Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Important dates for your diary – offers about to close which you shouldn’t miss

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

In the hope, if not the expectation, that we will see a return to some international travel soon, we have revived this ‘last chance’ feature.  It ran every two weeks for a number of years until we suspended it last March.

The aim of this feature is to summarise offers that are ending soon.  Years of experience of running offers for HfP readers has made it very clear that a large proportion like to leave things to the last minute ….

It pulls together the different deals mentioned in our daily articles and on our Top Avios Points Earning Offers, Top Hotel Bonus Points Offers and Top UK Credit Card Offers pages.

    Accor ALL also has a 4x points offer for new hotels which includes some hotels in Europe, so there might be an opportunity to double up.

    Book before 31/08/2021
    Stay at one the hotels before 07/10/2021

      I’d like this offer more if they actually listed the participating hotels in an easy to find and easy to read format.

  • KayGee says:

    Any reason why the Lufthsansa companion sale (expiry 20th Jul) is missing from the list? I know they have the sale more often than in the past but still decent value right – except that they are not free to amend?

    • Rob says:

      Simply never got around to covering it. The last one we covered got very little interest from readers so we decided to give this one a miss. The enthusiasm for booking indirect flights is very low.

      • KayGee says:

        Underestood, thanks Rob. This one does cover flights starting from the UK – Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Manchester, Newcastle as per their website
