News in brief:
2,400 Avios with £60 LEGO spend
Tesco Direct is running a ‘short but sweet’ offer on LEGO.
Until Wednesday night, you will receive 1,000 Clubcard points (worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club) when you spend £60 on the plastic stuff.
Special Etihad economy deal to Hong Kong
Etihad is running a special promotional code on Hong Kong flights at the moment. Using code JUNE30 you can fly from Heathrow to Hong Kong for just £344. This is exceptional value for such a long trip and is £25 cheaper than the current Cathay Pacific sale prices – albeit that flight is direct and earns Avios.
I’m not sure of the exact travel dates but I was able to find dates in June at this price.
15% off Iberia flights from the UK – today only
Iberia has been running a special discount for its newsletter subscribers this week which I forgot to mention over the weekend.
It is still valid today, however, and you can fly until the end of the year (July and August excluded).
The code ‘INTERNET’ used on iberia.com will get you 15% off economy or business class flights departing from the UK.
It is valid only on Iberia and Air Nostrum. No stopover are allowed.
