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.

    Fair point. I suppose you could a ‘ways to buy Avios under 1p this month’ column. Let’s see.

  • RussellH says:

    I have a Hilton booking (points) from 5 to 6 Sept. From trying to read through all the small print, it is not clear to me if the stay falls into either of the two Hilton promotions.
    Any thoughts?
    That said, the last time I found myself bridging two promotions like this, I ended up with both sets of bonus points, which worked out quite nicely.

  • LuxeLass says:

    And today is the last day to buy Choice Privileges Rewards points at up to 25% off.

    Hadn’t seen this Dates post (didn’t come through by email this morning) so had already put some more details (and thanks!) in today’s forum thread. The buy points link seems to be working again now.
