News in brief:

New American Express cashback deals

A new batch of statement credit deals may have hit your BA Amex, SPG Amex, Amex Gold or Amex Platinum online account over the weekend.

These include:

£10 back on £70 spend at World Duty Free (old offer, extended to 9th August)

£10 back on £50 spend at House of Fraser (old offer, extended to 9th August)

£25 back on £85 spend at

£10 back on £70 spent at Argos (think ‘gift cards’!)

None of these deals have yet appeared at the website so, until they do, you can only register if they appear on your online statement.

Expedia and flash sales

Both Expedia and are due to be launching 72-hour flash sales this morning.  (Both are owned by the same company, so this is not a coincidence!)

At the time of writing the deals are not live so I am not sure what will be on offer, but if you are looking to book a hotel in the next couple of days it may be worth a look.  Both sales are valid for bookings completed by 26th July.

The Expedia sale should be here, the sale should be here.

Bicester Village

Up to 400% bonus Lufthansa miles at Bicester Village

Designer shopping centre Bicester Village is offering quadruple Miles & More miles when you spend over £450 in one day.  This means 4 miles per £1 spent.  There are smaller bonuses for smaller levels of spending.

This offer runs from tomorrow until 15th July.  Full details can be found here.  Similar offers are running for Singapore Airlines, Jet and Malaysia Airlines as you can see here.

Bicester Village is also an Avios partner although they do not seem to be participating in this promotion.  That said, I would keep an eye out in case something launches in the next few days.
