Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

1,000 Clubcard points (2,400 Avios) with Braun products from £24

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

Tesco has a launched a new Clubcard promotion in conjunction with Braun.  This offers potential if you are in the market for super-plush hairbrushes, would like to go into an eBay business selling hairbrushes, or are looking for a new shaver or hairdryer.

Take a look here for the list of items in the offer.

You receive 1,000 Clubcard points (2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club miles) for every item you buy.

The cheapest item is the Braun BR170 “hair brush with active ions and IONTEC technology” which sells for the odd price of £24.36.  That means you are paying exactly 1p per Avios point if you do ‘click and collect’ to avoid postage costs.

There is already an active market for these hairbrushes on eBay as you can see here.  The Tesco price seems a bargain compared to what is being asked by many sellers, so I would expect you to be able to get much of your £24.36 back.  That said, you may need to wait a while before selling as there may be a glut following this promotion.

The Tesco ‘1000 points’ deal runs until 8th September.

PS.  There is also an offer for 1000 Clubcard points when you spend £100 on Fisher-Price toys.  See here for details.  This deal also runs until 8th September.
