Virgin Red

Get some cheap bottles of wine

Offer

Virgin Red has discounted the cost of a 12-bottle mixed case of wine from 20,000 Virgin Points to 15,500.

Order by

The offer runs until 12th December.

If you assume that the standard Virgin Points valuation of 0.5p when spent at Virgin Wines also applies here, you are effectively getting 0.65p per Virgin Point with this deal.  It’s still not great but if you only have a small Virgin Points balance I doubt you’ll get much better.

  • ChrisC says:

    IHG is a bit meh in the offer department

    Have already got better rates than under this offer.

    Advance saver requires a deposit and cancel 7 days before the stay.

    Hoping any extra points offer that may appear on Monday / Tuesday makes (re) booking worthwhile.

  • Dubious says:

    The Singapore Airlines flight from Manchester to Houston is not just direct, it is also non-stop…

  • Shaw west says:

    But The REAL DEAL for black Friday goes to Ryan Air for their BOGOF offer. Now that’s a deal!

  • Rui N. says:

    So, no deal for Economist print edition? Meh. Will wait for avios deal then.

    • ChrisC says:

      Rob and Rhys can’t publicise every offer. I wonder even if the economist emailed them details?

      If you want to see what a particular company may be offering I’d be checking their websites directly not relying on someone else.

      • Rui N. says:

        I’ve checked, my comment was not because it’s not listed here. Only deal is for digital subscriptions.

  • Richmond_Surrey says:

    Norwegian prices are higher than week ago. I checked Gatwick to Tromso. Discount, if it even exists, is probably on some niche flights and hours.

  • Niall says:

    No sign of Melia points discount on any European Amazon. Looks like they’ve decided to stop doing that deal.

    • PM says:

      Some people who purchased their points this way had their accounts compromised, e-mail addresses changed within a profile and points redeemed for e-giftcards.

      This is costly to reimburse the points, investigate every case, risk story gets more momentum and hits media under “data breach” or “hacking” banners. You also end up with frustrated customers who need to navigate Melia’s customer service departments. I think this is the main reason they are scaling down these points selling promotions, simply too much fraudulent leakage.

      • Niall says:

        Seems an odd choice to scale down the gift cards for this reason instead of investigating the cause.

        Having bought and redeemed these gift cards in the past I’m wondering what part of this process could/would make your Melia account vulnerable to compromise.

        Email address change in Melia now can only be done by emailing a special email address from your original email, so really have to wonder how someone could do that without gaining access to your email account.

        • PM says:

          I guess e-mail changing option authorisation from the source, and two factor text message authentication for other operations have been introduced as a direct response to this issue.

          I am not sure if vulnerability is fully dealt with as the loyalty system is interfaced with other systems at corporate and property level. Surely a lot of staff, contractors and so on, would still have access and possibly rights to amend data. The speed in which stolen points are reinstated and the fact there is no challenge over a customer’s negligence make me think there is more to it then just phishing or password recycling.

          We won’t know much though until there is critical mass of affected customers.

          • Niall says:

            Definitely Meliá are weak in this respect. The hotel check in staff I have experienced have the ability to change data they shouldn’t. Multiple times I have logged in to see my name changed and once to a whole set of someone else’s passport information.

            Shame to see this offer gone though and not even just replaced with an offer on points purchases directly on their site.

  • TJones says:

    20% extra added to Accor ALL gift cards. Ends at midnight on Monday November 29th.

    • Guernsey Globetrotter says:

      Not a bad discount if you can use them but that is the risk – strict one year expiry and in my experience no flexibility from Accor. Last year I purchased some expecting to use at the LHR and/or LGW Sofitels – instead for most of the year they were unavailable as being used for quarantine hotels. When I pointed out to Accor that they had been on the list but were not available and so I wanted a refund they just suggested I book another hotel… is it really worth the risk for an effective 16.66% discount?

  • Al says:

    The Air France/KLM £50 deal was limited to the first 200 people. That limit has been hit and the code no longer seems to work.

    • Jan de W says:

      Yes, just trying to book KLM now (Sat 27 Nov 12.50) and the TICKETUK50 code is inoperative…
