With the World Cup now over (leaving the German part of my household very happy!) it is time to see who won the (just for fun!) Head for Points mini-league. This was run by redspottedhanky.com, the train booking website, with the carrot of 3p of redspottedhanky.com gift vouchers for every point you scored.

347 teams joined the Head for Points mini-league and entered a team. The winner was Englands elite1 who scored a whopping 455 points. As well as winning our mini-league, he or she came an impressive 4th overall out of 6,173 teams. Well done!

(Annoyingly, only the top three players overall won a prize – Englands elite1 just missed out!)

Fantasy Football

Second place was taken by Pompeyyorkblues – who ended up with 451 points – followed by The Wednesday with 449 points.

redspottedhanky was not incredibly generous this year.  Even Englands elite1 will not receive the maximum £15 of redspottedhanky train credit – and he/she came 4th out of 6,173!  Everyone will receive something, though, based on their final score multiplied by 3p.

In total, the teams in the Head for Points league scored a total of 59,351 points which means we earned £1,780 of train ticket credit between us! Well done everyone.

    RSH also dropped all the worthwhile partners for redeeming points to. I do miss the regular supply of Argos vouchers.

  • squills says:

    FWIW, when you cancel a RSH ticket, you get charged a £10 fee but get your vouchers renewed for 12 months.

    Might help somebody come December.

    Just need Raffles to find a way to keep my Shangri La points alive the same way 😉

    BTW have people been using the SLs in London yet?

    • Rob says:

      I didn’t know that – handy if you need a train ticket which may get cancelled.

      Shangri-La – in theory you can redeem in London from August 1st. I will be looking into this next week.

    Just been checking & tweaking my F1 teams, we’re doing great & in the top 20% 😉

    Worth a few quid in vouchers and ISTR there are 8 races to go.

    Actually the Fantasy World Cup points are in, despite RSH’s devilish systems I managed to navigate to my loyalty balances eventually & looks like the wife & I both got £5 out of it 😉

    Not exactly earth-shattering but better than a kick in the goalies I suppose lol
