    Time to thank the wife….

      John, I hadn’t realised that Iain had married :

      With regard to the promotion, t&c point 13 alone means I’ll not enter.

  • Clive J says:

    All I found was an advert for a photo App. I suspect they are promoting it with free Avios flights.

  • Scott says:

    Probably something like Tesco do where you get 2x, 3x etc for your Avios against things.
    Seems the next logical step from being able to buy experience days and suchlike.

    • Colin mackinnon says:

      Make 60sec video saying why some is deserving. If your one wins, the person gets a WT flight to NY with their pal – who might not be you! No insurance, transfers, hotels included. Other prizes are some avoid flights to Europe. Too much hassle in the T&Cs, to be frank – and the hassle to be in with a chance makes a five mile trip to a tesco for the previous HfP entry well worth it. This competition seems small stuff rather than BIG!

  • andy stock says:

    Hopefully another £1 sale! Went to AMS for a £1 return plus 9000 avios!

  • squills says:

    There are 50 decent prizes. Given the PITA effort needed to enter, I suggest there will be fewer than 5000 entries. This gives each entry a better than 1% chance of winning. If you enter multiple times, you will up that likelihood.

    Worth a go.

    • JQ says:

      That’s exactly what everyone else who will be entering is thinking…

    Link now dead?
