News in brief:
Groupon deal: 75% off your first mytaxi ride
Yesterday we wrote about a 50% offer for customers using the mytaxi black cab app to get to or from one of the London airports. This offer is still running until 30th September.
In addition there is a great deal on Groupon at the moment from mytaxi. For £5, new customers can get £20 of mytaxi credit.
The small print states that the credit expires on 31st July 2018 and is limited to one code per person. You can, however, buy a further 10 as gifts. The credit is used in full against your first ride so be careful – you won’t get the full £20 of value if you use it for a short ride.
The Groupon deal is here. It isn’t clear if you can use the credit alongside the 50% discount on trips to London airports that we wrote about yesterday, but if you can then this is a real bargain.
6,000 Lufthansa miles with a hotel booking
My wife and I took advantage of the previous version of this offer in Innsbruck last week. With the only chain property of note (a Hilton) having poor feedback, we booked into an independent property. Our two connecting rooms for the four of us netted 6,300 Miles & More miles each.
The latest iteration of the promotion works like this:
Guaranteed 1,000 miles minimum per booking as base mileage
1,000 bonus miles if you booking costs up to €249
5,000 bonus miles if your booking costs €250+
This guarantees you at least 6,000 miles for a €250+ hotel. You need to book by 30th August and be a first-time user of the new Miles & More Hotels site. The stay can be for any future date. We received our miles three days after checking out.
Miles & More miles are a little tricky to earn in the UK, and the opportunity to earn at least £60-worth of miles is attractive.
You must book via this webpage to see the bonus offer. These will be treated as third party bookings so you won’t earn any hotel points on top if you pick a branded hotel.
