As Autumn gets into gear, I would expect a surge of new promotions and deals. We have already seen some pretty good promotions launched over the last few weeks.

To ensure you don’t miss out, here is a quick reminder of the different ways you can follow Head for Points each day:

Facebook – like us via www.facebook.com/headforpoints

Twitter – follow us at www.twitter.com/headforpoints

Google+ – circle us at Google+

LinkedIn – connect with me at LinkedIn

RSS feed – if you use a blog reader – although the death of Google Reader has reduced the popularity of these – you can receive new posts by clicking on the RSS symbol in the sidebar on any page of the site

Email – receive new posts by email each morning by entering your details in the ‘Subscribe to New Posts’ box on the right. Note that each post comes as a separate email. (If you do receive posts by email, I would still recommend clicking through to the site during the day to check out the comments to the posts and, ahem, check for any corrections!)

…. or, of course, keep up to date by bookmarking www.headforpoints.com and checking back each day. New posts are normally published by 7.45am UK time, seven days a week.

Thank you for your continued support.

  1. I got an email from PayPal offering me a card terminal for 99 pounds with a 2.75% fee for chip + pin transactions and 3.4% for manual swipe. Could this be a deal to earn some miles on your own/relatives cards?

    I find the fee quite high, if you consider your guide on paying for taxes. However with this you can use Amex for those not lucky enough to have the MC and earn 2.5 per £.

    • Buy an izettle for your iphone from EE. £20 but you get a £20 discount on your transaction fees, which are the same as Paypal quoted I think …..

  2. That’s a good idea, I see that izettle have two readers, one with Chip + PIN and another without, it seems the EE one is without it. For the former the fees are on a rolling scale down to 1.5% and the latter seems to be fixed at 2.75 no doubt due to the lack of Chip + PIN.

    Is there anything “wrong” with charging your own/relatives cards? With PayPal you can do that into a private account, not sure whether izettle needs to be a commercial bank account.

    • Probably not, but I assume they are covered by the usual money laundering rules and need to watch transaction patterns for anything suspicious, a la Paypal.
