Chat thread – Wednesday 12th January

    This is today’s chat thread. We have moved the daily discussion from the main HfP news feed into the new forum. We hope you get used to it.

    If you have specific questions about Avios, hotels or credit cards, please ask them in the appropriate forum and not here. This thread is a good place to post interesting deals you have spotted or your general thoughts on travel and all things miles and points. Thank you for contributing.

    So instead of Daily chat, why not a General Chat forum.
    New topics can then be added from the right hand button and replies posted underneath.

    Not sure I follow.
    On my desktop browser, I’m seeing all 3 of your posts as standalone.

    Mmm. On Android the replies are all under original topic General chat thread

    I see it the same as Aston100

    Erico1875

    Yes so do I
    I think I worded it badly.
    Basically
    Forums- sub forums- i.e general chat – start new topic/thread- reply under

    Just as the other sub forums- work

    Perhaps there doesn’t really need to be a new thread daily, just a single indefinitely long chat thread. It could mainly contain random posts like Merry Christmas, bragging about a nice redemption or general comments about where you are on holiday.

    A mod would need to move posts asking for advice or actual discussion to the right subforum and notify the original poster. Flyertalk and other forums also have general chat threads but nobody really uses them because everyone posts in the correct place. But HFP chatters are used to posting everything in the same place. This habit needs to go to make the forums more successful

    good morning all, I am £1000 short of hitting my Amex 30,000 bonus in a few days. Does any know if I was to buy something for £1000, transfer the 30,000 Amex to avios, and then return the £1000 goods. Will this cause an issue? cheers.

    Have you checked the AMEX forum?

    Yes, your account will be in deficit of 31,000 MR points once you return the £1000 item. Why not just buy a gift card for somewhere you’d shop anyway in due course to take you over the line.
