Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Saturday 6th November

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 HSBC is processing requests to upgrade Advance accounts to Premier?

    Also, I have a credit card with HSBC. Do I need to cancel that before I upgrade to Premier banking in order to ensure that I get the sign up offer on the World Elite Card?

    Have those with an outstanding Bonvoy free night certificate (up to 25,000 points, earned from the credit card) had it extended until June as it was suggested recently?

    Mine still reads expiring 3rd January. I’ve spotted a good option in February that I’d like to book. Wonder if mine has been missed…
