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.

    With amex IHG cashback- I booked a stay in March for October where I pay the first night rate at booking time but my card hasn’t been debited yet to trigger the cashback! Is this normal? And can I nudge them to do it? Thanks in advance.

    • Rob says:

      You can call the hotel to ask. In my experience, status members are often not charged until a couple of days before as a ‘favour’.

        Anyone had success trying to do this? I’m £18 short after a couple of stays, and not planning on overnighting anywhere this week.
        Alternatively, we have a HI on the list nearby, would a dinner there count toward the amount? I know at a recent HIX stay the entry on amex statement was the same as for the night.

        • John says:

          Well you can only try. HIXs don’t have separate restaurants though, if the HI restaurant is separate then there is a chance it has its own merchant account

  • Adam says:

    Radisson 3000 points per stay.
