News in brief:
100% bonus on Etihad Guest transfers
Etihad Guest has launched a special offer for Heathrow Rewards members (the loyalty scheme which gives points for Heathrow Airport shopping, parking in the official Heathrow car parks and for Heathrow Express trips).
Until September 30th, you will receive a 100% bonus when you convert your Heathrow Rewards points into Etihad Guest miles.
Three people who convert will also win an additional 50,000 Etihad miles.
The offer shows on the Etihad Guest page of the Heathrow Rewards website. Remember that, if you have the UK Etihad credit cards, you also get a free upgrade to the Heathrow Rewards ‘Premium’ tier which doubles your earning to 2 points per £1 if you register here.
Premium tier members now get FREE super-fast wi-fi at Heathrow – 500% faster than the speed that everyone else gets.
Track your luggage with Smart Tags
HfP reader Kerry sent me some information about Smart Tags, his new luggage tracking business, and I am happy to give it a mention as it looks interesting.
Smart Tags attach to your luggage like standard luggage tags. They include a QR code, however, which is personalised to you. If the bag is lost, anyone who scans the code using a smartphone with QR reading software on it will see your contact information.
Importantly, you can control what information is shown. You may be happy with your full name and address or you may just want a mobile or email address to come up. It is up to you.
There are NO on-going costs with Smart Tags. You pay a one-off fee of £10.95 including postage for two tags and the tracking code will continue to work ad-infinitum.
