News in brief:

Get a 75% bonus buying IHG Rewards Club points

IHG Rewards Club has just launched a 75% bonus for buying points.

The link to buy is here.

We saw numerous offers of a 100% bonus during 2020, so I wouldn’t buy speculatively at this price. If you are looking to make a cash booking at the moment, however, it is worth looking at whether buying points for a redemption stay is cheaper.

The 75% bonus runs until 25th February.

Save an extra £50 on Virgin Atlantic Premium

As the Virgin Atlantic sale comes towards an end, it is offering an extra £50 discount on Premium Economy tickets.

The discount is valid on ALL routes for ALL travel dates. The latest generation Premium seat is pictured above.

The extra discount applies to bookings made from today until 1st February. You must use code PRM50 when booking.

How should I pay for my tickets?

To maximise your miles when paying, your best bet is one of the two Virgin Atlantic Reward credit cards.  These earn double miles (3 per £1 on the paid card or 1.5 per £1 on the free card) when you book at or via Virgin Holidays
