Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Sunday 28th November

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.

      I wonder if this is more to do with what proportion of their population is vaccinated.

    Any idea if there will be any points transfer bonus coming soon? Last year there was one with Hilton in November…

  • GaryE says:

    Apologies for asking this question, but am I correct that I can cancel an Avios flight upto 24 hours prior to outbound departure and get points refunded and only lose the cash element which is upto £35 pp?

    are there any ways to acquire john lewis vouchers at a discount?

  • David says:

    Two questions:
    1. Does anyone know when BA will be notifying customers for SA if their flights are cancelled? I’m scheduled to fly out on 9/12 and fly back 28/12. I’m not going anyways but would prefer a refund to a voucher.
    2. Any ideas when the BA site/app will start crediting previously flown flights from the last few weeks? I got back from NYC a week or so ago and no credit as yet. When I try to report online the form doesn’t work.
