News in brief:
Tesco Grocery code still running
Reader Robert emailed to remind me that there is a functioning Tesco Grocery code out there with a surprisingly long expiry date.
Code XXNNRR gives an impressive 1,250 bonus Clubcard points when used on a £60 order placed on the Tesco grocery site here. That would be worth 3,000 Avios points!
The code will only work if you have not placed a Tesco Grocery order in roughly the last 12 months. New Clubcard accounts will definitely work OK – sign up here (click ‘Join Clubcard’ at the top of the page) or pick up a card in a Tesco store.
48 hour Hotels.com flash sale
Hotels.com is running a 48-hour flash sale today and tomorrow promising discounts of up to 40%. Full details are here.
I would take this claim with a pinch of salt and compare prices carefully, but it is worth a quick look if you do need to book somewhere this week.
Delta transatlantic reward sale
Delta Air Lines of the US is running a transatlantic reward sale until August 21st. If you have some Delta miles to use, this is a decent opportunity.
Only some routes are available. You are looking at 87,000 miles return in Business Class between Europe and the US and 42,000 miles in Economy. The link has details of the specific travel and blackout dates for each route.
£10 off at Fenwick and Bentalls
Finally, a new cashback deal has appeared on the American Express website. You will receive a £10 statement credit when you spend £50 in Fenwick or Bentalls by September 30th.
Log in to your American Express account and see if it is shows under ‘Offers’ on your card statement pages. I had it on my BA, Platinum and SPG cards. If it not there, all is not lost – it may appear on the ‘cardmember offers’ website in a few days which would allow anyone to register.
