There is good news for Avios, Virgin Flying Club, Emirates Skywards, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Aegean Miles+Bonus, Royal Brunei Royal Skies and Lufthansa Miles & More members!

Heathrow Rewards has launched its annual bonus promotion on electronics, watches and jewellery, keen to tap into the Christmas rush.

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.

This is an excellent opportunity to pick up a large pile of miles.  Dixons Travel is included so this is a good chance to cash in on a new iPhone purchase.

Remember that you can convert Heathrow Rewards points into Avios, Virgin Flying Club, Emirates Skywards, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer, Aegean Miles+Bonus, Royal Brunei Royal Skies and Lufthansa Miles & More miles as well as into Heathrow shopping, parking or rail vouchers.

If you are not already a member, you can earn an additional 3,000 Heathrow Rewards points (=3,000 miles, more with a transfer bonus) when you spend £150 in one day via this promo.

Heathrow Rewards

Here are the deals for 2019.  It is less generous at the top end than it was in 2018, when you could earn up to 15,000 points, and the minimum spend to get any bonus has increased from £150 to £250:

10,000 extra points when you spend £4001 or more at APM Monaco, Bulgari, Cartier, Dixon’s, Harrods Fine Watch Room, Rolex, Swarovski, Tiffany’s, Watches of Switzerland & World Duty Free

4,000 extra points when you spend £2501 – £4000 at APM Monaco, Bulgari, Cartier, Dixon’s, Harrods Fine Watch Room, Rolex, Swarovski, Tiffany’s, Watches of Switzerland & World Duty Free

2,500 extra points when you spend £501 – £2500 at APM Monaco, Dixons Travel, Swarovski, Tiffany’s, World Duty Free

500 extra points when you spend £250 – £500 at APM Monaco, Dixons Travel, Swarovski, Tiffany’s, World Duty Free

Note that World Duty Free spend will only count if it is on jewellery, watches and technology products – cigarettes, alcohol, perfume and giant Toblerones do not count!

The offer runs until 31st December.  No registration is required.

I took advantage of this deal a few years ago when I bought my wife a watch at Watches of Switzerland. I then sat on the points – over 20,000 in total, including double base points as I was a premium member of Heathrow Rewards – and converted them to Avios when BA joined the programme. They were offering a 100% transfer bonus at the time, and I netted almost 50,000 Avios if I remember! This was a serious rebate on the price paid for the watch, which was already reduced by the equivalent of the VAT.

Full details are available on the Heathrow website here.

  1. Chris Horsfall says:

    The article says it includes World Duty Free. Is it ONLY for watches and electronics and jewellery? Or does cosmetics, perfume etc also count?

  2. OT – what is CDP for Amex Platinum for Hertz car rental in UK?

    • Amex told me 705500

      • That’s the UK one. However 211762 works OK too and is often a better deal, especially when combined with using the Hertz Australia site.

        • Charlieface says:

          705500 is the generic Amex one. The UK Plat code is 633306 but as you say the USA one is normally better. Don’t forget you get an extra 4hrs free

  3. Nice one Rob – thanks as always.

    Although looking at what they have offered in the past years, looks like the bonus points have come down?

    Last year it was 15,000 bonus on £4k+ and 5,000 Bonus points on spend of £2.5k+

    Cheers
