What you missed on Head for Points whilst you were on holiday ….

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

For most people, today marks the end of Summer and, if you’ve got them, probably the return of the kids to school. Your office may be at 100% capacity for the first time in six weeks!

Since most Head for Points readers will have been away during August at some point, I have prepared this summary of all of the posts published during the month (apart from those relating to promotions which have now closed). You can see what you missed, and catch up with your reading.

If you are a new reader, you should also take a look at the ‘Top Posts’ page which includes links to the most interesting articles published here since we launched.

  1. thanks Raffles. As a very new subscriber (that hasn’t been on holiday for the summer) I very much appreciate this.

    I have to say I’m also really impressed with your newsletters so far. Quality, fairness, neutral advice. I hope it leads you wherever you want to go.
