News in brief:
Marriott launches ‘Welcome Back’ hotel offers
Marriott is offering ‘Welcome Back’ deals across its European and Middle East hotels. Full details are on this page of the Marriott website – note that promo code ‘EZR’ is required (and is automatically added).
As long as you are a Marriott Bonvoy member – and it’s free to sign up here – you will receive a 25% discount on the Best Flexible Rate and free breakfast.
As an example, taking the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh for a random Friday in August, the price under this offer is £142 with breakfast. This compares to a standard room-only rate of £185.
The offer is valid for stays until 30th September.
Full details are on the Marriott site here – the page focuses on the UK and Ireland but you search across EMEA.
I sold my Dell stuff …..
Finally, a quick update for everyone who read my article last Monday about how I am trying to cash in on the American Express Business Platinum ‘£150 cashback with Dell’ offer.
My Dell D3100 thingy (still not sure what it does ….) sold after four days on eBay for the ‘buy it now’ price of £99 plus £5 postage. The actual cost to send it by Royal Mail First Class turned out to be £5.57.
My net profit, after fees, will be around £85 – £90 for a very modest amount of work. My eBay listing is here (click ‘View Original Item’ at the top) if you want to clone it.
