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 pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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 (click here to visit the email sign-up page) – you won’t be overloaded with mail.

You can also add Shopper Points to your Twitter feed by clicking here or Facebook ‘likes’ by clicking here.  Remember that Facebook does not show you every article in your feed – you only see a selection.

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 can find full details and the application link at Shopper Points here.

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 want to know more, head over to Shopper Points now.

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.

    Very good idea, I’m sure it will be useful for me. Looking forward to reading about petrol deals, nectar deals etc.

  • @mkcol says:

    I didn’t get the usual automated email about this subject today – might be worth checking if it did indeed go.

  • Alan says:

    Good luck with the new venture, Rob – make sure you cover Morrison’s fuel deals too or Harry will come hunting you down 😉

  • Elena-MuslimTravelGirl says:

    Good luck with this Rob. It seems interesting and a great choice.

    Have bookmarked and joined the mailing list but I think you will need to filter out the more aggressive full page adverts that block the screen, I clicked on the X in the right hand top corner to remove and it took me to the retailers website.
    Just some advise as I think being faced with these type of ads will deter people joining up or coming back.
    Good luck!

    Also your new sites mailing list sign up is not working for me, I never got the confirmation email link to subscribe, just a few new site issues to iron out.

  • HelenWB says:

    Good luck, hope it goes well.

    Thanks. Work in London so will keep an eye out for this leaflet unless anyone has a scan they could send raffles?
