Bits: 12 Avios per £1 at M&S, Heathrow Rewards bonus, FREE breakfast at Thistle

Some more news that came up whilst I was running around PR functions this week ….!

12 Avios per £1 with M&S at the Gate 365 e-store

Reader Dom dropped me a note to point out that Marks & Spencer is currently offering 12 Avios per £1 on orders placed through the British Airways Gate 365 shopping portal.

This is a very generous deal which will run until October 12th.   There are some other ‘50% extra’ and ‘double Avios’ offers as well but none as good as this.

Heathrow Rewards

1,000 Avios with new Heathrow Rewards sign-up before September 30th

There are some very generous Heathrow Rewards sign-up deals at present.  This one offers 2,500 Avios for a £75 spend whilst this one offers 2,500 Avios for 2 x £50 spends.

If you are in Heathrow this weekend and looking for something easier, Avios is offering 1,000 points when you join Heathrow Rewards and spend just £25.  You must spend the money before the 30th – you can retroclaim your points with a receipt if you don’t have an iPhone which can store an electronic membership card via Wallet (nee Passbook).

The sign-up link is here.

free breakfast

Free breakfast from Thistle Hotels

Thistle Hotels is currently offering FREE breakfast on all bookings.

It is a slightly convoluted offer.  You need to sign up for the Thistle Hotels newsletter to get a code.  You book a ‘room only’ rate only but add the code during the booking process – this upgrades your booking.

You cannot add free breakfast to an existing booking.  You must book before the end of 2015 but can stay at any point.

Further details and the sign-up page for their newsletter can be found here.

Bits: £1 BA 'hold your fare' offer, new Barclays credit card rules, Premier Inn 'stay 3, get 1 free'
Numerous BA cancellations at Gatwick for Summer 2016

    Can you buy gift cards from M&S and John Lewis to get the bonus avios accrual?

    I was thinking of buying some gift cards to use for my weekly food shop. Will this work?

  4. Apple is at 4 avios per £, and it does not apply to the new models iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
