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.

    Already had the Barclays premium card. Signed up for the paperless premium account and switched on the avoid option. But I’m not seeing anything in the correspondence that conforms I’ll get the 100k. Was there supposed to be any confirmation. It something I can do to check I’ll get it?

    • Damien says:

      There was a typo “Switched to the avios option”

      • Gordon says:

        @Damien, I received an email which did not state anything about the 100k avios once my application was sorted, But the chap in the bank said it’s all sorted, So I would not be concerned about it. If you wanted peace of mind just call them and they will be happy to confirm this.

    Re The 100k avois promotion, After reading some people having issues I thought I would pop into my local Barclays Bank yesterday and speak to a human to get this sorted. (I am old school) Good job I did as my avios Barclaycard and my existing Barclays business and current accounts were under different profiles which I was not aware of.

    No eligibility checks were needed for the premier account £75k pa requirement as the system was happy with the accounts previous years cash flows.
    The young man quickly addressed everything and it was all sorted within 30 mins. Looking forward to the 100k avois in March 23.

    • yorkieflyer says:

      Yes we did the same, queuing for the branch to open at 0930. All sorted with very efficient helpful advisor. Same issue with a second profile being created by the app application for an existing Avios plus card holder. If this is you, head to branch
