News in brief:
£100 off a £150 Naked Wines order with Amex
If you take a look at the ‘My Offers’ section of your BA / SPG / Gold / Platinum American Express account online, you may see an interesting deal from Naked Wines.
Naked Wines, recently acquired by Majestic, is a cut above your usual wine business. Part of the company involves a Kickstarter-type model called ‘Angels’ which lets you invest in independent winemakers who are looking to develop their business, in return for some wine later on.
Additional wine is made available for general sale. When you spend £150 or more before 23rd December, you will receive a £100 discount when you use the special Amex code.
You can put together your own mixed case so you won’t be forced to buy 6 or 12 bottles of the same wine.
It is only available to new customers, but I’m sure you can find a suitable household member if required. To save postage, you can pick up your order at your nearest Majestic Wine warehouse.
The code is valid for the first 1,000 orders.
250 Clubcard points (600 Avios) with Google Chromecast
The new version of Google Chromecast is now available for the same £30 price as the previous version.
This is rarely discounted, so the opportunity to pick up 600 Avios or 625 Virgin Flying Club miles is a welcome bonus.
You can buy via this Tesco Direct page here. It is dropping in and out of stock but keep checking back if you are keen. The offer runs until 9th November so I’m sure you will be able to catch it.
United Airlines ‘buy miles’ bonus
Finally, United Airlines is offering a ‘mystery’ buy miles bonus until 14th December. You need to log in here to see what you are offered.
The maximum bonus appears to be 80% – most people seem to get this. United has offered better than this (100% is not uncommon) but if you need to top off your account in the short term then this is OK.
