Thank you to everyone who entered our competition to win 5,000 Avios last week, to celebrate Head for Points making the list of the top 5,000 websites in the UK by visitor numbers!

I’m sorry that I am announcing the winner a little later than expected.  The bottom line is that the closing time was midnight on Friday, and the great weather over the weekend meant I was out with the family instead of ploughing through all the entries!

There were 914 entries in the end, a truly amazing number given that you were limited to one per person.  Four entries came in after the official deadline, so I would have redrawn had one of those won.  In the end, though, they didn’t.

I fired up and a winner was chosen:


No 163.   That is D Maidment.

Congratulations!  I have dropped you an email, and as soon as you send me the information I need I will have the 5,000 Avios deposited in your account.

Thank you to everybody who entered, and better luck next time to the other 913 of you.  And thanks to everyone who left such positive comments about the site as part of their entry, I really appreciated it.
