Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Quick credit cards update

Two quick things of note.

The current (pretty rubbish) offer for the Lloyds TSB Duo Avios cards expired on the 18th.  It has been replaced with … exactly the same offer!  It now runs until 3rd April next year, which means we won’t be seeing anything truly exciting on these cards for at least another six months.

As a reminder, the free card offers a voucher for 18,000 Avios but forces you to book a one-night hotel stay at the same time.  The paid card offers a 30,000 Avios voucher which must be redeemed with a paid 2-night hotel stay.

To be fair, if you have no pile of hotel points waiting to be redeemed and weren’t planning to stay with friends or family for free, this deal could work out OK.  30,000 Avios, used on Reward Flight Savers inside Europe, should get you around £300 of value which easily offsets the £50 card fee.  Both offers require you to spend £500 per month for the first three months.

Secondly, I have found a new link for the 40,000 Priority Club points sign-up offer on the Priority Club Black Visa.  This one doesn’t expire until 13th November, which is two weeks later than the old link.  £99 fee applies but you also now get Priority Club Platinum status as well.

    Do you know if those Avios vouchers could be used alongside a 2-4-1 voucher from BAPP?

    The American Airlines AAdvantage 20,000 bonus miles offer for AmEx and Visa cards from MBNA is back – or not, as the case may be.

    AA’s latest ‘personalized AAirmail’ e-mail refers to the 20,000 bonus offer.

    “Earn Up To 20,000 AAdvantage(R) Bonus Miles.
    Two Cards. One Account.
    Get The Card That Takes Your Miles Further.”

    Clicking on the link produces details of the 5,000 bonus offer.

    Hmmm.

      Interesting. AA site and my usual MBNA link still say 5k! Perhaps it launches Monday.

      • Gus says:

        Nope, it is still 5k today, even when clicked through from the banner on my AAirmail which clearly says ‘earn up to 20k bonus miles’. Not sure where the 20k option is hidden.

        A little misleading though…

    Thanks, yes I saw this – watch out for a post tomorrow!
