  1. OT – 10k points from the virgin life insurance offer hit my account last night, time to cancel.

    • Yes, mine too. Weirdly I only know thanks to Awardwallet. When logging in to my account they don’t actually show in the transactions on my account, yet the total went up by 10k!

      Now to figure out how to cancel!

      • See comment from Genghis – VS does weird ordering in their system so if you scroll down to June you should see them. They also posted as 7.5k+2.5k rather than 10k. Agree AwardWallet very handy!

        For cancelling I just cancelled the D/D for now – can call them later if issues but at least that means no more taken. Ended up paying 7 subs as last one came out early, but still worked out at 0.0009 per mile, which is acceptable 😛

  2. Nigel Williams says:

    I’ve been hearing that Amex are classing the Gold Credit and Plat Charge as “differing products” and therefore someone on a Gold credit can apply for the Plat and *still* receive the welcome bonus. I know this breaks the traditional ruleset for Amex, but…

    1. Anyone here done that successfully (Applied for Plat whilst holding Gold credit)?
    2. Any reason to believe it woudlnt work for the opposite (Self-refer for a Gold credit from Plat) to get the gold welcome bonus?

    • Complete rubbish, because the trigger is not the product but whether you have a Membership Rewards account.

      • Nigel Williams says:

        My thoughts – but there are incidents out there on the web of Gold Credit users getting the Plat welcome bonus, as there is no current “upgrade offer” on the credit version of the PRG so they are honouring it.

        TBH the 18K self referral for me is enough, I just need a new Amex bonus to point my sepnding at (since I dont want to churn the Plat)

  3. Henry T says:

    OT – I think I am right that if I hold a platinum card and refer someone and they decide to apply for a different card (say BA, Nectar or SPG), I would still get the 18,000 referral bonus? Please could someone confirm?

    • Genghis says:


      • Henry T says:

        Thanks – and I suspect I know the answer to this, but are you able to refer to yourself…?

        • Steve-B says:

          Technically you can do it. Some have been successful getting the bonus, others have not, but obviously not in the spirit of the offer so entirely at your risk. Anecdotal evidence suggests that Amex are tightening up on this.

        • I’ve had 100% success so far doing approx twice per year.

        • Generally works but don’t go complaining to Amex if it doesn’t!

      • Indeed – I’ve always viewed it as you’re bringing them the business, it’s not your fault if the person taking out the card changes there mind as to which card to opt for.

  4. It was effectively 50% off oyster top-ups last month 😉

    • Not really… I accounted for time and effort (significant, and I didn’t have a free weekend to devote to that) spent chasing (ever fewer) shops that accept topups sometimes at rather crazy conditions (asking for a 3 GBP charge to do a 10 GBP topup just so one can get 5 GBP back…)

  5. James carp says:

    OT: I purchased some tesco Christmas saver and tried the trick of using some to purchase an item and then returned it for a refund into clubcard vouchers, however, they put the refund onto a gift card.
    How does one use this work around to be the refund into points so can purchase avios?
    Any help gratefully appreciated.

    • You took a punt and lost, looks like you gotta cut your losses and do your best with the GC

    • Genghis says:

      From recent reports now not possible. You pay your money and you takes your chances.

      • Lady London says:

        If its any consolation, even our beloved Harry hinted he’d had a glitsch on that one.

    • Scallder says:

      Haven’t used any of mine yet, but reckon I won’t bother trying now. Although between my wife and I the £744 should pay for our petrol for the year.

      • Jeremy I says:

        Ahh a shame – Im in the same boat and will now need to find something to spend the vouchers on… not the end of the world and happy to have taken the risk.

        By the way, on topic, I havent found any ex-ARN destinations on Etihad in business which are as little as 1400 EUR except Delhi. I would be very grateful if anyone could post any decent ex-Scandi Etihad deals they come across. I have found very cheap ex-Bud to Tokyo fares but nothing else.

  6. I think I’ve previously seen comments that if you call Amex to book, then offer won’t trigger, because T&Cs state it needs to be booked online, or something like that.

    Haven’t seen any comments on cumulative spend.

    • AndyGWP says:

      Cummulative spend is confirmed by those who have split the transactions

      Having had difficulty making use of the spend online myself, Amex (and Amex Travel) do insist that the terms state it is on a “single spend” (they don’t but I’m not rocking the boat by making that argument on this particular occasion)

    • Cumulative spend definitely OK – commented a day or so ago that I got the email immediately upon doing my second transaction (a day after the first one) that pushed me over the threshold.

  7. Benylin says:

    OT: Email from BAEC to my parner saying sign up to BA blue amex and get 10,000 pts on £1k spend in 3 months.

  8. Curve – I was charged for my “free” £1000 Amex topup this month. Complaint submitted.

    • the_real_a says:

      Who charged you? Did you receive a cash advance fee from AMEX?

    • Just to clarify – you’d waited for 31 calendar day since your last 1000 topup, topped up on or after the 32nd, and were charged the 0.65% fee?

      • 30 days. But only waited 10 days between Nov and Dec topups and was not charged. Also (as with previous topups) it confirmed there was no fee for £1000 and there would be a 33p fee for £1050, but pending charge on Amex now says £1006.50

        • I think they’ve had issues with the spend calculator and also think the second fee free topup was a happy fluke.

    • 30 days exactly this time, but previous times were 30 Nov and 11 Dec and was not charged.

      There is a sort of “tracker” though. On 9 Jan app said there would be a fee for any amount then on 10 Jan £1000 became free again, so I pressed the button but was still charged.

  9. O/T Following-on from Rob’s recent Wyndam status-match article, I did my Wyndham status match from IHG Spire Elite at the end of Dec and have just cross-matched to Caesar’s Total Rewards to get Platinum status until Jan 2020 (no resort fee’s, $100 dining credit, 2 x free tickets to certain shows each month, priority lanes, free upgrades, free valet parking, comp rooms etc…and also free 4 night stay at Atlantic Bahamas (just pay resort fees).

    Have a Vegas trip booked for Feb so will report-back how much value I squeezed out of this!

    Btw, link to match your status is here:

    • Mentioned yesterday but I think you may have to match again after 31st January as you will drop back down.. status seems to go 31st Jan to 31st Jan regardless when you hit.. hopefully it will last til next year but I emailed and asked and they said this year.

      • Thought the same ref the date but checked some Flyertalk forum posts and they were saying status matching in Jan gave you a whole year which is what I have…Diamond until Jan 31st 2020.

        • Steve S says:

          Me too.
          MY TR
          UNTIL January 31st, 2020

          Still trying to find the 2 free nights offer in Dubai that seems to have disappeared

  10. OT: Can I book LATAM flights through ba.com?

  11. Damn it! Just booked a Eurowings flight to go to Cologne for a wedding in July, on Wednesday!
