Shop with eStore this festive season and fund your next getaway
’Tis the season to be busy. But ticking off your holiday to-do list needn’t be stressful. A gorgeous party outfit, treats for special meals, last-minute gifts: it’s all just a click away with the British Airways Avios eStore. And because you’ll collect double Avios at 12 top retailers until 22 December – plus additional Avios on top of this for every separate transaction you make – shopping brings you closer to your next trip. Here’s how…
What’s Christmas without turkey, mince pies and an epic cheeseboard? Stock up on everything you need for a decadent 25 December at Fortnum & Mason, where you’ll gain 8 Avios per pound spent. If you can’t decide, try a mixed hamper: The Fortnum’s Classic Christmas Hamper (£185) comes with biscuits, wine and chutney galore. When New Year’s Eve rolls around, Selfridges – where you’ll collect up to 12 Avios for each pound spent – has it sorted. Order a bottle of Laurent Perrier Cuvée Rosé Butterfly Robe (£79.99) and you’ll be ready to ring in 2022 in style. Of course, you’ll need some lovely festive tableware, too. Notonthehighstreet has everything from Champagne coupes to Christmas-themed plates, and you’ll collect 8 Avios per pound spent. Plus, until 31 December, each individual transaction you make through the eStore (up to a total of ten) brings in bonus Avios. These additional Avios increase in increments of 100, so one purchase collects an extra 100 Avios, two purchases collect an extra 200 and three purchases collect an extra 300. If you make three purchases, you’ll earn an extra 600 Avios on top of your double Avios reward.
Whether it’s your annual family showing of Home Alone or all those Christmas specials, you’ll enjoy the essential holiday viewing even more on a crystal-clear screen. Currys has the latest TV models from the likes of Samsung, LG and Sony, and buying one means you collect 2 Avios per pound spent. That’s nearly 33,330 Avios if you were to splurge on a 77-inch LG OLED 8K Smart TV (£19,999). Or tune in to your favourite festive playlist with a purchase from Apple. The funky HomePod Mini (£89), which gives big-speaker sound from a small device, lands you six Avios per pound spent. Prefer analogue entertainment? Collect up to 4 Avios for each pound you spend on board games, puzzles or craft kits from John Lewis & Partners – they’re a great way to bond with loved ones the old-fashioned way. And remember, the more purchases you make through the eStore until 31 December, the more Avios you’ll get, and the quicker you’ll be flying off to a dreamy destination. There’s never been a better reason to buy yourself Monopoly.
The last-minute gifts
Even the most organised shoppers sometimes need help with last-minute prezzies. Luckily, shopping through the eStore has that nailed, too. Kids big and small love LEGO and a purchase from the toy-making titan will garner you up to ten Avios per pound spent on everything from elaborate Titanic replicas to toddler-friendly train sets. Or give the gift of pampering: few beauty fans could resist a treat from LOOKFANTASTIC, where you’ll receive up to ten Avios per pound you spend. The Aromatherapy Associates Beauty Box (£100) comes with bath oil, face mask and hydrating hand cream scented with rose. Finally, if you have a frequent traveller in your life, bag them a slick new carry-on, such as the Jaeger leather backpack from M&S (£199). Because you’ll collect up to two Avios for every pound you spend at the retailer, it’s as much a gift for your next getaway as it is for the recipient’s.
Classy partywear, Christmas jumpers or comfy PJs – whatever your holiday fashion, you can find it by shopping with British Airways. When you want to turn heads over festive cocktails, NET-A-PORTER has just the slick handbags, glam jewellery and designer fashion required. Treat yourself to Dolce & Gabbana’s satin-trimmed metallic stretch-jersey midi dress (£1,700) and no one can call you underdressed for the office bash (and, you’ll receive up to 12 Avios per pound spent). For Christmas jumpers cool or kitsch, click through to ASOS, where knitwear comes with colourful snowflake prints or emblazoned with seasonal bakes. Buying Topman’s oversized knitted gingerbread jumper (£35), for example, means you collect from 6 Avios per pound spent until 22 December. For cosy Twixtmas loungewear, there’s no beating TK Maxx, which sees you collect 6 Avios per pound spent on its famously cosy slippers or pyjama sets.
