News in brief:
Get a 10% bonus on Lastminute.com gift cards
Lastminute.com is the latest company to try to bring in some much needed revenue by selling gift cards with a bonus.
Until 30th June, you will receive a 10% bonus on the purchase of any £50, £100, £200 or £300 Lastminute.com gift card.
These can be used against future flight, hotel or ‘flight and hotel’ bookings. The gift cards are valid for two years.
You can find out more on this page of the Lastminute.com website.
Get 500 bonus Accor points for UK hotel stays
Accor Hotels, which own Novotel / Ibis / Mercure / M Gallery / Sofitel / Pullman / Raffles / Swissotel / Fairmont etc has launched a new offer for stays in the UK and selected parts of Europe.
Stays in the UK plus Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Sweden are eligible. The registration page focuses on the UK but it is actually valid in all six countries listed.
You MUST book a ‘Flexible’ rate to earn the bonus – although I doubt you’d want to risk booking non-flexible rates at the moment anyway.
You will earn 500 bonus points on each stay. This is not bad given that each point is worth 2 Eurocents if you redeem for Accor vouchers. This means that you would get €10 of points back in per stay on top of your base points. Our full article on what we think Accor Live Limitless points are worth is here.
500 Accor points is also worth 500 Avios if you convert them to Iberia Plus (but only 250 Avios if you convert to BA Executive Club!).
You must book and stay between 8th June and 31st August.
You MUST register via this special page on the Accor website BEFORE you book. Existing bookings will not count.
