Today we are launching a fantastic new competition. One lucky reader will win 100,000 Avios courtesy of Avios partner Cruise118.
We haven’t done a huge amount about cruising on Head for Points before, but we know that it’s a popular holiday choice for many readers. If it’s something you or a family member are considering, it can be a lucrative way of earning additional Avios.
How earn Avios with Cruise118
Cruise118 offers you 3 Avios for every £1 spent which is an attractive earn rate. For example, a 10 day cruise around Italy and the Med on the luxury cruise operator Regent Seven Seas could earn you over 18,000 Avios PER PERSON.
Not only that, Cruise118 is currently offering up to 10% off and up to £300 onboard spending money in their Big Cruise Sale so it’s a good time to get booking. You can visit their website here to find out more.
How can I win 100,000 Avios?
The competition is very straightforward to enter. Simply fill out the Gleam app at the bottom of this post (or by clicking through to the Gleam website) and leave your name and email address. That’s it.
We are also offering you the opportunity to double your chances and receive a second entry to the competition by signing up to Cruise118’s email newsletter. This is optional but is worthwhile as you will be first to hear about their special offers and sales.

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.
Run your own business?
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.
SPECIAL OFFER: Capital On Tap has increased its sign-up bonus to points worth 30,000 Avios if you apply by 4th February. This is exclusive to Head for Points readers. Click here to apply.
