Today’s list has a couple of decent flight sales including an exceptional sale business and first class sale with Lufthansa and Swiss to Africa, the Middle East and Asia (closing today!). The 24th is the last day to enter the Hilton luxury London weekend break competition which is open to everyone and free to enter (enter here).

The next two weeks also see the closing of a variety of miles and points purchasing bonuses, including Avios (Tuesday), Etihad Guest and Hilton Honors.

The end of May is also your deadline for purchasing physical goods with your American Express Membership Rewards (although this is not usually worth it unless you are Avios-rich and don’t have anything better to spend them on – you’re not missing out when this goes!) as well as the last opportunity to secure a free upgrade to first on British Airways from Club World on fully flex Business Class tickets.

    26th May is the last date to register and book Emirates F or J flights with triple Skywards Miles awarded for the trip. Might be targeted because a colleague told me that they have not had this offer.

    The BA Sale has flights from London to Cancun for £1,600 return in January. Any idea if this is a good price? I usually manage to get reward seats (thanks to this site) so not familiar with usual cash prices. Thanks.

  • Robert says:

    Are there any cheap tier point runs left in the BA sale?

    Is the link to this article correct? ‘Last day to get double Virgin miles and a discount at No.1 Lounges. Article.’
