Shop online via Avios eStore between 5 and 8 October (i.e. this weekend), and get you’ll get double Avios on (pretty much) all your purchases.
We’ve long flagged Avios eStore as a good way to get a Hilton rebate, and with it offering 12 Avios per £1 during the double points weekend, now is a good time to book.
Otherwise, there are some healthy additional options, not least in the run up to Christmas (yes, we’ve mentioned it):
All Avios will be added to your account within 35 days of the date of your purchase with the exception of hotel or travel bookings, which can take between 90 and 120 days after you’ve completed your stay.
The downside to this offer is the fairly hefty list of excluded retailers, which are available here.
What is the Avios eStore ?
Rather like the cashback sites, Avios eStore gives you a rebate for shopping with everyday online retailers if you click through to them from their portal.
As such, if these are retailers you would ordinarily visit, it is a great way of earning Avios on transactions you would have made anyway.
If the cashback is better (and we’d use 1 pence per Avios as your benchmark), that’s obviously the place to go.
