News in brief:
Get VIP hospitality to England v Pakistan with Hilton
Hilton Honors is auctioning two VIP packages for the England v Pakistan IT20 cricket game on Tuesday 20th July. This takes place at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester.
The packages include, for two people:
- reserved seating in Stand E
- access to the balcony viewing area
- access to the Century Lounge, including a two-course buffet lunch and complimentary beer, house wine and soft drinks
The current bid is 60,000 Hilton Honors points. I would value 60,000 points at around £200 which makes the deal excellent value, although I would expect the auction to push the price higher.
You can bid here.
The reason that Hilton gets access to these packages is because the big red building below overlooking the ground is a Hilton Garden Inn hotel.

Get €60,000 cashback with American Express …..
If we’re honest, any French holders of American Express cards will be laughing at les rosbifs and their paltry £200 cashback deal with easyJet Holidays.
In France, they like to go big.
This deal is currently available to American Express Platinum cardholders in France (thanks to Pascal for sending it over):
