  1. Anyone received their Eithad match yet? I’ve not heard a thing from them so far.

    • David L says:

      Nothing from Etihad either – I have just sent them a chaser email. However, part of me wonders whether it may have ended up in my Junk folder as the Etihad email address is unusual (*.ae).

      Great feature Rob – I’d forgotten about a number of these promos.

  2. Manuel says:


    Does anyone know if you can get the 1500 Avios from Iberia if you book a flight for somebody else?


    • Raffles says:

      Good question. If you are logged in when the booking is made, then I think you would. No promises though.

  3. How do I go about getting the 1000 points for changing my password for HH?

  4. i had the same with a stay booked for August 2015. Contacted the hotel and asked them to charge the credit card as per the T&Cs of the booking. They did a few days later and I got the credit automatically from Amex.

  5. I had a similar thing with a Hilton last year. I just rang the hotel themselves, said I had been expecting it to come out but it had not and could they take the payment over the phone. They were more than happy to help.

  6. Any of the New Zealand readers who tried for the Qantas status match received it yet? If so, how long did it take? Just curious!

  7. Remember that the Virgin Flying Club points can be moved to IHG 1:1.
    We are having a White Virgin each and adding to the 60+30 and add 15,000 MR points to give five nights in Holiday Inn free.

  8. louie-m says:

    So what do we think about the Virgin/Clubcard transfer bonus? I’m minded to take advantage although I have no travel plans for a while as I have plenty of Avios but I’m worried about Virgin devaluating now that BA have……

  9. Think Square says:

    How does the Tesco->Virgin autoconvert bonus work? Do I have to wait for a full quarter’s points to be converted to get the bonus?
