News in brief:

Priority Pass adds sleep pods in Dubai

You can’t accuse airport lounge card Priority Pass of standing still.  After adding a restaurant / bar at Gatwick South (you get £15 of free food and drink by showing your Priority Pass) and seven restaurants / bars in Sydney, it is now offering its first sleep pods!

When I was in Dubai in March I walked passed the YAWN area and thought it looked …. umm …. interesting.  This is a new airport sleep concept, whereby you can get a 2-hour session in one of 20 Igloo Sleep Pods – see photo below.

The pods are available 24 hours a day and come with free wi-fi and power points!  They are situated in Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport so ideal for anyone flying on Emirates or Qantas.

As a Priority Pass member, you can get two hours use of a Sleep Pod for free.  Full details are on the Priority Pass website here.

Last chance for TopCashback / Avios bonus

A quick reminder that tomorrow, 20th May, is your last chance to convert any money you have sitting in cashback site TopCashback into Avios or BA Executive Club with a 25% bonus.

You are getting 1.25 Avios for every 1p you send over, which means you are ‘buying’ Avios for 0.8p.  That is a very good deal and well worth jumping on.

(EDIT: a comment below suggests that the TCB website is badly worded and the offer actually ends at midnight tonight, the 19th.)

    May or may not work for you: I had the same problem just now with only 5% showing – I went to the part payout option, deselected one item, clicked recalculate and the 25% bonus appeared. Added the item back in to make it a full payout, recalculated again and the 25% bonus remained so did my transfer. So maybe a glitch in the system that the recalculating solves?

    last time, when it said it had dropped to 5%, you still got 25% for another 12 or 24 hrs

    Sleep pods really shouldn’t have wifi… sleeping doesn’t require an internet connection!
