Buy Star Alliance Gold from TAP!

TAP Portugal is offering a unique deal. You can buy 132,000 Miles&Go miles AND get six months of Star Alliance Gold status for €718!

We don’t know enough about Miles&Go to say whether 132,000 miles is worth €718 or not, although it is hard to see how it could be a bad deal. You can redeem across all 26 Star Alliance airlines. Just be aware that the miles are drip-fed into your account over 12 months, however.

You really need to do your own research on this one, especially as just six months of Star Gold won’t be hugely useful in the current environment. The offer ends on 30th November.

Amazon

We thought we’d take a quick look at travel essentials on sale at Amazon today:

Bose QuietComfort 35 II, which are pretty much the industry leading noise-cancelling headphones, are reduced 36% to £209.

Apple’s AirPods Pro are also noise cancelling and are down to £199.

If you like reading, you can get a Kindle for £49 (was £69) or the top-of-the-line Kindle Oasis for £169 (was £229).

You can also get 3 months free Amazon Music Unlimited and 2 months free Kindle Unlimited. (Terms apply, not valid to those who have previously had free trials.)

And, if you’re stocking up for Christmas, the Laphroaig Quarter Cask single malt is available for £25, down from £41!

    Sorry- off topic. My wife and I were due to travel to London (INV-LHR) on 21st December, returning on 24 December. The flight on 24 December is been cancelled by BA, and we don`t think that it would be worth going for the short period 21-23 December. What are our rights? Voucher or refund?

  • Gordon Chalker says:

    You are entitled to either as BA cancelled, You will need to ring them to get a full refund, The wait time is a lot better than it was believe me,
    Of you can obtain a future travel voucher via their website.
