News in brief:
Tesco brings back its Lego deal
Tesco has brought back – but just until Monday – its Clubcard deal on Lego.
If you spend over £60 on any of the sets featured on this page, you will receive 1,000 bonus Clubcard points. That is worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club miles.
Spend over £30 and you receive 500 points (this offer does not show on the main promo website but it does show when you click through to a Lego product). Tesco pricing on Lego seems pretty keen so, combined with the bonus, you could do OK here. The participating products are here.
TRIPLE Etihad Guest miles with Hertz
Etihad Guest is offering triple miles and a 20% discount with Hertz for rentals of 7 days or more booked before the end of April. These must be for pick-up dates between 1 May and 31 August.
You earn between 550 and 825 Etihad Guest miles per rental, based on your Etihad status. That would mean 1,650 to 2,475 miles when tripled. Full details on the Etihad website.
Virgin Atlantic launches 4-day Easter sale
Finally, Virgin Atlantic has launched an Easter Weekend sale which runs until Monday. Flights in all classes, to all destinations are included and many routes can be booked until the end of the year.
The pricing is not very aggressive – there is nothing in Upper Class to North America for under £2,000 for example – but if you have travel plans to a destination served by Virgin it is worth checking the price. Details are here.
