Virgin Atlantic Flying Club – up to 40% bonus miles with Miles Booster

From 1st October to 31st October 2019, you can enjoy up to 40% bonus miles* with Miles Booster. I always use Miles Booster when I fly Virgin as it is an easy way to buy cheap miles. 

So what is Miles Booster?

Miles Booster is a way to earn extra miles on flights with Virgin Atlantic by paying extra. Once you’ve booked your flight, you can choose to boost online through your Flying Club profile by single or double extra miles. You can even use it for flights you have already flown. This can be done with their Customer Service Centre team, drop them a text on +44 (0) 7481 339184 or you can give them a call on +44 (0) 344 412 2414.

You can even do it on redemption flights or miles upgrades. Miles Booster can only be used on Virgin Atlantic flights on either a one-way or a return ticket. The boosted miles will be in your account around three days after your flight. 

Here is an example from London to New York return:

Boost with the single flown miles:
Get an extra 6,916 miles for £69.16

Or double the flown miles:
Get an extra 13,832 miles for £138.32

*Boost by X1 = 20% bonus miles, X2 = 30% bonus miles, X3% = 40% bonus miles.

Mariott American Express Platinum offer

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London review

St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London

It’s time to check your Amex offers and see if you have the Marriott offer. It is only available for the first 30,000 Cardmembers who save the offer to their Card. The offer gives a £50 statement credit when you spend £200+ at selected Marriott Hotels when you book, stay and pay by 31/12/19. The offer includes both prepaid online payments and checkout spend. You can only use it once. You must book direct with Marriott too. 

It is worth keeping an eye on any foreign currency spend as the offer covers hotels in the UK and some of Europe. You can find the list of participating hotels here. The T & C says the offer only applies to the amount settled in British Pounds on the Card to which the offer is saved. You will be charged a non-Sterling transaction fee of 2.99% for transactions made in a currency other than UK pounds. Statement credit will only be rewarded if the spend threshold of £200 is met, so keep an eye on the exchange rate if you are close to the £200 mark.

    For those who don’t know( I learnt this trick from Michele myself) you can also get Accor Gold status by buying an Ibis On Business card. They retail for £65.00 & buying it automatically gives you Gold with Accor for 12 months. You can find what perks you get on their, albeit it terrible most the time, website but the thing pays for itself.

    My upgrade rate has been 95% so far and the one time I wasn’t and emailed them about it they actually refunded the entire stay so really it’s 100% I guess. The thing pays for itself in one stay.

  2. I’ve got the Marriott offer on my SPG Amex. I’m not sure if that should be to be expected, or unexpected since these offers are meant to entice you away from your usual spending pattern, and you’d think someone with an SPG card would already spend plenty with Marriott.
