Doing anything this weekend? I know where I’ll be – at the exclusive AerClub event at Kildare Village!
This weekend, on the 8th and 9th of September, AerClub are having an exclusive event at Kildare Village for AerClub members. Not only can you save up to 20% in participating stores, but you can also collect triple Avios, that’s 15 Avios for every €4 spent! You will also get free access to the VIP Lounge during your visit and you could win a shopping trip for two to Barcelona! This exclusive event is a great way to boost your Avios account. Fancy some Autumn / Winter wear or maybe some early Christmas shopping? Popular stores including Hobbs, Asics, Sun Fashion Lab, Watch Station and many more are participating. A full list of participating stores will be released shortly.
To put this into context, so you can see how great this promotion really is, if you spend €200 at Kildare Village this weekend, you will receive a whopping 3000 Avios, plus a bonus of 200 Avios (1 per customer for any purchase) when you claim your Avios on the day! You only need 8000 Avios for a return flight to Paris and 26,000 for a return flight to New York (you just need to pay taxes, fees and charges). You can also use Avios to pay for hotels, car hire and travel experiences. See five ways to spend Avios here. I am a big fan of Avios and I have already collected 60,000 Avios, most of which were accumulated by shopping. For more details on how to get flights and upgrades by shopping click here. In case you didn’t know, Avios are a reward currency that are used by many airlines including Aer Lingus, British Airways and Iberia, as well as various hotel websites and high street stores.
