Qatar Airways has launched a week-long sale.
We haven’t seen any pricing at the time of writing, but we’ll give it some extra coverage later in the week.
If you book TODAY, however, you will get an extra 10% off all flights booked via the Qatar Airways website or their mobile app. You’ll need to use this link to the website and the discount code 24HOURS.
The 10% discount is off the base fare, excluding the taxes and fees. For economy tickets, that means the 10% discount will end up being quite a bit smaller, but some decent savings will be made on Business Class tickets.
Qatar Airways has given Head for Points readers early access to this offer ahead of their own email blast at 10am.
Here are the key terms and conditions for the extra 10% discount:
- Promo code is only valid on 7th January and will expire at midnight
- You must use the code 24HOURS to get the discount
- It is only valid to flights booked via the UK website
- This promo code applies to Qatar Airways operated flights only
- Travel period: 8 January to 30 November 2020
As this offer is only valid for flights booked on the UK website and so priced in Sterling, the best credit card to pay with is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold. This gives you double Membership Rewards points (2 per £1) on all airline spending when you book directly with a the airline.
There are a lot of other special offers linked to the sale, including:
- Double Qmiles if you choose to credit to Qatar Privilege Club instead of British Airways Executive Club
- Very low-cost Doha stopovers for up to four nights
- Upgrades at the Oryx Airport Hotel
- 25% off lounge access in Doha if it is not included in your ticket
- 20% off excess baggage
Full details are on the sale website here.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (January 2023)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
SPECIAL OFFER: Until 21st February 2023, the sign-up bonus on the British Airways Premium Plus American Express card is increased to 35,000 Avios from 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.

We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
