Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Saturday 7th November

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

We have decided to run this 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.

    They do but stocks of gift cards are low at present.
    The One4All gift cards seem to be faulty, as they will not take the desired amount on self checkout either.

    Weird Firefox on Windows glitch there. When I posted my reply to Kai the browser jumps and doesn’t post the comment. What you’ve typed remains there, but if you then click submit it’s a comment not a reply. It’s happened to me before, but this time looked carefully rather than just clicking submit again.

    More lockdown articles please. I think Rob is doing a good job in driving traffic when there’s literally no “traffic”.

    Can someone help me out here? I had a WT+ cash booking made and one of the legs I’d UUA. I cancelled the booking with BA for a FTV. When I rebook how will it all be calculated? I will want the same destination to be booked and one leg to be upgraded to Business just like the original booking.

      Your voucher will include all the cash you paid as well as all the avios which you can then use to pay towards your next flight.

      The voucher is not a ‘for the same trip’ voucher.

      • The Original Nick says:

        Thanks ChrisC. So all I need to do is find a flight with award seats available.

    I recently moved back from US and have started unpacking my storage locker. I had to break up and throw away 10 ink cartridges and there’s a now tv box (which will be helpful as our smart tv hasnt arrived yet). The good old club card days!!

      When one of my relatives sadly passed away , we have the pleasure of disseminating the contents of his storage , as well as several moderately valuable collectibles we also came across his substantial porn collection, most of which was vintage 70s and 80’s materiel. We sold most of it to a place on the Holloway road and gave half the proceeds to charity and raised a glass or six in his memory on the rest of it.
