Virgin Money seem to have the most interesting ways to entice customers to sign up to one of their products. The Virgin Money portfolio covers the majority, if not more options than a traditional bank and includes current accounts, mortgages, pensions and more. Now with their Flying Club Savings Account you can earn Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles when you save your money, rather than spend it.

See other Virgin Money products that offer amazing bonuses including up to 50,000 Flying Club Miles when using their money transfer service, up to 25,000 Virgin Atlantic Miles for taking out a Virgin Money Life Insurance Policy and 6,000 Flying Club Miles for signing up to a Virgin Money ISA.

The Virgin Atlantic 1 Year Flying Club Savings Account in principle works just like any other fixed term savings account. Put your money in for 1 year, don’t touch it, and receive a fixed amount of interest at the end. The key difference is that instead of being paid in interest you receive Virgin Flying Club miles. You earn 1,600 Flying Club Miles per £1,000 you save in the 1 Year Flying Club Savings Account. If you was to buy Flying Club Miles direct from Virgin Atlantic that would compare to an interest rate of around 2.40%. Saving £15,000 earns you 24,000 Flying Club Miles, enough miles for an off-peak return Economy reward flight to New York.

I Need Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles Now

The 1 Year Flying Club Savings Account is not the answer if looking to boost your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club account balance. You will only receive the miles after 1 year. Depending on how much you want to put aside there could be an alternative for quick Virgin miles.

If you sign up to the Virgin Money Stocks and Shares ISA and deposit a lump sum of £6,000 or more by the 31st October 2019 than you will qualify to earn 6,000 Flying Club Miles. Virgin Money mention in their terms and conditions that miles will be credited to accounts within 120 days. In reality I have seen miles post to accounts within 1 week of the deposit.

Having a Flying Club Savings Account also gives you unlimited free access to all Virgin Money lounges around the country. There are currently a total of 7 in Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London (Haymarket), Manchester, Norwich and Sheffield.

Sign up for a Virgin Atlantic 1 Year Flying Club Savings Account

There appears to be no fixed date for this offer. The amount of Virgin Miles you earn could change tomorrow (currently 1,600 Flying Club Miles per £1,000). If you are considering an application you may want to consider your options as soon as possible.

The latest Hilton Honors points promotion now is live and ends today – 28th May 2019. You will receive a 100% bonus when you purchase Hilton points. A bonus of 100% is the maximum seen by Hilton though they are known to differ their promotions between a “100% bonus” and “50% discount”, both of which are the exact in terms of the amount you will pay when purchasing points.

Until the end of today you receive up to an 100% bonus when purchasing Hilton hotel points.

  • Buy under 5,000 Hilton Honors points and receive no bonus
  • Buy 5,000 – 80,000 Hilton Honors points and receive a 100% bonus

Purchasing Hilton Honors points is a great way to boost your existing points balance. Immediately after the points credit to your Hilton Honors account you can use them to redeem points for Hilton stays instead of paying cash.

Purchase Hilton Honors points before the points promotion ends today – 28th May 2019.

hilton buy points may 2019 promo

During the promotion you can purchase up to 80,000 Hilton points, and also receive a further 80,000 bonus Hilton Honors points, making a total of 160,000 Hilton Honors points. To receive the maximum bonus you need to purchase over 5,000 Hilton Honors points. Any purchase of 5,000 or more Hilton Honors points will receive a bonus of up to 100%. Purchasing Hilton Honors points with the maximum 100% bonus works out around £3.50 per 1,000 points (charged in dollars at $5.00 per 1,000).

Planning on buying more Hilton points for a redemption? Remember that you can purchase a maximum of 80,000 Hilton Honors points per account (plus a further 80,000 bonus in the promotion, totaling 160,000 points per Hilton account) and then merge points together using the Hilton points pooling feature. Points can be merged with up to 10 other members in increments of 1,000 points and up to 500,000 points.

The New 2019 Hilton Price Match Guarantee

Hilton has changed from it’s existing “Best Rate Guarantee” to a new scheme named “Price Match Guarantee”. The main difference to the new Hilton Price Match Guarantee is that if you find a lower qualified price online then Hilton will match the price and give you an additional 25% off that stay. In the past with the old Hilton Guarantee you needed to have a booking direct with Hilton and send through the booking reference number via an online Hilton claim form to start your claim. That usually led to several messages backwards and forwards and wasted a lot of time. Now Hilton are encouraging you to contact them before you book with details of the cheaper rate from other sites (mainly the hotel comparison sites). That could save tons of time compared to the old method. Read more for full details.

You can also purchase hotel points in a other major hotel loyalty schemes.

Melia Hotels, the Spanish based hotel group, with key brands in the UK including Melia, ME and INNSIDE continue to sell their Melia Rewards points via Amazon. Their UK properties are located in the larger cities of London and Manchester so there is not a huge spread throughout the country unfortunately. The most impressive property is ME London which is an amazing building complete with rooftop bar overlooking central London. Their hotel loyalty scheme, Melia Rewards, have revived the ability to purchase points through their site and they also, in what seems to be a first for hotel loyalty schemes, allowing you to buy Melia Rewards points via Amazon.

Towards the end of last year Melia started to offer 2 different packages of MeliaRewards points through Amazon. These were only around for a few weeks and then were discontinued. Now listings have now appeared on Amazon and you can buy Melia Rewards points as follows:

  • 55,000 MeliaRewards points for £235.04
  • 35,000 MeliaRewards points for £149.56

Buy Melia Rewards gift cards via Amazon

Both packages work out to be approximately the same price with 1000 MeliaRewards points working out to be around £4.30 per thousand. This is much less than purchasing direct from the Melia site (plus the purchase points section of their website seems to be down quite regularly).

Melia Rewards points obtained via Amazon can also redeem in exchange for spa treatments or breakfast, lunch or dinner at any Melia hotel.

When you purchase Melia Rewards points via Amazon you will receive a gift card containing the points balance in the post – you do not receive an instant redemption code. Delivery is free but with the Melia points gift card being sent from Spain it can take around 7 days to arrive, though there are many reports of the gift cards arriving in a few days via courier.

Further details from the Amazon listing:

  • 55,000 MeliáRewards points to redeem for hotel nights – Equivalent to two hotel nights at Innside by Meliá and Meliá Hotels & Resorts 4* and 5*. If you prefer, you can also redeem your points in exchange for spa treatments or breakfast, lunch or dinner at any of our hotels. (*Equivalent points may vary depending on the date that you wish to book your stay or subject to availability at the hotel)
  • From the date of purchase, the gift card recipient will have six months to activate their code. Once activated, they have one year to use the points.
  • To redeem their points, recipients must register with Meliá Rewards, the Meliá Hotels International loyalty programme that offers exclusive benefits to guests all over the world.
  • The gift card is a laminated card with graphics and comes in a presentation envelope.

buy melia rewards points via amazon

Redeeming A Melia Rewards Points Gift Card

When you receive your Melia gift card you need to transfer the points to your Melia Rewards account. It really is a shame that Melia do not transfer the points directly to your account as it would be quicker, cheaper for Melia on the delivery cost, and save the planet a little as you only use the gift card for a few minutes.

To redeem the Melia gift card from Amazon and transfer the points directly into your account you need to:

  • Head over to the Melia site and log in to your account (if you do not have one already you can create a Melia account very easily)
  • After logging in go to the “My points” section, then click on the “Filter by category” button, then select “Shopping”
  • Click “Amazon.co.uk”, then “Get your Melia Rewards points”
  • Enter the code from the Melia gift card into the box

It is mentioned on the Melia site that points will take up to 24 hours to credit to your account, but in reality they are usually instant.

Airbnb has become hugely popular. Their platform offer thousands of places to stay, around the globe, in over 190 countries. As a guest you have the option to either book just a room, or an entire property, all of which can be done 100% online, directly on the Airbnb site. The only way to book Airbnb properties is directly on the Airbnb platform. They do not partner with hotel comparison sites, which also means it’s not possible to use discount codes on third party sites to lower the cost. The only way to save money directly on Airbnb is to use a Airbnb discount code or a discount voucher. Here is the list of ongoing Airbnb discounts for 2019, including Airbnb Experience discount.

Airbnb Discount For Accommodation & Experiences

£25 Off Your First Accommodation Booking

Airbnb are offering £25 off your first Airbnb booking for new members, ideal if you are planning on using their platform to book your spring/summer holiday accommodation. In brief, register on Airbnb and receive £25 off your first booking of accommodation of £55 or more.

New customers who register on Airbnb receive £25 off their first booking of £55 or more. Used wisely at the correct accommodation that’s around 50% off the cost of the stay – if you can find a place for around the minimum booking amount of £55. The free credit is automatically deducted from your first booking. The discount will remain on your account until it has been used or for a maximum of 12 months, so even if you don’t need to book a trip straight away it is still a good idea to sign up to receive the £25 bonus. You have 12 months to use the £25 free credit after signup.

Airbnb bonuses for new members is not anything new, and they have been offering sign-up promotions almost since the creation of the platform. The current signup bonus is £25, higher than last year when the bonus was only £15.

£9 Off Your First Experience Booking

Airbnb have branched out from being just an accommodation platform and are now offering experiences, that can be booked with or without accommodation. Airbnb Experiences operate in the same way as their accommodation part of the business, in the way that members are offering to share with you experiences of a specific area.

New customers who book an Airbnb Experience receive £9 off their first booking. Register on Airbnb and receive £9 off your first booking of £36 or more. That’s a saving of up to 25% off an Airbnb Experience.

The free credit is automatically deducted from your first booking. The discount will remain on your account until it has been used or for a maximum of 12 months, so even if you don’t need to book a trip straight away it is still a good idea to sign up to receive the £9 bonus.

Earn Airline Miles From Airbnb Stays

In the past, one of the drawbacks of using Airbnb was that you didn’t earn any airline miles for your stay. If you compare this to a stay at a typical chain hotel, you had this possibility to earn airline miles for your stay. Airbnb have realised that the ability to earn airline miles, for some customers, was a big drawback of the platform. Now it’s possible to earn miles towards flights when using Airbnb through partnerships with ANA (All Nippon Airways), Delta Airlines and Qantas.

Today is the last chance to sign up and register for the Hyatt points promotion where you can earn up to 75,000 Hyatt points for stays before 15th May 2019. 

At last, the latest Hyatt points promotion has now launched, where you can earn up to 75,000 Hyatt points during promotion period. This is the first promotion of the year from Hyatt and runs until 15th May 2019, though you must register by today.

The Hyatt points promotion is fairly simple:

  • Receive 1,000 bonus World of Hyatt points per night (increased to 1,500 bonus Hyatt points per night at Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties)
  • Receive bonus points from your second stay after registration – no bonus points on your first stay
  • Bonus is valid for cash nights, but also reward nights as well
  • Valid for stays before 15th May 2019
  • Registration required before 31st March 2019

With this promotion you can can earn up to 50,000 bonus World of Hyatt points, in addition to the usual earning rates, and this increases to up to 75,000 bonus World of Hyatt points if staying at Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties.

If you are able to maximise your hotel stays at their properties, then the Hyatt points promotion is one of the most lucrative currently available. The 75,000 bonus World of Hyatt points earned can be redeemed for 3 nights at some of their best hotels throughout the world.

Remember to register for the Hyatt points promotion to earn up to 75,000 bonus World of Hyatt points.

It’s also worth noting that promotion eligibility is determined by when you stay, and not by when you book. If you already have stays booked at Hyatt hotels during the promotion period these will earn the bonus points as long as you register for the promotion. Bonus points can also only be earned for one room per night, and the room must be occupied by the Hyatt account member to count toward this promotion.

Remember that you can purchase hotel points in other major hotel loyalty schemes which can save hundreds, even thousands, based on the cash prices at some resorts. In general the most exotic the resort the higher the saving when comparing cash and points prices.

Bonus points can be earned at all Hyatt brands including:

This is a reminder that the awesome 50,000 Virgin Flying Club miles bonus for using the Virgin Money International Transfer service ends in 7 days. So far this has been the biggest Flying Club bonus offered from all of the Virgin brands this year.

From all the brands under the Virgin umbrella, Virgin Money appear to have had some of the best Flying Club bonuses. In the past Virgin Money offered 3,000 Flying Club miles when using the Virgin International Money Transfer service. Now Virgin Money have gone even further by offering 50,000 Flying Club miles for new customers using the Virgin Money Transfer service. The maximum bonus is almost enough Flying Club miles for a Upper Class flight from London Heathrow to Hong Kong (57,500 Flying Club miles).

The amount of Flying Club miles you earn depends on the size of your transfer:

Total transferred amount Virgin Atlantic Flying Club miles
£5000 – £9999.99 2500
£10000 – £19999.99 5000
£20000 – £49999.99 10000
£50000 – £99999.99 25000
£100000+ 50000

There are also a few requirements you need to meet to qualify for the outstanding bonus, mainly that you are a new customer to the Virgin International Money Transfer service.

Virgin Money also promises a best exchange rate guarantee on all international money transfers, though it is always best to look around for the best rate and also consider international transfer specialists online. Virgin Money also publish all their exchange rates in a simple real-time chart.

To qualify for the offer you must:

  • Be a new customer, and not already have an existing Virgin Money International Transfer account
  • Open a new Virgin Money account to process the transfer (make sure to include your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club membership number during the application process)
  • Make a transfer for a minimum £5,000 before 27th March 2019

Virgin state that the miles will be credited to accounts within 60 days, but in the past when Virgin have promoted their different brands by offering Flying Club Miles, the miles earned are usually credited within 7 days. This miles promotion should be no different.

Transfer funds using the Virgin Money International Transfer service and receive up to 50,000 Flying Club Miles.

Offer ends 27th March 2019.

If you need Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles quick considering buying Virgin miles. Purchasing miles is a great way to quickly top up your account balance if you are a few miles short of a redemption.

A few years ago Hilton, unknowingly, made it very easy for anyone to gain Silver and Gold Honors status. It appeared that the links they had sent out to specific companies to try and entice their employees to stay at Hilton properties had appeared within many search engines. After the rebranding of the Hilton Honors scheme a little while ago (from Hilton HHonors to Hilton Honors) these links suddenly disappeared. Now it appears that through a series of links they are offering instant Hilton Silver status in their Hilton Honors scheme with no stay requirement.

Fast tracking your Hilton status is a great way of getting free room upgrades if you are staying at a Hilton property (loyal members are preferred over non-members in the hotel’s eyes) and Hilton Silver status set you on the way to Hilton Gold which get you free breakfasts when staying.

The instant Hilton HHonors Silver status, with fast track to Gold, works in the same way as the previous loophole. You now have the chance to upgrade to instant Hilton Silver status with just a few clicks – no hotel stay required. These offers are meant to be open to only cardholders of specific American Express cards, mainly in Singapore and Hong Kong, but the links are available publicly so anyone can register. Hilton also do not check (or are unable to check) if you actually hope that specific American Express card. There is no email verification and no address checks. This status loophole is again likely quick to be closed down so I would recommend signing up as soon as possible.

The Radisson Hotel Group, owner of hotel brands including Radisson BluPark PlazaPark Inn, and Radisson Collection (originally Quorvus Collection) opened its first Radisson RED hotel in the UK- the Radisson RED Glasgow last year. The 174-room Radisson RED Glasgow hotel, based in the city’s West End, opened its doors following a £30 million investment. The hotel, which is located in the heart of the city, features keyless entry technology, and self-check-in and check-out. The keyless entry can be managed through the Radisson RED app, meaning that you never need to visit the hotel reception. From the app you can even chat to other guests. The Radisson RED Glasgow also allows dogs under 15kg to stay for £10 per night.

The Radisson RED Glasgow was the fifth RED hotel to open behind Brussels, Campinas, Cape Town, and Minneapolis (at the time of opening). The ground floor of the hotel has the OUIBar + KTCHN space which is the hotel’s food, drink and social hub. On the top floor of the hotel is the RED Sky Bar with great views over the city.

The Radisson RED Glasgow is the third hotel to open by Radisson Hotel Group in the city – after Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson properties.
