Two weeks ago I wrote that The Sunday Times Travel Magazine had rolled over its generous offer of 4,500 Avios points for taking out a £30 subscription. It was extended to 3rd February 2017.
That is still the case. However, the magazine has now changed the rules.
The original deal offered 4,500 Avios for a £30 one year subscription to The Sunday Times Travel Magazine. This was a fantastic deal even if the didn’t want the magazine – although you would have found a lot in it worth reading.
The revised offer is less attractive.
You now receive:
4,500 Avios with a two year, £60, subscription
1,000 Avios with a one year, £30, subscription
On this basis, it becomes a ‘good’ deal rather than a ‘no brainer’ deal.
The offer does NOT show immediately. You need to enter AVIOSIM or AVIOSPP2 in the ‘Promotional Code’ box and hit ‘Submit’. The page will refresh and the revised deal will show.
(EDIT: At the moment, the site is refusing to accept the codes. However, the codes above are correct – the latter code can be verified here. Keep on trying until it works or call 01795 414827 instead.)
YOU MUST CLICK SUBMIT so the page reloads. If you don’t, you will NOT get the Avios as you will be signing up to the standard package.
If you do not see a box during the check-out process asking for your Avios or BAEC account number, you should assume that it has gone wrong and will not work. Try again using a different browser or device.
At 4,500 Avios for a £60 spend, you are paying 1.33p per Avios point. This isn’t a terrible deal when you add in the value of the two years-worth of magazines as well. It just isn’t the steal it used to be.
