News in brief:
7,200 Avios or 7,500 Virgin miles with Tesco home insurance
Tesco Bank has extended its current offer of 3,000 Clubcard points when buying home insurance until 31st August. This is good news if your renewal missed the previous dates.
You can convert this into 7,200 Avios or 7,500 Virgin Flying Club miles.
Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios? You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (www.shopperpoints.co.uk), which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk! Why not check it out now?
£10 Boots gift card when joining TopCashback
I wrote last week about how TopCashback is ending the conversion of cashback to Tesco Clubcard on 31st July.
If you were not a TopCashback member but want to sign up and see if you can generate any paid cashback before 31st July, the company is offering a £10 Boots gift card when you earn your first £10 of cashback.
You MUST be referred by an existing member to get this deal. Instructions on how to join are in this Shopper Points article today.
Even if the cashback from your transactions does not arrive by 31st July, you will still get the £10 Boots gift card – this is triggered however long it takes to earn your first £10.
HFP server issues
Finally, apologies to anyone who had trouble accessing HFP on Friday and Saturday. There were some server issues which I do not fully understand but which I am guessing come from another site on our server receiving a substantial traffic boost.
HFP was never ‘down’ completely – page views were only off by 20% – but I know it was frustrating for many people. High end, dedicated, specialist WordPress hosting for HFP would cost well over £2,000 per year given our page views and I am obviously trying to avoid that if I can. I’m not sure if I have just been lucky to not have any major problems for the last four years given my current low cost approach.
