Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The new HfP chat thread – Friday 21st 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 during the coronavirus outbreak.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  With the news flow being lighter, we are running fewer ‘Bits’ articles.

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 at home, 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 it 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:  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.

    Haven’t been collecting many points from Virgin CC since paying Brighton via Curve stopped working. Does drawing 200 pounds a month from the cashpoint via Curve still work? I did also open a savings account that I funded, feel like I’d lost my mojo but wanting to get back on it…

    Hi Rob,
    Not sure if mentioned in reviewing the new site but when you move from comments pages is it possible to jump straight to the comments and not to the top of the thread to stop having to scroll all the way down each time.

    Was just thinking the same thing as I was working my way through the 6 pages of comments!

    I think the web browser version looks a bit slicker than the mobile phone version.
    Both are cleaner but I think there is a danger you are looking your unique headforpoints identity /branding in the process. Could do with bringing your blue landmarks banner back – otherwise it looks a bit ‘corporate’ and missing personality.

      We need ‘corporate’ to get the five figure ad contracts unfortunately.
