News in brief:

£20 in Amazon vouchers with a TripAdvisor hotel booking

TripAdvisor is offering a £20 Amazon voucher when you book a hotel via their UK site for £150 or more.  Details are here.

It is a little fiddly but the deal seems decent enough:

Book a hotel via tripadvisor.co.uk for at least £150 before taxes (Marriott-owned hotels are excluded)

Review the hotel on TripAdvisor

Receive a £20 Amazon gift card by email

You need to book your hotel by 3rd October and complete your stay and submit your review by 14th November.

Full rules and exclusions can be found on the TripAdvisor site here.  There is a limit of one £20 voucher per person.

Tesco deals round-up

I wanted to do a quick summary of a few Tesco Clubcard offers currently available as these are easy ways of generating Avios or Virgin Flying Club miles.

Today (Sunday) is the last day to get 500 Clubcard points (1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin miles) for spending £30 on Hasbro board and kids games.  Details in this Shopper Points article.

There are also bonus points currently available on HP printer ink and photo paper (article) and Canon printer ink (article).  All give 100 Clubcard points (240 Avios, 250 Virgin miles) per product.

You can also pick up 1,500 Clubcard points (3,600 Avios, 3,750 Virgin miles) with a £109 Samsung soundbar (article).

Etihad discount code

Correct Etihad discount codes

Sorry.  The Etihad ‘30% off ‘ discount codes I ran yesterday were wrong.  I went back to the document I was sent by Etihad to see whose fault it was and, erm, it was mine.

These codes valid for flights from the UK booked before Monday evening.  These give a 30% discount on fares before taxes.

STFBUS will get you 30% off the base fare on flights with outbound travel before 23rd November and return travel before 30th November.  There are no black out dates.

STFECO gives a similar discount on economy tickets, although the saving is less impressive because the base fare is a far smaller percentage of the total cost in this cabin.

You can book on the Etihad website here.

    I find myself increasingly disliking TripAdvisor. When they first came along it seemed great, but now I feel it has lost its value. There are too many dubious reviews, the rankings often don’t bear any reality with what are the best places in a given city, they treat operators with disdain. All the reviewers are providing the content for TripAdvisor to profit from and they get very little back for all the time they have invested. TripAdvisor desperately try to gamify the review process by trying to convince reviewers that their individual reviews actually mean something, rather than it is their way of keeping people providing content.

    A £20 gift card is not nearly enough for me to want to participate! Rant over!

      You get quite a lot back – a website with millions of reviews on it. It’s no different to contributing to this site.

    £14 on BA booking process to reserve your tickets for 24 hrs – wasn’t it less than that in the past?
