    “Club World Cup” 🤭

    • The Original David says:

      What even is the Club World Cup? Is this the normal football world cup with a new title sponsor? Genuinely confused…

      • John Matrix says:

        Google

        • The Original David says:

          … is blocked in certain jurisdictions, but thanks anyway.

          • John Matrix says:

            Not in yours though right

          • The Original David says:

            Err, yes actually, that was my point. The authorities here haven’t taken issue with HfP’s editorial agenda (yet!), so it’s a lot easier to access HfP than Google.

          • John says:

            “google” just means do a search. Presumably there are other search engines that are not blocked in your current location. Try duckduckgo or startpage first

      • Graeme says:

        It’s a completely pointless event where the winners of the different Champions League-type competitions from each confederation (European, South American, Asian etc) play each other for a cup that no-one cares about (except FIFA execs on their jollies, TV people and the host nation)

        *old joke alert*

        I’d want a lot more than £472 to go to that.

  • James says:

    Everytime I took a look at the ebooks the selection available was pretty dreadful. I did download a couple and they were not especially good books !
    It really was not a worthwhile benefit or a good advert for kindle ebooks !!

    • Stephen C says:

      Last quarter I picked the ones that looked the most interesting, turns out they were the same ones I downloaded the quarter before so lost the benefit…

    • Mark says:

      Absolutely agree. I never managed to find one single title that I wanted to download. I’d almost consider it a true enhancement as it was a pitiful selection anyway.

    • Peter K says:

      Lots are novellas as well, or part 1 of a series. Waste of space so no wonder they got rid of them!

  • filipino_chino says:

    If you want to go to a match in Doha – it might be worth booking a flight with a long stop over… I selected short stop overs for a higher price, but i still paid less than these direct flights…

    Cardiff to HKG for me on the 16th of December

  • John says:

    OT/ but as it’s Bits…

    Sitting on Eurostar, just noticed that the Eurostar app, which previously said I’d exceeded required points for retaining Carte Blanche (1800), now says I need the 2400, fortunately not an issue as it’s months before my membership year ends

    But in Eurostar’s blurb it wasn’t clear (to me at least) if hitting the old target pre-change would qualify, i.e. like BAEC renewal tripping as soon as the required tier points are there, seems it doesn’t

    • Rob says:

      That seems to be the case. I am VERY surprised by this, since they have pulled the rug from under people. I get a feeling if you complain they will ensure you are rolled over but it is a bad way to approach things.

      • Ss says:

        My membership year resets in November and they told me by live chat on two separate occasions that as long as I hit 1800 before 23 Oct, I would renew my status for the following year.

      • Lady London says:

        Eurostar has ‘form’ for changing t’s and c’s retroactively. Last time IIRC they refused to apply the original conditions even when I complained. Very unfair, and almost certainly illegal for them to do that.

  • Trevor says:

    Thanks Rob, never even realised about the Kindle offer. Downloaded one and my wife will tonight. Cheers!

  • meta says:

    O/T Hilton offer appeared on several of my Amex. Spend £250 get £50 back. Same as earlier this year and only at select Hilton properties in Europe. Pay on check out.

    • John says:

      Got that, also morrisons 10%

      • David D says:

        Should be on cumulative spend and valid on pre-pay rates like all the previous Hilton offers.

      • Paul Pogba says:

        Does the Morrison offer work at the petrol station?

    • MattB says:

      10% off min £30 spend Morrisons offer which ended yesterday back on some cards

      • TGLoyalty says:

        Yep got 10% on SPG and 7% on Gold. How’s that make sense.

        Anyway topping up on Amazon before Xmas.

        • Doug M says:

          Morrisons. I had 10% back on SPG, nothing on Gold and Plat. Then today a new offer on Plat for 10% back. Really odd. All I buy in Morrisons is gift vouchers for Amazon, M&S and JLP for Waitrose. Lot of trouble tracking down £50 vouchers and have had seemingly random issues with not letting me buy more than x vouchers. If you use the self checkout they don’t weigh enough to work, and it being Morrisons they have to reset the till each time, can’t seemingly disable it for whole shop the way other supermarkets do. If go to the proper tills they seem to have issues processing more than about 4 to 6 vouchers before they till insists no more can be purchased.
          Amex offers so random, Waitrose 5% back on £30+ on SPG, but 4% back on £75+ on Plat. SPG is absolutely my most used card, but you think they’d push you towards Plat given that has to be the one they’d want me to retain. Wonder if just having the Plat enhances the offers on the other cards. All my cards on a single Amex account, although it does have two MR accounts attached, Plat and Gold separately, I thought it was only supposed to be one.

          • John says:

            Well just go over and over again, it’s only a problem if the offer is once off

    • Stu N says:

      Good spot, thanks – have this x2 and I can definitely use this. The offers have been pretty strong for me recently, £50 at Marriott as well.

  • Harry T says:

    OT Amex offers:
    New Hilton offer on several MR cards: spend 250£ get 50£.

    There’s also a new Ted Baker offer and the Morrison’s offer has returned.

  • Cal says:

    OT Just passed the £10k spend on the Barclaycard Hilton, any idea of how long it takes to get Hold?

    • happeemonkee says:

      Not sure of the answer to that but didn’t there used to be a way of extending Hilton Diamond status by spending over £10k on the Barclaycard Hilton or have I just imagined it?

    • RussellH says:

      Me too.

      Last year I had to argue the toss with Barclaycard for a couple of weeks – they seemed unable to add up, but refused to try and justify their calculation…

      I shall give them a couple of weeks before I chase them this time, as there is still two months to go.
