News in brief:

500 free Marriott Rewards points for following them on Instagram

Marriott is offering 500 free Marriott Rewards points if you follow them on Instagram before 21st June.

The good news is that you don’t need to have a smartphone to do this.  You can use Instagram as a normal desktop website, so you have no excuse not to do this whatever your phone.

I only value these points at around £2.50 but as it will only take a few seconds to complete the task it is not a bad return on your time!

The Marriott Rewards Instagram page, which includes a link to join Instagram, is here.

€20 off an airberlin flight

If you travelling in Europe this Summer, this airberlin discount code may be of interest.

Sign up for the airberlin newsletter via this page on their website and you will receive 2 x €10 airberlin voucher codes to use on future flights.

Speaking of airberlin, Anika will be flying them from New York to Berlin in business class next month.  With tax of just £3 this remains excellent value as a one-way redemption.  She will be doing a full review of the seat, food and service.

    Rob, Would this stop Marriott rewards points from expiring?

  • DS says:

    Speaking of Air Berlin :

    Recommend topbonus to your colleagues and friends and for every referral secure yourself up to 1,000 miles for attractive rewards and free flights.*

    Here’s how easy it is:
    •Log in to your online profile here and invite your colleagues and friends to topbonus
    •If the referred person successfully registers for topbonus and the newsletter, we will credit you with 500 award miles
    •And best of all: until 31 July, we will double your award miles for every extra referral after the first one – that’s 1,000 award miles per referral! So invite multiple friends now and secure many extra miles!
    Your colleagues and friends naturally benefit from your referral too: upon successful topbonus registration and subscription to the newsletter, they will each receive up to 1,000 award miles as a welcome gift.

    How much tax would it be if the AirBerlin flight were booked with AB’s own FFP (TopBonus) points ?

    • Raffles says:

      Do a cash booking and see what the tax figure is. Heathrow charge alone is £32.
