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.

    re Laithwaites:
    Look around for other statement credit opportunities. Last purchase I got 20% from Lloyds plus Nectar Connect, Perks at Work, Airtime totalling 50%. A lucky coincidence but worth looking.
