News in brief:
Good new LEGO deal launched at Tesco Direct
Tesco Direct has launched a good new LEGO promotion. You will receive 1,000 bonus Clubcard points (worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin miles) when you spend £60 of LEGO Friends before Monday night.
You may remember this memorable article by a HfP reader who set up a small business reselling LEGO bought in a similar promotion last year! If you know what you’re doing it is possible to buy Avios very cheaply this way.
The easier option, of course, is to buy the LEGO as presents for any young girls in your life.
Nobu Hotel Shoreditch now open for reservations
The most anticipated London hotel opening of the year is probably the Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, just off Great Eastern Street.
Opening in June 2017, it will have 143 guest rooms and seven suites and includes a 240 seat Nobu Shoreditch restaurant.
Apparently “The materiality of the property references its Shoreditch location and the history of one of London’s most culturally rich districts” but I will leave that to you to decide. I have seen it under construction and it does look impressive, although I have some doubts about the location given the room rates, which currently start at £238 per night pre-paid.
The hotel website launched this week and bookings are now being taken if you want to be among the first to try it out. It is only accepting bookings from late July at present although this should be brought forward at some point.
