50% Off Fairmont Hotels

We quite regularly pop into the Fairmont Monte Carlo so I have checked out this 30% offer for the next 3 sets of dates that I prebooked. Seeing as these are non-refundable rates that I booked, I was really just opening myself to the torture of finding lower rates than I have tied myself into! Happily for me, I secured better rates for my December and February bookings, than are available in their Black Friday sale which are detailed as 50% off for this hotel. Having said that, the rates seem competitive so are worth a look.

Free Bitcoin & Free Airline Miles With Bitcoin

This is actually an ongoing offer not restricted to Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but seeing as Bitcoin seems to be on a roll, with a current price of around $8000 and predictions of Bitcoin being worth $100,000 – $2 million over the next 5-10 years, it might be just the time to jump on this bandwagon. It is worth noting that investing in cryptocurrencies remains a gamble, but one the most educated articles I have read trying to make sense of Bitcoin can be found on Moneyweek.

If you do decide to buy Bitcoin, make sure you set it up using a coinbase referral link like mine. Once you buy or sell $100 USD (£76) of digital currency or more, you will get $10 USD (£7) of free Bitcoin (as will your referrer, which on the link above would be me). I have also found Bitcoin to be a great way of boosting my airline miles. To the moon…
