Check out Head for Points on the American Express travel blog

I wrote a piece recently for the American Express travel blog which has just gone live.

I was only given a limited amount of space, but I hope it gives readers an idea of the ‘bigger picture’ of how they can earn and burn their Avios points.

Apologies for the headline, which I did not write!

    When you read the review site, on tesco clubcard, you realise how many people are making the mistakes you write about in your article.
    It does take a bit of time and effort, but websites like HFP, certainly make it a lot more rewarding and easier!

    • Apparently 60 per cent on Avios members don’t even know Tesco is a partner according to a survey I saw !

    Good stuff!

  3. That is hardly a blog… you can’t even leave comments. Or is any online magazine by random authors also referred to as a blog?

    I’m sure they poached their headline writer from The Sun.

  5. Nice succinct summary, Rob – funnily I was chatting to colleagues at work today about this and they made similar comments re. economy redemption costs. I educated them suitable re. RFS and UuA 😉
