News in brief:
Get 1,000 bonus Avios with a new British Airways American Express deal
A new offer has appeared on British Airways American Express Premium Plus credit cards, and potentially also on the free version.
You should find it on the ‘Offers’ page of the American Express app or website on your BA Amex account.
It is simple enough. Once registered, you will receive 1,000 bonus Avios when you spend £200 on BA Cityflyer flights at ba.com by 10th March.
The bonus Avios will be sent via American Express along with your normal monthly Avios, and not added to whatever flights you book.
Cumulative spend is OK.
Note that the offer appears more generous than it is. Amex talks about ‘British Airways spend’ but when you click the list of participating airports you will see that ONLY BA Cityflyer services are included. This means that only BA Cityflyer flights from London City, Edinburgh, Southampton and Stansted count. You can’t use the offer on any flights to/from Heathrow or Gatwick.
Flights must depart from the UK and must be a round trip. The bonus will not trigger if you book a one-way BA Cityflyer flight to the UK, and in theory won’t trigger if you only book a one-way outbound.
Last day to book in the Hilton sale
Today (30th January) is your last chance to book in the current Hilton sale for hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
You can get up to 20% off participating properties when you book a weekend stay between now and 8th April 2024.
You can see full details on the Hilton website here. Here’s the small print:
- you must book by 30th January 2024
- your stay must be taken by 8th April 2024
- full prepayment is required and rooms are not refundable
- sale rates are only available for weekend stays at participating hotels
You will save up to 20% off the standard Best Flexible Rate, although note that these sale rooms are not refundable whereas Best Flexible Rate rooms are.
The discount is lower if you are not a Hilton Honors member, but I assume you are (!) as a HfP reader – and if not, you can join for free at the Hilton website.
PS. The new Lost Property St Paul’s (Curio Collection by Hilton) is pictured below and is reviewed here.
Amazon Prime launches a special deal with HelloFresh
This is, admitedly, totally outside our ‘miles and points’ remit. However, Amazon sends us details of its new promotions and I imagine that a large percentage of our UK readers have Amazon Prime.
As you can see here, Amazon Prime members who are also subscribers to HelloFresh meal kits will get free Hello Fresh delivery for 12 months. This will save you £4.99 per box.
You can link your HelloFresh account to your Amazon Prime account via this page of the Amazon website.
There is also an offer there for anyone who is not currently a HelloFresh customer.
If you are a HelloFresh customer but not a Prime subscriber, you can sign up for a 30-day Amazon Prime free trial here in order to get free delivery on your HelloFresh orders.
PS. If you have American Express Preferred Rewards Gold with its £120 of annual Deliveroo credit, remember that Amazon Prime members get FREE Deliveroo Plus status for 12 months. This gets you free delivery on orders above £25. You can sign up for this offer here.
