Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Wednesday 9th June

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.

    Spending over £50k on Hilton Barclaycard
    Anyone know how long it takes Barclaycard to review monthly spend over £50k and transfer points to HH? (I mistakenly went over the £50k audit threshold)

    For those of you with Flying Blue accounts, the Double XP offer is back from the 1st July to the 31st December 2021. Only on AF or KL marketed flights.

  • Anna says:

    Speaking of Ryanair (earlier), they seem to be charging more if you rebook than for a new flight – very naughty.

      Wouldn’t expect anything less. It’s about time the authorities got tough with Ryanair…but unfortunately I fear they won”t.

    On the back of the disgraceful actions of O’Leary, I feel I should give credit to easyjet. They cancelled our return flight from Madeira on Saturday afternoon making it impossible for us to fly out tomorrow morning. We requested the refund on Saturday afternoon at 3pm and the funds were credited back to my Amex card on Monday morning. Thank you easyjet! 👍

      Ryanair on the other hand have maintained service throughout the pandemic on key routes and have not cancelled at short notice unlike Easyjet and Jet2. A January FR flight I was on had 17 pax, all credit it to them for keeping links for essential travel
