Wow!

When, oh, when will they introduce a credit card for those of us not resident in the UK?

I applied just a few days ago - wonder if I'll qualify!?! I guess I should because I could always just rip up the offer and apply again!

What a great offer.

I was really annoyed with myself for missing out on the 4500 miles offer when the card launched.

It says the flight will be an award flight, so I guess it won't earn miles. Wonder if gold card members will be upgraded to business, as for normal reward redemptions?

Just had a thought, the promotion states "apply by 8 August" but says nothing about a start date for the promotion, so in theory I have applied by 8 August... Any chance then I could just say I didn't get my free flight credited?

In all likelihood, yes, given that they're unlikely to create a new fare bucket for this award, so it'll just go through as a regular destinations miles award, and gold members get an automatic upgrade when booked under that bucket AFAIK...

I hope you all get your 'free flights' as I sure didn't get my 200 points when it was first announced.
