The new HFP chat thread – Saturday 20th 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/2020/06/20/the-new-hfp-chat-thread-saturday-20th-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!

    Having my customary post-churn frustration with Amex Membership Rewards. Please can someone remind me how many zeroes I need to arbitrarily add before/after my Radisson Rewards (or as they still call it, Club Carlson) number?

    • Genghis says:

      I can never get mine to connect. I’ve called them up the last couple of times and they sorted it out for me.

      • Crafty says:

        Laughable they have never bothered to sort this. Not like the card is £575 a year or anything.

    I wanted to know, do you get MR points if you were referred by someone? I was referred a gold card by someone and they got 9K however does the person been referred get anything? I appreciate the help thanks.

    • Charlieface says:

      For the gold card it’s an extra 2k for the person being referred

      • Baji Nahid says:

        Do you know charlieface, do they get the 2K straight away? or do they get it after they hit a certain spend?
