citizenM sale now on

We don’t cover citizenM hotels much on Head for Points, since they don’t offer a loyalty programme or miles in any airline scheme.

The chain is growing strongly, however, and it now has 20 hotels including three in London and one in Glasgow.

Those who use it seem to have a level of enthusiasm which is rare amongst hotel brands. We reviewed citizenM New York Times Square as part of our ‘My Favourite Hotels’ series last year.

citizenM is running a short sale. It started yesterday and ends on 7th April.

They have kept it simple:

  • all rooms are discounted by 25% from the standard rate
  • you can cancel until 2pm on the day of arrival

You can find out more on the citizenM website here.

Dell discounts for Amex Business cardholders

If you have an American Express Business Platinum card, you receive a £75 cashback credit every half year for Dell. Business Gold cardholders get a £50 credit.

You may also have a 10% Dell cashback offer showing on your card at the moment.

If you do, you might be interested to know that Dell is offering 14% off a number of laptops this week. The deals end on Thursday.

The discount would stack with the £50 Gold / £75 Platinum Amex Business cashback and the additional 10% cashback offer if your Amex card has that.

The sale page on the Dell small business website is here.

    There are various 20% codes for Inspiron, XPS and AW floating around atm, not stackable with 14%, but will stack with the amex offers.

      Good call – Used a 20% code last night to get a convertible laptop for £799, less the £100 off £750 Amex offer makes it £699. Due to arrive tomorrow so very fast shipping.

  • Anon says:

    Any other codes for virgin atlantic?

  • SammyJ says:

    Virgin may have a fairly generous voluntary cancellation policy, but when they cancel a flight they won’t move it to another date unless you pay fare differences, which goes against everything in their T&Cs

    • Anna says:

      Not to mention the law …

    • David says:

      Impossible to get anything back from Virgin totally disgusting way that they have dealt with there customers during the present covid crisis. No matter how much discount do not bother

  • ChrisC says:

    Citizen M offer is for stays until 31st August.

    You need to create / be logged into your account for the discounted rates to show,

    Having recent purchased an Apple Macbook, I had no need for a Dell laptop. What I did need was a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. My ageing iMac keyboard and mouse needed constant new batteries. I bought the Dell Premier Keyboard and Mouse, priced at around £70 (inc VAT). Free shipping. I just wanted to make sure I made use of the Amex Business £75 credit. Dell were quick and it arrived two days later. The £70 credit was applied to my Amex account the following day. And I still have about £5 left, in case I want to buy another small item. In July I get the other half of the yearly credit – another £75. I may well get another keyboard and mouse.

    “For travel before end of July”
    I like their optimism, but personally can’t see it happening, and a token £30 off already high prices to the States, doesn’t tempt me.

  • AnotherUser says:

    CitizenM prices are higher now than when I booked presale! Looks like more dynamic pricing, though, so there may be better deals for some times

  • Matt B says:

    Oooh a VS discount; but still stupidly high fuel surcharges….
