LIMITED OFFER: Get £20 back on easyJet bookings with Mastercard

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Until 9am on Thursday, Mastercard is offering £20 cashback for new easyJet bookings of £100 or more.

The offer is valid on ALL flights until 26th March 2022.

easyJet released its new 2021/2022 winter schedule yesterday, so you can now book for Spring 2022 ski and snowboard trips.

All fares are covered by easyJet’s Flex policy. This means that you can change your travel date until 14 days before departure, although you will be on the hook for any difference in fare for your new date.

Unfortunately this offer is only valid on NEW bookings and not in conjunction with easyJet vouchers from previously cancelled flights. This is a bit of a pain as I imagine a lot of readers will have these.

How does the easyJet / Mastercard £20 cashback deal work?

You must pay for your flights in GBP using a Mastercard. It will not trigger on flights priced in Euro or other currencies, even if the total is the equivalent of £100+.

Both debit and credit Mastercards will count. It isn’t clear if cards issued outside the UK qualify.

The offer isn’t stackable (you won’t get £60 back on a £300 booking) but you can use it multiple times. You can make multiple bookings of £100+ with the same Mastercard and receive £20 back on each.

The offer is limited to the first 8,000 bookings. We will update this page if easyJet tells us they are close to the 8,000 bookings although they were confident that it will be enough to go around. That said, if you are reading this via the daily emails you may want to click through to the article on the HfP website to check for any changes.

You can book on the easyJet homepage here.

    Will this work with my curve card?

  • Ben says:

    Booked a £100+ ticket just now on a MasterCard. Is there any way to tell that it triggered?

  • AJ says:

    Would this work if you pay £100 off the balance of an Easyjet Holidays booking?

  • David says:

    8,000 won’t last long.
    Not good you don’t know if you have got it before you pay.

  • Matthew says:

    No need to register? Just pay by MasterCard and hope £20 appears?!

  • S Harkess says:

    I did this with the last Easy Jet Mastercard offer, the payment went through for the full amount with no £20 deduction or warning that the offer has now reached capacity. When I contacted Easy Jet to ask them at what stage I would receive the £20, their response was that, if I had been successful it would be returned to my account at some point! Essentially it’s potluck. I personally think that’s sneaky and underhanded move of Easy Jets to advertise this offer then charge the full amount with no indication if you’ve actually qualified.

    • Lady London says:

      Hmmmm I wonder if a regulator would be interested in this. From the point of viee of the purchaser it’s a lottery for which Easyjet doest have a lottery licence, or a promise that isn’t fufilled.

      Easy enough for them to put a counter on their system that counts or feeds back number of £100+ payments made by Mastercard and trigger a warning display to users on their website.

      If they’re not making an attempt to advise users the provision of the offer is exhausted this would almost make one think the cap has been set up so Easyjet/Mastercard can profit from this ‘breakage’. Shurely not.

  • Matthew says:

    Booked – let’s hope it works!

  • ankomonkey says:

    I booked flights with Easyjet last night (unaware of this offer so paid with Amex). What I did notice was that a 23kg checked suitcase was only £14 each way, which was a lot lower than I was expecting, although it’s years since I’ve flown Easyjet. The flight is over 4 hours. At £28/case/roundtrip I treated myself to 2 cases! #PremierLiving 😉

    • Matthew says:

      The pricing for checked baggage is dynamic depending on season and the route. Mine for example is £25.99 ew (for Crete in half term)

      • Lady London says:

        And it ratchets higher, the closer to the flight date, often by quite a high amount.

      • ankomonkey says:

        Interesting. I thought it was a flat fee of around £50 one-way, varying slightly by route (probably higher on bucket & spade routes where chances are higher of people wanting checked luggage).

        For once, it seems I’ve struck gold. Just watch as the flight gets cancelled!

    • Peekay says:

      May I ask which route/date you saw the £14 checked bag? I haven’t seen the 23kg bag for less than £20.99 in a while.
