News in brief:

Get 12 Avios per £1 with M&S at the Gate 365 e-store

Marks & Spencer is currently offering 12 Avios per £1 on orders placed through the British Airways Gate 365 shopping portal.

This is a very generous deal which will run until October 12th.   There are some other ‘50% extra’ and ‘double Avios’ offers as well but none as good as this.

Heathrow Rewards

1,000 Avios with new Heathrow Rewards sign-up offer

There are some very generous Heathrow Rewards sign-up deals at present.  This one offers 2,500 Avios for a £75 spend whilst this one offers 2,500 Avios for 2 x £50 spends.

If you are in Heathrow this weekend and looking for something easier, Avios is offering 1,000 points when you join Heathrow Rewards and spend just £25.  You must spend the money before the 30th – you can retroclaim your points with a receipt if you don’t have an iPhone which can store an electronic membership card via Wallet (nee Passbook).

The sign-up link is here.

Free breakfast from Thistle Hotels

Thistle Hotels is currently offering FREE breakfast on all bookings.

It is a slightly convoluted offer.  You need to sign up for the Thistle Hotels newsletter to get a code.  You book a ‘room only’ rate only but add the code during the booking process – this upgrades your booking.

You cannot add free breakfast to an existing booking.  You must book before the end of 2015 but can stay at any point.

Further details and the sign-up page for their newsletter can be found here.

    If you have the Amex Argos deal, they sell £50 M&S gift cards 🙂

    Can you buy gift cards from M&S and John Lewis to get the bonus avios accrual?

    I was thinking of buying some gift cards to use for my weekly food shop. Will this work?

    • Rob says:

      If they sell gift cards (I was tols M&S do but not tried, no idea about JL) then, yes, works fine.
