Chasing my 1,500 bonus Membership Rewards points from Admiral

1,000 bonus Avios when you convert £300 at Amex Currency Exchange or Moneycorp

Some people received this offer by email yesterday.  However, it is NOT targetted and is described on the Amex Currency Exchange website, and so must be open to all.  It is not a bad deal and certainly worth a look if you need foreign currency. […]

British Airways is running a huge holiday giveaway down at Victoria Station this week. Details are sketchy (at the time of writing, anyway) and the advertising to date – such as in the Evening Standard on Friday – has been purposely vague.  However, I understand that […]

Thoughts on the new Amex / Foursquare deals for February

I must admit, I was a little surprised when – like many of you – I was emailed on Saturday with details of the new Amex / Foursquare promotions that will run in February.  Did they learn nothing when we cleaned out Harvey Nichols before […]

This is my review of the Holiday Inn Stratford City hotel in London, at the Westfield shopping centre. I wrote last week of my experiences on ‘£20 per night’ promotions at the Ramada Docklands and the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum. Last week, I set out to […]
