News in brief:
New Tesco Wine bonus code, open to all
Tesco Wine is currently offering 1,000 bonus Clubcard points (2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club miles) with any order of £60 or more.
This code is open to everyone until 5,000 people have used it. ALL stock is included, even sale items, so you could get a genuine bargain. As the code has already been floating around for 48 hours I would order sooner rather than later.
The code you need is XXHTYA. The Tesco Wine home page is here.
Qatar Airways selling £1,000 business class tickets again
Qatar Airways has been selling some exceptionally cheap business class tickets to Asia over the past year. As Qatar is a member of oneworld, these tickets also earn British Airways tier points – normally 560 per return trip (140 x 4, given the connection in Doha). That is almost Silver status.
For bookings before August 2nd, there are again some excellent fares out of Amsterdam. These are for travel between September 1st and June 10th 2016.
You cannot fly out between 10-31 December or 16-28 March. You cannot return between 31 December – 15 January or 27 March – 10 April.
Sample business class return fares from Amsterdam include:
- Bangkok €1,385 (£967)
- Abu Dhabi €1,320
- Durban €1,765
- Goa €1,695
- Jo’burg €1,765
- Phuket €1,565
- Singapore €1,420
and many more. The best thing to do is to head over to qatarairways.com and have a play around.
In terms of aircraft, the best seats are on the A380, A350 and B787 aircraft. The B777 fleet has an older seat but is still fully flat. Avoid the A330 and A340 aircraft if possible (although, at this price, you can’t complain!) as they usually have sloping business class seats. My review of the 787 seat is here.

Gate 365 deal at Selfridges
Gate 365, the online shopping portal run by British Airways, is running an interesting deal with Selfridges at the moment.
You receive 16 Avios for every £1 you spend. This is a good offer and, if you planning any major purchases, it is worth checking to see if the Selfridges site has them.
The Gate 365 home page can be found here. Thanks to the two readers who sent this over. There are also a few promotions running with other retailers at the moment.
