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.

    The £50 off £200 spend at Amex Travel is also on my Rewards credit card

  • Bill Barton says:

    I assume you can still qualify for the 2X/3X IHG points with consecutive stays at different IHG hotels?

  • Miss London says:

    Surprised this list doesn’t mention Saturday 30th October as the last day to book using a Lloyds Avios upgrade voucher.
