News in brief:
3,600 Avios with LEGO
As you can see on this page, you will receive 1500 bonus Clubcard points when you spend £75 on LEGO Friends before Sunday. That is worth 3600 Avios or 3750 Virgin Flying Club miles.
Even better, code TDX-YGHR gets you £10 off a £75 Tesco Direct spend. The snag, though, is that you need to spend £75 after the discount to get the 1500 Clubcard points.
The LEGO offer runs until the 19th but the money-off code expires on the 17th.
Non-stop to Jakarta with Garuda
From 31st October Garuda Indonesia’s London – Jakarta flight, which currently routes via Singapore on the return, will become a non-stop service in both directions.
The service will remain a three-class service operated by a B777-300ER flying this route three times a week. Rob reviewed the Business Class seat here, back in the days when the London flight continued to Amsterdam and you could book that leg separately!
Flying Blue 100% ‘buy miles’ bonus
Until 25th September you will get a 100% bonus when purchasing more than 4,000 miles.
Non-elite members can buy up to 75,000 miles per year, Elite members can purchase up to 100,000 per transaction, with no annual cap.
At the top end, buying 100,000 miles with an extra 100,000 will cost €2,750. Even with the 100% bonus this still works out at 1.38 Eurocents per mile which at the current conversion rate (1.24p) is not a massive bargain unless you have a very definite plan for them. If you only want to top up your account, of course, this is a good opportunity to do so.
