News in brief:

Free Heathrow Express upgrade extended

If you have Star Gold status via any of the frequent flyer schemes in the Star Alliance, you can still claim a free First Class upgrade on Heathrow Express.

The link with the offers is here.

This deal was originally due to expire at the end of May but has been extended for another month.

Note that you must be travelling on a full-fare Standard Class ticket which means that you cannot link it to the 12% discount for MasterCard holders which is currently available (see our ‘Avios Promos’ page for that link).

London shopping deals with American Express

Thanks to reader Yosuke, I was sent details of an American Express promotion aimed at people who live outside the UK but are visiting here – although anyone can take part.

Take a look at this site.

As well as hotel deals, it has the following fashion offers:

20% off at Gap

10% off at Liu Jo

£10 off £100 spend at Pepe Jeans

£15 off £150 at World Duty Free

10% off at Zadig & Voltaire

10% off at Camper

20% off at Banana Republic

To redeem, you must print off a voucher to take into the store and pay with an American Express card.  Most are valid until the end of August.
