The deals just keep on coming as part of Dubai Shopping Festival (until Saturday January 27) and they’re getting better and better. Whether you’re hankering after travel or just want to put your (newly slipper-ed) feet up in a nice hotel, the below will help you make the most of your dirhams during this long month of January.
Fancy flying away? It can take months, years even to rack up enough to get you anywhere decent, that is, until now. Spend at any of the Air Miles partner stores between now and the end of DSF (January 27), and you will automatically be entered into a draw to win one million air miles. Each swipe of the air miles virtual card will qualify as one entry, so every time you shop at the likes of Spinneys, Adidas, SharafDG and Damas you are in with a chance of being one of four lucky winners. The raffle draw will take place on January 27 at Global Village. There has never been a better time to buy those new Stan Smiths.
