Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win 5,000 Heathrow Rewards points with ‘Green Points’ – virtually no entries so far!

Heathrow Rewards has launched a new promotion to encourage you to reuse your clear plastic liquids bag.

There is a slight snag.  You can only take part if you are reusing an official Heathrow clear plastic liquids bag, which comes with a QR code printed on the front.  This means you need to get rid of your current bag, which is not the environmental message they want to send out!

At Terminal 5 – and ONLY at Terminal 5 – you should scan the QR code on your offical Heathrow liquids bag using your smartphone each time you use it.

Heathrow is donating 1p to Care International for every scanned bag.  If your bag is scanned three times before 31st March, you will be entered into a competition to win 5,000 Heathrow Rewards points.  These can be converted into 5,000 Avios or other airline miles, or a £50 Heathrow shopping voucher.

As you can see here:

….. the initiative has not taken off so far!  It is very possible that NO-ONE has yet scanned their bag three times.  If you are flying from Terminal 5 on three occasions by 31st March you should be in with a good chance of winning. 

You’ll also be helping to boost the donation to Care International beyond the current total of 22p.

You can find full details of the Green Points initiative here (log-in required).

If you’re not a member of the scheme yet, you can find out how Heathrow Rewards works in this article.

    I took advantage of the Iberia promotion for buying Avios. But it turns out that my Iberia account is dormant which prevents me from transferring the Avios to BA. Anyone know the cheapest/easiest way to wake up the account?

      Buying the Avios should be enought to stop it being dormant. Easiest option is transferring 1,000 Amex points over.
