News in brief:
Get 8,000 Virgin Points with a Tesco Mobile deal
We don’t cover many Tesco Clubcard deals these days, because the company decided a few years ago to focus on lower prices rather than bonus points as the best means of driving sales.
Tesco Mobile is dipping its toe back into the water, however.
With a Black Friday deal, already live, you will receive 4,000 Tesco Clubcard points with a 100GB Pay Monthly SIM Only deal.
It’s a 24 month contract at £16 / month. You get unlimited minutes and texts and, importantly, there are no EU roaming fees until at least 2025. The £16 fee is fixed for the full contract term. Tesco Mobile runs on the O2 network so if you are already with O2 there would be no difference in your reception.
4,000 Clubcard points will convert into 8,000 Virgin Points. You could also use them for £80 of Hotels.com credit or various other partner deals.
You can find out more on the Tesco Mobile website here.
Head for Points shortlisted for three major awards
I’m pleased to say that we’ve been shortlisted in three categories at the 2023 Business Travel Journalism Awards.
* Digital Journalist of the Year (for, erm, me)
* Editor of the Year (for, erm, me again)
* Features Journalist of the Year – Accommodation (for Rhys, who generously spent 70+ nights in four and five star hotels across 2022/23 on your behalf)
To be honest we rarely win these things because our short-form journalism (duplicated over 1,100 articles per year) can’t easily beat a 5,000 word long-form article, but it’s always good to be recognised.
Sadly Rhys’s recent mould-breaking taste test face-off between the new BA economy short-haul flapjack and the new BA economy short-haul banana bread missed the nomination cut-off. It will have to wait until next year for what will surely be a well deserved award 🙂
The winners will be announced at a dinner at the Tower of London in a couple of weeks, although annoyingly it clashes with the Virgin Atlantic SAF flight.
