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.

    IIRC 28 February is the last day for various Sainsbury’s Bank Nectar bonuses such as pet or life insurance. However, these offers are frequently relaunched with very similar terms. At present pet insurance has a boosted bonus, perhaps March will see the increases on energy and credit cards from 8,000 to 10,000.

    Speaking of links, do you have an affiliate link for the Economist offer?
