Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Friday 15th October

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.

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.

    Does anyone know if I can buy gift cards at the ivy and if they count towards the £200 Amex dinner offer?

    • Dave says:

      We’ve had this one before and the consensus is no they won’t count as processed by a different organisation. Happy to be corrected though

      • Bill says:

        I’m sure the menu that I read when sat in the restaurant said you could ask the waiter and purchase the gift cards. Presumably they the. Go through the normal till. The waiter was too vague when I asked so didn’t get to the bottom of it

  • Dani says:

    The conveyancor is likely to have an issue with this… And the card charges…this will need to discussed openly. I’m sure it’s possible but like I say a friendly upfront chat may work.

  • Elguiri says:

    Amex Plat – any special process needed to get bonus points on adding supp card? Or can just add one via app as soon as main card activated?

  • Shaw West says:

    I am travelling to Alicante. Is there a uber/bolt/grab equivalent for airport to city? Is the taxi rank only option?
