    Supposed to be a 50 bonus Clubcard points voucher in the latest esso magazine for purchases of the highlighted fuel, so double points and extra 50 PTS.

    • Rob says:

      There is – we’ve tried to find one but can’t, although it is in the online version. Not sure if that is accepted.

      • Peter K says:

        It’s a rubbish offer. You have to buy at least 20l of esso supreme fuel to get the bonus. Not worth it unless you were going to buy it anyway imo.

  • Shanagarry says:

    Yes, I’ve used it (the pay version) a few times for extra carry on – check the wheelie case (no weight limit) and carry on a large handbag/husband brings a camera bag without any issues.

  • TimM says:

    easyJet have the most generous hand baggage allowance in the business. The main bag is the same size as BA, 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, but with no weight limit plus, for ‘hands free’ customers, a second bag 45cm x 36cm x 20cm, again with no weight limit. The main advantage of checking-in your cabin baggage is liquids! You can pack all your toiletries etc. without the security restrictions and use the second bag for laptop and valuables.

    Anyone like me who has developed many strategies over the years for travelling hand-luggage only with an ‘infinite wardrobe’ appreciate easyJet’s cabin baggage allowance. The ability to check in the main bag for £5 (was £4 when introduced) is the icing on the cake.

    I am with 3 mobile but sadly the promotion does not extend to PAYG customers.
