    From the Iberia forum on flyertalk, nobody has been able to redeem their coupon/code yet after purchasing, and it appears Groupon have screwed up since last time. Might be worth waiting a few days to see if they fix it first…

    • Delbert says:

      I had the same issue last November. Every time I entered the codes I got an error that the codes had already been used. Left it a few weeks and worked fine.

  • Steve says:

    Just tried to buy some Avios through Groupon it says none are available

  • AriseSirGenghis says:

    OT: Hi all. Have lot of Hilton points and will be in London for 4 days in February. Where would you guys stay? Have tried Park Lane and Conrad before, and thinking to give The Waldorf a try this time for change sake. Is this a mistake? Hoping to have Diamond status for the stay. Any input appreciated.

  • Nick says:

    -Glass of Fizz upon arrival

    Only TWO packages available

    • Chris says:

      I can thoroughly recommend this package. We done it last year when he came to Indigo Glasgow and it was a really good night although we paid cash and I don’t recall it being that expensive.

      He does a talk about his cooking and experiences etc then has a wander round all the tables chatting with everyone, great guy and completely different to how he comes across normally, if Bristol wasn’t so far away I’d be tempted to do it again.

      Some of the new dishes for the forthcoming menu were also showcased at the event for us to try which was really good.

      • Nick says:

        Thanks Chris. I’d take it up too if I was able to get down to Bristol on that date. The hotel looks really nice too, the site history describes it as, “the original house, which forms the central part of the venue, dates back to 1790 where it served as a private residence set within 800 acres of woodland. Between 1839 and 1955 Cadbury House became a school known as St David’s. Later the house evolved into a luxury country club, providing a stunning back drop for hunting balls, medieval banquets and charity events”.

        I may try the hotel out in future if I get down that way, but would also welcome anyone’s views who’ve stayed there.

  • AriseSirGenghis says:

    OT: I have some Hilton points to redeem for a 4-night stay in London. I have booked the Waldorf, but am worried it won’t stack up against previous stays at the Conrad and Park Lane Hilton. What do you guys think? Input appreciated (P.S am Gold, hoping but hope to have Platinum status for this stay through status match).

    • Nick says:

      Personally I love the Hilton Waldorf, but remember it’s not a Waldorf Astoria property. The hotel bedrooms was refurbished a few years ago and are now pretty similar in design, but very functional. I would warn though that the basic “Guest” and “Superior” rooms are pretty small. I would also request a room at the back if you are a light sleeper, as the rooms overlooking Aldwych can be a bit noisy, especially on the lower floors.The location is great though if you want the theatre district/Covent Garden, etc.

  • TheArtistFormelyKnownAsJamesB says:

    Hi everyone. I recently upgraded my Gold Amex card to the Platinum (hit spend target on Gold in one day so upgraded near immediately), and noticed that I haven’t yet been charged yet the £450 annual fee. I have read that some people don’t get charged this fee until the annual anniversary (in my case this would be Jan 2019). Anyone have similar experiences?

    • mark2 says:

      I did the same upgrade; spent the £1,000 on Platinum; moved the points; got the hotel statuses and referred my wife. Then I cancelled and the £450 was never charged. But do remember that you get pro rata refund so you would only pay a few days, although it feels good to pay nothing!

      • Mike says:

        I am just doing exactly the same thing this week ( I do it once a year over a 6 week period ) but this year noticed I had not got the tracker bar on my Plat account showing my progress to the £1000 required spend for the 20K MR bonus – any one else had this issue ?

        • mark2 says:

          My wife’s Gold account has no tracker bar, but they do sometimes appear and disappear at random.

        • Tom1 says:

          I’m exactly the same.
          Tracker bar appeared while gold, but disappeared once I upgraded to plat.
          Should hit plat bonus in next few days so will see what happens then.

    • Alexey says:

      what is a procedure/link to apply for that upgrade and get extra points ?

  • Jen says:

    Can’t get past the enter the codes page? any ideas.
    Input security and coupon codes and email address and tick box them it returns me to the same page.

  • Tony says:

    All a bit odd with Groupon offer… if you go via the Iberia store then the offer is unavailable but if you go directly to Groupon.es it is available to buy. Real shame as it’s 9 Avios per €1 instead of 5.

    • Tony says:

      Ignore that. For some reason the store link was taking me to an expired Avios offer.
