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.

    Hairbrush out of stock…why am I not surprised!

  • CV says:

    There is also a Braun promo for 500 points, for some cheaper items, including the Braun Mobile Shave M90 electric shaver, £19.50.

    Cheapest item for 500 points is some sort of trimmer for sideburns, at about £14.

  • Adam says:

    I considered purchasing a few for resale purposes but looking yesterday the cheapest version does not sell that well and new listings since this offer began has driven the prices lower and lower. Glad i didnt go for this in the end. Resale on ebay comes at a cost which lots of people dont always consider like p&p, jiffy bags, recorded post rates on a small parcel, paypal fees and reducing your prices to stay competitive. Considered also the more expensive versions but then as your list prices go up so does all your ebay / paypal fees. There didnt seems to be any mention on here of the 500 point offers for smaller braun items?

    • Andy says:

      If you cut your costs to the bone then you are still purchasing Avios on the cheap.
      If I were to sell one of these at the cheapest price I can see on eBay, £18.75, and only send via small package rate of £3.20, (only proof of posting required for small value items, I have had to make a claim before and the PO paid up within 3 weeks. But always send first class to comply with my top rated seller status) pop into a bubble envelope (25p). Final selling and insertion fee approx. £1.50, paypal 45p. You are paying about £10.50 or there abouts for 2.4k Avios.

      • Andy says:

        Forgot to mention that any money off spend vouchers would help as well.

      • Paul says:

        Where are you buying large bubble envelopes for 25p?! Unless you’re buying in huge volume I can’t see that happening…

  • Adam says:

    OOS now on the cheapest version so post will need editing to reflect the price of the next one up. May see this version OOS by tomorrow also?

  • Adam says:

    The £41.25 next cheapest version is also OOS now.

  • Paul says:

    Bit of a non-deal with the cheapest product available being £50…

    • Rob says:

      Set a stock alert, they may come back in next 2 weeks

      • Adam says:

        Think the posting header needs to be ammended now as the £24.36 cheapest version used in the introduction has now been removed completly. The £41.25 version is now the cheapest with a stock alert button attached. Must of been limited stock of the cheapest version.

  • Oscar the grouch says:

    OT: But does anyone have any inside info on any upcoming amex MR bonuses? Personally would like one to SQ….

  • Andrew says:

    Do we not get into Mr T’s “bulk buying” investigations again?
