Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

‘Thank You’ x 1 million

A little surprisingly, to put it mildly, Head for Points has just hit 1 million ‘unique visitors’ for the past 365 days:

Uniques crop

(The little dip last August is when I accidentally deleted the tracking code and didn’t notice for three days!)

A ‘unique visitor’ is not a person.  It is an IP address.  If, over the past year, you have read HFP from your home, from your office, from a hotel room, from an airport lounge etc then you will have been counted numerous times.  On the other hand, if two people in your house read HFP then only one ‘unique visitor’ is counted.

1 million unique visitors is not 1 million different people.  And many of those just popped over from Google for 30 seconds, read one article and left, never to return.  That said, it is still a slightly scary number!  Thank you all for your support.

    Congratulations and thank you Raffles!

    I look forward to the emails in the morning and always check back later in the day to read the comments.

    Because of you and this site I have; a nice pile of points and miles, will qualify as BA Silver shortly for the 1st time, will be flying First for the 1st time (ex-DUB sale then UuA), recently returned from honeymoon having flown Club (again UuA), have 3 free nights at the Intercon San Francisco booked (from Into the Nights and extra bonus points) and and have had many other small bonuses from various other bits and pieces. Needless to say I am very grateful and use every opportunity to encourage people I know to get on here.
