Greetings from a very jet lagged GodSaveThePoints headquarters. After an exciting brief visit to the UK for some TV appearances (woohoo), we're back at work, bringing you all the news you need to make the most of your travel, points and miles. So far, today's news is good news...

Virgin Atlantic 30% OFF Sale Using Miles For Economy...

Virgin Atlantic are currently offering a 30% off sale for economy seats using your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Miles to the US and destinations around the world. In the sale you can snag one way flights for as low as 12,250 miles + $134 for a one way flight from the US to Europe. Round trip fares departing the US will cost 24,500 miles + $435 and those departing Europe to the US will run 24,500 + Β£231. You can additionally use miles to Hong Kong, Barbados, Delhi for slightly more miles. Full details HERE. Also, for those with Amex, Citi, Chase or Starwood points, you can instantly create Virgin Atlantic points by transferring them over. I wouldn't advocate under most circumstances because those points are extremely valuable. This is perfect if you're sitting on some Virgin Atlantic miles though...

British Airways DOUBLE Avios Promotion

Getting double what you usually receive is always a very welcome bonus. British Airways have a new promotion encouraging new bookings to a wide variety of locations for anyone with a British Airways account registered in the UK or Ireland. If you register, book, and then fly two long hauls before July 31st on British Airways or American Airlines you'll earn double Avios for your flight in any cabin. Pretty solid opportunity. Full details and registration can be found HERE. As a matter of note, it seems that you'll need to register and then book to be able to claim the bonus, so if your flights are already booked you may be out of luck, though it certainly wouldn't stop me from trying!

Cheapest Ever Hyatt Points Opportunity...

Since some staggering amount of American's never travel, the US Travel Association is out with a series of daily promotions, offering cheap points, hotel stays and opportunities for people to leave their homes. On Friday, we'll see a very interesting promotion where it's possible to buy quite a few Hyatt points at the lowest ever prices offered, such as 72,000 points for $775. That's more than enough points for two nights in Hyatt's highest hotel category, including the luxurious Park Hyatt New York or Paris VendΓ΄me. You'll have to strike quickly because there are only a limited amount of packages available. As a matter of note, it's marketed as a "suite package" but you'll read that it's in the form of 72,000 points deposited into your account. Details HERE.
