Get triple Club Eurostar points – worth a 30% rebate

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

Club Eurostar doesn’t run many promotions, so it was surprising to see them come out with a very impressive offer yesterday.

As it happens, I am in the middle of a Eurostar trip as I write. You’ll be seeing some lounge reviews on HfP over the next few days.

Our overview of Club Eurostar is here.

Club Eurostar triple points

All you need to know is:

  • you earn 1 point per £1 spent
  • there are NO availability restrictions – if a seat is there for cash, you can book it, or upgrade into it, for points

Here’s the new deal.

For all trips booked between 21st September and 5th October, for travel up to 21st March 2022, you will receive:

  • double points for Standard and
  • triple points for Standard Premier

This means that, based on points being worth around 10p, you are getting points worth 20% of what you paid in Standard and an impressive 30% of what you paid in Standard Premier.

Annoyingly I can’t find details of the offer online so you need to trust us. No registration is required.

Remember that, if you have American Express Platinum, you get free access to Eurostar lounges. No guests are allowed but obviously your Platinum supplementary cardholder can come with you.

How to get Club Eurostar points and lounge access from UK credit cards

How to get Club Eurostar points and lounge access from UK credit cards (October 2021)

Club Eurostar does not have a UK credit card.  However, you can earn Club Eurostar points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cardsThese are:

  • American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 2,000 Club Eurostar points. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes. 30,000 points is a limited offer until 9th November 2021.

Membership Rewards points convert at 15:1 into Club Eurostar points which is an attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, so you will get the equivalent of 1 Club Eurostar point for every £15 you spend.

American Express Platinum comes with a great Eurostar benefit – Eurostar lounge access!  

You can enter any Eurostar lounge, irrespective of your ticket type, simply by showing The Platinum Card at the desk.  No guests are allowed but you can get entry for your partner by issuing them with a free supplementary Amex Platinum card on your account.

    My IHG offer is 75%. Not in the market to buy though.

    • Phillip says:

      I got a message in the IHG app saying my bonus is 100% – when I clicked to activate it, it became 75%! With such appalling customer service there’s no way I’ll even bother contacting IHG to question the discrepancy! I’ll wait for the next 100% offer – which I have to say can make some stays so much cheaper!

      • Ed says:

        This was in my email. Are you sure the exact wording ? Didn’t mention “up to?”
        Buy IHG® Rewards points and reveal a mystery bonus of up to 100% more! Plus, you can purchase up to 150,000 bonus points to plan for future travel – now through 8 October.

  • Susan says:

    Annoyingly anyone wanting a eurostar+onwards into France can’t benefit from this offer for much of the period as SNCF won’t be releasing tickets for mid-December onwards travel until 6 October. You’d almost think they’d planned it that way 😉

  • Oli says:

    Are Eurostar currently charging the £32 fee for redemption tickets, which was the basis for the 10p valuation?
    Their website says no:

    • Rob says:

      No, it has been postponed until ‘after Covid’ but I was assuming that day is rapidly approaching.

  • JC says:

    I just don’t get why the Amex Gold has a seemingly better benefit in Deliveroo than the Amex Platinum which costs far more annually. It seems a bit bizarre?

  • KBuffett says:

    It’s worth clarifying that the supplementary AmEx Platinum Charge card holders need to have their card with them to access the lounge.

    The cards are not swiped…..

  • Jan M says:

    Have been using Deliveroo to get some supermarket shopping delivered. Still haven’t found any takeaway near mine that’s worth ordering.

    • Rob says:

      If you need to ask the question you’re missing the point. Deliveroo Groceries is NOT about price, in any sense. It is about convenience. Dija will deliver groceries to my house within 10 minutes of me placing my order. You do it when you’re on the sofa watching a movie, the kids want popcorn and you have no popcorn, or you wake up and you’re out of milk. 10 minutes from pulling out my phone I have my stuff. They are not competing with Waitrose.

      They are semi-competing with Little Waitrose (assuming you live a short walk from one) but actually they are not competing with anything because they are used mainly when the alternative is you simply wouldn’t bother (no popcorn, drink a black coffee etc).

      They will tell you they are creating a new market, in the same way that Deliveroo actually increases the whole food delivery sector because people who may – faced with an empty fridge – have had a bowl of cornflakes for dinner can now very easily order a proper meal.

      • Alex M says:

        If they want pop corn they just need to peel their arses from the sofa and go buy it – surely they are old enough to be able to do it?

        • Rob says:

          But they don’t need to, because technology has provided me with a man, a pushbike and a 10 minute delivery service. That’s progress! And, no, I wouldn’t send my 10 year old to Waitrose at 9pm to buy popcorn ….

        • C says:

          I think the way it used to work is that the 10 year old would send Dad to Waitrose to buy popcorn at 9pm. Instead, Rob (and the rest of us) now have an app to make someone else do it.

          A bit of an aside, but having used it a few times, I have found Gorillas (same concept as Dija, I believe) a good convenience service, when convenience is the key criterion. The Deliveroo groceries interface is very clunky, and the available inventory from my local stores quite haphazard – I think Gorillas (and I would assume Dija, and others) have them beat on that segment.

  • High Grade says:

    Do Amex Buisness Platinum card holders get access to the Eurostar Lounge?

    • Rob says:

      No, oddly.

      • High Grade says:

        Thanks Rob and Simon. It seems there are a few instances where the Amex Business Platinum is not quite as good as the personal card. I thought they would give a bit more as they earn more from the transaction fees.

        • Rob says:

          Bus Plat has better travel insurance and The Times subscription, personal Plat has Eurostar access and the £100 Add Lee credit. That’s about it.

    • Simon says:

      Technically no but I’ve always managed to get in anyway. That said, the cards are also not swiped so I suppose a cancelled personal platinum would also work?

  • Rich says:

    I have to say I was a little underwhelmed by Deliveroo Plus. A pretty high spend target to get what is often 99p worth of delivery.

    Certainly not something I would pat a subscription for. Must remember to cancel in a year!

    They do promise ‘special offers’ too.
