The HfP chat thread – Friday 9th April

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

We are running 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.

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.

    Has anyone who has been referred to Amex platinum (personal) since the higher referral/sign up bonuses got their card yet? Wondering if the new platinum card holders can also refer others and get the increased referral bonus? Would like to recommend a few people but will hit that 90k annual referral limit too fast…

      Yes. One arrived today. Referral points received yesterday.
      Activated, but no ability to refer from this new Plat as yet.

  • Greg says:

    Any ideas on how to spend £3000 in three months? Low expenses at the moment.

    • Andy says:

      Could be worse Greg! Somehow I’ve got to spend £4k in 3 months on my wife’s amex card and we’re a bit short of ideas. Usually we spend any spare money we have on holidays and those being cancelled are not helping!
