DONATE HERE FOR A CHANCE TO WIN ONE MILLION AVIOS


It may be a new year, but here at The Points Guy, we’re still raising awareness — and money — for Comic Relief US, an organization dedicated to supporting programs that work to end poverty and injustice around the world. We’ve teamed up with the British Airways, Iberia and Aer Lingus credit cards from Chase for this campaign, and if you donate at least $10 by Jan. 30, 2022, you’ll be entered for a chance to win one of 10 grand prizes of one million Avios.

But it wouldn’t be a TPG campaign without some fantastic flash sweeps. And today, we’re live with our fourth special prize of this campaign: 100,000 Avios and a $2,500 Airbnb gift card.

When you donate at least $10 by Friday, Jan. 7 at 11:59 p.m. PST, you’ll be entered for a chance to win this prize and receive a chance to win the grand prize of one million Avios as one of the 10 randomly-selected winners.

In addition, as part of this newest flash sweeps, you can enter the code AIR200 when making your donation and earn an extra 200 entries into the grand-prize drawing.

By helping us raise money to support the work of Comic Relief US between now and January 30, 2022, you’ll not only be helping further the organization’s mission. A donation of $10 or more will enter you into a sweepstakes for a chance to win one of ten grand prizes: a million Avios (for each of the ten winners). Avios are incredibly versatile thanks to the airlines’ distance-based award charts, and here’s just a snapshot of what you could book with a million of them:

  • 250 one-way, short-haul flights on British Airways or Iberia (covering less than 651 miles in distance)
  • 111 one-way, economy-class flights on American Airlines (covering less than 1,151 miles in distance)
  • 29 one-way, business-class flights on Iberia from the Northeast U.S. to Madrid on off-peak dates
