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.

The aim of this feature is to summarise flight, hotel and points offers that are ending soon.  Everything listed below has been covered on HfP in recent weeks, but 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.

    When is Marriott going to run a promo? I’m tired of waiting!

      Feel my pain – I just paid a substantial bill at St Regis Mardavall this morning and won’t get a point more than I am contractually due 🙂

      (One upside – they saw my Bonvoy credit card, thought it was the US one which comes with $100 of St Regis credit on every 2+ night stay and said they would deduct $100 from my bill, which they did. Made it worth sucking up the 3% FX fee as I get 6 Bonvoy points per £1 for the spend.)
