Eurostar is running another public sale from January 2nd to January 14th, offering seats to Paris and Brussels for just £59 return.
However, if you use this link, you have access to the sale NOW before the general public.
Here are the terms and conditions:
You will pay £59 return to Paris, Lille, Calais or Brussels, in Economy.
You can depart from St Pancras, Ebbsfleet or Ashford
You must travel from 20th January to 3rd April
Black-out dates are 31 January to 2 February 2014, 14 to 24 February 2014, 28 February to 2 March 2014 inclusive, 7 to 9 March 2014 inclusive
A £4 credit card charge will apply
There are 10,000 pairs to tickets available at these prices during the pre-sale period, and some peak services are not available.
Compared to recent Eurostar sales, availability – especially at weekends – looks a bit sparse. However, if you can be flexible then £59 is obviously a great deal.
TopCashBack offers 2% cashback on Eurostar sales. Whilst you cannot access these sale fares via the TopCashback link, it might still track if you access the Eurostar site from TopCashback (to get the cookie on your PC) and then use the link at the top of this post to access the sale fares.
Remember that if you have an American Express Platinum card you can use Eurostar lounges just by flashing the card. However, you cannot bring in a guest, so your companion would need to be your supplementary Platinum cardholder.
