News in brief:

New Charles Tyrwhitt discount codes launched – and earn Avios

Avios has recently partnered with shirt maker Charles Tyrwhitt to offer Avios points whenever you shop with them.  This includes purchases in any of their stores, where the staff will take your avios.com or British Airways Executive Club number and ensure that 4 Avios per £1 are added to your account.

Tyrwhitt is launching some new online discount codes.  From now until 29th August, you can get additional savings on online orders via their site with these codes:

UKSTP5 – £5 off £50

UKSTP10 – £10 off £75

UKSTP15 – £15 off £100

There is a big box marked “Apply an offer code” on the checkout page.

Details of the Avios partnership are on the Tyrwhitt website here.  The shirts included in the current clearance, which are included in this deal, can be found here.

Double Heathrow Rewards points on Apple computing

Heathrow Rewards is offering double points until 30th September when you buy any iMac or Macbook at Dixons Travel.

You can reserve an item in advance – and check prices – via this page of the Heathrow website.  This allows you to make an informed choice in advance of your trip on whether the tax free price is genuinely good value or not.

Heathrow Rewards points convert into Avios, Virgin Flying Club, Emirates Skywards, Etihad Guest and Lufthansa Miles & More at 1:1 – or more if you hold off for a conversion bonus.

    The Avios Iberia Plus deal from Groupon Spain is back:

    I’ve successfully used the 15% discount code VIVEGRPN for new customers.

    And Iberia Plus Store is giving 13 Avios per € 1.

      Good spot, thanks. This is what I normally treat myself to with my Curve Rewards points. Sadly I don’t have enough for €19 this time!

      2000 packs close to selling out.

  • the real harry1 says:

    2000 for £17.24

    take off the 15% £14.68

    £14.68/ 2000 = 0.73p/ point

    sounds ok if I got the math right 🙂

    not much good for higher quantities

    • Peter K says:

      Also every little helps to hit Amex targets, though 3% fee of course.

      • the real harry1 says:

        I think we’d be happy with 0.65p

        remember to go through PayPal for the extra security if something goes wrong

    OT I received an email from Virgin America Elevate today offering 10,000 bonus miles for activating a Mileage Plan account as didn’t have one previously. Could be worth checking for any Elevate members if they got the offer as well as free 10k Alaskan miles!
