Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Cheaper Avios from Shell with 5p off per litre (plus half-price Starbucks gift cards!)

Barclaycard has launched a range of special deals called Bespoke Offers, which are currently being promoted in TV ads.

Weirdly, to put it mildly, you do NOT have to have a Barclaycard to take part in these offers.  Even more weirdly, for offers which require payment, they are even accepting American Express!

Now, Head for Points is not MoneySavingExpert and so this would usually be something I’d pass on.  However, one of the deals is relevant.


Via Bespoke Offers, you can download an unlimited number of vouchers for 5p off a litre of petrol at Shell.  Each is valid for a maximum of 50 litres per visit.  The vouchers expire on 31st May.

Shell Drivers Club is an Avios partner.  You earn 10 Avios points for every 20 litres of fuel you buy, and I think they still offer a one-off 50 Avios when you register your Shell Drivers Club card and select Avios as your earning partner.

The other Bespoke Offers are less exciting.  However, the one that caught my eye was a £10 Starbucks e-gift card for £5.  If you have a plastic Starbucks Card, you can easily transfer the balance from an e-gift card to your plastic card – if not, you need to print off your e-gift voucher or load it onto your phone and scan it in-store.

There is also £10 off a £50 House of Fraser online purchase, amongst other things.

    The House of Fraser ‘Get £10 off a spend over £50’ works a treat with the £50 HoF gift card I got with £25 off with Fourquare… How I love shopping! 🙂
