Some more Black Friday deals!
Get 50% cash credit at Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts
This is possibly the most original Black Friday deal we’ve covered this year. It is well worth thinking about if you are heading to Asia or the Middle East next year, especially if you have picked up Jade status in Shangri-La Golden Circle as an American Express Platinum benefit.
The deal: Get 50% of the cost of your room back as a credit towards food, beverage and spa purchases during your stay
Rules: Book by 30th November for stays between 1st May and 30th September 2019
Code required: None, but you must be a member of Shangri-La Golden Circle (free to join) and book via this page of the Shangri-La website
BA Holidays £100 discount
We ran a separate article yesterday on the British Airways ‘2 Club World tickets for £2018’ promo which is running over Christmas and New Year.
Separately to that, BA Holidays is also running its own Black Friday bonus. For ‘flight + hotel’ or ‘flight + car ‘ holidays booked for travel between 1st December 2018 and 20 October 2019 you will:
- Save £100 on holidays with a minimum spend of £2,500 per booking
- Save £50 on holidays with a minimum spend of £1,250 per booking
Air New Zealand bargains to Los Angeles
Air New Zealand is selling 100 economy tickets to Los Angeles at 10am today for just £175 return. Dates are limited and, frankly, your chances of getting one are slim but feel free to try.
ANZ will also have special fares in Economy, Premium Economy and Business to Los Angeles throughout today. I don’t know how much they will be, but you will find the details on the Air New Zealand Black Friday page here.
Two special Radisson offers for Black Friday
Radisson is running two interesting offers. First up is a 100% bonus when you buy Radisson Rewards points. The link to buy points is here. The offer runs until 27th November.
The maximum number of points you can purchase is 80,000 (40,000 + 40,000 bonus) for $280. This is £219. The key London hotels such as Park Plaza Westminster Bridge – a modern London property with a pool and next to the London Eye, London Dungeon, London Aquarium etc (photo below) – are 70,000 points per night, so £191. I reviewed the hotel here.
The May Fair (which I reviewed here, and didn’t like much) is also 70,000 points. The new Park Plaza Waterloo is 50,000 points which would be £137, and you don’t get much in London for £130 these days.
At the more prosaic end of the scale, there are various Park Inn budget hotels around the UK for 15,000 points per night. Under this promo, 15,000 points would cost you just £52 based on the pro-rata price of 80,000.
The second Radisson offer is 30% off weekend stays (and all week at Easter) until 31st August 2019. This covers Radisson Collection, Radisson Blu, Radisson RED, Radisson and Park Inn by Radisson hotels in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The Easter period is treated as a full month, from 5th April to 6th May. You can see the list of participating countries on this special Black Friday page of the Radisson website. The last day to book is 27th November.
