    Does anyone know why people on HFP are buying John Lewis gift cards in T (obv. the 75 cc for every £25) and you can use them in Waities.... but is there another reason that I cannot find/understand? Thanks x

    I suspect that (a) they will do virtually anything for Avios and (b) are more likely to be shoppers of JL/ waity. Also think it can be combined with a current Amex offer where you get double avios for shopping with the BA Amex if you reach the target spend of £10,000 in the next few weeks.

    Very different audience, that £10,000 spend wasn't a typo.

    The headforpoints thing is all to do with accumulating avios.

    It can be - the interest in JL in particular though may mean there is another angle - can you get a refund with JL on the GC ...? Use for currency exchange (though not the best at the moment)? Pay your JL or W credit card bill ...?

    I have to admit it is above my head, I have read and re-read. I think the Elite are getting more shopping from Waities at the moment.. so we maybe posh

    I think a few Elite may have done £10,000 on the V3 with rinse and repeat.... I was an amateur... but I did get a lovely diamond ring!

    If UP was with us.... I think it would be very hot!



    Thanks, I am looking at all the cheap flights including easy jet, when I have booked the flights, I will look for as nice a hotel as we can afford (my logic is that we will spend more time in the hotel)



    We will be catching the end of the half term as the special date is on the 12th so it won't be too bad x

    It maybe this, but people are doing 50 mile round trips for the cards so wonder if it is something we are not aware of x

    Looks like this is on the grocery website for two days only. 10th and 11th. HUKD are suggesting this is online only but I don't think that is right as all Ts offers always say "offer valid For delivery from X until Y" which it would because we are looking at the online delivery website.

    There should be some some brand match bargains T v A, I've looked on MSM (check A website before buying) and found these all cheaper at A.

    Barefoot Pinot Grigio
    Gallo family white Grenache
    Harry's stamp Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
    Barefoot white zinfandel
    Cono sur bicicleta sauvignon blanc
    Cono sur bicicleta Pinot noir
    Torres Sanger de toro catalunya
    Faust into VII Rioja
    Cassllero del diablo Shiraz

    There are probably more as I've only had a quick look.

    The way that they were talking about the cards, it was like they were talking about v3 again... If it is something similar it is worth having a play x
