Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The new HFP chat thread – Tuesday 11th August

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 de facto 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/2020/08/11/the-new-hfp-chat-thread-tuesday-11th-august/comment-page-1.  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HFP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

    I just binned my Elite sub to RFF. Twice in the last two weeks I had to make swift destination changes due to FCO Advisories changing and I needed a new holiday fast. I spent over an hour each time When checking where else my miles could go. The RFF feed was patently wrong on each search I made.Ok there is a problem with the feed. But RFF didn’t tell me that. If it was free so be it. However call it Elite and start taking £3 from me each month you have to up the game- at least putting a tag on the site when there’s an issue. I value my time too.
    Therefore regretfully I’m out.

      I think I’ll be doing that as well. I’ve mentioned a few times that I’ve been contacting RFF and each time getting a response that they’re “looking into it” but no offer to that month’s subscription!
