There is a new sign-up bonus for Heathrow Rewards – the loyalty scheme for any purchases made at Heathrow Airport.
If you spend £50 or more in single transactions, on two different days before 31st October, you will earn 2,500 points – which is equivalent to 2500 Airline miles.
To use this, you would need to create a new account – if you already have one, and you would need to make sure you have two purchases above the £50 value and make sure you do them on different days.
I believe that Dixons Travel once airside do sell Apple iTunes gift cards, and WH Smith airside and landside may also have suitable options. Assuming you spend £100 (2x£50) on things that you could make use of anyway, you would be getting back 2500 airline miles when the rewards points are converted out. Alternatively, 500 points would get you a £5 voucher to spend at Heathrow.
Depending upon the value you place on your miles, this could be above 25% back in value.

As you can see – this is a co-branded Miles and More offer, but I can NOT see anything in the terms and conditions given saying that you MUST convert these into Miles and More miles.
Each 250 Heathrow Rewards points multiple can convert into:
- 250 Avios (in BA Executive Club, or the Avios.com scheme)
- 250 Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles
- 250 Miles and More miles
- 250 Etihad Guest miles
- 250 Emirates Skywards miles
You would get 2,500 from the offer, plus the additional 100+ from the 2 x £50 spend.
