Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

LAST DAY: Win 25,000 Avios by completing our HfP reader survey

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Time is running out. We are giving you the chance to win 25,000 Avios by completing our first HfP reader survey – but you must complete the form by midnight tonight, Sunday.

As you’d expect from us, we have kept it short and multi-choice. We won’t take up much of your time.

Even though the site is now approaching its 10th anniversary, we have never done a comprehensive reader survey. We get a lot of data from Google Analytics, Facebook, Twitter etc about our readers, and of course from meeting you at our reader parties, but this is always ‘best guess’ information.

By getting a clearer picture of our readers, it will help us shape future articles and – let’s be honest – will help us attract new advertisers. This will hopefully translate into new competitions and reader offers.

How to complete the HfP reader survey

Click here to start the survey.

The survey only consists of 13 questions, 12 of which are multi choice. We estimate it will take no more than three minutes to complete.

All questions are optional. Missing out a question does not impact your chance of winning the 25,000 Avios.

You can complete the survey on a mobile or desktop device.

The survey is only open to UK residents.

How to win 25,000 Avios

If you choose to give your email address on the final page, you will be entered into a draw to win one prize of 25,000 Avios.

The winner will be selected at random after the survey closes at midnight tonight, Sunday 20th February. The winner will need a UK-based British Airways Executive Club account to receive their prize. The email address on the account must match the email address used to complete the survey.

The small print: This survey is NOT connected to British Airways or IAG Loyalty in any way. We are simply using Avios as a prize because we know it is attractive to our readership.

As well as being entered into the competition, everyone who provides their email address will be emailed the results of the survey. Your email address will be deleted after this one email has been sent.

Conclusion

The link to complete the HfP reader survey is here.

The form will close at midnight tonight, Sunday 20th February.

The winner of the 25,000 Avios will be announced a few days later. Good luck, and thank you.

    Thanks, I’m sure someone already pointed it out but it’s “Turkish Airlines”, not “Airways” 🇹🇷🛫

  • Charlie says:

    Good survey, I started it earlier today but didn’t find time to complete (I had as long day!) But returned to it just now and it remembered me. Initially surprised not to see Hilton Barclaycard as a choice but I guess it has not been open to new applicants for a while.
