Avios to reduce the price. You will earn a few more Avios and TP.

    • Doug M says:

      How much is the flexible WT ticket which would be the proper comparison?

      • TGLoyalty says:

        Exactly. That’s one reason you would use Avios vs cash or at last min when cash is sky high.

  • David says:

    “If you used to stay in a W hotel but can’t stand the pace any longer, EDITION is for you.”

    I don’t understand this sentence. Is everyone in a W hotel always in a rush to get somewhere? Are Editions famously relaxed?

    • TGLoyalty says:

      they’re a bit louder and more in your face.

      FYI one of the best W around is in Doha

    Attention all Tesco Rocket SIM users. For those who have purchased, there is confusion re cancellation, if you do not, you will be charged for another month. From Tesco :

    ‘ You can cancel your Rocket Pack by texting STOPROCKET to 28948 free or by calling 282 free from your Tesco Mobile phone. Make sure you cancel it 48 hours before you renewal date, otherwise the cost of the Rocket Pack may be automatically taken from your credit.’

    We have been warned.

    • Grant says:

      ‘9. Your Rocket Pack will automatically renew each month (‘Renewal Date’) until: (i) you opt-out of the Rocket Pack (this must be done before your Renewal Date); or (ii) you do not have enough credit on your account to buy the Rocket pack.’

      The last line of your quote and 9(ii) above says to me we don’t need to do anything. If there is no credit in your account the Rocket Pack cannot auto-renew.

      • Shoestring says:

        yep it’s not a particularly onerous contract – they won’t come chasing you for the money if you neglect to cancel

    • BJ says:

      Just caught your reply on previous page, thanks.
