News in brief:
Get £30-£50 of free taxi credit when you download Gett
Gett, the taxi app which operates in London and various other cities across the UK, is currently offering up to £50 of credit to new members when they are referred by a friend.
The credit comes with a catch – it comes in the form of 10 x £5 credits and expires after two weeks.
(EDIT: it seems it is ‘up to’ £50 and some people receive 10 x £3. This may be if you are outside London. I referred myself as a test on Sunday and got 10 x £5 so the kids get a taxi to school all week!)
However, if you take a lot of short taxi rides on a regular basis (or could be tempted to do so if they were free or virtually free!) then this is a good deal.
If you are already a member of Gett you could sign up a friend or partner and then delete and reinstall the app on your phone using their log-in details.
Details are on this page on the Gett site, together with my refer a friend code GTEWGXS if you don’t know anyone who can refer you themselves.
25% bonus on TopCashback transfers to Avios
TopCashback has launched a new two-month bonus when you convert your cashback to Avios points instead of taking it as cash.
The bonus is 25%. You will receive 125 Avios points for every £1 on cashback you send over to TCB.
This means that you are effectively buying Avios points for 0.8p each. This is a good deal in my view. If I had to do ‘something’ to earn Avios – such as buying some LEGO for bonus Clubcard points and reselling it – then I would be looking for a lower price than 0.8p.
However, as this is a ‘no work’ job, and as I know from the last few years that I will get an average of 1.2p of value from my Avios redemptions, I am happy to convert my existing cash balance over.
If you are currently using Quidco for your online shopping you may want to switch over to TopCashback as part of this deal. If you use our refer a friend link here you will receive a £7.50 bonus, which would transfer into 937 Avios, when you have earned your first £10 of cashback.
