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.

    Link to high bonus buy not working

  • The other Kevin says:

    I thought the party was on 27th June?

  • The other Kevin says:

    Ah, maybe that’s the ticket sale date!

    • Rob says:

      Not actually decided yet, but probably around Tue 6 / Wed 7 as office is empty this week due to half term.

      Won’t leave it too late as we know some people will book trains and hotels around it.

  • Mike Stewart says:

    Tuesday 6th June
    FIRST DAY for stays to count towards the IHG One Rewards summer promotion.

    T&Cs on this promotion say that the Promotion Period starts 24th May and qualifying stays must be within the Promotion Period.
    Quote from T&Cs:
    To be a “Qualifying Room Night” under the Promotion, the room night must fall within the Promotion Period and must be part of a Promotion Eligible Qualifying Stay. As stated, the “Promotion Period” is from 24 May 2023 through 31 August 2023.

    • Rob says:

      To quote from rules: ‘The “Promotion Period” is from 6 June 2023 through 31 August 2023.’

  • TheEscapist says:

    Apologies if this is a rookie question (rarely collect points other than avios…) Will the IHG points bonus stack with the Amex “Save to Card to get a £75 statement credit when you make one or more transactions up to £300+ at IHG Hotels & Resorts by 9/6/2023.” offer? TIA

    • Rob says:

      Yes, any IHG promos running for stays trigger irrespective of any Amex offer.

      • Alex says:

        Thanks Rob, but apologies, I should have been clearer – this was in reference to the “Get an 80% bonus when you buy IHG One Rewards points by 7th June” rather than the stay promo. Would that stack? Thanks!

  • Rob says:

    True, but we’ll do article on that nearer the time anyway.
