As part of #BA100, British Airways will be giving away 5,000 My 1st Years mini backpacks to children passing through Gatwick and Heathrow on selected days during August.

They are quite sweet as you can see below.

My 1st Years British Airways backpack

My 1st Years is also selling them directly to the public.  You get FREE personalisation, up to nine characters, which is a nice touch.  The ones given out in the airports have ‘Mini Adventurer’ on the back (which I know is more than nine characters!).

You can order one for a child in your life via this page of the My 1st Years site.

  1. Discount code EVERYTHING20 will take 5 quid off the backpack

  2. Another OT – Iberia damaged bag

    Iberia seems to offer two choices for damaged bag.
    1. Replace bag
    2. Amazon voucher in lieu

    Any idea what should I select?

    • Shoestring says:

      When BA replace damaged bag you get a nice Samsonite

      ask IB what they’re proposing

      • Alex M says:

        was not samsonite in my case couple years ago – the replacement suitcase was called K9 or smth like that. was not a bad quality though.

  3. LNER/Nectar.

    Recently mentioned on here that Nectar points currently convert at twice the normal rate to LNER vouchers. Terms and conditions indicate can only be used on LNER trains, but is that the reality or can they also be used to book non-LNER trains via the LNER website in your experience?
