Get a 50% Shangri-La Golden Circle ‘buy points’ bonus

We don’t often write about Shangri-La given its relatively small footprint (101 properties in total). However, the brand does have its own loyalty scheme called Golden Circle, and American Express Platinum gives you free Jade status, so it is worth considering when booking a holiday.

Shangri-La Golden Circle has launched a new points sale. The offer gets you a 50% bonus on points purchased as well as an increase of the annual purchase limit to 20,000 Golden Circle points.

You can buy here. The offer runs to 13th December.

Separately, the company has announced that any points that were due to expire this year have been extended to the end of 2021.
