I have mentioned the Mr & Mrs Smith Blacksmith membership before, but I wanted to do a quick recap. My Silversmith membership is up for renewal and I was just doing a little stock-take of what I will get for my £40 renewal fee. Quite a lot, as it happens! Relatively large discounts at luxury retailers (including but not limited to: Becca, Bliss, Liberty and FeelUnique), money back on every booking, free perks and upgrades and lovely “extra” gifts when you arrive at your hotel. (I have had champagne on ice, cocktails, beauty products, cheese platters!)
The most amazing thing about all of these benefits is that the entry-level membership, Blacksmith, is absolutely free. So, you get amazing discounts when you’re shopping and brilliant perks when you book a hotel, yet it costs you nothing. This has surely got to be the best deal around! It’s not even a deal, it’s just…free! I’m sticking with my Silversmith – I’m tempted to bump up to Goldsmith with its airport lounge access and full concierge service (as well as 5% money back on every booking) but it’s £400 a year. I need to have a quick look at my expenses tally before I can take that plunge!
