Save 50% buying Qatar Privilege Club miles – today only

It is also worth mentioning briefly that Qatar is running a 50% off flash sale when you buy Qmiles TODAY (Tuesday).

Qatar made substantial changes to Privilege Club recently which sharply reduced the number of Qmiles needed for flights, effectively reversing the huge devaluation of a couple of years ago. If you have some Qmiles sitting around, they may now be worth something.

You can buy Qmiles here.

PS. Were you our crockery winner?

Thank you to everyone who entered our competition last week to win a selection of British Airways First Class crockery which we picked up from the infamous online sale last month.

The winner was Matthew B – well done! Rhys has already been in touch with Matthew, so if you are a Matthew B as well then it wasn’t you, sadly.

Rhys was solely responsible for packing up your prize and delivering it to the Post Office, so if it doesn’t arrive in one piece don’t blame me 🙂
