THE EDIT • July 2021
Do you love collecting Avios through your online shopping? Well, you’re about to love us, as this month the eStore has a host of bumper promotions across its more than 1,100 retailers, meaning that every £1 you spend will bag you even more points than usual
Where to buy: Appleyard Flowers (20 Avios/£1 – was 5 Avios/£1)
It’s been a tough year, so why not put a smile on your friends’ faces by popping a fragrant bouquet through their door? Order with Appleyard and you’ll have not only the pick of its summer blooms, such as hydrangeas and sunflowers, but its whole range, from seasonal bouquets to charcuterie, Champagne and cocktail hampers. Appleyard will deal with all the gift cards and delivery, so you can put your feet up and reap the (Avios) rewards.
Where to buy: Hotels.com (12 Avios/£1 – was 7 Avios/£1)
Hotels.com has more than 325,000 hotels to pick from – and the good news is that you can collect Avios from every single one of them. That includes spying the northern lights from the decadence of Diamond Suites in Reykjanesbær, Iceland; whisking the family to Reid’s Palace in sun-soaked Madeira (pictured left), or overlooking the Acropolis at breakfast at King George, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Athens.
Where to buy: Oliver Bonas (8 Avios/£1 – was 5 Avios/£1)
As well as stylish homeware (we’re looking at you, velvet desk lamp) and eclectic beauty products, Oliver Bonas is a one-stop shop for those on the hunt for new season accessories. Add some bling to your ensemble with an eye-catching lemon-stone brooch (pictured left) and gold bangle, or layer your look with subtle additions such as a delicate silver ring or garland leaf earrings. It’s all reasonably priced, so there’s no reason not to treat yourself.
Where to buy: Levi’s UK (10 Avios/£1 – was 8 Avios/£1)
To celebrate this year’s Pride, jeans giant Levi’s has created a customisable collection of T-shirts, hoodies and tote bags you can literally put your name on. Treat your mates (or yourself) to a bright, bespoke item, or dive into the brand’s plethora of denim offerings, from trucker jackets and deconstructed skirts to figure-hugging bodywear and microfibre trainers. Struggling to choose? You can’t go wrong with a pair of classic 501s. You’re welcome.
Where to buy: Marks & Spencer (3 Avios/£1 – was 1 Avios/£1)
Summer is in the air, which means parents are prepping for grubby hands, muddy knees and socks full of sand. Kit your kids out right for the holidays with M&S’s children’s range, featuring crocodile swim shorts, long-sleeved swimsuits (to keep those rays at bay) and snuggly hoodies for when the sun goes down. The best bit? All these items (and more) are in its three for two offer.
