Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Win 20,000 Avios with SeatSpy

A few weeks ago we wrote how SeatSpy, the new tool to search for reward availability on British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Air France and KLM was moving out of beta.

SeatSpy is by far the easiest way of seeing Avios and Virgin Atlantic reward seats across an entire year without having to search for dates individually.  It is the only service of its type with Virgin Atlantic availability since Reward Flight Finder lost access.

Win 20,000 Avios

SeatSpy has launched a competition for anyone who registers for a Premium or First Class subscription before 26th May.  Existing Premium and First Class subscribers will automatically be entered into the draw.

The first prize is 20,000 Avios.  There are five runner-up prizes of a one year First Class subscription.

The ‘Premium’ tier is currently FREE for the first three months as you can see from the new pricing matrix below.  We have written confirmation from SeatSpy that people on the free trial are included in the competition, so you can enter without spending anything.

You can sign up for the competition here.

The closing date is 26th May, which is also – not coincidentally – the last day to lock in the heavily discounted ‘founder’ pricing for the Premium and First Class tiers.
