Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Bits and pieces for Tuesday (Clubcard, TopCashback, Accor)

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

1. Earning almost 50,000 Avios with a new kitchen!

20,000 bonus Clubcard points is an offer that you don’t see very often! That would be 48,000 Avios, or over 70,000 during a decent conversion bonus! The snag is that you would need to buy your new kitchen from Tesco Kitchens to get these. See here for details. (Thanks to Michael)

Personally, I got my last kitchen from John Lewis and they were great!

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?

2.  200 bonus Clubcard points when you buy Monopoly

A rather obscure offer, admittedly!  See here – you earn 200 bonus points, plus 14 base points, when you spend £14.97 on a special edition of Monopoly at Tesco Direct.

3. Clarification of the Avios from Clubcard from TopCashback rules

Further to my TopCashback introductory posts last week, it has now been confirmed that the ‘£50 maximum transfer to Clubcard per year‘ is NOT based on a calendar year. It is based on the anniversary of your first transfer of cashback to Clubcard.

This means that you should make your first transfer to Clubcard as soon as you can, even if it just a couple of pence from a Kelkoo search, as it brings forward the date when your year re-sets and you can do your next chunk of £50.

You can join TopCashback here.

4.  TopCashback on AwardWallet

If you use AwardWallet to keep track of your miles and points (see here for a post explaining how to use AwardWallet to track your miles) it is worth noting that you can also use it to track your TopCashback cashback.  Note that it displays the ‘Pending’ figure rather than the figure that is actually available to withdraw.

5.  Accor ‘Happy Mondays’ promotion still running

If you ever book a hotel room at short notice for the coming weekend, it is worth remembering the Accor ‘Happy Mondays’ promotion.  I got an email about this yesterday so it is still running.  Basically, they open up a lot of rooms across the UK at discounted prices every Monday, for stays the following weekend.  I wrote about Accor ‘Happy Mondays’ here back in January.

    Obviously, you can’t beat John Lewis in terms of high street kitchens. Tescos surprisingly though seem to be getting fairly good reviews so I don’t think we should write them off and it might be worth investigating further!
