I’ve recently written about the genuine improvements to Heathrow Rewards, the loyalty scheme of Heathrow Airport. Heathrow Rewards has now brought back a good promotion: you will earn 3,000 bonus for signing up via the promotion page and spending 150 GBP in one day by 31 December 2018. 

Here’s a snapshot of the promotion details:

Although this is nominally an Avios promotion, you will receive the bonus as Heathrow Rewards Points. This means that you are free to transfer them to any of the partner airline schemes:

  • Avios
  • British Airways Executive Club
  • Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
  • Singapore Airlines Krisflyer
  • Lufthansa Miles & More
  • Emirates Skywards
  • Aer Lingus Aerclub
  • Royal Brunei Airlines Royal Skies.

You can find out more about redeeming Heathrow Rewards points in our post here and on the Heathrow Rewards webpage.

Things to consider

  • Only new account registrations qualify. Sign up via the promotion page using promo code AVIOSAO18.
  • If you already have an account, why not open one for your in-laws or someone in your extended family? Because you can only register one account per address, I would NOT recommend registering your partner or kids… Once the bonus has been triggered, either contact Heathrow Rewards to move the points across to your account; or transfer them to an airline partner allowing household accounts (e.g. Avios); or use them for parking or shopping at Heathrow.
  • There are reports on the net of people opening accounts in random names and then simply asking Heathrow Rewards to transfer the triggered bonus into their actual account. I would personally refrain from doing so as this could lead to your account being suspended.

Full T&Cs:

  • The extra points offer is available to new members  only who join using this link or register their card and enter promotional code AVIOSAO18 before 31 December 2018.

  • 3,000 points will be awarded when £150 or more of qualifying expenditure is made in a single day before 31 December 2018 and the Heathrow Rewards card is presented.

  • Only one offer per member.

  • Offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other joining offer.

  • Offer not applicable to currency exchange purchases.

  • Terms and Conditions apply.




  1. Geoffrey Baxter says

    Beware! I complied fully with the T&C’s. The 3000 Heathrow Reward points were credited to my account and I attempted to convert the points to BA avios.
    The conversion was rejected by BA and no explanation given from Heathrow Rewards (whom I have contacted at least 6 times) or BA (contacted 3 times). HR are telling me that I have to sort it out with BA and BA saying that it is nothing to do with them and that I have to sort it out with Heathrow Rewards. In the meantime I have lost 3250 points.
