A month ago we wrote about an offer of 100 free Shangri-La Golden Circle points for downloading their new app.
This was actually a two-part offer. To be honest, until a reader flagged it with us, I hadn’t realised how generous the rest of the deal could be. As well as 100 points for downloading the app and logging in, you will get:
- Double Golden Circle points when booking via the app
- Triple Golden Circle points when booking via the app and using mobile check-in or check-out
Triple Golden Circle points is a great deal. The standard earning rate is 1 point per $1 spent but this would increase to 3 points per $1 under this promotion, plus any status bonus. Taking the food and drink redemptions as an example, 1000 points gets you a $100 voucher. This means that you are getting a 30% rebate on your spending via that route.
The idea of spending $1,000 of company money at a Shangri-La in Asia and receiving a $300 food and drink voucher for the Shangri-La in The Shard in London is certainly attractive ……
