Join me at the Loyalty Summit conference in London next week for 75% off

A lot of big names in the travel loyalty industry (plus me) are speaking at Loyalty Summit at The May Fair hotel next Thursday 19th.

Jeremy Rabe, CEO of Aimia, is probably the biggest draw but there are top loyalty speakers from Accor, Hotels.com, Radisson, Points.com, LNER, Virgin Atlantic, Hertz, Miles & More, Norwegian, Flybe, SAS, Royal Jordanian etc. And Head for Points.

The full schedule is here.  It is a ‘100% Powerpoint free’ conference, focused more on discussions than on presentations. 

I was offered a $199 rate for my staff.  However, as my entire London staff will be off at Virgin’s A350 launch party in New York (as I would be, if I hadn’t agreed to speak here!) the organisers have let me offer the deal to a small number of readers who work in, or are interested in, the loyalty industry.

YOU MUST BOOK TODAY, Friday 13th.  Book a ‘Supplier’ ticket which prices at $799 and use code HFP to reduce it to $199.  If the code does not work then we have reached our cap, but email me and I will see what I can do.

Your ticket also gets you optional free entry to the Frequent Traveler Awards ceremony and gala dinner on Thursday evening, at the same venue.  For $199 for the full programme it is probably cheaper than just going out for dinner and drinks in Mayfair on a Thursday evening!

    How’s the IT on the amex no bonus if you previously had one within 24 months?
    Is it worth putting the required spend through “just in case” there’s some flaky code in there?

    OT – Had a booking to LAX in Club using 2-for-1 and First opened up. Called to upgrade and lady was quite insistent that I had to pay the £35 change fee but I don’t remember ever having to pay this before. Was she right, have things changed?

    • Yes she was right. No, they have not changed.

    • Lady London says:

      Yes you have to pay. Unless it would be impossible for you to do online because of the system not doing it.

      Probably BA also make you pay more of something they will call “taxes” as well as a change fee and more Avios. In actual fact the UK government “tax” and other airport charges/taxes etc., totals exactly the same amount across PY, J and F tickets. However British Airways will want more money from you and most likely will call the extra money “taxes”.

      I called on Monday to do same thing and wasn’t charged, I wasn’t charged when I called in May to
      Change flights either

      • I think the CSA have a lot of discretion and we sometimes get lucky, just one good reason to stay pleasant with them even when we have grounds to be annoyed.

  3. from yesterday – If you collect Virgin Miles, don’t forget to add your credit card to their in store system. 4 Miles per £1 spent at the moment (rebate is targetted). Even on BA Amex!

    How is this done? via waitrose.com or the virgin e-shopping portal?

  4. If you have an RBS Rewards current account they are offering a similar 5% rewards every time you spend £20 or more (and 1% if it’s below £20).
    Offer lasts until 25/09.
