I assume, by now, that almost all Head for Points readers in the UK will have linked their Nectar account to Avios and made a transfer.
Others prefer to move Nectar points, which they see as having little value, into Avios where they can get more for them.
If you are in the third camp – having never linked your Avios and Nectar accounts at all – Avios is running a small incentive this month.
If you transfer 2,000 Nectar points into 1,250 Avios by 27th September, you will receive 250 bonus Avios.
You cannot take part if you have previously transferred Avios and Nectar points in either direction.
You cannot reverse the transfer before 31st October.
The 250 bonus Avios will arrive within 10 weeks from 27th September.
Details of the transfer bonus are on this page of the Nectar site.

You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points. These points convert at 1:1 into Avios.

We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
