News in brief:

Qatar running good Business Class deals from Edinburgh

Qatar Airways appears keen to build up interest in its Edinburgh service.

There are some good deals bookable before 21st October.  These are valid for travel at any point in the next year, subject to occasional black out dates.

Edinburgh to Dubai is £1,250 in Business Class – a decent price.  Most of Asia and South Africa is around £1,800 – £1,900.

Until 18th October (tomorrow!), these combine with the NEWLOOK2015 promo code.  This takes the fare down to £1,156 for Edinburgh to Dubai.

To put these deals in context, the best sale deal on Qatar from Manchester to Dubai is currently £1,860!

You earn Avios and BA tier points when you fly Qatar and the Edinburgh service is operated with a new Boeing 787 featuring the latest business class seat which I reviewed here.  It is an impressive 1-2-1 layout.

You can see details of the Edinburgh deals on this page of the Qatar website.

Tesco running 1 month free trial of Delivery Saver

This is slightly off topic for HFP but – given the Clubcard link to Avios and Virgin, and the fact that it is the weekend – worth a quick mention.

Tesco is currently offering a one-month free trial of Delivery Saver.  This allows you to receive your online grocery deliveries free of charge (minimum spend £40).  You also get all of your Tesco Direct orders delivered for free via their ‘next day delivery’ service (minimum spend £10), free delivery on Tesco Wine and F&F orders and first dibs at selecting delivery slots in the run up to Christmas.

You can sign up via this link.  You need to make a note in your diary to cancel after the one month trial is up, otherwise you will begin to be charged the standard fee of £3 to £6 per month.

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (, which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

  1. I’m trying to plan my Honeymoon and was looking at EDI-DOH,DOH-DPS on 13-OCT-2016 and returning NRT-DOH,DOH-EDI 04-NOV-2016 which has fantastic pricing for similar searchable dates.

    Here’s my issue, the Qatar offer site says they need to be booked by today 21-OCT-2015 with a Travel Period of 25-SEP-2015 to 14-NOV-2016 however the furthest ahead it allows you to book is 16-OCT-2016. Do you think the offer will be extended or is it just a typo?

    • The Offers are now bookable until the 4th November, hopefully they will extend again
