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 support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

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.

    worth noting amex small shop should be starting in Dec 2021

      We haven’t been told anything!

      • Chas says:

        I got an email from Amex yesterday encouraging me to “shop small and earn rewards”. It contained a link to the map (which has been updated as it normally lists my local chippy who have never taken Amex, and it doesn’t this time), but no information about dates, value of credit or spend, or any other restrictions. An email of zero usefulness.
