Double or triple Shangri-La Golden Circle points this Summer

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

A lot of Head for Points readers now have a Shangri-La Golden Circle account following their ‘free points’ promotion last Autumn. I know that most readers are waiting to redeem them for a free meal in The Shard once they start allowing point redemptions in August. A number of readers have also used them successfully for free meals at other Shangri-La properties.

If you are interested in topping up your Golden Circle account, Shangri-La is running an interesting promotion this Summer.

Until August 31st, they are offering double points for a one or two night stay and triple points for a 3+ nights stay.

Full details of the promotion and a registration link can be found here.

Once registered, you will find that you can combine double / triple points with their ‘Holiday In Style’ promotion. This gives you free breakfast plus a dining or beverage credit of up to $200.

Whilst the Shangri-La properties in Europe are expensive and high-end, they have a lot of reasonably priced options in Asia. It is worth a look if you are heading down to that part of the world over the Summer.

    Yep – received the promo email from them just before the promotion started on 15th June.

    I used 750 points to book a night in the Trader’s Hotel in Manila in August. There is a promotion on as it’s normally 1,000 points

    Had a great meal at the Shangri La Abu Dhabi this month thanks to last years ‘free points’ promo. Used two vouchers and had almost nothing to pay, fairly easy process to collect the vouchers also. I suspect the Shard is going to have quite the influx come August…

      Haha, august 1st here we come

      • Rob says:

        I am at the Shard for a drinks party (not thrown by the hotel, for a charity) next Monday so I will report back!

    I’m looking at the Shangri-La Bangkok and am confused by this Holiday in Style offer. They state that the offer includes “your room accommodation at the best available rate”.

    Yet the Holiday in Style rate is THB7000pn. Their ‘Best Available Rate” for the same room is THB5800pn and yet the cheapest rate (advance purchase) is THB5220pn.

    It just doesn’t seem right to me!

  • […] This promotion would probably double-up with the other Shangri-La offers I mentioned in this post. […]
