Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 1,000 free Clubcard points with Shopper Points, HfP’s new baby sister

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Today is the soft launch day for a Head for Points spin-off project, Shopper Points.

You can earn 1,000 Clubcard points to celebrate.   Full details are below.

First, I wanted to explain why I have done this and what it means for HfP.

Why launch Shopper Points?

An increasing amount of HfP traffic each day comes from people searching online for more information about Tesco Clubcard.  Many of these people have no interest in Avios points and have no interest in reading HfP on a regular basis just to find the 5% of content which touches on Clubcard.

Shopper Points is designed for these people.  It will feature more Clubcard content than you find on Head for Points as well as some Nectar coverage.

Importantly, I will not be writing most of it.  I have roped in someone I have known for a few years and who will hopefully bring a different, younger, slant to the articles.  The launch content is all written by me but this will change as we go forward.

There are two unique items that you will only find on Shopper Points – smaller Tesco promotions which I do not consider important enough to make the HfP ‘cut’, as well as Nectar content which would never normally appear on this site.  More generous Tesco offers will appear on both sites.

There will only be 4-5 articles per week on Shopper Points.  You may want to sign up for the Shopper Points emails – you won’t be overloaded with mail.

Or, of course, bookmark the site and check back each day to see what is new.

There are two interesting references articles on the site that you might want to look at:

a list of ALL Tesco Clubcard Boost deals listed by whether they give you 4x, 3x, 2x or 1.5x the face value of your vouchers

a list of all Nectar redemptions which give you more than 0.5p per point, plus a summary of current Clubcard and Nectar bonus point deals

Earn 1,000 Clubcard points (2,400 Avios)

I have teamed up with cashback site TopCashback to offer 1,000 Tesco Clubcard points (worth 2,400 Avios or 2,500 Virgin Flying Club miles) to anyone who joins TCB this week.  

You will receive the bonus points as soon as you have earned £10 of cashback into your TopCashback account.  With Christmas shopping on the way, this should be easy to achieve – and in any event, there is no time limit  on when you must earn the £10.

If you already have a TopCashback account for yourself, perhaps you have a friend or relative who shares your British Airways household account who you could encourage to join?  If you have friends who collect Clubcard points but don’t use them for Avios, please pass this offer on to them as well.

    Noticed yesterday Tesco selling M & S gift cards. I’m assuming i can use these for my food shopping. If so that will be a decent earner, especially with demise of 3V.

      Plus Boots as well, which is a new addition!

    • Liz says:

      M&S have been there for a few weeks now, also Boots, Vue and Odeon Cinemas, Jamie’s Italian and a few more new ones which is great.

    Very best of luck with the new site, Rob. I know there is a lot of search engine traffic relating to Nectar and Clubcard so hopefully the site will do well for you. I look forward to following it, although I may not pay much attention to Nectar, seems more effort than it’s worth most of the time.

    I love them.

    I got quite a few £thousands lol

    If this is purely a business venture to generate revenue from click traffic and ads, then fair enough. But I don’t think it will benefit the average existing hfp reader. Articles on general avios earning which have genuinely fresh content are already pretty sparse, and I suspect clubcard earning opportunities, even small ones are of broader interest than individual hotel schemes or reviews of lounges in far flung locations which most people will never visit.

    Don’t get me wrong, this site is a great resource, but including the smaller earning opportunities and indexing the content better to allow people to see what they are interested in would serve people better I think.

    • Rob says:

      It isn’t meant to benefit the existing HFP reader, frankly! It is meant to benefit the hundreds of people a day to come to HFP from Google searching for Clubcard information and then get scared off by all this frequent flyer talk 🙂

      If anything, you are more likely to see smaller Clubcard opportunities mentioned on HFP because I can do a quick link to Shopper Points and leave it at that.

      I doubt it will make more than 10% of the revenue that HFP makes but, if I am outsourcing most of the work, that’s fine.

    Dont know what everyone is bitching about the adverts – I have none of those banner/popup ads when I visit.

    Similar to HFP…
