5th October – Where can you go with Virgin Flying Club miles, given the new 25,000 mile bonus on their credit card?

  • We missed off the recent relaunch on Mumbai (and for some reason Tel Aviv ended up under America!)

4th October – Bits: £50 Marriott cashback offer via Amex, new BA codeshare deal with Malaysia Airlines, PremiAir now covering 32 airlines

  • We typed Loganair twice on the PremiAir list – the 2nd entry was meant to be Oman Air

2nd October – How to earn and spend Avios on Vueling flights

  • We corrected the list of UK destinations and clarified the fact that, when booking at the Vueling website, you can also give an Iberia Plus account number if you wish

15th September – REGISTER NOW: 3,000 bonus IHG points per InterContinental stay (and more if you join Ambassador)

  • The link to register was incorrect but is now fixed, sorry

8th September – Get 5,000 Avios or other miles with your first Rocketmiles hotel booking

  • Not all hotels are participating, which is now made clear in the text

6th September – Confirmation that BA is now only charging 50p Avios cancellation fees on short haul!

  • Added a clarification that this does not apply to flights booked with a BA American Express 2-4-1 voucher

2nd September – The Amex bonus you can still get: 30,000 Membership Rewards points with the Amex International $/€ Cards

  • Updated the FX rates used for points conversion which were out of date.  Added a line explaining that the Euro card can be paid by Direct Debit from a Euro-denominated Revolut account

31st August – #BA100 – the story of the first British Airways flight

  • The Times article quoted was obviously from 1919 and not 2019!

21st August – What is the best hotel scheme? – Marriott Bonvoy – The Opinion

  • Platinum Elite status does not get you United MileagePlus Silver status.  You need to be Titanium Elite or Ambassador Elite.
