Today’s list of deals closing soon is pretty long as it’s almost the end of the month. There are a number of ‘bonuses when purchasing points’ offers closing in the next few days (IHG, BA, Etihad and Hilton).

The higher sign up bonus on both Virgin Atlantic credit cards which ends on 28th February is worth a look and – if you are an HSBC Premier customer – you can get 5,000 bonus miles with the free HSBC Premier Mastercard until 2nd March.

    OT – do reward nights count towards accelerate targets? (And if so, i presume the same applies for point breaks?)

  • Nick says:

    With the intercontinental club rooms offer – does any room that offers lounge access come with breakfast as I’m looking at one in Singapore and the extend a night on us offer just says lounge access but does not say about breakfast as part of the room rate.

    • Andrew M says:

      Only breakfast in the lounge, as far as aware.

    • Rob says:

      You will always get breakfast in the lounge. Some hotels give you the option of also eating breakfast in the main restaurant, with a bigger selection, but this is not common.

      • Nick says:

        Ahh okay thanks will keep this in mind for the future – in the end booked a stay longer pay less rate at InterContinetal Singapore Robertson quay as it included breakfast and some dinning credit (which I never manage to use and didn’t understand if it’s credit per day or for the whole stay?) worked out couple hundred pounds cheaper than the club offer.

  • GRIMZ says:

    OT – I have a friend who had a BA reward flight canceled coming back from Houston, they put him on a flight 9 hours later, is he due any compensation for this?

  • Adam says:

    IHG: FOr those who participated in the UK Luxury night promotion (stay 2 nights at selected hotels, get a free night) – how many days did you have to wait after the points posted to receive your free night certificate? Did it post on the member section on the IHG website or was sent by email – etc?
