News in brief:
Lufthansa offering 10,000 miles for an Economist subscription
I wrote recently about the offer of 12,000 Avios points for taking out a £150 Economist subscription. Lufthansa has now launched their own version.
On the face of it, the deal is worse. You only earn 10,000 Miles & More miles for your £150 spend. However, Miles & More miles are a lot harder to earn if you live in the UK – Lufthansa is not an American Express Membership Rewards partner and they are not a Tesco partner.
You also cannot buy Miles & More miles any longer. This offer effectively lets you buy 10,000 miles for 1.5p each and throws in 52 free magazines as well! The link is here if you are interested.
Hyatt and Amex London event announced
For the fourth year, Hyatt and American Express are supporting a charitable weekend event in London from October 8th – 11th, organised by Driven2Travel and Luxury Travel Diary.
Whilst it is being held at the Hyatt Churchill hotel in London, guests are welcome from anywhere. It is a better deal if you live outside London as you need to stay at The Churchill or its sister hotel the Andaz to participate.
There are various events – a champagne reception at The Churchill on Thursday, an American Express focus group on Friday, dinner at Hyatt’s Andaz hotel in the City on Friday, a Molton Brown-themed brunch on Saturday and a gala dinner on the Saturday. All of the events are free as long as you are booked in the Hyatt Churchill or Andaz on specific cash rates.
I am due to be at the gala dinner on Saturday as a guest of the sponsors. However, Head for Points, for clarity, has no involvement in the organisation of the event itself.
More London taxi discount codes including new £10 Hailo code
Finally, a couple of additional taxi codes as these always prove popular.
London black cab app Hailo, which doesn’t always have an offer running, is currently offering a £10 sign-up credit when you download the app and use code STANDARD10.
Meanwhile, London minicab app Kabbee has reactivated the Head for Points exclusive £10 code. You need to enter code [deleted as now expired] after downloading the app. Note that the credit is only valid for two weeks and you need to book a ride costing £10.01 or more to use it (the price is shown before you book).
There is also still £10 sign-up credit available for Hailo’s main black cab rival Gett (was Get Taxi) – see here.
Finally, if Uber has recently launched near you, you can still get a free ride up to the value of £15 by downloading the app and registering code headforpoints.
