Cheap MeliaRewards hotel points are back on Amazon

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

A couple of weeks ago we wrote about the opportunity to net some cheap MeliaRewards points by buying them from Amazon.

Whilst these sold quickly, Amazon is taking orders again for delivery from 15th December. You can buy 55,000 points for the exceptionally low price of £161. Click here.

If you have a Curve card, you are probably targetted for a special offer of £10 cashback when you spend £100 at Amazon. Open the Curve app and the offer should pop up, before disappearing never to be seen again! You need to spend the £100 by 31st December.

Alternatively, if you have Amex Gold, remember that you can register for an offer to earn 3 Membership Rewards points per £1 on your Amazon spending.

If you need the points urgently, you can buy for roughly the same price via amazon.de – click here. You will have them by the weekend. The German site accepts your standard UK log-in details but it will NOT trigger the Curve or Amex bonuses above.
