God bless the Monarchy! 🇬🇧
Saddest and toughest day for the nation for decades to come.
I think those in ‘our nation’ using food banks or sleeping rough will have had tougher days.
And maybe you should do something about it if you care so much instead of posting here ?29th July 2022 at 07:12 in reply to: Starting journey in INV or DUB, checking luggage at LHRKP

Was charged £140 annual fee so wanted to cancel. Via live chat, the agent offered my wife 7k points. I then contacted the agent via live chat and I was offered 20k point. Needless to say, we both accepted. We will use the deliveroo benefits next month and cancel.27th April 2022 at 08:14 in reply to: Zipcar experience post move?KP

Why not downgrade to the free amex card and keep your points until you need them28th February 2022 at 08:29 in reply to: Silver member benefits when booking cheapest WT fareKP
For HBO you will get free seat selection but not free luggage. You can pay for luggage just like any other passenger.
All passengers on the same booking as you get free seat selection4th February 2022 at 00:48 in reply to: Your hot tips for the best 5 star hotel breakfast in London?KP

Its a known bug. You get the avios and TP if you upgrade with cash (on avios booking or booking upgraded with avios). Also if you have an avios booking and your flight is rescheduled etc., highly likely you will receive the avios and TP27th January 2022 at 10:23 in reply to: Just got through to the Gold line in 3 minutes ….KP

The temp limit increase is only for a few days to allow you to charge the card and then pay it off. So not sure it would even really impact your credit score.24th January 2022 at 13:44 in reply to: Post your American Express Platinum retention offers here!KP
Wife was declined a retention offer on the basis that the card was only taken out in Sept… doh…24th January 2022 at 10:59 in reply to: Buying a car using AmexKP
Why don’t you ask Amex for a temporary limit increase? Pay off the amount in the next few days, and you’ll be fine.24th January 2022 at 10:58 in reply to: ITA Airways Volare FF programme status match – upgraded?KP

I believe its only for non-hand baggage only cash fares.

I paid £200 for Hakkasan via their booking website for 4 x £50 deposits. After dinner they gave me a bill for £80 after taking off the £200 already paid. Amex now saying that I don’t qualify as they billed that via stripe. My statement clearly shows Hakkasan Mayfair London.
Anyone had a similar experience? What should I do?
I had the same issue with Yauatcha. See my earlier post. After a complaint, Amex manually credited the offer. I had the receipt to show but they didn’t ask for it.27th December 2021 at 14:43 in reply to: American Express £200 Platinum dining credit – Expires 31/12/21KP
I dined at Duck and Waffle and received the credit. My bill was £111.I had to pay £60 deposit in advance and paid £51 after my meal. Only £51 was credited to my statement. I enquired with Amex via online chat. They told me that the £60 deposit was outside the t&c of the offer because it was paid via a payment processor but they would see what they could do. Around a week later the £60 was also credited to my statement.
I am currently facing the same issue with Yauatcha. I havent received credit for the £100 they charged us in advance. Complaint raised with Amex
I had the same issue KP – I raised it as an issue via chat, but need to follow up again.
Update: Amex have said they will manually apply the credit in 1-2 days24th December 2021 at 00:23 in reply to: How long are tier points and Avios taking to post to accounts?KP
I’m still waiting for a flight from 19th November (when the system was down) to be credited. The outbound has been in my account for a long time, but the return is missing. Trying to claim via the missing Avios link just reports that my ticket number is incorrect when it isn’t.
I’ve emailed BA, so just waiting to hear back now.
I have the same issue. Flight on 19th Nov hasnt posted. Cant claim via missing avios link.
Frustrating24th December 2021 at 00:20 in reply to: Are Rapid PCR tests valid for entry into UK?KP
From a science perspective there is nothing like a Rapid PCR.
A PCR is a PCR…. What makes it rapid is if the laboratory processes it in priority to the others.
But it is still a PCR !24th December 2021 at 00:15 in reply to: Is Bonvoy status based on calendar year end or 12 months from sign up?KP
It is calendar year, if you read the T&Cs.

Just want to confirm re. SNAs
This year I have 3 suite awards which will be extended to June 2022. If I complete 50 nights this year then I can choose 5 additional SNA? Which means next year I will have a total of 8 SNA? Is that correct? Thanks21st December 2021 at 09:48 in reply to: Flying Blue points extendedKP
Great news !20th December 2021 at 20:22 in reply to: Collinson PCR test result overdue; what should I do?KP
Is there any other place around LCY or o2 arena which does PCR tests and are reliable ?
