    Not that exclusive – every member of my family got the same offer – from Platinum right down to Club

    Don’t forget to link Nero with your My Waitrose card, you get a free drink for registering, and then discounts (at the minute, on the Christmas menu)

    My card order of use is:
    BA Amex (free card) – for the Avios and Companion Voucher (usually hit £12k a year)
    Virgin Atlantic (free card) – for the Virgin points, and to avoid non-sterling transaction fees in the EU and EEA
    Nationwide – for rest-of-the-world purchases with no non-sterling transaction fees

    in reply to: Zurich advice please

    In addition to my post above, any hotel recommendations for Zurich or the Zurich region generally would be appreciated whether privately owned or one of the big hotel groups. Not aiming for the top tier most expensive hotels but happy to look at anything else that you considered gave decent quality and good value.

    Last summer we were on an Accor trip around Switzerland: Novotel in Geneva (10/10), Swissotel in Bern (9/10), and for Zurich we chose the 25hours hotel. It’s skewed towards a younger crowd, every room has a Freitag bag to borrow, there’s a hip bar in the lobby and a funky shop, but given it was August the prices were incredibly low. We took the penthouse suite “Trainspotting” (great view of the city, station, and railway lines – nicer than it sounds) which had an outdoor sundeck, loads of space, well under £200. It’s about 10 minutes West of the station, but it’s a really new district with shops and cafes (and Google offices) all the way along. We’d strongly recommend 25hours, especially if you have Accor Gold of course!

    End of an era. Downloaded my statement today, all the IHG branding gone, and on IHG my final 4 (4!!) points have finally been credited from last month.

    This is on https://www.guestopinionrewards.co.uk/ which is the one Hilton invited me to join. Now up to £60 worth of points. I get emailed a reminder every evening at 10pm. Usually about 3 surveys a day, up to 250 points each.

    Don’t forget the little packet of pretzels. That’s free too.

    I’m up to £40 worth of points in one week of surveys. Definitely worth it.
