    Re the wine offer there are also cases of red and and a white case available as well.

  • Dilbert says:

    I used the last Marriott Homes and villas offer to book a villa for our Orlando holiday this summer. Got an email last week out of the blue to say they were cancelling my booking because they have decided to no longer work with the rental company.
    Their customer service has been awful, basically a shrug of shoulders and refund. Now shopping for an alternative with 4 months to go, but prices have shot up. Won’t be using them again.

    • Will says:

      Was it full pre pay no cancellations on your side?
      I have a real problem with that when cancellations are asymmetric.

    • ankomonkey says:

      I had a fairly similar experience with Vrbo. I asked them find me an equivalent property and honour the price I paid for the cancelled one and they told me to use their search engine and rejected any type of price matching/honoring. So basically they wanted me to search and re-book as if I’d never booked with them in the first place.

      I find the risk of these single-property booking sites far higher than booking a hotel that has multiple rooms they can put you in.

  • Jack says:

    Previous round of double tier points on Marriott Homes and Villas was a nightmare. Best case scenario was delays of 2 months on crediting the nights, while most of the time had to chase, chase, chase and at the end of the year I given up on some of them. Customer service awful also dealing with issues, as they don’t tKe any responsibility for basic problems (broken doors, no hot water etc).

    It left such a bad taste that this year I didn’t put any night on Marriott at all vs 50+ nights last year.

  • Arch says:

    Wine offer not bad. Face value of bottles £137.88, so at 12k points, you getting 1.15p value per mile. However, given that to existing members Virgin Wines is offering £20 off any case, this reduces to £117.88. Furthermore, as a wine bank member, you get a 20% topup for any deposit, so on the reduced case cost, you’re actually only paying ~£98.23, giving a comparative point redemption value of 0.82p for some people. Still not bad vs economy class redemptions.

    • ianM says:

      You can get a return flight on Delta in the US for 12k Virgin points plus very little tax, which I think is better use?

      • Chrisasaurus says:

        Well yes but getting there isn’t free and it’s an expensive time to be in the US so unless you already had the need then I’d argue a bird in the hand and all that

  • John Flower-Jones says:

    Great offer from Virgin. You haven’t mentioned the Wine Flyer offers at all. Have you seen you can earn 1,500 Avios when you spend £100 …even if you turn that into nothing using points to redeem.

    And also you can earn 2,000 when you spend £80 on your Amex.

    And these offers are additive so you can get 3,500 if you spend £100 in cash on your Amex!!!!
