Some news in brief:
£15 Hailo black cab credit – including existing users
London taxi app Hailo is running a promotion in association with Travelex to offer £15 of credit to everyone – even people who are already registered with the service.
If you are not already a Hailo user, you need to download the Hailo app for Android or iOS and enter code TRAVELEX15 under the ‘Wallet’ section. If you ARE a Hailo customer, simply add the code on the ‘Wallet’ page.
The £15 credit will immediately show. I have tested this with my existing Hailo account and it works fine. Note that the credit expires on Monday April 13th so don’t forget to use it by then. My best guess is that the credit is only valid for one trip up to a maximum of £15 – you cannot take three rides of £5.
Tesco DVD pre-order bonuses return
Tesco is again offering up to 200 bonus Clubcard points with selected DVD pre-orders. This is worth 480 Avios or 500 Virgin Flying Club miles per order.
200 points are available on the last Hobbit film (£10, offer ends 19 April) – see here. 100 points are available on a selection of other films including The Theory of Everything and Birdman – see here.
The points are added to your Clubcard account immediately (and you are charged immediately) even though the disks are not sent out for a few weeks.
£10 of Kabbee minicab credit for London
Meanwhile, minicab app Kabbee has extended our special Head for Points sign-up code until the end of April. Code [deleted as now expired] will get you a £10 credit when you register on their website or download the app.
More information and links can be found in our original article here. Kabbee works with 70 minicab firms in London and is especially useful outside of the central areas where it is harder to get a black cab.
The code requires a minimum spend of £10.01 (you see your fare before accepting a ride) and must be used within two weeks of signing up.
Designer First Class sleep suits from Qatar Airways
Finally, Qatar Airways sent me a press release to highlight their new designer First Class sleepwear. Passengers on overnight flights in First will now receive a sleepsuit and slippers designed by Missoni. As you can see from the image above, it is (for Missoni) quite tasteful.
A range of Giorgio Armani products has been introduced to both business class and first class amenity kits. This may, however, not beat the 30ml bottle of Ferragamo EDT that I got in Singapore Airlines First Class last Summer and which kept me going until Christmas.
