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.
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.
