  1. Don’t leave it too late with your Diamond Club card – council tax, utilities etc – as the purchase need to POST to your a/c by 30th September – this can take a couple of days

  2. Just planning ahead for a life without Diamond Club (and a milestone anniversary next year) – how quickly does Hilton gold status come through after hitting 10k spend? Do you have to wait for a statement date? Thanks.

    • If your after Hilton status and have the £99 ihg card(which gives you premium elite ihg status) then Hilton will status match to diamond.

  3. Summer hols 2017

    Dates: RFS flights/ other redemptions using Avios – you can now book the return flights at the end of the summer hols & get your kids into school on day 1 of term – excellent availability right now as it’s just gone T-355

    • cheers
      wish I had enough Avios in my account!

      On a side note after your post about TCB, I think for general purchases one should look carefully at Avios store, with some bonus points offer it can work out much better avios earning compared to TCB route.

  4. Surprised the end of the Tesco Gift Card offer wasn’t announced here as a date – I’ve been buying like mad in advance of the deadline!

  5. Also anyone who has GAP offer should consider going via Avios estore which has 9 Avios per £1 currently

  6. OT – regarding Accelerate did anyone get the Saturday stay bonus in their offer? Is it just stay two weekend nights of which one must be a Saturday or something different as the wording is terrible and suggests that a 2 night stay inc Saturday must be booked. Thanks

  7. Rob, another addition to list
    £200 off trailfinder for £1000 or more spend
    That ends on 30/09/2016; so only one more weekend left now.

    OT: The Holiday Inn Stratford-upon-Avon seems to have become a Crowne Plaza…

  9. Did anyone get the miles posted for the Best Western Miles&More promo?
    I registered on the BW and Miles&More page but my most recent stay only posted 500 miles instead of 3500.
