No 1 Lounges has launched a Christmas offer, with up to 30% discount on lounge passes.  You can buy here.

There are two options:

you can buy a pass for a specific lounge, if you know where you will flying from, for up to 30% discount, or

you can buy a £20 or £50 gift voucher at up to 30% discount which can be redeemed against any lounge booking

Vouchers can be used until 31st December 2020 so you shouldn’t have any trouble using them.  Note that the £20 and £50 vouchers must be used in one transaction, so you should only buy these if you are likely to be travelling with other people.

Whilst this offer is presented as a gifting offer, you are free to buy vouchers for yourself and save up to 30% on your No 1 Lounge, My Lounge and Clubrooms visits next year.

The offer runs until 26th December and you can buy here.  If it asks for a code, use GIFT2019.

    I’d bid on a M&G with Tony Hadley, but on 13 December, I’ll be sleeping off the effects of a long, cold day in the village hall.

      Thankfully I will be out of the country and hopefully under the influence of mulled wine for the 4 days prior to the election!

        Lucky you, I used to be fascinated by politics but now I’m so utterly disgusted by both the politics and the media that I’ve stopped watching the news and ignore all coverage online.

          +1. Everybody I know seems to have stopped watching anything since May of this year.

        IS there an election ?

  • Anna says:

    I haven’t had a survey from Curve but I have been invited to join “Curve Experts”. I’m pretty sure they don’t really want my Curve expertise though!

    • stevenhp1987 says:

      Applied online and they wanted us to go in branch to verify salaries etc. Went in branch and told that we need to book an appointment.

      Next available appointment? Early December. Told them I won’t bother.

      Poorly run promotion.
