Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The new HFP chat thread – Saturday 13th June

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We have decided to run this new daily chat thread on Head for Points.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the defacto repository for random comments and questions.  It is unlikely that the news flow will be so big over the next few weeks that we will need many ‘Bits’ articles, however.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are stuck at home self-isolating, we want the HFP community to have a place to chat.

Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as its keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HFP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here: https://www.headforpoints.com/2020/06/13/the-new-hfp-chat-thread-saturday-13th-june/comment-page-1.  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

We will continue to monitor how this is working.  Let’s see how it goes.  Take care!

    Morning all I currently collect only Avios but am also considering whether to also collect hotel points so am looking at the best way to do this. I’m reasonably new to this game so missed all the best hotel credit cards (I have to get over the bitterness!) I’m thinking that my best strategy would be firstly to get the IHG Mastercard and then once my 2 year hiatus is over also reapply for the Gold Amex ? If my husband also gets the IHG card, can we combine the points? Is my strategy right or have I missed something?
    I don’t travel for work (I’m one of those public sector types….!) and neither does hubby . I also don’t (yet!) have any loyalty to a particular hotel brand. Thanks all 😁
