    OT for those who like to try something a bit different, sea planes may start operations from July this year between Guernsey and Jersey.

      Ohhhhh now that sounds like fun!

      And possibly a chunk cheaper than Trans Maldivian costs to the Conrad 😮

    Just want to say thank you to Rob and Anika and all the comment contributors.

    Having been following this website for about 18 months, today is my first proper redemption. I have seen a few grumbles in the comments about how the process is getting harder or less rewarding, but having started 18 months ago, I have lined up for this year:
    Club World to the far east today
    First to the USA later in the year
    A marriott booking which was 30000 Marriott points instead of 350 pounds. (high demand day because of a concert)

    For someone who is well north of 6 foot, I probably would pay for business class tickets, so that indeed is a real saving and results in me going on more holidays.

    Plus so far I have saved over 1000 GBP in other stuff, mainly amex offers/ shop small + the odd amazon order and Uber offer. I didn’t do any of that before. (Off course add back in the cost of my cards which have totalled so far about 600 pounds,

    My highlight was asking the man in Tesco if there was a limit on the number of gift cards I could buy about 18 months ago, him saying no, then returning 10 minutes later with SIXTY 50gbp john lewis gift cards (I had just moved house). He was very suspicious about a stolen credit card etc, but still put it through.

    Anyway thank you again very much,
