News in brief:

See an exclusive Bastille gig in London with Hilton Honors

Following the success of the One Republic concert at Abbey Road Studios last year, Hilton Honors has arranged another exclusive London gig for its members.

Bastille will be playing at LSO St Luke’s on Old Street on Saturday 9th June at 7pm.

Packages include two tickets and a food and drink reception beforehand.  This package gets you two tickets for 55,000 Hilton Honors points.  If you need somewhere to stay, this package gets you two tickets plus a night at the DoubleTree Islington hotel for 115,000 points.

One Republic was an excellent night – the global head of Hilton Honors had even flown over for the event.  This one will hopefully be as good, and we will try to get along.

300 free Flying Blue miles from Opinion Rewards Club

I’m sure this isn’t a new offer but I hadn’t seen if before until a reader flagged it.  Opinion Rewards Club is a ‘points for surveys’ scheme run by the Air France / KLM Flying Blue scheme.

Whilst I know some people love them, I usually find ‘points for surveys’ sites to be a bad deal long term due to the time it takes up.  However … they are usually worth joining for the sign-up bonus.

Opinion Rewards Club offers 300 Flying Blue miles when you sign up and complete your first survey.  You need to be a UK / US / France / German / Netherlands resident to join.  Future surveys earn ‘a minimum of 10 miles’ which – assuming you value those at 10p – is a pretty poor use of your time by any standards …..

    On topic query:

    My transfer from MR took about 12 hours too long and I missed the boat on these Bastille tickets. However, the site says ‘These presale tickets won’t last for long, so grab yours before prices go up on May 3rd.’ – does anyone know/have any experience as to how much the price will go up on May 3, assuming that they will be offering a second tranche of tickets? I’d like to get my MR transfer done in advance….


    • Last year One Republic was 60k. I am GUESSING that more tickets at 60k will appear later in the week. This is a genuine guess and I have no info.

      • Stewart says:

        Thanks Rob – that’s good enough for me (and appreciate your honesty). Will move another 5k MR across to be ready.

      • Stewart says:

        60k each it was – thanks for the advice Rob, MRs transferred in advance and tickets booked.

  2. Matthew says:

    I’ve booked tickets. Didn’t go to one republic so really looking forward to this. Perhaps a little HFP gathering is in order?

    • There will be 200 people there, I guess, but if you can track us down then please say Hi. I can introduce you to the top Hilton bods too. Lauren who posts all the Hilton stuff on Flyertalk will be there, not sure if Weinstein is coming this time.
